New to this list and Im admitting upfront that Ive been struggling for
about a month sorting out mkv playback on Media Center. Having said that,
Im not a computer neophyte Im a VB/SQL programmer but LOL! - that
makes it all the more frustrating! Of course I will be very appreciative
about any help but I believe my background will allow me get things sorted
out quickly I just need some knowledgeable direction...
Anyway, I believe Ive tried 3 of 4 ways of getting this done using posted
solutions that have worked for some folks, but obviously not working for me.
First off, I can playback .mkv files in WMP11 but not MC. MC gives me the
Cannot Play Video
Windows Media Center cannot open the file.
I have a brand new HTPC system that I built and installed Vista Ultimate
64-bit. Im willing to reinstall Vista yet again (already done it twice!)
Im comfortable using RegEdit and Ive been currently using GraphEdit
<http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms787460.aspx> and Filmerit
<http://paul.glagla.free.fr/filmerit_en.htm> to troubleshoot problems. I
have the latest CCCP package and a number of other CODEC packages although
Ive uninstalled all of them at this point. Right now, the CCCP Community
CODEC Pack 2 is the only thing installed but I believe it has the ffdshow
rev 1324 as part of its payload.
Ive also run the Matroksa Diagnostic software on a MKV file...
The Directshow rendering shows a few failed items specifically:
62> Failed connecting pin to DirectVobSub (auto-loading version), removing
265> Failed connecting pin to DirectVobSub (auto-loading version), removing
Everything else described as OK
Filmerit shows 0 errors amongst 164 filters...
GraphEdit shows an .mkv render graph as follows:
Movie.mkv - Video à ffdshow Video Decoder input à Video Renderer VMR
Movie.mkv - Audio à ffdshow Audio Decoder input à Default Direct Sound
Device Audio Input pin (rendered)
Thats about all the information I can think of that might help, but if
anyone needs something else, Id be happy to get what you need...
