I seem to have an issue, but i dont think its the codecs, i think its my gfx card...

anyone want to have a look at the fault..
Picasa Web Albums - Lez - bigbang

last of the four pictures, click the 100% magnify and drag image so you can see top left, you will see what should be a solid colour wall, has stripes....

I'm sure is not on the source footage, which I took from s03e04bigbang, 180.33mb with sample, its from the midpoint of the sample)(I only downloaded the sample, not the whole episode, i think i'm right in that clips of less than a certain length are not infringing copyright, but lets not discuss that here, this is a image qualitypost not a morals debate, and for comparison to other software/hardware, it needs a clip thats easily obtainable, I know the length issue applies to tv broadcasts in my country)

If your Video drivers are up to date from the ATI website I'd say your card has a problem.

off topic:
lool @ flez holy buddha is everybody watching big bang theory? i just did this screen cap yesterday:


Big Bang Theory - Media Player Quality Test!


back to the topic at hand. sharky, so i installed the version prior to 2. and as explained on your site i had to install the 32bit before installing the 64bit. should i remove both the 32bit and the 64bit and reinstall the new ones or just the 64bit?

and did you fix the issue with that mkv?

2.0 has enough changes / enhancements to do a complete version jump. Most would consider that type of version jump to be an important release. I would suggest using it. The x64 Components has the same enhancements as its 32bit counterpart but isnt really a codec package but more of an addon for the 32bit release therefore it didnt receive the version jump as the 32bit release had.

There is nothing to 'fix' concerning that MKV.
The simple matter of fact is that it is extremely pooly encoded to the point that almost all players fail to play it. The only true fix is to use the delete button. The fact that KMPlayer can handle it is a virtue of the player and not an indication of a codec issue.

seems my card decodes nearly everything in hardware, if i want it to or not... and thats where that striping effect is coming from, i have mailed ati, i may hold my breath, but i dont think that would work. I may need to buy a new graphics card and hate ati for ever, please matrox make desktop cards again......

So to sum up, ts not a fault in the codec pack.

a little help please?

I'm using shark's codec to play FLV files in WMP so I think the issue of FLV files not having a timecode in the library has to do with some kind of codec setting?

The player itself is at fault. Simple proof is that other players do not exibit this behavior. FLAC reacts identically to flv. Unless you're a Microsoft engineer, or can influence one, nothing will be done to correct it. This issue is not new and has existed since XP (at least)

If you use the Filetypes Association button provided on the Help TAB, you can also choose multiple files in Windows Explorer, rightclick, and use 'Add to Windows Media Player list' and all files will be seekable within Windows Media Player.

Hello, Shark. I came to a call for help. I always was a loser, when the matter was configuring codecs in my PC. And even now, with Windows 7 (an awesome OS) and your codec pack (I believe heartily in your work, dude), Im having a bad time here.

First, I already have seen the poor quality of VLC player, compared with the new WMP (and this is a good point to WMP. This is the first time, in long years, that I want to use it!). So, I see your codec pack, read the entire treadh here, and tried to install it and configure it to load my .rmvb, .flv and .mkv all in the WMP.

After try this or that configuration, this is what I achieve:

a) the .flv, .rmvb and .mkv insist in dont open in WMP;
b) if I open a folder that contains a .rmvb or a .mkv file, the explorer crashes.

Now, as I said early, I trust in your codec pack, and I have a history of personal problems with codec packs.

So, if you, or any other partner here of the forum, could help me to make a good config of my Windows, I will be very grateful.

Im using the 7100 compilation, 64 bits.

Right now, I unninstalled the codec pack (and even with this, some of my files dont open now in the WMP, only in VLC), to take control again of my explorer.

Well, thanks in advance for the help, and sorry for the bad english.

The quoted text above is the cause of all of your codec problems.

Acquire an RTM build, and be sure to install this update.

Well, the good point is that this time, its not my fault.

So, I will wait until the official release. Some brazilian shops are working with the pre-selling, but my finances need a little of time, before I buy it.

Thanks for the info, Shark. When I upgrade my OS, I will came to your pack again.
