    I'm not exactly sure what version it is... I just had a look see and because it's built-in there is no docs on it. Do you have "use built in player" checked in RRconfig?

    Your right about the synopsis stuff, there are few skins that actually use it. I believe it was a feature adopted from the late great MediaCar (if you take a look at the skin it should be in there)

    Here is the docs from the skincommand.txt:

    Code:
    /, (R) Album TEXT art*
    /,  x   y   w   h   r   g   b   pt font
    /,  --- --- --- --- --- --- --- -- ----
    RXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XX,"Arial:B"
    
    The above tag defines where the TEXT art of the Album/Movie/Application will be displayed in the screen.

    That is not the issue - I have the space, and am minimizing the need to XVID anything or MP4, DIVX, whatever --- this is the exception of the collection and when you use DVD Shrink I get a great DVD in 2GB usually and never pull all the crap with it. So this is not a depate of formats - trust me if I wanted to blow the time to encode I would - I agree with everyone on that. There are some I'd just prefer leave as ISO's. So here is the skinny.

    You rent/buy a DVD - store as ISO for in house which is the initial RIP. I then don't want to have to encode again for car - but do with some stuff coming off of about 2TB of HTPC iron. It's simply a convenience factor.

    Heck - for the reality you can walk into blockbuster, use the CarPC to DVDshrink to ISO in the car, and return your movie minus the late charge. Then drop on HTPC system when you get home ;-)

    Dinasty - very odd this would not work for me, and assume although built-in it is still using the MPC engine for that playback. Now I will never sleep until I figure this out especially if you have it working ;-)

    I am using the latest bits - internal player - select ISO and simply does nothing. I get the same behavior with the standalone MPC client and heve everything checked there. Any help would be killer and the simple fact you verified this should work would be awesome.

    Can you try to drop an ISO into the MPC app in your RR dir and see if it starts cranking that way? If so I will then compare MPC rev's....

    Much thanks for the synopsis piece!!!!!!

    Dinasty:

    Ok - for verification and purification I am running:

    1 - Super clean setup of RR, BMV skin (everything else backup'd)
    2 - MPC latest which I think was 6.4.9 the older did not work either
    3 - Use built-in player selected, and a path to some ISO's
    4 - NO-GO when loading those ISO's as video files
    5 - If mounted - they play with DVD player...

    Trust me - I am open to any guidance please --- especially if you have this working it should be easy for me to fix and we know it ain't a codec issue which helps more ....

    MPC/RR playing native ISO DVD Files....(?)

    Dinasty,

    Well you were correct - after searching the entire NET for about 5 hours now I have about 5 sightings of people lucky enough to have this cooking - but seems like "how" is the big question. The link below is the best example of my challenge and zero fix - very odd since I am playing them as mounted DVD's fine so one would think this is not a codec issue..... Man this one baffles me

    http://www.videohelp.com/forum/archive/t288356.html

    Any help is appreciated?

    sorry m8 was at class,

    What do ya know! I had have a laptop here with a fresh install of XP Home SP2 and I tried it out on there with a couple of configurations and it didn't play (same results as you). I can see the ISO on the directory list but it just doesn't play.

    Here is the first config i tried:

    XP Home SP2 (no codecs or os updates)
    Latest RR Binary
    Mazda 6 Console skin
    Installed DVD Shrink and made a quick ISO from a dvd extra
    Tried playing from RR's built in player (No go)
    Tried playing from MPC 6490 standalone (No go)

    The next steps I added individually and tested after each install...

    Next i added WMP11 beta (for the codecs)
    Installed kLite Codecs Basic
    Installed kLite Codecs Standard
    Installed kLite Codecs Full

    So basically theres something here on my Desktop that allows this to work. Lets see if I can't single it out for ya

    for the record, I have Alcohol 120%, WinDVD 7, Nero Premium and VLC Media Player installed on my desktop.

    All the ISO images are in Alcohol 120's main file list, but I have only one mounted at any given time. This is getting fishy.

    I'm with ya and APPRECIATE IT BIG TIME..... There is NO DOUBT somehow this works but the recipe is not public or well defined as you saw in that post, DiNasty here is another, but we are beyond this. But proof this does work its the damn recipe. This is really a big thing for me so am trying like hell to get it cookin.... I am gonna use Gspot and start pulling codecs and reinstalling to see if I can adjust that way, I won't sleep :-)
