    mediaplayer xtra

    Level 7
      Can anyone share his or her experiences with the Mediaplayer Xtra by
      StarSoft?

      Bugs? Compatibility issues? etc.?

          Hi Craig,

          Why are you interested in this particular xtra - what does it do that
          the MPEG Advance xtra doesn't?

            I haven't used MediaPlayer Xtra but have heard good things about it. The
            reason to use it over MPEG Advanced:
            MediaPlayer Xtra (in addition to MPEG) plays DIVX, WMV and other video
            formats. And audio formats like MP2, MP3, MIDI and more. So, does support
            some media types that are not available in MPEG Advanced.

            However, MediaPlayer Xtra is Windows only. So, if you need an all purpose
            MPEG-1 player for Windows and Mac, MPEG Advanced is the better option.

            For Craig
            I've used other Xtras from Starsoft and have found them to be very
            reliable and support is great. If you have any questions, drop them an
            email and I'm sure you'll get a reply.

            regards

              Sean,

              I've always used the MPEGAdvance Xtra but it doesn't play WMV's. A client
              of mine wants to use WMV's (but when we went in to look for them we coudn't
              find any. We took the job anyway!)

              Thanks to you too Dean.

              Craig
