Yes, I am using the latest version.

I tried to stream
with testMPEG1or2AudioVideoStreamer.exe but
the same result.)
For the mpeg2 video elementary stream file, I actually used the splittler
program to get the video elem part of the above program stream file.
To make sure that it was video elem. stream, I ran a program that tells me
exactly what kind of file it is so I'm sure it is a video elem. stream file.
Thanks for the help.
