How to make CinePlayer DVD pack work?

Recommended Posts

Help, please.

 

I just installed Cineplayer DVD Decoder Pack 2.3.1, downloaded from your online store. Now I want to watch a movie, but I don't see a shortcut on my desktop or any other way to launch the program.

 

How do I get the DVD player started?

 

Also: The installation program said the software would be in the folder "c:Program Files/Sonic/Cineplayer DVD Pack". I looked for an .exe file or icon in the folder, but all I see in the Cineplayer DVD Pack folder are two files: leadreg.exe (which got me to Roxio's online registration) and unicows.dll, which isn't executable.

 

Where is the executable file from which I can make a shortcut?

It's a plugin for Windows Media Player.

 

Thanks, Dave.

 

I'm still confused, though. I just loaded Windows Media Player but found no mention of a DVD player on the toolbar up top (near Library, etc.). Nor, in the Windows Media Player folder, do I see a Plug-ins subfolder .

 

How do I connect the CinePlayer pack with Windows Media Player so I can launch CinePlayer from WMP?

Do you actually have Cineplayer on your computer? If you do, why would you want to launch it from WMP?

Howard,

 

As Big Dave said in post #2, the Decoder Pack is a plug-in. Once it's properly installed, Windows Media Player should use it and play your DVDs for you.

 

Thanks to all.

 

To install the plug-in pack, I downloaded the file "SonicCinePlayerDVDDecoderPack2.31_SDD.exe".

 

Then I clicked on it. It created the folder "c:\Program Files\Sonic" and the subfolder "CinePlayer DVD Pack," inside of which are two files: "LeaderReg.exe" and "UNICOWS.DLL".

 

Does that constitute proper installation? If not, what else should I do? If so, how do I get WMP to recognize that the plug-in is there?

You can enable or disable some plug-ins, which allows you to turn an effect on or off. Being able to turn effects on or off is also useful when troubleshooting a non-Microsoft plug-in that isn't working as expected. Some plug-ins, such as visualizations and renderer plug-ins, are automatically enabled when added and will remain enabled as long as they are installed on your computer.

 

1. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Player.

 

If the Player is currently open and you're in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library button in the upper-right corner of the Player.

 

2. In the Player Library, click Organize, click Options, and then click the Plug-ins tab.

 

3. In the Category list, click a category.

 

4. In the list of plug-ins, do one of the following:

 

o To disable a plug-in, clear the check box next to the plug-in.

 

If a check box isn't displayed, the plug-in can't be disabled.

 

o To enable a plug-in, select the check box next to a plug-in.
