Hello,

I'm curious, is there any way to completly remove the miniview which is shown in the menus after you exit the movieplayer? In other words, I want MP to be dead quiet after I press escape. In my opinion the miniview is just an annoyance.

Also, when I bring up the OSD during movie playback, the movie get darkened, is this also possible to remove?

Keep up the good work.

    Hi,

    1) I "fear" this is only possible by editing the code and compile your own MP version.

    2) I assume (you could have filled out the support template), that you have set overlay as video renderer, set it to VMR9 renderless.

    Righto.

    Hm. Overlay is the only renderer I seem to be able to use if I want to use the OSD at all. The others make the movie lag seconds behind. Probably due to lowend gfx adapter (Geforce MX400).

    And correct, I stand ashamed. Stupid mistake not filling it out. *slaps own wrists*.

    I will try to correct my wrongdoings by filling it now ;).

    Hi,

    jep. Sorry to say that, but your graphics card is to old. MP renders its GUI like a game and uses many DirectX enhancements. VMR9 works well with suiteable cards, the overlay support of MP is unfortunatly not as good. You should consider to buy a DX9 card.

    ATi: 9550 and above
    nVidia: 5200FX and above

    HTH, Flip. ;)

    Or just live with the darkness ;). The thing is that im going to put the damn thing in a very very small box. Which means using the onboard hardware. I guess I have to go back to the original plan and stick with an alternative. And use MP for my next project which is larger and meaner :D.

    Slightly more expensive option, get a newer board with good onboard video (new nvidia 6150) then which come in mATX.

    Well I have a working solution, I just wanted to try some more options. I had this mainboard lying around so I thought I might just try it. Im about to build a more modern system and will stick with more highend stuff then. This solution cost me about 100$ to get up going and it works perfectly well considering that price. The only thing I really miss is proper game support. But I guess that will have to wait until version two. :D.

    This box will be for my bedroom tv and the other for my livingroom with more power, so no biggie really. I just have to move into the livingroom for the Mame.

    By the way, can I switch to mysql or similiar without messing with the code? Thru odbc or something with MP?
