Problems

VP6 Videos

NBA Live 2004 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing it's videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on NVIDIA graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. Prior to 4.0-593 video output was completely scrambled, refer issue 5046. Rendering improved with 4.0-593 but a variety of glitches remain, refer issue 7193. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling.
