Windows 7: MKV not using .sub file, Shark codec WMC

MKV not using .sub file, Shark codec WMC

Hi I'm on a Win7 HomePremium x64, and have installed Shark007's Win7CodecPack and the x64 components.

In Windows Media Center, I can't get the sub titles to show on my mkv files, but they seem to work fine in VLC.

Steps I've taken:
  • Made sure the .srt file is in the same directory as the video
  • Made sure they are named the same
  • Searched through this board to try what Shark had recommended to others (Go to SWAP in x64 app, Disable Windows Media Foundation, Disable Microsoft's Video Recorder, etc)


Still no luck. Hopefully I don't have to do a clean format to get this working. Any help would be appreciated.

You can use mkvtoolnix (mmg GUI) to mux in the sub file by dragging in its idx file. You may be able to directly mux the srt also.

Whats the best file extension/codec for 1080p/5.1 streaming?
I'm looking to stream some of my Bluray rips from my Media Center server to my 360. I just recently got a 1080p TV (kinda late I know) and was just doing rips at 720p in .mkv and then converting them using mkv2vob to .m2ts using what I assume is an mpeg2 codec. I've noticed if I do the same with...
