And a good advice. Uncontrolled automatic updates can be as bad as no updates at all.
Only install updates if you know what they are doing. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

This must be a codec problem. As the readme says Desktop Movie always uses the system default directshow filters.
You should try a system restore or install ffdshow and set it to decode all supported formats.

I'm back again, discovered it will only play certain wma clips and no other formats. City_Nights and Planet_Earth play fine.???

First of all, let me thank you for this very excellent program. I seem to have run into a problem. When attempting to run a video, all I get now is a black screen no more animated wallpaper. Running it on XP Home SP3. The only changes that I have made is the weekly MS update and VLC update. At a lost.

I have inspected the situation. If you have UAC enabled you cannot autostart programs with required administrator privileges.
So forced admin mode should be disabled.
This problem is not Desktop Movie specific.

I have just uploaded a new version (2.3.1) that fixes the 1st issue I mentioned before.

Desktop Movie saves its settings at normal exit. Maybe the problem is that a system restart (while the program is running) kills the process and it cannot save its settings.
Other problem can be that a protection software detects the program's attempt to write the registry harmful and prevents it. Try to run msconfig and at the startup tab check that 'DesktopMovie' entry exists.
Desktop Movie does not require administrator mode anyway.

Forget that Falco, I got it working again. I don't recall it opening like that, but I just selected a video file in that Explorer window and it opened placing the icon in the system tray again.

Thanks for the quick reply Falco, but excuse me for being totally ignorant of this. Just what am I supposed to do after clicking on the "Render Media File? Clicking on this just opens up the same Explorer window asking for me to input a supported video file which is the same result I get when I double click on the application exe file????? Is there any way you can explain this to me in true layman's language

VLC,WMP,etc. don't use directshow filters by default. The error message indicates codec and/or parser error. To debug directshow download graphedit and try File ->Render Media File.

I have XPSP3 Home all updates installed, and for some unexplained reason, I now get this message when I attempt to run it
Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported. ($80040265)
I have the latest version of K-Lite Codec Pack installed and recent update 10.3. When attempting to run it, it opens up with a location window to find all video type files to play. I have no virus and even have the file added to the Avast exemption list. I'm totally at a lost as to what could have happened.
All other media players play just fine, VLC, KM, WMP, WMC Any ideas?
(87)FalcoRe:Re:Re:Sony CERS API2013.10.29 22:32:44
No problem.
The only requirement is to redistribute the complete original package in unchanged form, not just vremote.exe.

Thank you.
Sorry, I should have done a little more research. After my post below, I realized that I did not have 1.2.
I have already downloaded, and registered the server, and created my 1st quick C# app.
Works Great!!!! Thank you so much.
I would prefer to write my plugin as a complete module, so there would be no licensing issues.
Do you have any issues if I just implement your VRemote 1.2 as a requirement for my plugin? This would require me to include a copy of VRemote.exe v1.2 with my plugin.
Thank you.
P.S. If you do decide to go Open with the source, I would definitely LOVE to get a copy!!
Thanks again!

In the latest version 1.2 I have just implemented Automation/COM server so you can use vremote from external programs. Details in the readme.txt or you can see the messages 47, 48 where baiju xavior requested this feature and I replied him.
Examples can be found in the 'Automation_example' directory.

I am a member of a group that is creating an OPEN Source Home Automation Server application. Controlling Sony devices is a plugin that I have been working on for weeks now, and just can't seem to get the results I'm looking for.

You are the MAN!!! as I know after all my research, this was not an easy task to figure out. So I understand why you don't want to reveal your code.
But would you maybe consider creating an api, or even a shell option where a 3rd party application could execute a command??
I know I'm not the only one out there that would love to implement your application in to another useful tool.
(83)KherronRe:Sony Remote2013.10.29 18:42:47
@Joost van Crugten,
Try this as an easy "work-around" for your issue.
1) Install the VRemote on a computer there in your fathers house.
2) Connect to your fathers network via the VPN you have created.
3) Now use "Remote Desktop" to log in to the computer located at your fathers house.
4) Run the VRemote application, and control the TV!!!!
Now your running the application locally, and you will not have the above issues!

Actually this is not a timeout problem, but UPnP multicast traffic over VPN connection is problematic. Google for: 'UPnP over VPN' and you will see. I suggest you to try a VNC solution (e.g. UltraVNC). So instead of using the remote network you can start the program on the remote desktop of your grandfather.
Good luck.

First of all I will thank you for your great development of the Sony remote application, it's working nice
I have a question about that application. My grandfather is almost blind and can't see his television remote, so I've set up a VPN-server (a server so I can remotely login to the Local area network), and our meaning is to handle te television remote external from our house.
Here is actually a problem, because of, I think, a time-out in searching for te television when trying te find it when i'm at home.
I hope you can understand my problem and maybe can help me, because I think it has to do with something in de sourcecode of the application.
Grandfathers network > VPN Server > Our home > I logon to VPN > I'm on Grandfathers network.
I can ping the local ip adress of the TV, so it's reachable.
When I open the application at my grandfathers house (local), it finds the television, and than, when I leave the application open, I can go anywhere, so basically it's working, there's only a problem with connecting external, because than he tells me there are no devices.
I hope you can help me, it would be a great help for me and my grandfather. Sorry for my bad English, but I'm Dutch.
Yours sincerely,
Joost van Crugten
