HowTo / Notes

Making music, voice and pilots video to work

You will need two native components:

  • amstream.dll
  • quartz.dll

Easy way with winetricks:

  1. Install winetricks using your distro’s package manager.

  2. In terminal, run:

    $ winetricks amstream quartz
    $ wine regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll"
    $ wine regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\quartz.dll"

Hard way without winetricks:

  1. Find amstream.dll and quartz.dll in prefered search engine.

  2. Place them in $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32/

  3. In terminal, run:

    $ wine regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\amstream.dll"
    $ wine regsvr32 "c:\windows\system32\quartz.dll"

Tested on Arch Linux with Wine v.4.4.

You won’t need anything else like Active Movie for IE.

As for now, the only bugged thing is Dynamic lights. It works only until you open up a menu.
