I'm having issues with playing webstreams (WMP) in MediaPortal (more specific from DRipper). The weird thing is that the stream is playing fine in Windows Media Player or Internet Explorer directly. But in MP, I only get sound and no picture...

Here's a sample file:

Any ideas on how to make this work?

Bump, I have this same problem. Adding the ac3filter to postprocessing would not really be a proper solution for me. I tried it anyway and it doesn't work. Anyone has any other possible explanations and/or solutions?
