That sounds at least like a hint - thanks for your hard work!

Ok, it seems hard to track this one, on my other computer i installed many (older and newer) VLC player versions, also ALL with the Active X component, but it seems....that even when you install or register the DLL the "service" does not get loaded in Windows, so we have to find out what's causing it...and how to fix it, seems internet is offering litle help...

I've attatched a file wich contains a example script "VLC UDF Example.au3" and you can load the MP4 file to check if VLC ActiveX will run on you computer!

To be continued!

Just as a report: I have bought a new computer 4 weeks ago, installed ECC today and set it up (also VLC is on the machine) and I still keep getting this error. The video playback isn't working.

I'm thinking of using the 'media player classic ' as a 2nd option, but research is needed if it can support commandline parameters that we need...

Media player classic doesn't seems to work like i would..., so i am trying another video player: Mplayer

Website: http://mplayerwin.sourceforge.net/downloads.html
Autoit handling example: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic ... layer-gui/

I am making progress with it, so hang on for a "test" package soon!

Yes, i all got it working now!, Tormentor667 tested the beta out, als i have verified that mplayer also works on Windows XP, so ECC still fully works on XP machines.
