Could this be useful in/with eComStation multimedia?   ???

Hi BigWarpGuy

Possibly... but I use the win32 codec packages specified for WarpVision and MPlayer respectively and they work fine.

I did ask Vlad (WarpVision developer at the time) about the free codecs package and his response was along the lines of there is nothing in the free codecs package that is needed by WarpVision. I suspect the same may apply to MPlayer...

You can always download, test and report though  :-)

Regards

Pete

BWG,

My guess is that it is Windows cr@p and pirated at that. No doubt there is probably some spyware in it too. What I would like to see is a port of the following ...

Hmm... perhaps we should ask Paul Smedley right away? ;)

Thomas,

Nice find! Now, how to figure out how to cough up the bones to pay for it. I like the PayPal option. Have to come back when I got some more mullah (need more money for gas right now).

James
