1DOOOOOPShareware Distribution
If your disk(s) contains VIDVUE24.ZIP; feel free to copy and distribute it, unmodified. You can
also copy and distribute your registered disk(s) set as long as you DELETE the TECHSUPP.TXT
file (only registered users get telephone support) and do not disclose your Personal S/N.

DEMO.TXT: Slideshow Example
In your VIDVUE app directory is a text file - DEMO.TXT. This file shows you how to write a
multimedia slideshow script. Simply change the "FILENAME=" keyword to equivalent files in
your own drive/directory then save the text file with a *.SHO extension (eg., DEMO.SHO).
See VIDVUE.HLP file for details on how to write user-scripted slideshows.

Diagnosing MCI Installation in Windows
If you get MCI driver errors when loading AVI, WAV, MID or FLI files, you may have a parameter
missing from your SYSTEM.INI or WIN.INI file. Ensure that you have installed the MCI drivers by
using the Media Player to verify successful installation.

If you downloaded NEWPLA.ZIP (from GO ASOFT or a BBS) or WAPLAY.EXE (from
GO GRAPHSUP at CIS) instead of AAWIN11.ZIP (or higher) to play FLI/FLC animation files, you
may get MCI errors with VIDVUE, since original setup program is not included.

Copy SYSTEM.INI and WIN.INI to *.BAK; this way you can undo changes. Enter items that
DO NOT EXIST in each of the INI files with a text editor. Close and restart Windows.

Entries in SYSTEM.INI file:

[mci]
WaveAudio=mciwave.drv
Sequencer=mciseq.drv
AVIVideo=mciavi.drv
Animation1=mciaap.drv

[drivers]
midimapper=midimap.drv
VIDC.MSVC=msvidc.drv
VIDC.RT21=indeo.drv

Entries in WIN.INI file:

[mci extensions]
wav=waveaudio
mid=sequencer
rmi=sequencer
avi=AVIVideo
fli=Animation1
flc=Animation1

VIDVUE.INI and MCI Initialization
Due to the way different systems react to MCI device initialialization; VIDVUE now includes
every possible combination for MCI devices initialization. If the the default routines still result
in an MCI error loading AVI, WAV, MID or FLI files, after

1. verifying that all relevant entries are in SYSTEM.INI or WIN.INI file
2. and Media Player plays the files,

then you can use a text editor to add/modify the following entries in the VIDVUE.INI file.

AUDINIT=n
AAAINIT=n
VIDINIT=n

where n=1,2 or 3

"AUDINIT=" modifies WAV and MID initialization.
"AAAINIT=" modifies FLI and FLC initialization.
"VIDINIT=" modifies AVI initialization.

If you have problems loading WAV and MID files, experiment by adding:
AUDINIT=1
or
AUDINIT=2
or
AUDINIT=3
restart Windows, run VIDVUE and play your WAV or MID file to see if it loads correctly.

If you have problems loading FLI and FLC files, experiment by adding:
AAAINIT=1
or
AAAINIT=2
or
AAAINIT=3
restart Windows, run VIDVUE and play your FLI or FLC file to see if it loads correctly.

If you have problems loading AVI files, experiment by adding:
VIDINIT=1
or
VIDINIT=2
or
VIDINIT=3
restart Windows, run VIDVUE and play your AVI file to see if it loads correctly.

Apple QuickTime for Windows (QTW) Runtime
To run *.MOV (Apple QTW MOVie) files, installed MCI drivers for Windows are required.
To check if the drivers are installed, use the Media Player accessory to play *.MOV files;
if you can play *.MOV files via Media Player then VIDVUE can too.

If you purchased and are currently using any of the following products:

Adobe Premiere 1.0 (or later) for Windows
Macromedia Action 2.5 (or later) for Windows
Macromedia Authorware Pro 2.0 (or later) for Windows

then you probably have installed MCI drivers for MOV playback; verify proper
MCI installation via Media Player.

