Ok, so I am back on Tarma and am about to make what I (probably vainly) hope is my final attack on the MPlayer versus Windows Media Center Edition DVR problem.
The DLL in question that I am led to believe will decode this file is stored in
C:\Program Files\CyberLink\Shared Files\VideoFilter\CLVSD.ax on my machine. We shall update the codecs.conf file and see what happens, no? 🙂
And failure. I edited the file, copied the DLL into
C:\mplayer\codecs, and tried to play a video. What happened was this:
Opening video decoder: [dshow] DirectShow video codecs
Warning: DS_Filter() no such class object. (DLL=CLVSD.ax, r=0x80040111)
Failed to create DirectShow filter
ERROR: Could not open required DirectShow codec CLVSD.ax.
You need to upgrade/install the binary codecs package.
Go to http://mplayerhq.hu/homepage/dload.html
VDecoder init failed :(
Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x20525644.
And thus, the investigation continues.
