If you use an ATI All-in-Wonder video card, you may need to fix how it handles multimedia formats such as MP3, so these files can be played by Showtime 2000.

Pangolin user Vernon Barry writes regarding his experience:

I found a problem when using LD2000 version 1.32 with an ATI All-in-Wonder video card. This problem will occur on all machines and Windows 95/98/ME. It is due to the multimedia drivers that are installed for the added features such as capture and DVD playback.

Problem

The problem is that the codecs get installed into the media player and prevent playback of MP3 files within mplayer.exe (integral to Windows). This can cause severe lockups and even crashes of Windows.

Solution

The solution is easy and does not require you to edit the registry. You must first go to the Control Panel under the Start menu and click on the Multimedia icon. Next, go to the Devices tab and a listing of all device categories will be seen. Select Media Control Devices and in the list the will be three icons named Cinemaster C MPEG Device (Media Control). Right-click with the mouse to select properties for each Cinemaster device and a new box will open. At the bottom of the box select Remove and then click Yes, then OK, then click OK again.
        Do this for the remaining two devices and then reboot. This does not affect DVD playback in any way nor does it cause any bugs on any machine that I have tried it on. This is the only way to allow MP3's to be played within Showtime with an ATI All-in-Wonder media center installed.
        I am also sending this to ATI because their drivers are screwing up Windows!!! I hope this helps because I spent about 12 hours trying to figure out what was crashing Mplayer.
