    It's extrange, when i try to play a video file the first time (after starting MP) i get a black screen, but i can hear the audio... if i minimize the playback to a small window in the bottom, then i can see the picture. Then if i stop the playback and i open the video again, i works fine... this happens with all videos (divx, xvid, mov, etc).

    I'll try to send you the logs later...

    regards,

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
