Windows 7: Problem playing 1080p mkv's

Problem playing 1080p mkv's

Hi,

I just bought new LCD that if full HD (1080p) and, of yourse, I'd like to watch movies in full HD resolution. The problem is that movies often won't start playing (I use Windows Media Center) and I can't figure out why. Movies in lower resolution (ie. 720p) play perfectly. The only problem are movies in the 1080p resolution. I tried several movies and every time is the same - I press play and nothing happens. It's like it is loading the movie forever... I must say that rarely I do manage to play the movie, but that happens in 1 out of 10 attempts.
I don't think my computer is too slow. My system's specs are in my CP. I would really be grateful if someone could help me. Thanks.

Regards, Sasha.

Hey.

Use Mediaplayer Classic Home Cinema with output set to EVR Custom Pres. **

This way, you will be using hardware acceleration which means your graphics card will do all the work. Your cpu will be like 10% or less in use while watching.

OK, sorry for not answering until now

If possible, I'd like to play 1080p movies in Media Center because I bought the computer for that purpose. So, I'd like to avoid using Media Player Classic if I can.

I don't think the problem is in the codec (I use ffdshow) because all of my 720p movies plays perfectly and sometimes (but rarely) I can get 1080p movies to play too.

I use D-SUB cable. Could that be the problem? I'm at work now so I can't try but I'll try connecting with HDMI cable.

A D-sub cable is not intended for throughput speeds needed for HD - I suggest the HDMI cable as your best option for best video on your hardware. Make sure you shutdown, unplug PC and Monitor power, attach the HDMI cable and when back in WMC re-run the TV setup.

That's very rare to find a 1080p resolution. Even DVD;s are only 480p,. some come with upscaling to make them rub at 720p.

Only some Digital Satellites (DirectTV or Dish) and Blue-ray disks are capable of 1080 p.

Just because it;s a widescreen it doesn't mean it will play 1080 p.

OK, I'll try with the HDMI cable.

@reghakr: I don't know what do you mean... I want to watch movies (mkv's) in full HD (1080p). I don't plan to watch TV in full HD because there aren't any in Croatia.

Yes, try HDMI cable and also you need ffdshow codec and matroska splitter installed.
