    I hope I am missing something really simple here, but I can't get the subtitles to work?
    Latest LAV (0.48) is installed and used in MP. Subtitles is working when using LAV with MPC.



    I have tried the ... option in MP when playing the files, selected the subtitles but it doesn't show.

    Other than that my first impressions are.... Very fast start of both software and video files! Also seems quite stable for a preview release.

    You neet a direct show filter (ie VSFilter formelly DirectVobSub) to display the subtitles in MP2.

    The default skin uses an open source font, that does not contains all letters (IIRC even the € sign is not present). Maybe you should try Reflexion that uses an another font IIRC.

    Ok this is good. I'll try that.

    How does the network share thingy discover locations? Any reasons why it wouldn't find my other PCs?

    Not really. Navigate to top left corner and the "X" will appear.

    Actually I've noted post from Albert

    Give me an 'external' and a away to turn off in GUI

    Which my quick hack simply broke the machine:) but point taken - the level of control I want and the removal of control allowed by 'users' will be delivered via separate management function and possible a bit of hack (done properly though) to plugins - to me, that's a winner, job done (or will be).


    Yes, but is then just a file browser - all files, no meta data - Video & Audio buttons provided more than just a file listing but I don't want full MovieInfo and TVInfo like capabilities, IMDB (or IMDB+) fulfils all my needs (not that Movie & TV Info plugins are not brilliant, they are, just not for me) so the subset of functions currently in MP1 VideoPlugin is a perfect match.


    Slow not an issue, this is an Alpha after all, just hope there is a 'no thumbnail' button, so resources are not used for functions I don't need.

    And again, many many thanks to you, Albert and all the other devs. Now I'll go back to somethging useful and see if I can hunt a bug or two to help.

    TTFN - J.

    Really good work. Tested the configuration and some local videos. All is fast and without problems.

    I like the idea of wpf-skins and a central PC holding all data (information). I think this is the best way for a future with .net :). Also the main thing besides playing all movies at my point is TV-part. If this will be also that good, as the alpha already is, we will get some really amazing software in future.

    Keep up the good work guys.

    Hi.
    This really was not my intention.
    Remote did not work too good so try using Mouse instead. If I move the Mouse there, the symbols are appearing, every time...
