I have no idea if it is possible or not ... Meanwhile lot of files are in 3D (side by side) which the TV can handle. Only the OSD is totaly broken of course as the TV simply takes the full picture and divides it to reproduce the 3D Picture. So ... the questions are: Is there a way to flag a 3D movie so MP recognises that it is...

No, since if you pack 1920x1080 texture to 2048x2048 texture you will 1) gain no real performance benefit - cached texture is nothing more than a texture in GPU memory 2) will just waste GPU RAM - it will be hard to try to fit textures around the 1920x1080 sized texture What texture atlases is trying to improve is to reduce the...

This might be the solution to my problem. My pc runs very hot (and loud!) when sitting in Basic Home (using StreamedMP). However, when I play a movie, even something in HD, it cools down. I believe my CPU is processing all of the graphics, and therefore is working hard while on BasicHome. But then the nvidia GPU takes over when...

Hello, Catavolt no, I will not give up! I'm tough. but I thank you for your hard work, I ask just the addition of controls, CATAVOLT, your skin is good, I appreciate it! but the shape is different depending on the skin! the addition of functions is not useless.

+1 It really makes skinning complicated that some plugins (or built-in plugins) only will show your #variablewhatever if it is a label and not a fadelabel. Then you need to figure out what the maxlenght of this unknown variable MIGHT be, and pad other elements out of its way.
