Convert VC-1 to H264

Is it possible to Convert VC-1 to H264 format as some of my Blu-Ray movies with VC-1 format will not play in Media Center only H264 format will.
Cheers

Yes. Use AutoMKV to encode video in addition to tsMuxer to combine audio and video to m2ts files. PS3 can not play .dts audio unless on a physical blu-ray. So you can re-encode audio to ac3 and then add it to the original file to include both audios.

I know you asked about Media Center, but I included additional helpful info. Anything else, let me know.

In AutoMKV, the 2 pass XBOX/PS3 preset is excellent for encoding and compatible with almost all sorts of players.

Maybe someone else can help further, but this is the registry code to merge to the reg to make WMC play mkv files. Perhaps it can be edited to do the same thing for your VC-1 files? I dunno.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ogm]
"PerceivedType"="video"
"Content Type"="video/x-ogm"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Multimedia\WMPlayer\Extensions\.ogm]
"Runtime"=dword:00000007
"Permissions"=dword:0000000f
"UserApprovedOwning"="yes"


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mkv]
"PerceivedType"="video"
"Content Type"="video/x-matroska"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Multimedia\WMPlayer\Extensions\.mkv]
"Runtime"=dword:00000007
"Permissions"=dword:0000000f
"UserApprovedOwning"="yes"

MKV is only a container (an extension, not a format/codec), and VC-1 is a codec.
