Hi all,

I'm trying to debug while playing my content with Power DVD using Eclipse. There is some info in Bill Foote's presentation in Barcelona, but it seems that I can't find the registry entry mentioned. We are using Power DVD 7.3. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks guys! Your help is much appreciated!

I understand that Power DVD no longer supports the option to connect to a Java GUI and use the console for debugging. The problem that I have now is that I still can't find the registry entries mentioned nor the javaLog.txt file. I'm working under XP if this is of any help and I'm using Admin account.

Hi Mihailm,

Cut the following text and place it in notepad, then save it as "Cyberlink.reg" (please use the double quotes). After you have saved the file double click on it. Here is the text:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cyberlink\POWERDVD]
"BDJDebugLog"=dword:00000001

Hope this helps.

Hi Denny,

Yeah, now it's working! Thanks a lot for the help!

BTW CyberLink have changed the directory where the javaLog.txt file is located. Currently on my 7.3 it is in "user.home/javaLog.txt" - in my case "C:\Documents and Settings\User\javaLog.txt".

Hi mihailm,

This was a feature that was part of PowerDVD about a year + ago but with the version you have this does not support remote debugging. The best thing you can do is use the text file as mentioned above.

Also there are techniques you can use to set up a Java Application that will allow you to run and debug your code. This is a good way to test your code before using it. I would recommend (http://www.filthyrichclients.com/) almost every sample could not run in a Player however, the samples can provide you with a good start to build your own test harness for debugging.

Cheers,

Hi mihailm,

you should try the BDJDebugLog registry entry mentioned in:

If it works you will get a javaLog.txt file in the NavFilter folder of your PowerDVD installation directory.
