    MediaPortal Version: 1.1 BETA


    I have a bug with the TVGemist plugin as everyone else see thread tv-gemisthere that the plug doesn't work anymore with the BETA release. (no video with bassengine). I checked out what is wrong. According to the source of 3.1.2 there is nothing wrong. It calls g_Player.Play(url) which should be fine. The trouble is that the supplied url's from the sites aren't a direct link to the wmv files. In a correct way the procedure g_Player.PlayVideoStream(url); should be called. But this only works for direct wmv files.
    Why did it work in ALPHA version?
    Well in alpha version there was a mistake or future in property assignment. In the core.dll there is a file called AudioPlayerWMP9.cs
    . In this file the capabilties are set for the player. In ALPHA version this property "HasVideo" is set to true;.
    In BETA version the property "HasVideo" is set to false;
    The player renders the file only as a audio in the BETA version. I tested this and changing the value back to true fixes the problem.
