Hi,

The last week or so I've been getting quite familiar with the different functions within the wonderful MP.

The only thing I've yet to figure out is how to enable the web browser plugin for MP. I've seen the plugin mentioned several times, to my understanding it was supposed to be installed "automatically" along with MP. However I can't seem to find this plugin anywhere within the MP setup.
I also haven't been able to fint it on the web.

Could anyone please tell me how to incorporate the web browser into my MP, I'd bee very thankful. It is the only ability I'm currently missing in my MP.


Thank you in advance!

Good luck with the WebBrowser plugin on RC2 or later at least. It has been neglected and it pretty much unusable (as far as I know).

Not sure about RC1, I started in at RC2. Check the numerous WebBrowser plugin threads around for information about its current status.I think perhaps the developer was going to do some work on it? I am not sure though.

mPod: Is it actually functional in RC2 and later CVS releases? I tried it out when I first got RC2 and it was difficult to navigate, crashed when entering URLs sometimes and was impossible to exit without using Alt-F4.

Someone who knows how to use the webbrowser with a Haupauge 45 button remote?
You can't, as long as the webbrowser plugin doesn't get extended to use ACTIONS instead of keystrokes. So that's not possible yet.

jawbroken: I can't tell you more details, I'm not using that plugin and don't know the interna of it. Just try it...

Yeah, I have tried it as I said above. It doesn't really seem usable in its current form, at least for me. I was just wondering if anyone had some sort of tip on getting it working, is all.

Hello @aspik, thanks for that screenshot! Now I finally understand where to enable 'ATSC Closed Captions' -- not in the right-click Player configuration menu > Subtitle but in Settings > Players > Video player > Subtitles. And yes by enabling the option there, ATSC subtitles are indeed being shown in my local OTA streams. Player...

I'm a returnee to MP after several years and want to use my CEC remote box. I have the mpe1 files but have no idea where to copy them to. Can anyone point me in the right direction as my memory of the config is hazy and probably out of date anyway.

MP1 MP2 Feedback for MP2 DE
Hi. This depends on the used format. If you use "Full" SBS or TAB then the quality is the same as MVC. But you're right, normally the "Half" formats are widely used. MP2 can play Full SBS and TAB without issues and external players. Even the whole GUI is in 3D then... It's only a matter of the video source. Imho the "Full" formats...
