Are you kiddin aren't you?
I've bought the decoder becuase it states EXPLICITYAnd For Other Directshow Based Products
, that includes ZoomPlayer, MPC, ProgDVB, MyTheater..... a directshow application i just compile now.... and not for sure to use it only for the lame WMP.
I've done an image just in case they decide to trick at the last minute.
Now, or the elecard tech fixes this ridiculous and FRAUDLY issue, or i want my money back and i can garantee that the picture above and this story will travel.
No I am not kidding I contacted technical support about this issue and this is the excerpt from the latest e-mail I received from them. You can interpret this any way you wish but yes I have to agree with you their advertising if this is the case is indeed dishonest and misleading.
"Please answer one more my question. Do you have logo when you play mpeg files via WMP or you use our decoder in other applications?
I should mention, that our Elecard MPEG-2 Decoder&Streaming Plug-in for WMP 3.5 are activating only for WMP, if you want to activate it for other applications, please, contact our sale department."
Indeed I would love somebody from Elecard to get involved in this thread and explain this, I do feel like I've been had.
I also want to mention that if they indeed are licensing the MPE2 decoder separately for each player (that’s how it came across from the technical support e-mail I received) that is the dumbest idea if I’ve ever heard one. There are many free playback directshow filters that do way more for nothing and if I would have known that I wouldn’t buy the product from Elecard in the first place.
