I am trying to get xine to play back vc-1 video files from
hddvd/blurays (already decrypted of course), and have absolutely no
luck. Mplayer has no problem with this, as long as you indicate to use
ffmpeg's vc1 and not the win32 dll (black screen, why wouldn't the dll work?).
Just for the hell of it, I patched up xinelib to use the wvc1dmod.dll
for vc1 files and modified the mpeg demuxer with similar patch that was done to mplayer for .evo playback, and I get the same result as mplayer...black screen.
And when xine utilizes external ffmpeg, it gives back a message about not being able to decode...makes no sense. I know my libavcodec shared library contains the vc1 codec within.
Relevant output in bug-report for xine when using ffmpegvideo:
ffmpeg_video_dec: couldn't open decoder
video_decoder: no plugin available to handle 'Windows Media Video VC-1'
Please, if anyone has any idea why this occurs, or if you have
successfully done what I'm trying to do with xine, let me know. I know
mplayer can be used, but for what I want, I need xine to play it back.
