Renpy MPEG1 support specifics

#1 Post by luminarious » Mon May 26, 2008 5:37 am

Hi!

I converted a video file to mpeg1 with TMPGEnc, and it won't play with Renpy. No error, no traceback.. just exits the game.

http://senduit.com/7dc2de is the file. I'd love to know if I encoded it wrong somehow.. :(

Hm... It's working on Linux. I'll check it out on windows sometime in the near future.

Can anybody else try? I'd like confirmation that it's just my computer acting up (although I don't know why it should..)

Code: Select all

$ renpy.movie_cutscene("opening.mpg")
Wether I define the runtime or not makes no difference, apparently.

It works for me (windows XP). The problem might with your graphics card or drivers for it. It might be worth trying to install newer (or maybe even older) drivers for it.
On the other hand Ren'Py sometimes frozen when I clicked on the video and other times it skipped it correctly. I remember this video freeze happened to me with Fest Trip too. So I guess there might be some problems with video playback too.
Practice makes purrrfect.

According to Renpytom, this is my broken computer's fault for happening 80% of the time and not possible to replicate anywhere else. No, I'm not bitter at all.
