Now, my problem is that while playing DIVX, XVID, DVD's and everything else works fine, even playing DIVX movies from a shared CDROM on a networked computer through a linux box, videos encoded using Indeo's IV50, IV42 and IVeverythingelse do not work when played from mounted windows shares.
1 machine with several large harddrives and a bunch of network shares
1 machine with a projector, good sound system and all that crap, plus media player 10
What happens is, I open the video file through the mounted share (I:\) and WMP only plays the audio track. The file->properties window lists the file type as "Audio". HOWEVER, if I copy that file over to a local drive (C:, D: or E:), the file->properties window in WMP lists the file type as "Video", and I get both sound and video.
ALL other codecs work just fine across the network, just like Indeo's codecs did with WMP9.
If anyone of you have ANY clue as to what I could do to get WMP10 to recognize these files as video files even across a network, I'd sure like to know...
I've tried reinstalling the codecs, downloading other ones, erasing every god [bleep] codec so I can't play the file at all and then reinstalling them... It's just WMP10 making a mess of things.
Also, other players I don't really like (Media Player Classic, for instance) can play the files across the network with no problems. Could I somehow force WMP10 to think there's a video track?
