libdivx.so
« on: September 26, 2007, 12:19:04 pm »
Can I upgrade the divx codec without effecting the workings of LMCE?
Many of my my transcoded movies was transcoded using the divx 6 codec. Some even contain menus that is not supported in the earlier versions of divx.
which version comes with LMCE?
MOBO: Asus A8V Deluxe
CPU   :AMD 64 Athalon 3500
RAM   : 1.5 GB Ram
GPU   : Nvidia 6600GT
PVR   : Leadtek Winfast XP2000
Bluetooth dongle for orbitor software on Nokia 6600
This setup works like a charm! Maybe just a little more ram ;-)

Which application is used in the wrapper that display media files like AVIs or MPGs? Is it xine or kaffiene?
I will get this working and create a WIKI for it. It will be great if we can play DIVX6 files. For those who are interested, the libs can be obtained here:
DOWNLOAD:http://download.divx.com/labs/divx611-20060201-gcc4.0.1.tar.gz
MORE INFO:http://labs.divx.com/DivXLinuxCodec

It does contain an API, and developer documentation, so we can do some tweaking. But seeing as this is fairly old, im sure it has been incorporated for xine as well as kaffiene by now

The default application for videos on a media director is Xine. It works usinge a plugin/player combination.
The plugin runs on the CORE in teh DCERouter memory space and effectively can stream the file. The Player runs on the Media Directors and either plays the stream or if there is only one consumer I think it opens the file URL directly.

I can't see any reason why codecs can't be upgraded, they can be added.

Let us know you results, wiki entry would be great and I guess add a Mantis as a feature request to get it in the next release as well.
