Active Movie Not working with CDI video's
Posted on 1998-07-01
Here's an interesting problem. I used to be able to play
CDI Video Cd's in my system, but for some reason a while back, they stopped working. I thought Windows 98 might correct the problem, but alas, it didn't I am getting the following error messages when trying to play the .dat files on the video cd. (these files are actually mpeg files).
mmsystem296, device specified for this file cannot be found, or file is stored in an incomatible format.
mmsystem001, external error.
Now I can play .mpg files fine. It's just these darn .dat files give this error. I have tried several suggestions, and even remove active movie from the registry and re-installed it (ie4).
I don't know quite what is wrong. I have checked the win.ini and system.ini files for the proper entries, and they do exist.
