    video player bug

    I can't figure out what's happening with my video player...I wanted to see if anyone had the same problem or if guino had any ideas.

    With transitions enabled, this happens on both DVD and VIDEO. The menu hides, the top left status is shown (FULL or 16.9...), then that disappears, the cursor turns into a hand at the top leftmost corner, then one second later, the entire display goes black with audio still playing. The picture will come back when the mouse is moved or clicked, but the entire process repeats and the picture disappears again. It stays black even when the track ends and it switches to the next track. Keystrokes don't affect the picture, either.

    Using mplayerc with Auto Hide enabled.

    Same thing is happening to me since I enabled transitions. I haven't had time to look into it, but I'm eagerly awaiting some help on this one

    the new beta file didn't fix it for me. also, I can see the very right edge of the video playing, maybe one pixel wide, but the rest of the RR screen is black.

    Kill all background applications you can spare (at least for testing), then try again. I suspect of something generating keystrokes on the background and once RR hides the screen it immediately shows it again because it thinks a key was pressed. A simple reset may fix it too.

    the funny thing is that it does it on 4 different machines...the leanest machine doesn't have very much running on it, so there's not really anything to kill.

    I tried adding:
    /EFFECT-1
    to my skin file, but it still uses transitions for that specific skin...



    simple reset> reset what?

    okay, so it is happening when I have "use built in player" unchecked.
    If builtinvideo=false, I get the scenario described above.

    If I want to use mplayerc.exe for videos as well as DVDs, don't I need to set this to false for my videos? If so, then I get the issue above.

    More importantly, is mplayerc superior to "RR's internal video player"? If not, I'll just use the internal player.
