Looks handy. Not sure what the program is exactly checking the files on, but I'll sure give it a try if it's available !

If this program can indicate and flag problem files within the parameters of WDTV then the average joe wouldn't have to post everywhere what is wrong with this and that. Is that the intent and is that even possible?

that would be awesome.
but it would be even better if it ran on the WDTV

running on the wdtv would let the other modders integrate
it into other OSD functions.
like if the movie wont play then this app is called to output
what is wrong and perhaps even how to correct it.

Test release
-----------------------------------
* testing if is possible run mcWDTV on other WinXP without crashing
* WMV1 WMV2 detection added
* PacketBitstream detection added
* GMC 1-3 Warppoints detection added
* Multiple Video tracks problem added

Known bugs
* mcWDTV will crash on other content than MOVIE / dont try open JPEG or MP3

This tool is really simple and in alpha phase I am still developing background framework for future fw bugs detection
but MediaInfoLib isnt SwissKnife tool on media some features have to be checked with other way

Use this tool on your own risk its clean without viruses or hidden features or any other spyware features
I want add in far furure media info upload on wdtv.org server (this is not yet implemented some buggy functions are disabled)

please dont wait from this release too much its only for newbies

I'm not sure I could really say what's missing at this point. It's early in development and clearly needs polish, but I don't have any files that don't play on my WDTV. That makes checking for conditions hard. It did detect the dual video streams (wide-screen and full-frame) in one file I have, but that's the only "weird" file I can check.

Is it normal that the "check media" button is greyed out and can't be pressed ?

Is it normal that the pull down menu left of the "check media" button doesn't work and that the
program says that the "validation profile/fw shows 1.01.08 (official WDTV) ?

I've tried loading several files and the program shows mediaInfo after that button is pressed. All the files also give the message : LogedMsg : Single movie track detected WDTV That's ok

even with flv files that don't play on the WD TV HD...

Check media is disabled  becouse I am adding messages to small window now isnt nescessary
in future will be this process not started automatic - check media is disabled its buggy now appl is crashing on very often

log message 1 video stream is ok becouse is showing app is doing something
this version is usefull only if you have Windows Media files with  WMV1/WMV7 or WMV2/WM8
or DIVX or XVID with Packetbitstream or GMC feature then will say movie contain unsupported CODECs or you have to re-encode movie.

I need list of bugs for each FW then I can add checking function
next release should have AudioVBR sync problem.
if you know about media which isnt possible play tell me I will check it and add detection for this type.
