Am I to understand that (on windows) puredata and gem_video can only play files in avi, and possible mov containers? So that straight mpeg-files is not possible to play?

Sorry for such a basic question, but I thought that since I have a mpeg2 direct show filter installed, I should be able to open mpeg-files. But that might only be in an avi-container then?

As I am writing this, I feel I should test before I ask, but, others might wonder as well.
