Getting MediaShout to play .mov files

I have seen a couple posts that say MediaShout won't play .mov files. This is simply not true. In order to do it, you need to install a quicktime alternative, which still plays all quicktime files but allows them to be played in MediaShout.

The mediashout website even says it will play mov files..

Here is one such free 3rd party codec. (One side note, it will ask you to uninstall Qtime)

Heh, for about a week, now, all we've been able to play in MediaShout is .mov files. I tried fixing the problem using techniques on MediaShout's forums...now no video at all. Go figure!

I've tried several builds. I would update to the latest build, find other problems,then revert back. As of now, I think build 505. I tried installing 510 yesterday, but I uninstalled it because of all the newer problems I was having. We may need to buy a new video card. That's according to the people on the mediashout forums. I just hate to spend the money when it may not fix the problem. I was having problems before with Media Shout crashing constantly and randomly. I did the fix, and that's when all my movie files stopped playing (except for .mov), so I tried updating to 510, installing Media Player patches, and installing new codecs (K-Lite was what some were recommending). Each time, nothing seemed to fix the problem. But after installing the K-Lite codec, no videos work. I tried uninstalling K-Lite, but still had the same problem. I might try uninstalling and reinstalling it (a process I just went through to fix the crashing problem). I guess I could revert back to 3.0 instead of 3.1. I haven't tried that, yet, but it seems our video card won't work with 3.1 (needs to be DirectX 9 compatible).

You can get a pretty decent video card that is direct x 9 compatible for around $100

Obidowsn, I think MediaShout's AV capabilities are pretty unstable at this point. I have access to just about anything I need from a PC standpoint and we've still not seen MediaShout run correctly. We like their interface and features far more than other products, but given how long many of their problems have been going on, the way they're just taking pot-shots at fixes, and that they can't do basic stuff that 25 other media players can do leads us to conclude that they have some pretty serious problems in their development team that need to get corrected before we can rely on their software. If the card is just for MS I don't think I'd count on the card fixing much.

Yes 3.1 does require true DirectX 9, whereas previous versions could deal with cards that "fake it".

Oh, great . Here I was, completely happy with mediashout, never had any problems, and now watch- it'll probably crash on me this week or something !!
Actually we did have a problem once. We were trying to use a powerpoint slide presentation for one of the cues and it just wouldn't work properly. We ended up inserting all of the slides as individual cues in the script and setting them up to run in a loop. We haven't had any problems running video files though.

I'm not sure if this is the same problem or not (or just related) but here's what's happening with my Media Shout (I'm new at it, just learning).
It works fine displaying PowerPoint cues. But, when I insert a dvd clip or other video the projection screen is just BLACK. Audio works. No video. Just a black screen like a black hole. What's up with this?

Any help will be greatlyl apprciated.

Yes I have loaded the 546. Also did loaded the new k-lite codec thingy. Doesn't work. It is not just the dvd, when I try to drag even the main ms window into the 2nd display, it doesn't show. It is like there a black screen covering it up.

this is not good.

QuickTime

Does this mean that even though I have quick time (from Apple) installed, that I still need some third party alternative to run these videos in MediaShout?

Thanks!
