I have no problems splitting 50:50 but was wondering if you are basing the split on your own evalutaion of the original two comments (i.e. do you agree that "half the Q" was answered by the first comment and "half the Q" was answered by the second?).

cl3012,

When making my recommendations I am heavily influenced by the expert recommendations posted regarding how the question should be closed.  If an expert recommends a split and there are no objections and I don't see a reason not to split I will recommend a split.

As far as the percentage for each side of the split, the tool I use doesn't allow me to change that.  I just recommend a split between EXPERT and EXPERT and the MOD who closes will take care of the point awards.

To answer your question, it looks to me like you both offered different approaches that might have solved guestcg's problem so a split would be appropriate since either one might have been the answer.  As far as I can see MASQUERAID was the only one to pick up on, and answer, the second question asked and thus might should get a higher percentage of the points.

Comments?  :-)

I still have no objection to splitting the Q, as stated prev.

However as for "splitting hairs":

My take on the answer(s) to the "first question":

Me> You can uninstall the plugin, or update this plugin separately from the Morgan MM site to stop the crashes

MASQ> Yes, out with mmswitcher.dll (or if your worried move it from the system folder to somewhere temporary so you know you can mamage without it!)


My take on the answer(s) to the "second question":

Me> uninstall Nimo, re-install only with necessary codecs / better yet, try a different codec pack, or even install codecs one at a time from original sites - best case

MASQ>  I'm going to go for the opposite view and suggest you install a different bundle (& pull out those you don't need later!)


My take on the answer to an additional comment:

guestcg> Also, I read on this site about deleting mmswitch.dll but I'd like to know what it does before I do that.

Me> The Morgan Multimedia Stream Switcher plugin allows you to switch on-the-fly among multiple audio streams encoded into a video file.  Hardly any internet-downloaded files make use of this.

MASQ> [None]


I'm especially not trying to disparage MASQUERAID at all, but please correct me if I'm wrong.  I'm only bringing these nitpicks up because I feel I have not been recognized as contributing in other questions, but I did not ask for any moderation.

BTW, whether you agree with my take or not, it is essentially just a personal nitpick, so please delete all comments after your recommendation comment, for PAQ cleanliness, if you don't mind.

cl3012,

Are the questions ones that I made a recommendation in?  If so would you post here or email me a complete list to turn123(AT)experts-exchange.com (I promise I won't moderate but I do want to see more of the history then I see now) :-).

Would you have any objection to moving this discussion to http:Q_20934056.html?  I can move all comments there and delete from this question.

You are the top Multimedia Apps expert and I do recognize that and want to give you a big THANK YOU.  I want to  get this issue resolved to your satisfaction (I don't think the big issue for you is the point split) but don't want to keep flooding guestcg's inbox.

Oh, while I'm at it, one more "tainted" PAQ:

(Once again, I'm requesting for removal of tail-end comments only)
