If you decide to install ffdshow, you must enable the video and audio formats you want to decode and leave others (like Mp3) unchecked, and also disable any post-processing. ffdshow can be re-configured later using Start menu shortcuts or the property sheet of this filter.

The background application might be a harmless tray icon, but may also be doing some redundant demuxing, dunno: Check CPU usage in a task manager.

FFDShow has no drawbacks compared to latest DivX software. Even distributive size (dxn = 15 MB) and mem usage is better.
Thanks for this advice; but at the moment everything works fine so I'll let the config as is, then if I've get problems with some movie or larger file I'll try this.

:arrow: I've downloaded a TS file, it plays ok with VLC, but when I select the subs it doesn't show them at the screen, do you know what could be posible causing this?
