Mini 12 and HD-WMV playback - 04-19-2009, 03:17 PM
Have you managed to play any of 720p WMV files ( http://www.microsoft.com/windows/window ... wcase.aspx )? VLC seems to play the VC-1 video fine, but it cannot decode the wmap audio channel. Other players decode the audio, but video aint smooth at all. What is your experience?
P.S. The H264 files, even 1080p, run without any problems in Windows XP.

I got 1080p working - 05-17-2009, 02:47 AM
make sure you have the latest video driver from dell installed.
on my mini 10 driver CD it came with some extras for the not yet released tv tuner card.
the utility that i used was the codec pack.....and i also installed halli media spliter which you can google on your own.
these three things got my ripped blueray movies streaming perfectly
I only have a couple of blueray movies that i own but one of them has a rediculous bitrate...."step into liquid" and it played flawlessly.
I have to use windows media player for it to be smooth....no other player works (for free that is)
i used ripbot264 to make PERFECT no loss rips into the mp4 format.
i was blown away that my most intense rip of "step into liquid" documentary on surfing played flawlessly.
i must report success on windows xp on the mini 10.
