Launch "Snipping tool" (Start > Accessories), draw a rectangle and save it (the default folder is "Pictures"). Post the saved PNG file as an attachment of a post.

Suppose I'll grab fastone real quick and do it that way. That dang program used to be free but now the version that I've had on my PC for a year says the 30-day trial period has expired is asking for money. Never been on my HTPC so I can get it for 30-days on there. Kind of off-topic but is there any suggested spy-ware free capture freeware I can use?

For now Snipping Tool is enough and free (and spyware-free of course).

Right. I understand. Snipit is just clunky.

Here it is for RED (0000.m2ts).

This graph is created by drag and drop 00000.m2ts file on GraphStudio, right? This tells nothing about WMC. I would like to see the filter graph at video playback by WMC internal player (that's the reason why I mentioned "Using GraphStudio").

BTW your Windows is 64 bit, then you have to use graphstudio64.exe and the 64-bit versions of proppage.dll and DirectShowSpy.dll because WMC is a 64-bit player.

BTW playing back M2TS file in WMC/WMP may not work as it should. For example, if a M2TS files contains a DTS or DTS-HD audio track as primary, then Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder is always used however high LAV Audio Decoder's merit value is (and if you disable Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder, then live TV may be broken). That's one reason why M2TS should be avoided (why M2TS is special for WMC). MKV is trouble-free.

Okay, it is doing the same thing with mkv's too. Not ready to do a registry hack right now because I am trying to get the trim on my house painted today...

And it doesn't play MPLS and BDMV at all, for some reason those are completely blacklisted.

IMHO, thats a whole bunch of reasons why WMC itself should be avoided. Combined with Media Browser, its a neat UI, but the player is sadly just crap.

WMC for tv and MPC launched as an external player for mkvs? I think if you are trying to use LAV with madvr this is your best bet.

Imo WMC is great for tv and nothing else is as good.

Okay. So it don't work so great within WMC for mkv's? The video is there, just no audio. With the Shark007 I can get it to work but the PQ for Live TV is not the best.

Again I would like see your filter graph. I haven't seen any problem in bitstreaming HD audio from MKV with WMC internal player + LA Spiltter + LAV audio Decoder.

When you play MKV (and M2TS too) with WMC internal player, you normally lose:

- subtitles
- chapter selection (M2TS does not support chapter anyway)
- audio/subtitle stream selection

A workaround is use ffdshow Video Decoder (for subtitles) along with Media Control (for chapter/audio/subtitle stream selection by keyboard or remote). In my experience the latter is not so stable.

Unlikely. You cannot just "add support", its basically a new splitter, and alot of work for no real gain for me.

I was not able to do this last night because, you know, the house needed to be painted. I worked on that until sunset; it still isn't done and was too tired to do much else. So much about the rest of my life. Anyhow I am having a cup of coffee and registering those files this morning.

I already have regsvr32.exe in the System32 folder. Do I need a new copy with the "admin" in the name or can I just use the original one?

Please follow my instruction. Don't change the procedure (unless you know what you are doing very well). Every single step has a meaning.

Okay so you use the method at the top of the post to register the dlls for graph studio to run during WMC playback then. Okay.

The attached thumbs have the files that I downloaded. The win32 one doesn't seem quite right:

OK, I wasnt as specific as I should have been.

Here is my nirvana - is it possible? I am a strong believer in KISS (as simple as possible):

Bitstream from mkv (only - I never play anything else), on my 1155 Intel ITX with G620 CPU, out through HDMI, to my Onkyo 705. Audio could be flac, ac3, dts, dts-ma, or truehd. Video is *always* x264. Player is *always* MediaPortal. OS is Win7SP1.

Would like to use a single Audio Decoder (lavf?), and a single Video Decoder (I like MPC standalone filters or CoreAVC). Willing to switch to something else if it is simple.

Recommendations?

Thank you all -

Joe

Let me add that I have had excellent luck with Haali mkv, but would be willing to switch if the simplicity requirement is met

Anything difficult?

- Source/Splitter filter: LAV Souce Splitter, simply the best splitter for MKV (just install LAVFilters-0.28.exe)
- H.264 Video decoder: Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder (heavy block noise with Intel HD Graphics + MPC Video Decoder; any particular reason to use CoreAVC for Intel?)
- Video Renderer: EVR
- Audio decoder: LAV Audio Decoder (included LAVFilters-0.28.exe)
- Audio renderer: ReClock

I actually manage to get LAV working w/o doing anything but un-instal and re-instal.

If its simple, the chances of it breaking are greatly reduced IMO :-)

Few followups please:
- Why reclock? Can this be dropped with little change?
- Im surprised the MS DTV-DVD is being used: I have had bad luck with it in the past. Things like lots of dropped frames etc. Thats why Ive always used CoreAVC and/or MPC video.

Thank you so much Rene - you rock! :-)

You can just drop ReClock if you don't want it, for many people the default Audio renderer is fine, as well.

- The main purpose of ReClock is WASAPI exclusive mode that avoids modification of audio streams by Window Audio Engine (no resampling, no channel count change for LPCM).
- Zero dropped frame with Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder whatever video file format is (L5.1 16 Reframe etc.). If you try MPC Video Decoder with Intel HD Graphics, you will immediately notice frequent block noises.

I'm not sure if this is the way I am muxing into an mkv file, but it appears that using lavf/MediaPortal ignores the default track flag?

for example, I have the following movie.mkv with 264 video, a TrueHD track marked as default audio track, and a secondary commentary audio track.

The movie always starts with the secondary audio track, and I have to manually select the correct track.

This doesnt seem to happen in MPC-HC (ie, it selects the primary audio track), but MP is much better IMO for home theater usage.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any help -


C:\\Users\\Temp\\Desktop\\TryMKV>"C:\\Program Files\\MKVToolNix\\mkvmerge.exe" -I Movie
.mkv
File 'Movie.mkv': container: Matroska [duration:5871040000000]
