Windows 7: Win7codecs

Wow Win7codec is the best codec pack that you can find but...
I installed the x86 and x64 pack on my Windows 7 and enabled WMP 12 x64 as default.
While playing .avi files with a .sub subtitle file a i din't have subtitles.
I spent abt an hour reinstalling the codec pack, manually disabling
Windows Media Foundation,...

And after an hour i re-entered the Setup config x64 and found that subtitles are disabled, enabled them (via DirectVobSub) and they worked!

Question 2 Shark007: Why aren't the subtitles enabled in the default settings in the x64 components (and they are enabled in the x86)?

1st of all a fact that should be acknowledged is that I personally came up with the only viable x64 version of Gabests VSFilter.dll (aka DirectVobSub) because every other version out there was/is causing HUGE problems for all windows users. The code used to compile this version is over 3yrs old because current code cannot be compiled to x64.

Based on the feedback I have received from users of my x64 release I came to the conclusion that disabling it by default was the right thing to do. You, as a user, are empowered to make your own decision of leaving it on but the majority users find that CPU usage becomes unbearable if you leave it enabled 24/7. I suggest only enabling it as needed.

They are enabled by default on 32bit installations. If you have an x64 system, open the x64 settings application, click on the Config TAB, and poke DirectVobSub in the upper right.

It's strange that WMP provides ultrasmooth playback on high bitrate .ts files(mpeg2) via the DTV DXVA codec, but when I play the same file via MPC-HC, which uses that same DTV DXVA codec, it's really choppy, CPU usage is not high at all..

Strange...

The fact that you are experiencing issues with an experimental player is not strange, it is expected.
Please try a version MPC-HC from Shark007.net - Tools for Windows 7 codecs and see if you have the same results.

Shark, is there a page you can link to that shows the "proper" configuration of your codecs for Win7 x64 installations? Or, is that something currently being worked on? I am one of the few with the inexplicable grainy/poor video problems with my Win7 x64 and NVIDIA 8600GTS, so I'm just trying to find the best configuration I can until this issue (ever) gets resolved.

I've heard Win7 comes with a new rendering system (EVR) which I guess could be causing this but have no clue how to get around that if that's even the whole issue.

There is no such thing as a proper configuration that will meet everyone's needs.

What works for this person, doesnt for that person. My codec releases EMPOWER you to find your own playback niche setup that works for you and also allows you to save that configuration once you figure it out. (Save/Restore settings on the MISC TAB)

You should NOT be having grainy/poor playback.

Often this is the result of a default installation and no exploration of the available settings on the part of the user. I have gone to great lengths to assist users along thier journey of self discovery. A feature you should get familiar with is called Reset All. Explore the possibilities the configuration TABS offer and when you get in to deep, use Reset All. This feature sets all configuration settings back to installation defaults. Keep track of what worked and what didnt.

My releases will solve your issue(s) but on that note, there is no one configuration that will work for everyone. Also, I have not implemented known 'good' settings purposely because research told me that I should NOT touch the system settings by default.

I can suggest to you, open the x64 Settings Application, select FFDshow on the righthand side of the H264 TAB and also go to the SWAP TAB and select FFDshow for everything there except WVC1 and MPEG2. These suggestions will probably correct any poor playback you are currently experiencing.

A couple of handy suggestions:
M2TS files that play without audio, on the SWAP TAB, choose to disable Windows Media Foundation.
And one more for x64 users. Playback of Standalone FLAC audio files in x64 MC. On the Config TAB of the x64 Application, choose to toggle the WMP to x64 and back to 32bit will permanenly enable x64 MC to play standalone FLAC audio.

Shark, I cannot even tell you how thankful I am for your codec packs. I used them with Vista and now with Windows 7. Fantastic work man!
