Hi

Windows Media Player 11, isn't that a beta version? The trouble could be with that?

Just a thought...

Have you tried reinstalling NBDX?

Yes. Nothing, still the same problem... I am think maybe the new version of DirectX has to do something...

It could be a corrupted Media Player installation. Can you try reinstalling Media Player 11?

Also, can Windows Media Player play the same mp3 file?

Do other types of files make any difference?

No time at the moment for detailed feedback... but will investigate more in due course.

I have Media Player 11 Beta and NBDX installed and get very poor performance (jerky) or failure to play at all with .wmv media.
All work correctly in Media Player 11Beta itself.

.avi's generally OK
.wav generally OK
.mp3's variable jerky

Windows XP Pro SP2
Athlon 64
SoundMax HD Audio

I try to download a copy of the Media Player 11 beta and see if I can duplicate this problem.

NeoBookDX doesn't actually play video itself. Basically, it let's the Windows DirectX/DirectShow library handle the loading and playing. DirectX/DirectShow is usually distributed with Windows Media Player but it's technically a separate component. Windows Media Player uses DirectX/DirectShow for some of it's functions but not all.

Don`t ask me why but Media Player 11 and NBDX seem to be working correctly now where it definitely wasn`t before... except for one or two odd wmv files where it reports unsupported media stream (which weren`t a problem with V10) ... The wmv's reporting "unsupported Media Stream" won`t play in Media Player either.

Maybe there was something running in the background that was using a lot of processor time? Google desktop and some aniti-virus programs will often do that. If it happens again, take a look at Windows Task Manager and see if you tell what's going on.

Funny you should say that...

Upgraded to Skype 2.5 a couple of days ago and it appears to be responsible for all sorts of slow responses and lockups... not apparent when it's not running.. possible culprit

Domino,

It's not currupt.... MOST versions of Skype are problematic on MY machine because of the system resources it requires.... and I won't even install 2.5 because everyone I know who has tried it has the same issues with it. Too bad this product was purchased by eBay as they are absolutely dropping the ball on a previously wonderful product. I've switched back to YIM meanwhile.

I wish someone would release a VOIP plugin worth a #$% (HINT HINT... you know who you are) :D

Cheers
