Multimedia under FreeDOS

My goal was, to view videos and listen to MP3s, CDs and OGGs under DOS. (Seems to work.) I am using 2 Programs:

-- MPXPLAY - for listening to CDs, MP3s, AAC and OGGs.
-- QV - for playing AVIs, DivX, MPEG and Video CDS.

{Maybe somebody of you have QV (Quickview, supports AVI, MPEG, DivX, MP3, OGG etc.), it is shareware, but I can advise you to buy a license, it is a very good program! }

I have a pc, with DVD, CD-ROM and extern USB HD, SBLive! Pci and wanted to play multimediafiles in DOS. Because DUSE (USB driver) and QV seemED incompatible i used the EMU parameter by DUSE.

My fdconfig.sys and fdauto.bat (corrections or improvements are welcome):

fdconfig.sys

DOS=HIGH,UMB
country=049,850
files=50
stacks=9,256
buffers=30
LASTDRIVE=L
screen=0x12

device=c:\fdos\bin\bin\fdxxmst.sys

DEVICE=c:\usb\cdrom\oakcdrom.sys /d:cd1

DEVICE=c:\udma\udma.sys

DEVICE=c:\duse\duse.exe MEM=50 INT13 EMU

shell=c:\fdos\bin\command.com /P /K:FDAUTO.BAT

fdauto.bat

@echo off
SET TZ=GHO-02:00
path=c:\;c:\djgpp\bin;c:\zip;c:\fdos\bin
set DJDIR=C:\DJGPP
set DJGPP=c:\djgpp\djgpp.env
set SET_FILES=e:/setedit/
