This extension installs the LAV Filter package, which contains a splitter, audio and video decoder for the most common formats that are used around the web.
Note for TV Users: The TsReader of MP 1.2.3 has problems in combination with the latest LAV version. Use an updated version:
DirectShow plugin for QuickTime files (.MOV, .AMR, .MP4, etc.) playback via the native QuickTime runtime. The filter requires QuickTime Player (7.0 or higher) to be available on the computer.
RARFileSource is a DirectShow filter to play rar files without to unpack the stored video first.
The original version is from OctaneSnail and can be found here.
The MediaPortal version fixed a bug, where huge files under a 64 bit OS can't be open and end up with an I/O error.
The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users. In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.
The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us. Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
