Bug - Theater View link to Amazon video/WDM driver
« on: November 01, 2014, 05:03:22 pm »

Not sure if this is a bug, or just unwanted behavior.  I have created a link in theater view that takes me to the Amazon Prime video website using the internal browser.  As soon as I select something to play, the IPC window (not sure what that even is) takes over the display so we can't watch the video.  I am using the WDM driver as my default system Driver with my HDMI (WASAPI) driver as the output in MC20.

The issue is that MC can only play one thing at a time in a given zone; so you start the video in display view, but then the IPC engages and disrupts the video.  The solution is to make a separate zone for the IPC playback and setup a zoneswitch rule that routes the WDM drivers output to that zone (the rule I use is "[name]="IPC"").

Then, when you start the video in theater view, the IPC will engage, but in another zone that shouldn't disrupt video playback.

I can provide more detailed instructions if that would help.  Here's a link to a short guide I wrote to setting this up: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=93043.0
