          Yeah also try unistalling previous codecs installed. I use a package all in one:

          http://free-codecs.com

          Also I believe changing that mp4 exrtension to mp3 might work. You might not have file association mp4 to WMP10. ...just some ideas to try...

            no no no! Get the free mp4 player at http://www.3ivx.com that's what i do on production machines.

            http://www.3ivx.com/download/windows.html

            It plays all my mp4 rips, the stuff i put on my video ipod, as well as the mp4s that come off my digital camera.

                  I never put that junk in my registry. I just installed 3ivx and it worked.

                  I wonder if he's trying to build thumbnails - my machine DOES get slow when he's trying to build thumbnails, and i have to work a while.

                  I do admit there is a general slowness getting videos to start playing in general. I assumed this was some complicated filter-graph nonsense; but yes, i have had "lockups" that took 30 seconds to unlock because SD was generating thumbnails for all my videos.


                  I also had 3GP videos that had to be pulled out of the video folder before it would work - they just choked streetdeck.

                  I imagine streetdeck isn't handling some sort of "get lost, i won't play your video" message correctly, and at the very least is blocking poorly on the video playback engine.



                  Suggestion:


                  take all videos out of folder. see if SD works. Drop a few videos in at a time. see if they work. When you get the super broken video(s), send them to me and i'll take a look. i can give you email via pm.

                      so how do u get it from not showing thumbnails in streekdeck. I have over 4000 videos and i think its just trying to load it all in. I just want the names of the videos and not the thumbnails. Any help would be appreciated. I try associating mp4 to WM10. WM10 plays it fine if i click on the file one by one but it will not load the library. Anyother way to make WM10 plays mp4 by default and load the librarys. I think that will fix my issue if I can get that to work.

                      "take all videos out of folder. see if SD works. Drop a few videos in at a time. see if they work. When you get the super broken video(s), send them to me and i'll take a look. i can give you email via pm."

                      I added one video to my folder and SD still crash. RR plays it perfectly. Not SD

                      Only thing I really like about the software is that the Navigation. As far as the rest goes the locking of the module when it feel the car is moving is great. Beside that all the other function needs alot more work on. Especially the MultiMon.

                        SD's media library does need a lot of work, that my personal opinion. There are few things that I don't like about it, but its only like I said personal preference.

                        One of the things is that if you have over 10000 tracks, when you do select by gender it take a long time to browse 10000 to bring up all hip-hop tracks for example...
