anyone know how to get vista mce to play mkv mp4 mov ogg ogm and such forth?
not a fan of cccp - i have ffdshow installed and all formats play fine, its just that MCE cant handle the containers, i know there are reg entries and such but i cant find the links i had, i have mkv working under x64
MCE is 64-bit under Vista x64 then you couldn't play XviD files in MCE. Installing XviD x64 or ffdshow x64 would allow XviD playback but unfortunately playback using ffdshow x64 results in very stuttered and bad playback which is totally unwatchable IMHO
dont know what system you have but latest ffdshow x64 works fine on all my systems and xvid doesnt stutter or cause me any issues and plays fine in mce
then again i wouldnt expect any stuttering on a quad core.
I have had mkvs and such playing in 64bit mce before i just cant find the link to the reg entries i need to add
old ffdshow, which when i used it before i had some issues which were fixed in an updated ffdshow.
I'll just google the links again, bound to find them somewhere
Did you try vistacodecs or k-lite?
Maybe I'll try an older ffdshow x64 release. I installed the compile version released today. I'll try going back and see if older versions work.
k-lite codec pack is a load of ****e, and comes packaged with things it shouldnt
I have a Q6600 with 8 GB of memory under Vista x64 with an ATI 4870. I cannot get ffdshow x64 to not stutter with XviDs. If I use the x64 compile of XviD everything is smooth. This is the only situation I've run into playback problems with anything.
and i have the same as you and everything plays fine so your issue lies else where, if your telling me a quard core cant play an avi your system needs a swift kick up the ass.
Anyway i have it all workng fine, ffdshow x64 and a few registry entries and MCE can see the files, and it wasnt a fact about the codecs mce just didnt know how to read the container formats
both of them are strings - not dwords
keep changing that for the extensions you want, i would also suggest updating vista and ati drivers, as i feel thats where the issue may lay
