jmbattle Posted March 5, 2005 Share Posted March 5, 2005 Hey folks!Well, I'm so close to having the perfect, stripped-down XP setup it's not true!Testing under VPC, I select all components for removal (yes, including all the Media Player stuff and codecs), and just integrate some original XP drivers and VPC drivers from previous driver backups. Note that I *do not* use the 'Keep Media Player compatibility' option in nLite 99.8b5, as I gather this simply registers an ActiveX .ocx class to prevent the UI controls breaking in Mozilla/Firefox.From there, I use titou2k's WMP10_Stream&Codecs.exe package, as detailed in this thread.Next, I install Firefox and copy the npdsplay.dll plugin to it's 'plugins' folder.Using this bare configuration, I am able to play all streaming Windows Media, such as the BBC's wonderful online content in Firefox, with the attractive WMP9 interface.However, the strange things is - and this is the killer - I cannot play exactly the same media using Media Player Classic; either an .asx playlist or the mms://... *.wmv file that it points to. Locally downloaded .wmv files however, play perfectly.Can anyone help me out here? I'm so close...Cheers,JamesEDIT: You will need to correct the final MMS:// link manually...
