Is there a utility to manage what codecs or container (audio & video) that a program uses that is setup in a graphical form and allows you to select what is being used?

I am able to view just everything h.264, etc... using Window Media Player. It works great except sometimes it does not recognize the subtitle channel where VLC will recognize the sub but for some reason the audio is screwed up. PowerDVD Ultra will not play my h.264 stuff at all.

Why is it that some subtitle channels are hidden from WMP anyways?

Thanks!

I use media player classic and use the "external filters". I specifically add my desired filters in this window. The formats I don't want media player classic to use I uncheck from the filters menu.

Also download the full screen exclusive mode mod.

I realized that I had the slightest bit of videocard induced judder @72hz but now it's silky smooth, much smoother than the theatre experience.

btw cntl+c gets you out of the fullscreen mode.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for. But from your subject, I can suggest G-Spot for testing codecs, and Radlight Filter manager for editing or changing priorities of filters.
