Text is giberish - Audio Plays on videos sometime

Postby hereathome » Wed Aug 06, 2014 10:34 am

I am upgrading to a new pc running windows 8.1 I am having two issues.

1 The text from the information tab showing file path, date and other user selectable items is "gibberish". That is the font is illegible and has vaguely formed letters of a sort but are definitely not readable. What could the problem be?

2 I am using VLC to play the videos in the scree save and have gPhotoShow configured to "disable audio". But every so often the audio plays anyway. How can I stop the audio from playing.

Thanks for any help!

This bug or "feature" has been introduced in windows 8.0 and never fixed by Microsoft. A workaround was implemented in gPhotoShow Pro version 6.1.1

VLC changed the way third party program should disable audio and this was fixed in gPhotoShow Pro 6.6.2

If you are using a gPhotoSho Pro version older than 6 I would advise to upgrade to version 7, the upgrade is not free but all those issue will be fixed. If you are using gPhotoShow Pro 6 download and install the update to v6.6.3
