Windows Vista doesn't have native h264 decoding facilities within media center. In order to get this to work with vista you need the TV Pack 2008 installed.

Windows7 however does have native h264 decoding capabilities within both WMP12 and 7MC

Windows 7 Codecs Shark007 Pack makes codec installation easy

For mkv
