Windows 7: VC-1 Codecs not working with MCE??

windows 7 64

I have Windows 7 64

I wanted to know if anyone knows how to fix the problem of playing hd m2ts files that have the VC1 AP@L3 in them
I noticed that MPC and Windows Media player will not play the video; the screen is black
all other blu-ray video files from movies play fine; interestedly, Power DVD 9 or 10 plays these VC1 files with no problem

the reason I ask is because these same VC1 AP@L3 files cannot be inputted in softwares like Nero 10, Xilisoft, Sothink,etc

all of these softwares can take other m2ts files with no problem; no copy protection on any of these files

I think it has to be the same reason; some type of codec; the files that play on MPC or Windows Media player can be inputted in all these softwares to edit or make disc, etc

can anyone let me know what codec I need to install to get these to play

I also have tried the windows 7 filter tweaker; for 64 bit under VC1; they only show microsoft as the choice

Demux the Video/Audio stream with TsMuxer.
You should end up with a VC1 file and either DTS or AC3 for audio.

Re-Mux them as a MKV file.
MKV will be less troublesome.

yeah the MKV way works but I did not think the quality of the MKV was the same as the m2ts file
a better way would be to fix the VC1 codec problem; then I can play using mpc or wmp and put the files into nero and other softwares

The quality should be the same.
MT2S,MKV,MP4 are nothing but a container to hold the streams.
The main difference being MT2S has a lot higher overhead. Meaning the container itself is a larger file size.

Whats inside them does not change.

The only other thing I can suggest, if you prefer the MT2S container, is Shark007s codec pack.
You can then decode using FFDshow or HW accleration.

You'll need the 64bit add on as well however if you intend on using WMC, and have 64bit Windows.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Using the Shark007 Settings Application,
choose to use the SUGGESTED settings checkbox
and then on the MPG~MP4 TAB, set the blu-ray splitter.

The above information will only work with the latest releases
v269 for 32bit and v273 for 64bit

On x64 operating systems,
Media Center is a 64bit player, requiring you to make these settings in the 64bit application.
