Windows 7: Yet another MKV thread - I've read them all...

well with all your vast sharing of knowledge baarod, your suggestion will leave the user with a MediaCenter that can only play mpegs.
While that sounds bad, it really isn't. Media Foundation can play anything from mpeg2 through 4 including divx, xvid, h.264, modern quicktime etc. Saying "can only play mpegs" confuses most people and makes them think "Oh, gee, I'll only be able to play 'foo.mpeg'. I don't want that!" and that's just not the case as you well know.

Precisely why Windows 7 makes it such a pain to find and run the 64-bit versions of WMP and WMC. So run the 32-bit versions. There is absolutely no difference besides all the headaches you get with 64-bit. None.

AAC? Done. AC3? Works for me. You're talking about weirdo "Open Sores" stuff like Vorbis and Theora? Recode the weirdos with avidemux and be done with it. And never download from that source again.

nuff said, I have things to do
Actually if you look at the post above, I said yours were the best. But I was unaware of the "new feature". Where'd you find a native MKV DMO? Last I looked GraphEdit and GSpot still showed MKV mpg4 streams rendering through DirectShow when your codec pack was installed. I didn't see anything on your website at Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs about it. Looked to me like you were still using Haali -- when did that change?

man, i cant get no rest, eh. (i'm glad you placed my pack above the rest, even if you dislike the concept)

Graphedt is incapable of displaying WMF, its a directshow editor.
For WMF you need topoedit.

Didn't mean to stir a hornet's nest boys...

Shark,

Tried disabling subtitles in both the x32 and x64 configurators (and rebooted for good measure) and I still get the stuttering issue.

The issue may be a network issue though, as the media is stored on my server, and while I have a gigabit switch and both NIC's are gigabit as well, you never know, given the amount of data I'm pushing through the switch and router at any given time *COUGH*torrents*COUGH*

As I said, I'll try both solutions, and see which one works best. So far, I've been very happy with Shark's codecs, which I've been using for a while now.

I just want to make my W7 machine run as smooth as possible, as I plan on making this machine my dedicated theater machine.

Regards,

Ish

Can you give the DivX thing a try and let me know if that stutters too? Should only take a minute...

Of the codec packs Shark's is far and away the best one out there and I think I shouldn't have lumped his work in with some of the "others". The fact remains that regardless of the quality of Shark's work, he's still using DirectShow filters, and, while they might work in Windows 7, performance is likely to be sub-optimal:

There are several DirectShow enCODer/DECoder implementations but none take advantage of as wide an array of hardware video acceleration as the Microsoft Windows 7 implementation. In essence, Microsoft leveraged their mighty influence with graphics hardware manufacturers to ensure that the support for video playback acceleration is included in every Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certified driver whose hardware supports such acceleration. Basically, if the hardware vendor supports acceleration and the vendor does not supply drivers that make Media Foundation playback as fast as possible on the hardware, Microsoft won't certify the drivers. For 64-bit that's even more important because by default, unsigned drivers won't even install!

ffdshow (used by Shark's pack) just can't match that.
This one? or did I miss something?

Shouldn't need to. Try without uninstalling first and if it still stutters uninstall both this one and Shark's and then reinstall this one.

Did just that.

Does not play MKV at all in media center. I get the same error that began this thread. Is this because those codecs are x32 and not x64? Is there a config panel somewhere I need to play with?
