    MCE 2005 Replacement

    So I have MCE 2005 and its great. Bad thing is no DivX support. I can add a icon to open up the Divx playa but that doesnt have a cataloging feature like MCE does for mp3s and dvds.
    Question: is there a know hack/plug-in for cataloging my divX files?
    or
    is their a similar front-end that i could use just for divXor .iso?

    Are you serious about the DivX support? That sucks. You might try media portal. http://mediaportal.sourceforge.net/ or meedio http://www.meedio.com/ or some other.

    I have MCE 2005 and have hundreds of Divx movies. Might want to try downloading the codec again from divx.com.

    try the divx codec and the AC3 codec. If Media Player supports it then MCE2005 does.

    Thats not necessarily true, media player will play a number of badly written codecs that MCE does not. Since mce renders directly to a directx texture, the codec must be able to output a stream in a particular pixel format that MCE can convert to a directx texture in. I have run into this DivX problem myself before depending on the exact version / variant of the codec installed even though the files played fine in media player.

    Installed QuickTime and Real Alternative then added the following registry entries to get extra file types:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.divx] 
    @="divxFile" 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mov] 
    @="mov_auto_file" 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.movie] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpg4] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.qti] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.qtif] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.r1m] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.r3t] 
    "PerceivedType"="video" 
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rec]
