    "Not support Ext" means the file you are trying to run is not named .dpg...double double check throught your computer that it is .dpg

    Alternativly you could have found a bug in Moonshell v1.6, which is a rather old version, can you look at upgrading to Moonshell v1.71 or Moonshell v2?

    I think there were like 4 different .dpg formats for moonshell (as moonshell got better, so did the containers?) I know Moonshell 2 can't play the older .dpg versions, but it can play those encoded from moonshell 1.71. That might have been why the .dpg files weren't supported.

    Moonshell 2 can play DPG1, 2, and 4. DPG3 fails to play.

    Well, you could always go with: If it doesn't load, its dpg3. If it plays but doesn't show a preview when highlighted, its either dpg1 or dpg2. If it plays, seeks nicely, and shows a preview, its dpg4. (But you would have to be using Moonshell 2 lol)

    alternativly download the .dpg and run Moonshell 2.05's dpginfo.exe (you will find it in: \misctools\dpgtools\misctools\). Select the .dpg you want to test. It will give you a result like this:

    Which unfortunately blows this statement out of the water...the movie I tested above plays fine on Moonshell v2.05. I converted it months ago when i used v1.7.x

    Hmmmm, I don't have the tool to check .DPG format.
    This is becoming a hassle, all I wanted was to watch a movie =|

    Can anyone give me really precise step by step instructions?

    Just download the latest moonshell, install and see if the DPG movie works (which it should)

    Yup, I'm with Jamstruth, just download MoonShell v2.05 and you should be fine.

    Let us know how you get on.
