Completely Disabling Video Support

Hi Guys,

I've had a good look through old posts and haven't managed to find an answer to this so I hope you can help me please.

I'm installing a PC in my car without any screen attached and want to be able to attach an external USB hard drive and have winamp create a playlist on load based on the content of the drive. This drive will not soley have music on and may have other data including video.

I have scripted winamp to scan the attached drive by running WINAMP /NEW C:\ on startup. This of course will add video to the playlist which is no use without a screen.

I have unchecked the video option when installing winamp, I have also removed most of the input plugins. I have removed all video file associations but it still insists on adding video to the playlist. It will on some fiies play the audio not sure if it pays the video on them.

Any help you can offer would be greatfully received.

G

If you still have the Windows Media plugin (in_wm.dll) then you will need to disable the video support in that. Open up the config for the plugin and then remove the WMV and possibly the ASF file types from its list.

If you still have problems with it playing video then post a list of plugins, see the FAQ sticky for details.

Thanks J_Darnley. I have already tried that yet still it persists! It appears that after killing winamp and reloading, the WMV and ASF options reappear and continue to load up the video files. any ideas?



I looked at the FAQ and installed the bizarrely named "One for Nunz" to try and get a list of plugins but couldn't get that to work properly (not having much luck) instead I have taken a dir list of my plugins directory at command prompt

Nice, the dir output is just fine, and I forgot something else. The MPEG-4 Audio Decoder (in_mp4) plug-in will try to load video that are in the MPEG-4 container. It will try to play them as audio files as it has no video decoders (nor will it pass video to DirectShow). If you don't have any audio files that have a .mp4 extension you can remove this from the extension list in the plugin's config and it will still play the incoreect .m4a extension.

If you still have problems can you post more info about the videos that Winamp is trying to load.

Thanks for the advice.

I don't think I have any files in .mp4 or m4a format so I have removed the plugin completely.
I also think I've got to the root the windows media plugin problem with it adding WMV ASF support on a restart. I had been using the winamp /kill option mapped to my game pad and restarting with winamp /new c:\. This doesn't seem to shut winamp down correctly. I have closed it using the menu and reopened and now the plugin has remembered the change.

Thanks for your help!

No problem, and just so that everyone is clear, Winamp only saves its prefs/config/playlist on a clean exit.
