  • MCE 2005 Replacement

    So I have MCE 2005 and its great. Bad thing is no DivX support. I can add a icon to open up the Divx playa but that doesnt have a cataloging feature like MCE does for mp3s and dvds.
    Question: is there a know hack/plug-in for cataloging my divX files?
    or
    is their a similar front-end that i could use just for divXor .iso?

    Are you serious about the DivX support? That sucks. You might try media portal. http://mediaportal.sourceforge.net/ or meedio http://www.meedio.com/ or some other.
    There ain't no need to cry. Time's up. It's time to die....

      I have MCE 2005 and have hundreds of Divx movies. Might want to try downloading the codec again from divx.com.

        try the divx codec and the AC3 codec. If Media Player supports it then MCE2005 does.

            I have MCE 2005 and it'll even play real and quicktime if you set it up right.

              Thats not necessarily true, media player will play a number of badly written codecs that MCE does not. Since mce renders directly to a directx texture, the codec must be able to output a stream in a particular pixel format that MCE can convert to a directx texture in. I have run into this DivX problem myself before depending on the exact version / variant of the codec installed even though the files played fine in media player.

                How the hell did you get it to play Quicktime files?

                  Installed QuickTime and Real Alternative then added the following registry entries to get extra file types:

                  Code:
                  Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

                      3ivx codec will fix the divX problem.

                          to make things easier.. You could just download a codec pack.. One of the first things i do after installing Windows is installing K-Lite codec pack

                          here's a link

                            Does MCE work on the Epia M10k board with onboard graphics?

                            This is what i wanna do

                            I have the Epia 10k Board with 1Gig Ram.
                            Epia M10k, 1GB RAM, 40GB HDD, 7" Touch, DVD-RW Drive, Bluetooth, GPS, GPRS, all neatly hidden away in my Audi S2

                              I believe it does. MCE will work with pretty much any graphics card. It's the TV capture card that MCE only works with certain ones.