If you don't have the Quicktime for Windows drivers, then CompuServe subscribers can:

1. GO MACDEV.
2. Download LICENS.TXT from Library 8.
3. Read and abide to terms and conditions in LICENS.TXT.
4. If you agree to LICENS.TXT, then download QTDSK1.ZIP and QTDSK2.ZIP.

Note:QTDSK1.ZIP and QTDSK2.ZIP are NOT distributable files.
Only YOU can download and use them (see LICENS.TXT).
READ THE README.WRI FILE IN QTDSK1.ZIP.

5. Extract QTDSK1.ZIP to a blank, formatted 1.44 MB disk.

Example:

If you dowloaded the *.ZIP files to d:\CSERVE\DOWNLOAD then

a - Insert your blank, formatted 1.44 disk in Drive A:
b - in DOS, type "A:" to goto Drive A:
c - Type "PKUNZIP -d d:\cserve\download\QTDSK1.ZIP"
to extract files to directories.

6. Extract QTDSK2.ZIP to another blank, formatted 1.44 MB disk.
7. Insert DISK1, run Windows and run SETUP.

Note:If for some strange reason SETUP cannot find DISK2 when it requests it,
rename the DISK2 directory on DISK2 to "DISK1" then reinstall. You may
have to use a utility like Norton or PCtools to do this.

If you are not yet a CompuServe subscriber, but have a CDROM and several CDROM titles,
you may already have the QTW runtime files BUT may not be setup for MCI playback.

1. Copy all QTW runtime files to your \windows\system directory.
The QTW files are usually placed in a separate directory; you must have:

MCIQTW.DRV, MCIQTENU.DLL, QTIMCMGR.DLL, QTIM.DLL
QTOLE.DLL, QTHNDLR.DLL, QTVHDW.DLL, QTNOTIFY.EXE
PLAYENU.DLL, VIEWENU.DLL, and several *.QTC files

Note:Since YOU purchased the book w/ a CDROM or CDROM title, only YOU are
licensed to use the QTW runtime files on ONE/YOUR single computer.
YOU CANNOT DISTRIBUTE THE QTW RUNTIME FILES OR COPY THEM TO
ADDITIONAL MACHINES/COMPUTERS OR SHARE THEM VIA NETWORKS
OR OTHER SHARED DEVICES.

2. Create a QTW.INI file and place it in your \windows directory and
add the following sections and entries.

[Options]
VideoOptimize=DIB

[Video]
Optimize=driver

[QuickTime for Windows]
Implementation=Full

3. Modify your SYSTEM.INI file; add under the [mci] section

QTWvideo=MCIQTW.DRV

4. Modify your WIN.INI file; add under the [mci extensions] section

MOV=QTWvideo

HiColor DDB (Device Dependent Bitmap) Frame Grabs
Since 32K or 64K color modes are the preferred modes for viewing video files, Video for
Windows 1.1 (or higher) and Apple Quicktime 1.1.1 (or higher) displays video as DDBs for
speed on 32K/64K color displays. DDBs are DEVICE DEPENDENT; thus, you have to tell
VIDVUE how to use them. A special entry in the VIDVUE.INI file tells VIDVUE how to
access DDBs. This is ONLY required if you want to grab video frames from AVI
or MOV video files on 32K/64K color displays. Run VIDVUE and select
"Help-System/Video Info". If "Bits/Pix=16" or "Bits/Pix=15" then this affects you.
Otherwise, skip this setup.

Using a text editor (eg., NOTEPAD), add the following entry to the VIDVUE.INI file:

HiColorGrab=RGB

where RGB=0(will save to a 24-bit DIB; this is the default)
RGB=555 (will save to standard 32K HiColor DDB format)
RGB=565 (will save to an XGA-type DDB format)
RGB=655 (will save to a non-standard XGA-type DDB format
typically found with ATI cards)
RGB=664 (will save to a non-standard DDB format typically found with ATI cards)

If you have an ATI card, run the FlexDesk utility then click the Advanced button,
the "16 BPP RGB Mode" frame will tell you how you are currently setup.

