I just recently acquired some avi files of a tv show and I put them into my folder for tv-series and tv series found and named them correctly, but when I go to play the video it just flashes a black screen real quick and then I am back ot the menu(tv series menu) I tried to re-import them and everything but nothing is working. Am I missing something? I thought that mptv series could play avi files. I know the files work on vlc so there should be anything wrong with the files. Here are my logs. and the show that isnt working is "eastbound and down" Thanks for anyone who can give me some help.

    MP uses Directshow filters for playback (same as Windows Media Player), VLC has its own filters, so you need something like FFDShow installed to play these files.

    Grab the latest version from here SourceForge.net: ffdshow tryouts: Files

    Only recommendation is under audio\codec settings, change the MP1\MP2 setting from libmad to libavcodec, this handles mono better and still keeps high quality mpeg out for sound.

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...
