  • DVD Playback problems

    Hi, I have been using Frodoplayer for a few months on my home computer and I am now just putting together the CarPC. I just got the slim slot load dvd drive in today and I hooked it up and got it working. I can watch DVDs with PowerDVD just fine, but in Frodoplayer, all I get is the controls and a black screen. I searched and found this thread:

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...&highlight=dvd

    These guys described the exact same problem that I have and Frodo suggested to type regsvr32.exe mswebdvd.dll in a command line and that fixed it for that guy. I tried that and mine is still not working. Has anyone else ran into this and got it working? Thanks.

      I just tried that. It didn't work. I got the same type of message when I used the first command:

      DllRegisterServer in mswebdvd.dll succeeded. with first command

      DllRegisterServer in c:\windows\system32\mswebdvd.dll succeeded. with second command.

      This is driving me nuts because I got FrodoPlayer working perfect on the home PC with dvd playback and now this is acting up. I also tried another dvd drive, but same problem. I didn't think that would be it because the slot load played dvds fine in powerdvd. Any other ideas?

        Also, I tried playing a DVD in windows media player itself and I get no video, just sound. I tried in PowerDVD again and it works fine. Does anyone know why it's doing this?

          Fixed it. It ended up being I was in resolution 1280x1024. When I changed it to 800x600, it worked fine. Thanks for the help anyways. By the way, I was using that resolution on a regular monitor because I'm still waiting on the screen to come in. So I wasn't using that res on a 7in, in case anyone was wondering why I would use that resolution.
