No need to double post to ask the same question twice in a row.

Slowdown is typically caused by having a crappy video card, outdated drivers, or having texture caching enabled in Aali's driver on an ATI card.

# store external textures in a compressed cache for increased performance
# compression is not lossless, some artifacts may appear when this option is in use
# texture cache does NOT update automatically if the source image changes, however, deleting anything from the cache
# will cause that file to be recreated from the source
compress_textures = no

This is how it should be in your configuration.

no it didnt work, i guess my computer is not good enough, thanks anyway.
what do I have to put in the movie path to make it run the fmv's on the disks?
(in other words normally)

EDIT
ok, I took DLPB's advice and read the thread properly, and found people with the same problems, and most were solved, so I tried a few things and found that my version of alli's custom graphics driver was 8b, so I downloaded the 10b version and found that the fmv's still ran in slomo even with texture caching disabled, there was somebody at the bottom of page 10 talking about fmv slow down and they didn't get answered, although not everyone has encountered the slowdown problem, those who have dont know how to remedy it, but for now Im using the regular fmv's until a sollution reveals itself

You either buy a better computer or hope Aali figures out some way to better optimize movie playback.  Or you yourself convert the movies to a smaller size.

Hey guys.

I used to lurk around here back in the day. I just recently got the urge to get Final Fantasy 7 and 8 back on my pc and running smooth when I (re)stumbled upon this site. In any case, I noticed that the original eidos logo video looked god awful, and you guys didn't include it in the restoration (of course not). That being said, I thought the FF8 eidos logo looked much better--so I extracted it, converted it, and uploaded it for anyone who would like to use it with FF7.

All you have to do is stick it in with the rest of the movies.

Cheers!

I used ff8 eidos with the avalanche logo I think.  It is a bit better but at the end of the day I left it out of official release because it is not from FF7.

Yea I get it. But the original eidos logo for FF7 is....just...so....BAD.

I am currently considering trying to find a newer, higher res eidos logo to replace it with. But most games nowadays don't use video for the opening credits. The idea is to get a higher res eidos logo and a higher res squaresoft logo to go with my new high res title screen.

Any thoughts?

No idea...  haven't looked into logos really :)  Only thing I can think of for Squaresoft is to extract the texture from FF8 and then use something like Perfect Resize on it.

The one thing I did find that is in 720p is an eidos montreal logo on youtube. I fugre you could extract it and use video editing tools to remove the montreal moniker. As for the squaresoft logo, I'm sure there are high res iterations of it already online. All that would be left to do is animate it and convert it to Indeo avi.
