Mpeg2 stream (1 Viewer)

Hi,
I'm writing a playout application using Mpeg2 file and XCard.

I'm looking for a mode to play many files consecutively without the black video between the file. ( the black video appears when I change the graph to load the next file).
I saw that many other software usea private directX filter that load an Mpeg file from a Cue_In point to a Cue_Out point and than the In and Out fron another file creating a single stream to sent to Xcard.

Can you help me? I'm sorry to use your forum for another argument but I just looking fro a directX filer (or othen think) but I didn't find it and I see on Sigmadesigns forum you want to support Xcard in Media Portal.
I hope you have understood, (sorry for my English :) )

Hi Andrea -

but I didn't find it and I see on Sigmadesigns forum you want to support Xcard in Media Portal

We rely on DX9 to accelerate the rendering of our GUI and as such the XCard is not suitable for use with Media Portal. IIRC it was a member of the community made that post on Sigma's forum and that was quite some time ago.

Possibly someone else can point you in the right direction re. your custom filter requirements.

The reality of it is that the XCard is awesome for playing fullscreen video on chronically old boxes, and with very good quality but most DX9 cards can offer the same basic benefits plus lots more for the same $$. Mine hasn't been used for 2 years or more.

Cheers,
Smirnoff.

.

The reality is that is that people don't want some lame graphic card to play video back because the quality isn't good enough -not to mention you can't use the machine for anything else if you do that.

Yes, that’s planned. The new installer (completely reworked with new GUI) is basically ready, but the alternative TV plugins are not fully finalized. After that you’ll be able to select a TV engine within the installer :)

Hey guys, I guess you read many posting here about TV stuttering. Therefore I'm sorry to write a similar question to this topic. However, i think, this posting is a bit different from most of the other postings: Here is my scenario: Mediaportal is running at my home for several years now and without any problems. It's a great...

I personally haven't received any PM, but either way, I don't think there's much more that I can offer you. Owlsroost is the expert when it comes to problems with client-side playback. As I've previously said, I don't read too much into this. This is partially right and partially wrong. Yes, MediaPortal has a service ("TV Server" /...

Yeah, correct. Although v3.28 can also work normally, but it can take long before the decryption takes place. If it takes too long >> black screen + audio (on my system). Or you can use the Mascom USB CI-Programmer (if you have one)
