In addition nandub is restricted to only encode with divx3.11, or M$ MP4v2.

In short nandub is good for only a few things. Like encoding with divx3.11/MP4v2, muxing vbr/ac3 audio into an existing video, or cutting an avi that has vbr or ac3 audio.

i havent found much use of virtualdub except playing files that are bad. *virtualdub should have a fullscreen option.* can you tell me if there are any articles about how to use vdub or nandub.

Virtualdub was never intended to be used as a player.

This document from doom9 explains a number of different procedures that can be use in virtualdub, to accomplish various tasks.

I think that somebody should make a nice player that is lightweight, and specializes in DVD, divx, xvid, vcd... you get the point. that would be really handy.

The Windows Media Player Classic 6.4 would fall quite nicely into that category.

That said, other players, such as BSPlayer and PowerDivX, would have no problems playing media files either (as long as the right codecs are installed).

These two feature sets, tend to work against each other.

A light player that is specialiced for all sorts of formats yeah right, I would like a fast and large car that is really really fuel efficient.

Anyways the reason you might sometimes be able to view a file with virtualdub, and not with other players, is that virtualdub uses a VFW decoder while all players (execpt the DivX player) uses DirectShow.
This is usually indicates that your system is misconfigured.

Thumbs up Compact, do-it-all player

Apologies: This should've been a reply to NanDub vs VDub thread, but I hit the wrong button

Well I think that microDVD 1.2 is the dux nutz in this category, small [2.5MB, minus skinz etc] and can play anything WMP can play. You can even run it directly from a CD containing a DivX, which is great for distro.

From the documentation:
Quote:
  • The main movie may be any audio/video file type playable by the Windows Media Player.
  • "Emulate" original DVD Navigation Menu.
  • Play Special Features: Often DVDs offer additional videos containing "making-of" or similar background information.
  • Display Subtitles [as text overlay, not BMP]
  • Play Multi Language.
  • High Comfort: To give you all the comfort you want when watching MDVDs, the player's user interface has a similar structure than that of the popular software DVD player tool PowerDVD. Most of PDVD's features are available, plus some more.
Tickle your fancy

Yeah I have had great luck with Windows Media 9 also. I have heard different from others though. So far so good. If you got that download the Nimo Codec pack and everything works for me....
