i am having a problem with my dvd i have power dvd installed and the dvd's will play just fine on it but if i click on dvd in CF it wont start the dvd jstu sits on the dvd player screenn and thats it dosnt freeze CF or my computer. what coudl be wrong????
I have a similar issue. When I start a DVD in CF, I can't play it. I can't because if I click on the screen, the controls come up. Then I click again, they go away, then I click again, they're there again. I can't click "Play Movie" on the DVD, because when I click the screen the controls get in the way. Is there a fix for this or am I just stupid? Hah
Edit: I mean that the DVD loads just fine, but I can't access the DVD's menu's because the controls get in the way of me clicking on the screen. Thanks in advance.
Oops, sorry for the reitteration then. Is it fixed only for the final release? Because my RC5 release is only a few days old. Just wondering.
PowerDVD 6 and 7 failed for me too (CF+WMP no pic) ... I installed a WMP plugin to fix this...
For those of you witch has problems with playing DVD in CF 5, I can tell you how I finally got min to work.
I have tried to installed different DVD players such DVD X player, Power DVD and many more, but with out any result.
With Power DVD installed you can watch DVD in windows, but when using CF its freezing ore crazing. That why I will conclude that CF and power DVD can not work together.
To get DVD player to work in CF I have don following
If no WMP installed, install WMP 7.0 ore higher.
Installed WINDVD (for installation of WINDVD WMP is required)
Now my DVD player works in CF... Only issue, is the known bug with the DVD menu
I use WINDVD 5
What I mean is the CF menu (play, next, past, volume control and menu exedra, exedra) is popping up if you click the screen, thereby you are not able to use the inserted DVD ROOT menu, if all the features is placed in the button of the screen. If Root menu is placed above the CF menu its ok
I think there have been reported a Bug about this issue, but havenít search the forum.
The important thing is, that I got it to work (havenít tested with USB DVD drive yet)
But what is you comment on Power DVD. I have tried to install Power DVD 6 and 7. but CF crash with this installation...
And as a conclusion for playing DVD in CF. WMP have to be installed together with a compatible plug-in player for WMP, but not being Power DVD?
