    Dead Ends %$@#$%@#$ Any look here.

    As you all know, I was working on a completely new DVD player.

    The first version of FrodoDVD was based off the mswebdvd control.
    It works nice, but the feature set is less than impressive.

    ------------
    The new version I have been working on is based off of msvidctl with
    msvidwebdvd. Everything works great except that it only seems to
    work on about half the machines I've tried it on.

    I then decided to do a program in directshow. I built the filter graphs
    manually, and scaling works well. Only problem is I can't get a reference
    in vb to the object I need for control.

    So now I've reached two dead ends.
    ----------------------

    My plans:

    I plan to finish up the one based off the msvidctl and msvidwebdvd
    and release it as experimental, I would appreciate feedback on what
    works and what does not.

    At a later date, I will reinstall VS.Net and write an application in VB.Net
    that will do what I need.

    I've got about 5 machines here at my house I can test with and give feedback. Perhaps I can figure out what is causing it not to work on some computers.
    The be honest though, I never really play DVDs in my carputer. Just divx and mpgs.

    I have several machines to try it on in various stages of service pack releases from NT-XP Pro...let me know if you'd like any help i'd be happy to do custom installations to see at what point it stops working (as far as popular programs/drivers/service packs go)
