How to select which codec is used

Postby FiL » Sat Oct 07, 2006 3:57 pm

Hello everybody

Say if I have the DivX Decoder and Perian installed how can tell which one is going to be used ?
More generaly how can I configure which codec is going to be used when several matches ?

Cheers

At the moment there is no way to do so, one or the other will load first and then that is that.

So far for DivX I've had everyone I talked to say for playback it's faster/betterererer than the official divx one. Have you tried with one or the other and seen how they compared?

Well no I'll try to see wich one is faster.

So for now I'll just move around the codec to enable/disable them.

I'll file an enhancement ticket for this :)
