Cineplayer - how do you start it... or even find it?


Lake Nokomis

Question

When I start Creator 9, I am greeted by a message urging me not to waste dvd's. I am encouraged to view my iso files with Cineplayer. Where can I find Cineplayer? There is no mention of it on my home screen. There is only a brief reference to it in the manual. I can't find anything in help. When I double click on my iso file, it brings up a page that gives me no reference to cineplayer. When I put a dvd in my drive, nothing happens. Does cineplayer load up with the initial installation, or is this an add-on?

As a supplement to longbinh70, from the Start button:

 

Start>All Programs>Roxio Easy Media Creator 9>My Media>CinePlayer

 

Do you have this?

I've pretty well written this off, but, in answer to your kind response, the only thing under "My Media" is something called "Media Manager". CinePlayer is nowhere to be found.

Under the My Media tab, it is called "Watch DVDs" the subtitle references CinePlayer. I could not get it to see the iso file though.

 

You can also preview your iso file by using Disc Copier. On the left side navigate to the iso and click the preview icon.

There must be something wrong with my installation. The only thing behind the MY MEDIA tab is a reference to Media Manager.

Do you have a folder

C:\Program Files\Roxio\Media Experience?

 

Cineplayer is actually started from DMX.exe with a /DVD parameter

so if you have that folder and DMX.exe, you could try click start, click run, type

 

"C:\Program Files\Roxio\Media Experience\DMX.exe" /DVD

 

including the "", then press enter or click OK..

 

DMX and cineplayer are closely linked. In fact if you open DMX and click DVD, it changes to Cineplayer.

I do not have a Media Experience folder, and a search of my computer yielded nothing for DMX.exe. I did a reinstall and paused to look at the custom choices and nothing pointed to cineplayer.

Assuming that the layout of files on the CD is the same as when you extract the downloaded software executable, the DMX install is part of the first (suite) disc, sdmx_35 folder, dmx.msi.

 

If you can find that file on the suite CD, you could try right click on dmx.msi and click install. Can't be completely sure that will work, as it might need other things to install first.

Thanks for sticking with me. The DMX.exe won't install independent of the setup, and it hasn't installed as part of my repairs. I'm going to try a clean reinstallation after removing all of Creator 9. I'm also going to uninstall a piece of software "SuperDVDPlayer" in case that is getting in the way.

Just a thought - did you install the contents disc (the second CD)?

 

I just chjecked (download version) and Media Manager 9 is in that and not in the main Program one.

 

Put the Content CD in and run it - it's a separate install

Yes. I had the contents disc installed. I ran a repair installation just to be sure. No change.

There was no change. I'm still absent a Cineplayer.

Check you computer for an earlier version. Use search or just look at the Windows Start programs list. If you had an older one; the new one won't install in EMC 9 or will install but will not show on the Home page. There could be two different versions, perhaps one from V8, or something that came with the computer or something that you purchased.

 

Once again, if you want to preview an iso file in CinePlayer, you have to make a virtual disc. CinePlayer will not play the iso file directly. You may still want to just try previewing the iso file in Disc Copier.

If Sknis' suggestion does not resolve the issue, another thing you could do is see if the Roxio install created a text file, probably called install.log. I seem to remember that it does, but I have deleted the file so can't remember where it was placed. You could do a search in Windows explorer. To see the .log extension, and in case it put it in a hidden folder, in folder option view tab check show hidden files and folders, uncheck hide extensions for known file types, click apply, OK. In search, more advanced options, check the first three boxes. If you can find it, it may give a clue as to why dmx was not installed (for example one possibility is that permissions to write to certain registry keys are not set correctly).

What should I seek? A search on Cineplayer turns up nothing. DMX comes up with a file in a shared sonic directory, sonicmpgdmx.ax.

I've searched on install.log, install, *.log, install.txt. No log file found.

Did the cleanup and reinstalled and etc. and now DMX.exe is there. But I must say that the interface on the new one is much more difficult to use and one thing that I don't understand is that it wants to import the movies before playing them? Geeze, I went to review a movie that I made with VideoWave (so it already was on the computer) and it insisted that it wanted to reimport the 4Gs to a hdd.

What version is your EMC 9? Something isn't right. Open Creator Classic, click on Help, then click on About.

Back again. Procrastinating from finishing taxes.

I am having a similar problem, but part of it may be that Cineplayer was on my system from 8 (at least in the registry).

 

If you install Creator 9 over Creator 8, CinePlayer won't be installed... which means if you have CienePlayer in the registry already, the installer for 9 will not install the new CinePlayer since it thinks CinePlayer is already installed...

If it is any consolation, I went to Start>All Programs>Roxio Easy Media Creator 9>My Media>CinePlayer and CinePlayer is on mine. There must be something wrong with the CD they sent you. All of these things are not necessarily accurate 100% of the time. I just bought a brand new out of the box never used DVD+- R/RW/RAM Drive and it no workie. Now I have the great pleasure in sending it off to get it fixed or replaced. Just one more little detail.
