Elecard MPEG-2 PlugIn for WMP is the package of Elecard components for media data receiving from network (UDP, RTP over UDP, TCP, RTP over TCP) using the RTSP protocol or from files, and decoding MPEG-2 video and MPEG-1/2 audio streams. The package can be used with all generations of WMP.
MPEG-2 Video Decoder a.k.a. DVD decoder, streaming components, and demultiplexer comprised in the pack are Microsoft® DirectShow® compatible. Elecard MPEG-2 Decoder can process DVD Subpicture, Closed Captions (DVD, ATSC. DVS157, C-Cube, SCTE).
DXVA support in Elecard Video Decoder significantly decreases CPU usage and provides substantial performance gains.Multi CPU support provides high performance for real time transcoding tasks executed on high-end PCs.
Elecard MPEG-2 Video Decoder is Windows XP Media Center Edition compatible. Install the pack to enable dvd video playback in multimedia players built on DirectShow (e.g., Windows® Media Player).
