Windows 7: Error C00D11B1 when playing M4V files in WMP12/WMC6

That didn't work. It still froze in the same spot in WMP. I also tried renaming to .avi to no avail.

I've also been messing around with conversion to MKV files, using MKVMerge and XenonMKV, in order to convert them back to M4V. I've run into a couple problems there:
  1. I can't use XenonMKV because the files use a variable frame rate.
  2. Anytime I view the folder that has an MKV file in it, Explorer crashes. In fact, any program that uses the common dialog to open/save files crashes. I can't even manually delete the file in Command Prompt. Only deleting the containing folder in Command Prompt removes the file. This part is very frustrating and turning me off of MKVs.

The good news is that once I actually open the file in WMP, it plays fine (except for some occasional blockiness, which could be contributing to the problems I'm having). I'm not sure, however, if this file will be listed and play in my WMC TV Library plugin. I'd prefer to stay away from just using MKVs unless those two conditions are met.

The explorer crash is caused by a poorly encoded or incomplete torrent download of an MKV file. To stop the crash (and lose mkv thumbing) you need to disable the DivX MF splitter on the MKV TAB.

The best and easiest tool for conversion to MKV (or repair poorly encoded MKV's) is found on my Tools page, its called Metafox. Once installed, all you need to do is drag n drop any file to the Metafox desktop icon and it will write an MKV file in the originating folder.

Once you have repaired your MKV's using Metafox, you should be able to re-enable the DivX MF splitter to get proper thumbnails. MKV's that are found to be incomplete (Metafox cannot fix them), should just be deleted.

FYI, I'm still working on the solutions you've suggested...I've just been busy. Will respond with an update soon.

So here's what worked for me:

I think my computer doesn't especially like the codec I've been using to encode my DVDs. Apparently I can change that codec in Handbrake (from H.264 to MP4 ffdshow). I've run some tests, and doing so not only appears to work, but also cuts my file size by 90% and my encoding time needed by 85%. I also notice no degradation in quality because I don't own any Blu-Rays or other high-def content...only DVDs which are in a compressed format to begin with.

Unfortunately, I didn't solve the underlying error (which I think was simply because my files were corrupted somehow), but this is a fantastic workaround.
