Hi there pal, your post regarding ffdshow is quite interesting to me because you've mentioned that it can decode WMA, and for a long time i've never played a single .WMA file before so Iam very much interested with this now.

However, if I have Xvid and DivX now wouldn't it cause some conflict if I add ffdshow as my 3rd decoder in which i'll be using it solely for WMA file decoding?.. Or I do need to uninstall either DivX or Xvid to prevent future conflicts from occuring? On the otherhand, is there a way where I can disable all decoding properties which belongs to DivX and XviD and then make ffdshow as purely WMA decoder?.. Is this possible and or a bad idea? Thanks
