probs with vob/wmv9 files

Post by iasha »

I am having problems with wmv9 playback and also with vob files. I have purchased and installed the cinema plugin. when i try to play wmv9 files the screen does not shown any messages it just fills the screen with green and other colours. when i play vob files transferred from a dvd through my computer i get the same colours for a few seconds then the message.

cannot play video!
Codec "Ac3" "Profile" and "Level" is not supported.

I have loaded in the plugin twice, still the same. I have up to date firmware.

any ideas

The colours indicate that there is DRM or copy protection on the video - The dvd cannot simply be copied from the disc, it has to be 'ripped' to remove the copy protection, wmv9 video downloaded from the internet also sometimes has DRM on it - it cannot be removed from the wmv files.
