Codec for Rumic Theatre

I have episode of Rumic theatre from Live Evil, it was working fine when I downloaded it. But recently I upgraded my ffdshow alpha 2003-05-23 codec to ffdshow-20040520-p3. Strangely I couldn't watch Rumic theatre anymore, everytime I open the file, I got an error message and the media player just shut down. If I switch back to the old ffdshow it works fine again.

I tought this is kinda strange. I'm not really understand how codec works. If anyone can give me better explanation or make a sugestion what I should do, should I stick with the old version? or other codec entirely?

I'd just stick with the old codec since it can play back nearly every file I've encountered so far. Normally newer versions of codecs are fixing bugs and making the decoding faster and so on, but it seems that they included one with the newest update. Not 100% sure though because your problem could have been caused by something else - but I deem that unlikely.

Unfortunately there are some problems with the 2004-05-20 build of ffdshow. Most particularly that build causes problems if you aren't using a Pentium3. I have removed it from the Media Codec Guide until I can ask Animaniac why he prefered it for use. I recommend ffdshow-20040514 as the latest best build.

I linked the P3-optimized buiild because I thought no one would be running anything older than a Pentium 3 in this day and age. I'm not entierly sure if anything older would be very successful at playing back anime anyway. I've updated the guide with a non-optimized build from the same date and below it I have linked the optimized build as an alternate. Just to note the P3-optimzied build is significantly faster on today's computers. Sorry for the trouble.

You should upgrade your computer.

I'm actually running on a P4 with 2.53 GHz cpu. ^^;; The version NSW recomended seems working great, haven't encounter any problem yet.
