Now, this is what i was talking about? Any chance of adding this source?

Loving this plugin!
I noticed that there are plans to add download functionality. Are you aware of an old sourceforge project for downloading apple trailers:
SourceForge.net: Download Trailers V.2
It finished delevopment a while back, but still seems to function perfectly with the latest HD trailers on Apple.com. I thought the source may be useful to the plugin developer.
I keep getting the "unable to play file" error for the apple trailers.
I downloaded a trailer and opened it in GraphEdit
Video goes to ffdshow video decoder then to video renderer.
Audio goes to ffdshow audio decoder then to ac3 filter then to default directsound device.
It plays perfectly (audio through SPDIF, dolby digital)
What is going wrong INSIDE mediaportal?
I see this in the logfile:

Why is it playing perfectly in graphedit and not in MediaPortal?
What is your audio decoder in the Video section of Mediaportal?
I tried: AC3 Filter, MPA Decoder, ffdshow audio decoder.
All to no avail.
Also, when I played a .MOV in graphedit it used ac3 filter.
When I played a .mov in mediaportal (not via mytrailers, just myvideos) it works but DOESN'T use AC3 filter (just ffdshow audio decoder, mediaportal audio codec setting are on AC3 filter).
When i put AC3 filter as post-processing, it IS used.
This keeps getting weirder and weirder.
Have you installed Haali Media Splitter?
The codec settings inside MP configuration do not apply for mov, divx, mkv, avi file playback!
If you play a mov, then windows chooses the codecs to use, not mediaportal.
All i have installed is:
QuickTime Alternative (or install Quicktime from apple + quicktime direct show filter)
MPV/MPA (re-registered to get high merit, to force that they get used by windows)
and i have no issue playing apple trailers inside MyTrailers.
I ended up uninstalling ALL my codecs/filters and installing Haali, SAF & CoreAVC.
Now everything is working as I want it
Thanks for helping out.
What is SAF?

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.
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
