    for some people, choosing to disable uac can cause weird issues like this. If you have disabled uac, i suggest that you uninstall the codecs, re-enable uac, reboot your system and then re-install the codecs.
    Respect to shark as, also other packs.

    Pixilated Videos may have nothing at all to do with Codecs.

    If the encoder was poorly setup, or used far too low of a bitrate for the resolution it will appear pixilated or blocky no matter what you play it back with.



    Is there a way to fix this then? A solution to this problem?
    If the cause is due to poor quality video, it depends on the video source.

    If this is a BluRay/DVD you ripped yourself, try upping the settings and most importantly bit rate, and recode from the original source again.


    If you downloaded the movie from somewhere, NO.
    Recoding to higher bitrates and better settings will only make it worse.

    The only proper way to fix it is recode from the original source.

    Although I highly recommend Sharks Codec package, as with any codec, the quality of the output will depend on exactly what they are decoding.
    If they are decoding a poor quality video, the decoded playback will look bad as well.
    This is not a problem with the codec.

    There's a coder/decoder/player and it's free, called Super Figured I'd mention

    Installation of the software known as 'SUPER' is a sure-fire way to break video playback.
    It dumps a crapload of codecs into the system32 directory.

    I stopped using these codec packs a few years ago.

    MPC x64
    CoreAVC (shareware)

    The best in my opinion.

    VLC works too, but maybe you did not notice this is posted in the Media Center forum.
    How does your opinion get video's to playback in Media Center?

    I had to disable the Microsoft decoder via registry so CoreAVC was the default.

    Windows 7 Media Center – CoreAVC and AC3Filter, and some useful plugins A Million Monkeys

    After I hacked the registry as per your link,
    1. I still cannot get FLV files to work in Media Center. Can you help with that?
    2. While you're at it, my m2ts files ripped from blu-ray's also fail to play in Media Center, please tell me how to fix that.
    3. Seems I can no longer playback evo files that I ripped from my old hd-dvd's, can you help with that too?
    4. Several of my AVI's have multiple audio tracks, how do I play those in Media Center with your hackjob?
    5. I have an MKV in a foriegn language with English subtitles, how do I get the subtitles working in Media Center?
    6. All of the above contain AVC video so your 'paid' solution to use coreavc should work with everything. How do I use coreavc to playback files in Media Center for filetypes that are not mkv?
    7. When using the Shark007 codecs, I can use the Windows Explorer Preview Pane to preview mkv's, flv's or even flac audio, please tell me how to do this without the codecpack.

    Of course, all of the above is possible when choosing to install the Win7codecs.

    I can go on . . . but I'll wait for you to solve these issues without the Shark007 codecs.
