  • DVD Playback Changes coming up in RR 6-1-2011 (WORK IN PROGRESS)

    1st if you didnt know, rr supports a DVD_PLAYER.skin
    (REBORN is a great example of this)
    there now is DVD_BROWSER.skin

    I have made some key changes to how DVD Playback works
    Im really talking about when using MPC-HC as DVD Player, but other players most applies
    (and focus is on MPC-HC right now, i will review others soon)

    Ther is now support for "DVD Folder" Playback and DVD .ISO mounting (using a command line mounter, virtual clone drive recomended)

    there is also a new RR.ini setting...
    (I have removed the "AUTO" method of playing DVDs, this was too ambigous)

    so...
    if you have a PHYSICALL DVD Drive you can set this as your primary DVD Drive
    RR.ini setting:

    rrDVDDrive=D

    What rr will do, if you of course set this setting:
    If a DVD disc is in the physical drive, going to DVD will automatically PLAY this DVD
    now once your in DVD, you can pick any other drive or folder or .iso from the DVD Browser(DVD_Browser.skin)
    now if NO Disc is in the "rrDVDDrive" playback of the dvd, will be the last played DVD Folder or .iso
    (providing it still exists at the time you go into DVD)

    To Recap the NEW DVD Player Settings:

    [DVD Player Setup]
    dvdplayer=MPCHCVidRR
    rrdvdDrive=D
    rrdvdfolderspath=E:\_RideRunnerTestMedia\DVD\


    rrdvdDrive, is the physical DVD Drive (if you got one)
    rrdvdfolderspath, is the path where you keep "DVD Folders" or "DVD .iso files"


    p.s. this is all based on DVD_PLAYER.skin & DVD_BROWSER.skin
    NOT VIDEO_PLAYER.skin


    im sure there will be many questions, ill help anyone who needs it
    who actually uses the new .iso or "DVD Folders"

    i will try to get a new skin for carwings done, to demo all this

    "Did you test it in carwings??"

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    to touch base on the .iso

    here is an example of the settings


    [DVD ISO]
    rrdvdISO=C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe
    rrdvdISODrive=Z
    rrdvdISOMountCMD=/l=Z
    rrdvdISOUnMountCMD=/u

    rrdvdISO, full path to the .exe of the command line mounter
    rrdvdISODrive, the drive you have assigned as your virtual drive, i like Z
    rrdvdISOMountCMD, the command line arguements to mount, in this case "/l=z" which isnt really need if you only have 1 vitrual drive
    rrdvdISOUnMountCMD, the command line arguments to unmount, in this case "/u", as of today, this isnt even used...

    mounting seems to take a few seconds, rr will wait up to 5 seconds for the iso to mount...
    i will prob add some sort of user notification we are in waiting...
