No Video Showing - Even Though It Was Yesterday

Post by DarthCrap » Sun Jul 16, 2006 11:13 am

I have cyberlink power cinema, and have recorded several TV programs.

When i try to open them in multiquence, the first ever time i open them, the video is shown.

After that, all i get is a blank video (with the multiquence logo).

It is an ordinary MPG file, both winamp and windows media player play them perfectly.

Can someone tell me what is going wrong here?

Restart Multiquence to see if the video appears again when you open the file. Try changing the View | Show contents option or the View | Contents threshold... setting.

Make sure you have the latest Cyberlink updates installed.

Nope, that didnt help...

But i have found the solution... and its wierd.

If you open the video in windows media player (and keep it open, but paused), then open the video in multiquence, it works.

If you don't have a windows media player (with the same video) open, u just see a blank video?

Do you know what causes this?

That is weird. Perhaps the Cyberlink Power Cinema decoder decodes the video to a hardware overlay initially, which Multiquence cannot access. By using Windows Media Player first, the hardware overlay is allocated to Media Player and a software overlay is used for Multiquence instead, which Multiquence can access.
