MIS Info Video - Support




is made via email only


We also put an example by using Info2MIS (to create .MIS) and MIS Info Video.

1. Download and uncompress Recorded Movies.zip, 174KB (2006-04-12), (with subfolders: Action, Bio, Comedy ...)

2. Download and install MIS Info Video

3. Go to Folder and point to the folder where you uncompressed the Recorded Movies.zip

4. Click Refresh

You won't be able to play the movie (of course), but it will give you a better sense of the potential of this application.


Do I need a .MIS to play a file?

No but it's better if you have one.  For example, a podcaster could add URLs, chapters .... A movie could have a picture plus the plot, credit ...You may know what the movie was about but maybe not all the members of your family or friends does. Also by adding a rating-age to the media in the .MIS, it can help filter out content not suitable for young children.

You could ask the provider of the media files to make one. Plus, Info2MIS(Free) is there for that.

I can't see my media file?

You need to have the good video "codec" for the file. The most commons extension are:

.WMV (Windows Media Video)
.AVI (DivX or XviD)
.MPG (MPG1 or MPG2/VOB) - If you a have DVD player or capture card, most will have the codec
.MOV (QuickTime)

I can't hear my media file?

You need to have the good audio "codec" for the file. The most commons extension are:

AC3 - It's not a extension but often .AVI will use this to get 5.1 sound versus stereo(MP3)

The internal player can't play some files, what can I do?

You just need to install and/or configure an external player. If a file extension is not supported by MIS Info Video, it will instead launch the default application associated to it.

I want to use my own player instead but the .MIS (i.e. chapters, subtexts) is not supported?

You will need to ask them to support it. All the information is on our site.
