|Ok, heres what I did:|
Got and HDD and installed 98SE on it and the various WP drivers, some MP3s, and Scary Movie and The Matrix, and the DivX codec of course.
I booted the WP andcoulf not get sound to work, I didnt load the Windows CAB files. I said the heck with it and tried to see if movies would play. The Matrix played fine, however, scary movie in DivX would not play, with the codec installed. I though it might just be corrupted. But Scary Movie was also in a higher quality recording.
Then i put the Win98 cabs on the HD and got the sound working. But now, alas, The Matrix will not play. It loads and I can scroll to various frames with the slider, but it will not playback. Ideas anyone? The WP shoudl be powerful enough to play DivX/AVI movies, my 200Mhz comp with 16Mb RAM can. Is it the fact that Cyrix chips Sux00r?
