    Audio Problem with Media Player Classic Home Cinema x64

    I just reformated from win7RC to win7Ultimate 64bit
    I used Media Player Classic Home Cinema to play .mkv files before, and now I installed the 64bit version of it, and the audio does not play in basically all .mkv files that I have. This is what my filters look like I'm not sure what other info I should post.

    All of my .mkv files play fine in VLC media player, so I'm wondering if I need some codecs or something to make them play in Home Cinema. Again, the video plays fine in Home Cinema, just the audio does not play at all, or something makes some weird sounds.

    I have not manually installed any codecs at all, I only have whatever was included with VLC media player being installed, and Media Player Classic Home Cinema being installed.

    I recommend installing Shark007's Win7 codecs both x86 and x64 versions and installing the latest version of MPC-HC. You can also get a recent version that is preconfigured by Shark to work with his codec packs on the "Tools" page of his above linked to site. However, I personally prefer my own settings on MPC-HC. (Btw, I'm a big fan of MPC-HC also, but I'm using the x86 version until CoreAVC Pro comes out with an x64 version of their video codec which I use for H.264 MP4 files. Fortunately, Sharks tools also support the Core filter.)

    Basically, for W7, with MPC-HC open, hit "o" which opens the options menu. Under output, I use EVR cust pres. Under internal filters, I have most things deselected.

    Then use Sharks settings tools (one each for x86 and x64) to select the video and audio filters you want to use for each file type or format. His settings tools make it very easy to play around with different settings till you find what works best for your particular hardware and software and file type in question.

    One tip: Since his settings tools need to be "run as administrator" to make most changes, I recommend right clicking on the .exe of his tools and using the compatibility tab to set those files to always run as administrator. That way you don't have to remember to run the app as administrator each time you start it up.

    The most likely reason you are not getting any sound is that you don't have an audio filter properly configured to work with the type of file in question. Again, Shark's settings tool makes this about as easy it can be to select various video and audio filters and splitters for use with the various file types.

    Another alternative is CCCP. They just released an updated version last September.

    CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack

    Works fine on me. I'm also using Win7 64-bit.

    I am not having any trouble playing MKV files on Windows 7. I am using K-Lite Codec Pack, full version, with Media Player Classic Home Cinema 1.2.1008.

    it seems the problem might be with the 64bit version of MPC-HCE. I Installed the K-Lite Codec pack and still no sound in MPC-HCE 64bit version. The I uninstalled both K-Lite a and MPC-HCE, and then reinstalled K-Lite Codec Pack, Mega Version, and had it install MPC-HCE with the pack, and now the audio works with everything

    I think that the version of MPC-HCE that it installed is just the 32 bit version, so maybe that was causing the problem. Either way thanks for the ideas
