Just to inform you Nod32 found 2 viruses in your latest codec packs:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Win7codecs\Tools\Settings32.exe AUTOIT script.au3 - Win32/Packed.Autoit.Gen potentially unwanted application
C:\Program Files\Shark007\Tools\settings64.exe AUTOIT script.au3 - Win32/Packed.Autoit.Gen potentially unwanted application
This is old news, publicly ducumented HERE
There are suggestions to deal with the FALSE POSITVES here.

Bottom line, AUTOIT = the scripting language I use to write my settings interface.

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.
So, should I be using the x64 WMP as default? You suggest to change the x64 settings but I'm using the default x32 WMP.
No. Leave the 32bit WMP set as default, but do toggle to x64 player as enabled and then set it back to 32bit because this action will setup standalone flac audio in Media Center. 32bit codecs are your best option right now but Media Center is x64 only on your system so I made those suggestions to get you started in the right direction.
I'm still a bit confused on how your suggestion for adjusting my settings in the x64 configuration would help me in using the 32bit codecs that you suggest I use since 32bit is default on my x64 system. If you could walk me through your suggestion for my particular settings again that would be very helpful.

Been using your codecs ever since I switched to Win7x64 and been loving it, great job.

Quick question, I noticed recently that my .MOV (apple/quicktime) videos are starting up with WMP, and they play correctly to my surprise but without any audio. Can WMP actually get the audio as well, or should I restore the default settings and get quicktime to handle these?

Thanks

If the mov files are 'modern' such as current movie trailers, they should play without issue with audio and video. If this is the case, lets discuss it on my forum. If the files are originating from a camera you can try the camera setting on the MOV TAB. Also on the mov tab, you can try using Haali as the splitter. Some mov files (older ones) will require you to install QT Lite. I personally avoid the official quicktime software.

If so, i will promptly deal with it.
No particular file, just wondering how to properly apply your advice - whether I should be adjusting settings in the 32bit app or the x64.

Please make a post and supply a small sample for testing.

x86 players use x86 codecs (you use the x86 settings application for adjustment)
x64 players use x64 codecs (you use the x64 settings application for adjustment)

On an x64 Operating System, Media Center is x64 only.

There are 2 aspects of the 32bit settings application that are global in thier usage.
Global meaning they affect x64 also. Thumbnailing settings and the associations button on the Help TAB.

My personal recomendation is to use the x86 version of WMP because the codec support is far better for 32bit players. With Media Center, you do not have a choice. There is only 1 version, and it is x64. Without having the x64 codecs install virtually nothing would work in Media Center.

So the suggestions below were not for my x86 codec settings, just for WMC since you suggested to adjust the x64 settings, correct?

If so, I'm curious about any general x86 settings I might want to adjust based on our talks back and forth.

suggested deviations from a default installation for x86...

Help TAB, associate filetypes
SWAP TAB, Disable the DMO video codecs
SWAP TAB, choose ffdshow for xvid etc.
SWAP TAB, disable the Microsoft Audio decoder (unless you use LiveTV, then leave it alone)
H264 TAB, select the divx codec
Audio TAB, match your hardware
Config TAB, lower boxes, match your hardware

None of this is set as defaults because most new users coming to the shark codecs like the idea that i do not deviate from the Microsoft settings by default. These are the same users that do not fully investigate the possibilities my interface offers and then can't understand why things still arent workin well.

Once you do have a working setup with 99% of your media playback as you wish it, PLEASE use the provided 'save settings' feature of the Misc TAB. Since I force uninstalls and do not allow upgrades, using the restore feature after a re-install will have you set back up in the wink of an eye.
