    Playback in GBPVR worse that Media Player

    Hi,

    Just recently weird stuff has started to happen. When I play back divX files they play terribly. Audio plays okay, and video jumps to keep up with it. When I play them in Window Media Player they work fine. I thought GB-PVR used WMP for playback, so I'm a bit confused.

    I haven't done anything I suspect would cause this so I'm at a bit of a loss.

    I'd be very grateful if anyone had any pointers

    Reproduce the problem, then zip and attach your gbpvr.exe-native.log and I'll take a look.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot. Tried it a few times with reboots and no joy.
    Attached 2 logs, one where I tried multiple files, and one where I tried the one to replicate it.

    If you've any ideas that'd be great.

    Thanks!

    My two initial suggestions would be (1) try using Overlay instead of VMR to see if it helps, the is probably what WMP is using, or (2) try using a installing a different divx decoder. Its currently using the xvid decoder to playback divx files.

    18:27:53.375 VERBOSE Graph contains the following filters:
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - Default DirectSound Device
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - Video Renderer
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - MPEG Layer-3 Decoder
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - XviD MPEG-4 Video Decoder
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - AVI Splitter
    18:27:53.395 VERBOSE - C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Videos\TV\My Name Is Earl\My.Name.Is.Earl.S01E18.HDTV.XviD-XOR.avi
