thanks for the info swarfega

i was a loyal vlc man for many years until it broke my aero on my first windows 7 install, so i switched to kmp and that does the job (ie play any video without needing external codec packs), but it does have its quirks.

anyway, i downloaded this new vlc version - and it seems that they've fixed aero support (although they don't mention it in the release notes). so it's time to resume our long-term relationship...

yes, it plays them. but not perfectly. MPC/KMP + CoreAVC + AC3Filter offers better quality.

looks like i spoke too soon

playing a lo-res video in fullscreen looks awful unless i choose different video output modes:

1 - directx output fixes the scaling issue, but kills aero (so what if you're in fullscreen i hear you cry, well it kills aero in windowed mode too)

2 - opengl output gives good scaling, good with aero, but i lose ability to see/use osd when i move my mouse

maybe it's my drivers - anyone else notice this?

oh well, back to kmp i guess, i'll just have to get used to its quirks.

i'm reluctant to use mpc and codec packs as i have run into incompatability issues with games before.

What settings do you use for WMP? I want to play me MKVs on WMP or MPC. I currently have the following codecs installed...

CCCP codec Pack
CoreAVC pro
Ogg codecs
Haali Media Splitter

Which should I keep? get rid of??

I am new to this game so please be as detailed as possible as to what settings I need too use. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
