Just doing some detective work here.

Action (MooVId)
At www.dfmk.hu/~torokl/

It looks like the last version of MooVid was 1.5 (25.05.2001), I assume this version was released after the one bundled with OS 3.9?

If 1.5 was newer, does anyone know if it was any faster than Action?

According to the blurb, it should display a 240x180 truecolor AVI/MOV at 15FPS (without skipping) in perfect (!) colors on 030/50 AGA (which happens to be my setup).

Whereas with Action I can barely manage 1FPS and it's all in greyscale for some strange reason, oh and that sound is stuffed too? I've also noticed that Action seems like a very stipped down version because I can't see anyway to configure the sucker?

Before anyone mentions it, I know my 030/050 is not the machine to use for playing back movies....this is just for fun

I just found this review which leads me to think that maybe 'NOGUI' is specified in the TOOLTYPES by default in Action....I'll have to check.

I checked the tooltypes and found that it was set to windowmode. Once set to run fullscreen it allowed me to render in HAM mode and the sound now works correctly...very interesting and impressive for an AGA only machine.

Action in AmigaOS3.9 is nothing more than a renamed MooVid 1.3 or MooVid Pro 2.0

You should get MooVid 1.6 (68k) and update avcodec.library from aminet plus the 3ivx codec library referenced at MooVid`s website. Then you will have a much more updated, enhanced and bugfixed version.

I did it!

I wondered what version of MooVid Action was....

Yep I know MooVid 1.6 was the last version, but bugger me if I can find it anywhere (the download section on the offical site is dead).

Update: Ok, found and installed 1.6
