    Looking for some help trying to configuure Meedio With Theatretek, cant get Meedio to start playing ripped DVD'S from my hard drive!! no problems playing them from the disc, when i click on cover art in Meedio, Theatretek opens and nothing happens, is there an easy way to configure this programme? so far it has been a nightmare, i am using the Playme plugin and changed the dvd player on the drop down list to Theatretek. i have /RES 1280 720 /NOSPLASH "{file}" paste in the parameter box, dont no if i have something unchecked that should be checked :confused: if anyone has experience with this or an easier programme to use please let me no. :lease:

    Hi,
    I know what your going through!!
    I prefer to use zoomplayer with Meedio
    as I tried Theatertek and I couldn't get it to work
    either. Have you put in the location of the file your
    trying to play? Where have you imported the
    cover scan/ description etc from?
    I'll try to help if I can.

    Have you used dvd shrink to do the ripping?

    If so this is what I do :

    1. When ripping finishes, a folder is created at the location you tell
    it to go to i.e C:\dvdrips\spiderman. Go to that folder and open it.
    You should now see 2 folders - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. Open the
    VIDEO_TS file. Right click and copy the location:

    C:\dvdrips\spiderman\video_ts

    2. Open Meedio config. Click on movies in the left hand column.
    Click on the tab marked media library. This is where any imported
    film info is kept.

    3. Locate Spiderman ( in this case) and paste the loaction copied earlier.
    Click apply and the film should now play in Meedio!!
