Windows 7: Media player video Issues

Media player video Issues

Hello all,

I am running a newly built win 7 64 machine dual core pentium E5800 with GMA X4500 graphics. I Need some advice on players on what I am seeing now.

When playing a DVD (both optical drive and ripped file structure) video quality is poor. Specifically, I am getting whats called clay face and blotchy type artifacts.

So far all of the players I have tried; WMP, WMP-HC,TMT5,VLC, do this except for one..KM-Player. What is KM player doing different in terms of processing the video?

Is this a codec problem or something else? Why is the quality the way it should be when using KM-Player?

Unfortunately I do not like the KM-Player interface and user controls donít appear to support WMC remote functions.

I would like to use TMT5 or WMP-HC in my final build but the video quality needs to be excellent.

Thx for any comments
Bnw

If you choose to install the Shark007 Win7codecs + the x64Components addon, you will have High Quality playback of all filetypes in Media Center. If you're seeking assistance with these codecs, search the Shark007 forum for answers.

I have considered installing the shark codec pack, my understanding is that removes win 7 codecs. If I want to revert back how easy is this to do?

It removes nothing except conflicting codecs like Klite. It uses the Microsoft decoders by default.
Uninstall is clean and ensures that the Microsft decoders are in place and functional.

I'll give it go, I will be using this with MB in WMC, any online guide for using external players with shark and MB.
Or words of advice...do's/dont's

Media Center will play all your files directly.

To enable Media Center playback functionality, use the button on the Help TAB of the installed 'Settings Application' to associate filetypes to the Windows players.

You will not need an external player.

Installed both shark packs and WMP When playing a DVD (both optical drive and ripped file structure) video quality is poor. same clay face and blotchy type artifacts. Kinda looks looks the actors are in an oil painting. Are there any other filters or setting that will fix this?

On the SWAP TAB under MPEG2 (dvd video), you can select to use the PDVD11 decoder.

Windows Media Player 12 Video Lag
While watching an avi movie if I minimize it, leave it minimized for a second or or two, then re-open the video lags or slows down for a few seconds then returns playing normal. This also happens if I maximize a window over media player, then close it, the video also lags.