If you have one of the newer Windows accelerator cards, try

HiColorGrab=565

most will typically default to this mode.

If "Help-System/Video Info" shows "Bits/Pix=15" then try.

HiColorGrab=555


If you don't know what RGB mode you are in, experiment with:

HiColorGrab=555
or
HiColorGrab=565
or
HiColorGrab=0

then restart VIDVUE and try to Grab a video frame; see VIDVUE.HLP if you don't know
how to grab video frames.
NS.TXT.
4. If you agree to LICENS.TXT, then download QTDSK1.ZIP and QTDSK2.ZIP.

VIDVUE 2.4 Update

o Added Clipboard DIB Support.

- Copy DIB to Clipboard
- Paste DIB from Clipboard
- Empty Clipboard

o Added Quicktime (*.MOV) movie support.

- Virtually, all AVI (Video for Window) functionality implemented.
- Complete Slideshow support/integration.
- Quicktime (*.MOV) movie frame grab function (similar to AVI grabs)
for importing and exporting graphic frames to different file formats.

o Added HiColor DDB (device-dependent bitmap) support for grabbing
32K-color and 64K-color AVI (with VFW 1.0 or VFW 1.1 runtime) and MOV
(Apple Quicktime) movie frames; includes DDB support for 5/5/5, 5/6/5,
6/5/5 and 6/6/4 display modes.

o Control Window is now "Always On Top" when showing AVI, MOV (Quicktime)
or FLI/FLC animation to account for increasingly large video frame
sizes (eg., 640x480).

o Added "RIFF walker" for FAST AVI file info.

o Added "RIFF walker" for FAST WAV file info.

o Added File Date field to all File Info functions.

o BUGFIX: Resizing of images with systems low on memory triggered
a DLL missing error; corrected.

o BUGFIX: Monitor Contrast and Brightness adjustments updated incorrectly
in Viewing Window AFTER decoding a GIF to Full Screen; corrected.

o BUGFIX: VIDVUE's Setup trigerred an error during install with
Windows for Workgroups; corrected.

o BUGFIX: With VFW 1.1 runtime, playing AVI files WITHOUT an audio track
trigerred an MCI error; corrected.

o BUGFIX: With VFW 1.1 runtime, playing AVI slideshows trigerred a GPF
when palette updated on some systems in 256 color modes; corrected.

o BUGFIX: Ending slideshow by clicking on screen sometimes trigerred an
MCI error depending on speed of CPU and transfer rate of data; corrected.

o BUGFIX: Setup still caused an error on European systems using various
characters for date delimiters (eg., 5.28.94); corrected - totally
removed date dependencies in setup.


VIDVUE 2.3 Update

o Added WMF support.
- WMF header info
- Variable scaling and resizing
- Auto size support
- Full screen support
- Slideshow support

o Added User-Definable background color for all images and immediate
slideshows via Color Dialog.

o Added option for FAST, seamless GIF transitions (decodes in background
while current slide is showing) in immediate slideshows.

o Recompiled subclassing routines for 256-color displays; faster!

o Added extended Printer Setup dialogs.

o Added 3D support for Message boxes and dialogs.

o Accelerated Mark Directory function for slideshow.

o Added system & video info window (memory, resources, video ...)

o Added optional File Manager association with VIDVUE in Setup for
GIF, JPG, PCX, TGA, TIF and BMP files.

o Added MCI "bullet proofing" routines for WAV, MID, FLI/FLC and AVI devices.

o BUGFIX: Setup expected THREED.VBX's datestamp to be in U.S. format (ie.,
M/D/YY) causing a "Type mismatch ..." error on systems with International
date formats (eg., YY/M/D); corrected.

o BUGFIX: Wrong filename was displayed in viewing window title when
viewed via File Manager association; corrected.
