    MovieBox version 2.60

    MovieBox has been updated to version 2.60

    You can use the new SnapShot feature to grab a specific frame, and save it to a specific folder using one of this format: BMP, JPEG, TIFF

    The PB9 project is hosted on the José Roca's forum.
    It is based on the DrectX DirectShow API

    Chris,
    I tried now and it downloaded just fine for me. ZIP integrity check is also OK.

    Bye!

    Patrice,

    I can't seem to be able to download the PB 9 version.
    Every time I try to down it, it cuts out at about 5 meg so I get a corrupted file.

    I downloaded a 7 meg file from another web site without any problem.
    I just seems your download always stops part way for some unknown reason.

    MovieBox 2.0 (has been updated)

    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, 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 latest version is there

    Martin,

    Not yet, because that would require adding two new buttons (like in BassBox) to navigate forward and backward in the play list.

    Added to the wish list :xmas:

    MovieBox2 (updated)

    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.

    The new version is there

    Perfecto mundo Senior Patrice.

    While the cursor was on the volume control,
    I did put the mouse in a Sherman-William paint shaker
    and everything is fine now.

    The old "null pointer" beast have been killed once more.

    Again, thank for such beautiful work.

    Pierre,

    If I move the volume without loading any files the crash is immediate.
    Ok, this is something i can reproduce when there is no movie playing.
    Because then the pIBasicAudio pointer is null, thus I should test first for a valid COM object pointer.

    I will fix it, thanks!

    Hey Patrice,

    I was hoping you'd come back with this.

    Test was done with avi & wmv file.

    If I move the volume without loading any files the crash is immediate.

    When playing a file and moving the volume quickly and continuously
    then the crash will occur after a while.

    If I load a file and go in the pause mode then
    I can move the volume as much as I want without problems.

    Added: I also tryed on a different XP machine, the one with dx 9.0c, same result.

    Pierre,

    Just a last word about the MovieBox audio volume:

    It is based on the put_volume method of the IBasicAudio interface, as documented in MSDN there.

    And it is being used like this:

    CASE %ID_TRACK_VOL
    UseVolume& = MIN&(((100 - lParam) * -50) + 1250, 0)
    CALL IBasicAudio_put_Volume(pIBasicAudio, UseVolume&)

    as you can see nothing fancy (except COM), there must be really something wrong with your config or with the codec being used to play your movies.

    By the way what is the extension of the movies causing this havoc:
    - if AVI are they DivX or Xvid?
    - if WMV are they WMV1, WMV2, WMV3, WMVP?
    - mpeg or mpg?
    - MKV?
    - QT?
    - MOV?

    Pierre,

    MovieBox follows the latest DirectX specifications, thus using a wrong DirectX version is like trying to use a WinNT API on 95/98/ME.
    That's Microsoft not me.


    The graphics interface is splendid as usual.
    I really like you work Patrice.
    One of these days, I will have to buy your skin engine stuff...
    The MovieBox interface uses the same skin engine that I have provided in open source on the José Roca's forum.
    Search for the BassBox project, it is FREE, and i have put many of my secrets in it to learn from!

    I see,

    I did also Try with XP sp2, DX 9.0c
    and have the same crash problem,
    I must say that I do not feel like uninstall and reinstall
    codec files, so I'll pass my turn for this one.

    Les codecs ne savent pas utiliser DirectX 10, il faut absolument installer DirectX 9 en plus !

    Because most movies are encoded to work on XP, the codec they are using are based on DirectX 9, also the VFW DirectX API is still based on DX9.

    Installing DirectX9 on VISTA won't affect DirectX10, they can work together!

    Indeed except WPF and DWM they are very few VISTA applications using DirectX10, and only a few graphic cards (even on VISTA) are able to use it already, and these graphic cards are much more expensive than those installed in standard on most of the computers being sold.

    The price for a good graphic card that is DirectX 10 certified is almost Euro 150.
