MovieBox (private update)
« Reply #15 on: March 02, 2008, 04:06:58 PM »
I have done a small change to MovieBox.
If you want to get it, send me a private message telling me if you want the MCI or the plain SDK version.

What has changed:
- Use default movie size to auto-center the player.
- Higher audio level for the SDK version.
- Drag and drop support between two Explorer windows (to drop the movie file directly onto the moviebox.exe line in the target Explorer window).

MovieBox upgraded to version 2.00
« Reply #16 on: April 12, 2008, 11:06:01 AM »
Screen shot of Version 2.0



This version uses a new skinned interface (same as in the latest BassBox),
and supports matroska MKV multi-format (very often uses to embed HD movies)
(requires ffdshow codec + MatroskaSplitter or CCCP codec)

The zip file is attached to the first post of this thread.

MovieBox 2.0 (updated)
« Reply #17 on: April 13, 2008, 05:16:26 PM »
MovieBox 2 has been updated to fix a problem related to the audio level.

Using the audio seek tracker, while no movie was loaded, would cause a GPF, because the COM audio interface was using a null pointer (that of course is a NoNo).

I apologize to the two guys who download it already  :)

Thanks Patrice,

looks good! One thing- when I load file, the progressbar moves as the movie is played, but I see nothing, so I have to press that fullscreen button and then go back to windowed to see something.

Maybe it is CZ XP, maybe something else.


Thanks,
Petr

These 3 problems have been fixed:

1 - On some XP config, the movie was not shown until MovieBox resized.
2 - While resizing HD movie the aspect ratio was not kept.
3 - Mute mode was not preserved while moving the audio volume.

MovieBox 2.0 (new version updated)
« Reply #23 on: April 19, 2008, 10:06:41 PM »
MovieBox 2.0 has been updated.

Detection and display of HD movie has been improved, while the true video size is shown on the status bar.

True HD movie size is 1920 x 1080, when using this new version of MovieBox you will see that many movies claiming to be HD movie are indeed closer to HD ready than full HD ;)

The zip file is attached to the first post of this thread.

Hi Patrice,

thanks for the update. I did not installed the CCCP, as I have other codec pacs installed already and did not wanted to go into possible collision. Important fact - it worked great! 8)

P.S. MovieBox.inc is a monster file :)

Patrice,

I am now in state I am not able to do any work on MovieBox / BassBox. It is terrible, and I am not happy of it.
So I tried to create new background at least, I call it "Infernal". You can include it as background if you like.

Yes, and i have cleaned it up already to decrease the size, but there are still much to remove.

Would be nice to have a preprocessor to do this cleaning work, something like inclean, but for PB9...

About BassBox it is still written in plain PB 8.04, thus you can do any work you want with it, including writing new plugins  ;D

Patrice,

that is because I have no idea.
I got new PC last year, installed everything and forgot what codec pack I chose :) I know it was not CCCP as I would remember such a unusual name.

I presume it was K-Lite Codec Pack, but not sure. I looked in "Add/Remove programs" and nothing familiar there.

Petr has hit the nail on the head - it is actually a much harder question to answer than it may appear. I have loads of CODECs installed by various applications and I have no idea what is used and not used. For me, MovieBox played video but without sound on most movies, although these movies played with sound on other applications. With some trepidation, not wanting to upset my existing applications, I installed the CCCP package and MovieBox then worked with sound. Also, I'm glad to say, the other applications continue to work.

Does anyone is able to play HD movies, and then using which format: mpeg, wmv, mkv?

Note: If you install new codecs, always better to first uninstall the previous set.
