Choppy playback 1080p mkv file - Page 2

post #11 of 12
you want to be able to play those 1080p mkv files?

do a fresh install of xp or vista

install the newest build of ffdshow you can find

install haali media splitter

thats it

you install a codec pack or some other crap and you are going to muck up your performance

I messed around with that stuff for awhile, but it got embarassing when people came over to watch movies and funky stuff would happen to the video and audio.

Now i just install those 2 things and my .mkv files work perfect on my x2 4400 vista system

Download ffdshow tryouts from http://sourceforge.net/project/downl...se_mirror=kent

While installing, it will ask you which video codecs to decode. Make sure you find H.264/AVC in that list and change it to disabled.

Also, at the end of the installation, make sure to enable shell extensions and tray icons.

Now, install CoreAVC again and reboot.


Try playing the file in WMP. If that doesn't work, try Media Player Classic and Zoom Player. (in that order) (don't bother with VLC since it doesn't properly support soft subtitles, and MKVs tend to have those)

If it still doesn't work, play it in MPC, pause, resize it so it doesn't fill up your screen and take a screenshot of your entire screen.


That did it for me, and it play beautifully in regular WMP. Thanks a lot
