Post by ckv »

If I disable option "View / File list / Play movie" and then try to view video file XnView gives error. (RC2 only)

Code: Select all

How do you open the movie?
But if you disabled the viewing of video, so xnview can't view it...

Strange I have "View / File list / Play movie" disabled all the time and I can watch movies just fine. I use the new "Items display" system :)

Update:
I just saw this error message for myself and I'm really pissed!

Pierre, either get rid of "View / File list / Play movie" or get rid of "Browser / Items Displayed / Video Files" you can't have both.

And why? The one says "View" and the other "Browser".

Well... the word 'view' here refers to Menu>View>View as: Thumbnails, etc... (what is listed in those modes)
...not as 'Viewer'/'View'.

They are really for different settings.

- Browse (with XnView) to folder what contains video files

I get the feeling this will be "Postphoned" which means everyone should switch over to using external media players with XnView until this is resolved.
