Hi,


Well I've nearly spent 4 days trying to get a *stable* installation of zoomplayer + ffdshow with both windvd6 and sonic cinemaster codecs.... without luck.


I've successfully managed to get ffdshow working with both video codecs (including abstract filter for windvd) but ANY combination will cause a zoomplayer lockup (complete - task manager required to kill it) after a few minutes when I'm trying to play a DVD over my wireless network (108mps).


I've been playing media like DVDs over my wireless LAN for a while now so I know it works (although I do get occasional dropouts - freezes and then things will start playing again).


If I try to play the same DVD WITHOUT ffdshow I get no lockups. I don't actually see any stutters either due to dropped network packets which I presume if causing ffdshows problems.


I'm using:

Daemon tools 3.47

WinDVD6

SonicCineplayer

Zoomplayer Pro (latest)

AnyDVD (disabled)

ffdshow (sse2 but tried 3 other recent versions)


Can anyone recommend any solution, or things to try, or anywhere else to post to get answers to this?


Thanks

Jonathan

For what it's worth, I play MPEG4 files (divx, xvid) all the time over a 100Mbps wired Ethernet network using Zoomplayer and ffdshow, and I ordinarily have no problems at all -- certainly none that could be attributed to the network.


I have not tried playing MPEG2 files (DVD) however.

Yeah, but you are guaranteed a constant data rate pretty much on a wired network - no 1 second dropouts etc.


I'll try some tests later to see if I get the same problems locally if I install ffdshow - but I'm almost 100% it IS network related and it IS ffdshow causing the lockups.


As I said, without ffdshow network-based playback works fine. With ffdshow I get complete lockups.

I can play anything over a 100Mb LAN including 20mbs TS files and even DV video using Zoom Player and FFDShow.

Sure, but as I've said twice now you are guaranteed (pretty much) constant throughput on a WIRED network - which I'm not using. So I'm looking for ideas on why I can see complete lockups over a wireless network WITH ffdshow and non without it.
