Windows 7 x64

Vlc has so many streaming options if you decide to go with it you can get around media center.

win 7 pro x64

i'm havingh te same issue -

except my avi files don't show up anywhere. I'm very frustrated at this point. Why the heck doesn't this stuff just work.

i had it working a few weeks ago and poof it stopped. I'm not sure if it's because i installed shark inbewteen or not. I just know that now i cannot see my avi files in wmc. I can see mkv files and they play ok.

I downloaded and installed K-lite Codec Pack and the AVI files plays. Thanks. I found the solution from TechiSky Windows Media Player AVI Playback solution.
