Need PC-Based Movie Player for MPEG2

Discussion in 'Matrox' started by Danny, Jul 12, 2004.

    Suggestions, please, for a PC-based movie player that will run 24/7/forever:

    Plays MPEG2. Prefer to also handle other formats like VOB, MJPEG, AVI, and
    possibly WMV, RM, etc.

    Plays clips seemlessly, back-to-back, frame-to-frame, without pauses (video
    black or other disturbances), hesitation, or jerkiness

    Playlist from ASCII text that can be changed while the playlist is underway

    Output selectable to a dedicated card (eg. Matrox RT.X10, NTSC) (not the
    computer monitor)


    Thanks so much, Danny

    Maybe the Win32 version of Mplayer will do what you want. I've used it
    under Linux to do the sort of thing you want. Not sure how good your
    windows shell scripting or VBS skills are, but you might need to roll your
    own logic to wrap up mplayer. I'm not aware of any point-and-drool windows
    apps that do what you want (possibly Winamp...but never tried it).

    Cheers,

    James
