Driver revision: 6.14.0012.6099
Resolution of game:  1280*960 windowed or full.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1
Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce 8800GT 512MB
Driver revision: 280.19
Resolution of game:1680x1050 Full
Sound Card: Creative SB X-fi Xtreme Gamer
Issue: FMV's work flawlessly with Aali's 7.10 and newer.  With the plugin 'ffmpeg_movies.fgp' from 7.9 and older, the videos are choppy.

Your CPU is an important piece of information here. Older versions of the movie plugin didn't use any MMX/SSE extentions because it was prone to crashing. That *should* be fixed now but its possible that there's a bug with one of the different decoding paths.

lol

shocking how much of a prick he can be isnt it?

You don't have to look hard in this forum to find threads where DLPB is being an ass.

The founder of the site hates him even.

Fact remains, kiddo. Your movies don't work for everyone. So I'm responding to them on your precious thread and letting them know they have an option. Yah, it's true, I tend to troll you and only you. But it's because from day 1 I looked at this site and saw that flaming picture of yourself you use for an avatar and didn't like you. Have a nice day :?:
Actually, you won't troll or bait anyone or you'll be banned.  Just because someone is a "prick" to you, doesn't mean you get to do the same back.  I simply suggest that if someone upsets you, you report it and don't get further involved.

OS: Windows 7 x64 Home Premium SP1
CPU: Core2 Quad Q8200 2.33Ghz @ 2.8Ghz
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon X1900XT 256Mb
Driver version: Catalyst 7.12 (newer driver versions cause me to completely lose opengl support - stupid ATI!)
Resolution: 1280x960 windowed
Soundcard: Creative SB X-fi Xtreme Gamer
Aali Driver: 0.7.11b
Issue: any FMV except the originals crashes my game, did manage to get the restored opening one to run (used original sqlogo) but then got a crash from a short FMV during the mako reactor bombing.

OS: Windows XP 32bit
CPU: Intel P4 3.2Ghz Prescott
Graphics Card: ATI x800XT
Driver revision: Catalyst 10.2 (sigh)
Resolution of game: 1280x960 fullscreen
Sound Card: onboard SoundMAX
Issue: I have lots of issues! But seriously, I can get these videos to run in game but at a very slow speed, with sync issues on the sound obviously. Trojaks videos work but I would prefer to use these. Never demanded help. Actually, after these two posts, I gave up, though it left me frustrated:

Slowdown is typically caused by having a crappy video card, outdated drivers, or having texture caching enabled in Aali's driver on an ATI card.

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.

But those seem like pretty reasonable and straight-forward answers. I just kinda don't get it, it's one of those little details that just sticks in your craw. Anyway, my bad for trolling old Dan there. Carry on.

Keep em coming.  Might be a coincidence but so far no Nvidia users have a problem.

My first registry edit... that was the most terrifying thing I've ever done to my computer (note that my personal text is "I'm not cut out for this"). It worked though! Movies look much nicer now.
