Windows 7: MKV playback issue after boot

27 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional (64bit)

ld prefer to stay with CCCP, lve used it for years and matches all the formats l play.. in fact it was specifically aimed at the anime community, and the issue lve experienced its the first glitch lve ever had if its related to something within the codec pack, from what lm aware however it seems like there might be a new pack out soon so maybe things will work better soon who knows.


thanks for the link, played with the tweaks and got all my mkvs working through WMP :) granted l dont use WMP much but generally when l do l dont want to mess up MPCs playlist when lm watching a random file, its been slightly annoying having to be careful not to mess with my playlist opening some files .

That methos does work well for WMP and it keeps things light.

In regards to to the SHark codec pack, I had used that in the past and it was very good. I too would recommedn it as a package.

For me, I make all my own videos as MKVs, and prefer just using a splitter and nothing more. But worst case scenario adding FFDshow.
But, thats simply because I like to keep things as light as possible. And often the codec packs have several things I would never need and are pointless having.
It also helps reduce any chance of conflicts. Sometimes, less is better. So thats the reason I suggest giving this route a shot.

But, at least you have some options now and experient a bit a see which method you like best.

If you do decide a complete package suits your needs better, do give Sharks pack a try at least.
But remember to un-install everything you currently have 1st before moving to something else or you'll have problems.

Glad things seem to be working for you now though. Has the freezing stopped?

with regards to the hangs lve been on about, l wont know until it happens again after a reboot as it seems to only happen after one on the first file l open.

l had the problem again, however while its random lm playing with a longshot here as lve read random reports of issues with spyware software.

l noticed that Windows Defender was running, and my current software (firewall/antivirus) normally disabled it when installing..

generally my problem has happened directly or shortly after booting into windows and lm wondering if both programs were trying to scan the same file on opening or something to that effect. so far after 2 reboots nothing has happened but lve only rebooted once with it turned off.
