    I am having a few issues and would like to know which codecs are being employed by MP.
    I have Graphstudio, which will show the default codecs used to play a file but not the ones that MP uses. I tried selecting the option to connect to a remote graph from within Graphstudio however no remote graph appears in the selection when playing MP3 music files and the option that appears when playing a video file results in no info being displayed (I hope that makes sense).

    On Vista you need to register proppage.dll (search the forum for it)
    to get GraphStudio fully working.

    I have the same problem with video files, but I run XP. I tried adding the proppage dll anyway but that didn't help. Any tips?

    On XP you do not have to register proppage lib separately.

    Just start in MP in debug mode (link is in a start menu),
    play your file, close MP and check the created zip file.
