Another Issue With Media In Nov CTP – Media ends early


If you are using media in clock mode (again, see the draft article on the Nov CTP for more on the modes for media), you may find that the media cuts off early and, if you are listening for the MediaEnded event, you never get it.  This is an known issue with the Nov CTP; at this point in time, I’d suggest using media in independent mode, as there are still issues synching between the media clock and the animation clock.

    Hi,

    I took your SandBox3D app and fixed the code to run in the NovCTP but when I try to run it I am getting a COM error at instanciation of the MediaPlayer (I followed your example for using clock mode). The error is: The specified procedure could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007F)

    Any ideas what maybe wrong.

    Thanks,

    blair

    Sorry I didn’t see this comment — my guess is that if it worked in an earlier build but broke in this build, you’ve hit a known bug where some media files didn’t get cleaned up when you uninstalled. Your best bet is to uninstall, run the script here http://blogs.msdn.com/tims/archive/2005/09/20/471815.aspx and reinstall the Nov CTP.
