  1. Wanted to just check if there was a change from some internal engine to the WMP engine in the latest GameEx update? Updated last night and my videos aren't playing. They are Progetto video snaps, and I know they have issues with WMP, but they were working previously so just trying to identify the issue. (Or, similar question - is there a setting that may have changed that would make them not work - maybe a video player toggle of some sort in settings?) Thanks in advance for the insight/help!
  2. Hi all, i use PinballX and Overall, i am very happy. But it is a real Pain with the Codec Problem, why use PinballX this Video Format ? Why we cant use only a simple avi or other ? Maybe there is a Way to convert .f4v to a .mp4 ... is there a Converter for it ? I had try one, but dont Show it too. Anyone had do that, and it works (without Sharkcodec blabla) ? I will stay on my Windows System without an Extra Installation, the Videos should work fine also without "Sharky" ...
  3. This is a problem I've had for a couple of months now, and I've been unable to fix on my own. I have many retro computer commercials that I used to be able to play between emulated games in attract mode. I am using a cabinet dedicated to GameEx, running Windows XP, installed only Shark007 (the vista codec pack) without any pre-existing codec packs. I have set the codec pack to "use FFDShow" in the first tab. The problem: after playing the first video it shows a blank screen or the last frame of the video, while running the emulator in the background, which can be heard but not seen. The majority of the videos are FLV or MP4 and have been taken directly from YouTube. Works fine: Video thumbnails in gamelists, Multimedia section videos. This only affects attract mode. Strange: HideOS always loads and the desktop is always hidden, despite in Display settings, "Hide Desktop = No", and every emulator has "Show Desktop = Yes". The MAME section doesn't seem to have a setting for this. Ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
  4. I'm at a bit of a stumper - the rest of my hair is about gone lol. Any help with this will be greatly appricated . I am trying to lean more on using MP4 video snaps rather than AVI. The problem that I am having is: - When running GameEx, there appears to be a lag, or skips, only when the MP4 video snaps are playing with audio (when scrolling through games). The videos only play seamless during other times when there is no sound from the MP4 video. I'm pretty sure that this is some sort of codec issue...I hope. I have tried changing GameEx themes, but with the same results. I have opened the MP4 files in Windows Media Center, and all play fine through there, but for some reason, when the MP4 snap files are played with audio through GameEx, the video starts to lag and skip. I'm attaching the log and config files, as well as the installed codecs (doc) file that I exported from Shark007. If anyone can lead me in the right direction of tweaks, or tell me what I'm doing wrong, it will be greatly appriciated, and I will keep you in mind when I start Christmas Shopping next month . Thanks in advance! LC log.txt GameEx.ini installed codecs.txt
  5. Has anyone gotten mp4 video previews to work using the VLC player codecs? I've heard people suggest using Shark007 codecs but I'd rather not use those if possible. One reason is that I've read that it automatically installs browser toolbars and other adware automatically. But the real reason is that VLC is my preferred video player. In the video/movie player settings page in the Setup Wizard I have set the settings to use an external video player and pointed it to the vlc.exe file. Does anyone know if this changes the video player for the screensaver mode, video preview while browsing, and for manually playing videos in the multimedia section? Or does this only change the video player for the multimedia section? Anyway, right now, if I use the Setup Wizard to adjust my MAME settings page to point to the video previews (MP4 HI_QUAL downloaded from EmuMovies) then all artwork in GameEx does not work, including the videos. If I remove those videos, then all my artwork comes back (snaps, cabinets, marquees, etc). I'm running Windows XP with the latest GameEx version. Any other information needed for this topic? Thanks.
