MOHAWK: Looping videos aren't quite seamless in Riven (DVD)

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Mohawk
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Riven

Description (last modified by eriktorbjorn)

I don't know if this is an issue with the original game or not, but it seems that when videos loop in the DVD version of Riven there's a slight pause, perhaps just a frame.

The easiest way to reproduce is to start a new game, enter the debugger, and type "changeCard 380".

(In the CD version it's "changeCard 374", but that version doesn't seem to have the issue. At least not for that particular video.)

It looks like the actual looping works, but for some reason when it gets to the last frame the delay to the next frame is about twice as long as the delay between the subsequent frames.

So I guess either there's something off with the movies in the DVD version, or there's something off in the QuickTime decoder?
