    Default mpeg 1 works in xp but not 98 or 2000

    Hello,
    I am very new to Director, I have built an interface with icons linking to 6 mpeg1 movies. after I made the projector and burned an autolaunch cd I put into a different xp system and it work great. Then I put it in a windows 98 computer and it launches the interface but when I push the icon for the link I see nothing the same happens in windows 2000. I checked the movies and they play find on each computer when I drag them into wmp but it will not work in the director projector. I made the projector on a windows XP machine using director 8.51. Thank you, all of you have been great help in the past.

    Something to do with the Media Players on 98 and 2000. I think you are required to install Media 9 or something like that. There is always a problem with playing MPeg files with Director.

    Alternatively, you can go buy yourself something like MPeg Advanced Xtra. That will take care of everything for you. It'll include the latest codec and Mpeg engine within your projector. It'll cost y ou a cool 299 USD.

    Or alternatively, compress everything into Quicktime format and use the quicktime xtra that is supplied with Director MX... but on the flip side, Quicktime movies are huge relative to Mpegs and the user must have QT installed on their machines...

    Hope that helps.

    Unfortunate Director support the mpg files on quicktime actually all video
    files has suportd by quicktime, check your 98 and 2000 computers and check
    if this machines have installed the last version of quicktime, I almost sure
    thats this is the solution for your problem.(Install Quicktime 6)
