    sorry for the silly question, but have you tried just playing them using vlc? what happens? what format are they?

      windows media player?, i think RR has the capability of using Media Player Classic, which can play almost every video format(with the right codecs installed), true that VLC can do that also, but why not use MPC?
      BASSRR ==> [Audio Player/MusicDB/Cd Player/Ripper/Rate/Internet Radio/Audio Capture/Youtube Video]
      RRTube ==> [View/Download Youtube Videos]
      WifiMan ==> [Wifi Manager]
      RRec ==> [Audio Capture]

          VLC is cool!
          I'm yet to find a media file on any of my PC's that it won't play, and it lets you play direct from CD/DVD image files too

          MPC can't do that

              Old thread, but...

              VLC rocks because it doesn't use external codecs and has some spiffy hardware decoder functionality that other codecs don't seem to include. On my VIA board (MII 12000), the CPU utilization when playing a DivX file with MPC is 100% and it jitters (although that's better now that I'm using FFDSHOW for a codec). I play the same file in VLC and the CPU utilization is about 40%, HUGE difference. For those with slower machines, it's the difference between playable and not playable.

              As an aside, the MII 12000 can normally handle this video, even using the MPC player. My problem is that I had to rotate my lilliput, and when I set the VIA/S3 driver to rotate the screen it DISABLES DIRECTSHOW ACCELERATION! Sloppy driver.

                I have the same exact problem....In my opinion VLC should be the player of choice...What would need to be done to make it work?
