MP3 Codec missing ?!

Hello Chris

thanks for your quick answer/suggestion - however, I just checked a
few minutes ago by re-installing my old version 4.6 of XATSHOW,
prepared a short slide show and added a MP3 from my misic library
for the music - IT STARTED TO CONVERT THE AUDIO FILE without errors.
(I think the file was 44100 Hz, 128 Kbps and joinm stereo).

It would be a pitty when you have to convert your MP3 files before
you can use them in the new version .... will consume a lot of
additional time.

rergards, Michael
