The download page only lists NT/2000/XP.

Seems to work fine on my system...

It's because I have found Win98 to play mpegs very "jerkily" with daphne and my efforts to advise users to not use Win98 with daphne still are not enough to stop people from repeatedly complaining about the jerky behavior in Win98. So now I just say that Win98 is not supported with daphne so that hopefully people realize they are using win98 at their own peril ...

Ahhh... I see. Dumb people. :roll: Gotcha.

I get that problem too. It comes from:

a) Not having enough RAM free.

b) Running in a resolution other than the native resolution of the video. (most people have DVD DL and SA in 720x480, and then run at 640x480. That, AFAIK, causes the problems.)

That means, to play fullscreen, you need to have a custom 720x480 resolution mode set up. Luckily, I own a copy of PowerStrip, which allows you to define custom resolutions. Ah, the joys of being a geek.

Thanks Matt.
