    Wink Already reported it!

    Thanks clarf! I actually did report it as a bug about three days ago.

    I know what you mean. Many people don't seem to like IrfanView for playing videos! They think it should just be an image viewer. I'm happy with its limited video capabilities though, and I just think if it shows shortcuts, they should at least work.

    Question What?

    I didn't understand your reply Bhikkhu. What are you referring to? What are you showing in your screenshot and what do you mean AVI files don't even show a picture?

    I understand that there are better choices for multimedia, but for simple playback of video Irfanview is just fine. I just think the shortcuts should work if they are showing up in a menu. Is that too much to ask for?

    The attachment is what I see when I try to play an AVI file, hence my reason for recommending a multimedia player for this task. I get sound, but no picture, just a piece of whatever happens to be on the screen.

    IMO it is too much ta ask an image viewer to work with all kinds of video and audio. Obviously, if one tries to support too many file types, less development time is available to fix bugs and improve the core features. Wouldn't you rather have a really top class image viewer, and use another program for multimedia? I know I would.

    Default Which problem?

    So what you're saying is that you can't even get an AVI file to play to even begin to try any of IrfanView's features? I have no problem with AVI. You did however confirm that the shortcuts, or at least Ctrl+2 doesn't work with a WMV file? I'm not sure if you were talking about the Copy command mentioned by willgoss.

    I would normally copy and paste elsewhere.....seems I must save (at times) and then copy from the saved location....

    Does using DirectShow, play your problematic AVI? If it did though, you unfortunately wouldn't be able to get a context menu to try a shortcut.

    Wink Video can be Zoomed!

    BTW, the commands in the shortcut menus and submenus all work. It is just their shortcut keys don't. Any ideas?
    As a workaround, remember that video can be zoomed (hotkey, toolbar, or menu) in IrfanView!
