I put the file extension in but streekdeck still wont recognize it. Is there something else to it.
Also I believe changing that mp4 exrtension to mp3 might work. You might not have file association mp4 to WMP10. ...just some ideas to try...
dude my system plays mp4 fine. its just it show nothing in streekdeck and when I put the sting in the registry it locks up streetdeck when I go to the video folder. its not the codec its streetdeck itself.
I never put that junk in my registry. I just installed 3ivx and it worked.
I wonder if he's trying to build thumbnails - my machine DOES get slow when he's trying to build thumbnails, and i have to work a while.
I do admit there is a general slowness getting videos to start playing in general. I assumed this was some complicated filter-graph nonsense; but yes, i have had "lockups" that took 30 seconds to unlock because SD was generating thumbnails for all my videos.
I also had 3GP videos that had to be pulled out of the video folder before it would work - they just choked streetdeck.
I imagine streetdeck isn't handling some sort of "get lost, i won't play your video" message correctly, and at the very least is blocking poorly on the video playback engine.
take all videos out of folder. see if SD works. Drop a few videos in at a time. see if they work. When you get the super broken video(s), send them to me and i'll take a look. i can give you email via pm.
yah 3ivx worked for me. But SD does not read the artist from the files that i imported using my iTunes. Any sugestions for that?
