    PowerDVD porblems

    Hi i've been at this for months to no avail, i'm hoping someones got an answer because i've hit the wall.

    I've followed all the steps to get internal and external DVD to work in RR on a number of different skins but i keep getting the same problem.

    Right now i'm trying to get powerdvd working because its my prefered method but i'll take any thing i can get because im at my wits end.

    When I launch power dvd from my dvd button (LOAD;PowerDVD_player.skin) the screen launches, it takes a few seconds but soon i will hear the dvd start but i get no video. On the top left of my screen the words "control" appear and the rest is transparent, no video. My cursor will also keep defaulting back to teh top left of the screen whenever i move it.

    I've included a screen shot. has any one got any ideas? i've even disabled hardware accelartion but that didnt help.

    Im not too sure what skin ur using, would be useful im using cdrskull's FU skin, and Got DVD working fine using powerdvd.

    Change or Add the below line in place of ur (LOAD;PowerDVD_player.skin) in FU's case, its menu.txt.
    &mainbut3=DVD@icons\dvd.png@LOAD;powerdvd_player.s kin;C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\powerDVD.exe;DVD&

    i guess u just need to add the location

    NOTE: &mainbut3 is the button location

    that should get u goin

    which version of Powerdvd

    are you useing, 6 is the best to embed, check your window name in the config.

    also try this button code:

    "LOAD;PowerDVD_player.skin","DVD"
    Riderunner / Genesis
    Plugin Breaker in test BassRR Plugin Player, Wifiman_NET
    New Home for Genesis & BassRR :adding to site ,, Hellfyre night
    Bassrr Beta Release :Version 1.3.7
    Movie_info Release :Version 3.1.0
    Wifiman_NET:Version 1.0.0

    COOL! I installed v6 (I had v7) and now i can see video not just audio! =)

    but now the dvd doesnt seem to fit in rr properly, seems like its in fullscreen mode, plus i keep getting the word "controls" in the top left of the screen and can't get back to rr when thats there... any thought?

    its ok i think i get it, im using the kb and mouse but obviously rr is designed for touchscreen, the movie runs full screen but if i was to click it (without kb n mouse) it will loose the menu bar if i click or make a mouse movement the control thing comes up and lets me use the menu which is good becuase its touchscreen so the prob with the controls dissapearing wheni move the mouse wont happen in a touchscreen environment.

    That right?

    in a touch screen environment, its the same, when u touch the screen, the "control" pops up then u hit that and it brings up the DVD menu system, then u can go from there, its perfectly normal

    The idea of "controls" is so you can click on a DVD menu option (possibly where the controls are), meaning, you'll only bring up the controls when you need them to (by clicking "Controls").

    I've had some problems with Power DVD v6, it wont play even on standalone mode. Searching for the error code found out it was supposed to be PowerDVD wasnt installed as Administrator. I went to Power DVD 4 and all is fine.

    This is how I got it to work with RR. In settings:
    General tab:
    Uncheck Play Automatically Upon Disc Insert
    Uncheck Show Warning Messages
    Uncheck Show Icon in System Tray
    Uncheck Run PowerDVD Automatically at Windows startup
    Check Show Tooltips
    in Advanced:
    Disable Toolbar
    Disable OSD

    and Video Tab:
    Uncheck Hardware Acceleration
    Uncheck Run Full Screen
    Check Keep Aspect Ratio
    Check Screen is Always On Top

    If I dont do the last one, I can hear the video playing but the screen is showing what it last showed (as if the video driver wont show video playing if its not On Top).

    But having Screen is Always On Top is probably the reason why sometimes click on the screen to bring up Control does not work. I'd prefer if there was a corner button that's always there, click on the button and it brings out the Control Panel in the skin.

    I guess its up to individual preference
