Windows 7: Win7codecs

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit
 
 

Hi Shark!

Glad to see you made it here!

I'm going to throw my hat in the Win7Codec pack too, I've been using this pack since it's inception and I've used every other codec pack & player out there. Shark's pack is the Lightest, most complete pack of Vista and Windows 7 compatible codecs in existence. And now that he's wrapped up a settings GUI for both versions, it's the easiest to configure (if needed) also. 90% of users will never need to touch those tho as the default settings work for all regular usage.
Stuff just plays in WMC and WMP with this pack and zero overhead.

I'm using the latest win7codecs and x64 addon. I'm having a problem getting any mkv container file that has flac audio to play in WMP x64. I get video but no audio. The same files play fine in MPC-HCx64 using ffdshow audio decoder. Any ideas or input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

APorter saught assistance on my forums....
he is now happily playing his mkv's containing flac in the x64 versions of WMP and MediaCenter.



Version 1.2.4, recently released, have a look at the screenshot posted:
Download URL: Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs



This release will allow you full control of what H264 codec is used by the Microsoft Players
It will also give full MKV thumbnailing when selecting a codec other than Microsoft's
Uninstall/Reset All reverts any changes you have made and re-locks the Microsoft codecs.

I was holding back commenting here but it has to be said;

your 1st statement is that you are happy with your current playback
your 2nd statement is that you dont want to install something you do not need
....... so why ask if you should install more codecs when you feel you have it covered?

To install my codecs you would 1st need to ABANDON everything you have previously installed. Haali, Matoska splitter (isnt this Haali?) FFDshow, and probably Zoom player as well, unless you can block its internal codec instllation process. If it installed codecs, you're best uninstalling the player also. That in itself would be scary, but to each thier own. I am not familiar with Zoom player, so I could be completely wrong on that point.

My installations support ANY directshow player (not just 1 player) but I focus mainly on the native players, Windows Media Player and MediaCenter. I'm sure Zoom player can still be utilized using my codecs, but you'd 1st need to block its internal codec installation mechanism. (if it has this).

Installing my software will playback 90% of currently available video's using a default installation and no settings adjustments whatsoever. The obscure 10% not covered by default settings are easily handled with a simple tweak applied through the provided Settings Application. If an AVI fails to play, go into the Settings Application, click the AVI TAB, and choose a different splitter. Often choosing Gabest will play that odd AVI that failed innitially. Same settings adjustments apply to other popular formats, such as MKV etc.

Anyway, bottomline to my story....
If your current playback ability satisfies you, don't look elsewhere.
Fire up that 'singular player', and enjoy a video. It is already working for you.
