VC-1 Codecs not working with MCE??

My avc movies in MKV containers are working fine but my VC-1 Remuxes (Untouched video) don't play within MCE??? Media Player Classic just works fine?

I have installed the Windows 7 codecs from Shark and using FFDSHOW. Tried VC-1 with Libavoc and WM9.

Can anyone help me?

I'm running the 64-bit RC with only Haali's Media Splitter (x64) installed and I can play everything in both WMP and Media Center.
I have the 64-bit on my desktop computer. I installed the 32bit on my HTPC to fix the problems. I only using it for my HD movies.

Can you explain to my how you installed everything and are you also playing VC-1 MKV files?

I tried this now http://www.hack7mc.com/2009/02/mkvs-...windows-7.html

But it's not working with Haali and only with Gabest. I don't know what the difference is but I would like to have the best......

Update: Clean install again (windows 7 64bit v.7127). Shark codecs made my sound config dissapear so I couldn't use this anymore. I am now trying this solution MKVs for Minimalists on Windows 7 on Hack7mc.com Installed FFDSHOW 32 and 64 bit. Everything is working including VC-1 Encodes. Only problem is that VC-1 codec is not using FFDSHOW???? So if anyone can show me how to fix this?

Smuller,

I'm having exactly the same problem you're having (or were having). I'm using Win7 RC build 7100 (32 bit) and can play back all of my ripped blu-ray files (mkv & .m2ts) with exception of those blu-ray files encoded using VC-1 codecs. I have tried bypassing the windows foundation codecs by disabling them, but when I do this ffdshow doesn't lauch even though I specifiy in the ffdshow config that it decode VC-1 files using wm9. Would you mind walking me through exactly what you did to get your VC-1 files to playback in MCE, as this driving me nuts? Also, are your VC-1 files saved in .mkv file containers or .m2ts file containers?

Many thanks,

Battles

Hey, how do u disable the foundation codecs?
My vc-1 are all in MKV files and are playing within MCE but not with FFDSHOW. The quality is not as good as FFDSHOW........ all the AVC h.264 in MKV are all playing fine!!

I read elsewhere that in addition to including several video filters to deal with more content, Windows 7 also basically blocks any third party from overriding their filters. There are a few players that work around this issue, such as Zoom Player, VLC, or SMplayer. There's also reputedly a tool available to override Windows 7's settings.

As far as Matroska, I'd try the Combined Community Codec Pack.

Look, Media Classic Player is working fine with FFDSHOW highest quality. The mystery is MCE internal player? I've got FFDSHOW working (MCDU) with AVC H.246 encodes but the remuxen (VC-1) is still using the internal codec and that quality is not as good unfortunately

This problem was outlined on the forums at doom9.net. The tool for changing DirectShow filters was made for exactly that reason. For anyone that's interested, it can be downloaded via Doom9 here.
