Thanks for the guide, only a small problem, If the MKV has chapter the win7 MC player crash! Any solution? vasmaover 2 years ago
Please note the bat file contained in the 64 registration pack might be wrong for your setup. regsrv64.exe does not exist in certain OS. I had to edit the file replacing 64 with 32 in both lines before it would work.

Thanks for this write up.. it’s helped me resolve a few niggling issues I’ve been having with my set up.
However I have had to change a few things when installing and configuring on a Win7 x64 machine.
Disabling the Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder via the Tweaker Tool broke live TV for me. I left that Enabled and everything is working fine. So not sure exactly how important that step is.
I’ve also turned off all post processing on the Video Decoder as quite frankly every tweak seems to make the picture worse for almost every file type.
I had a issue with certain MKV files failing to play in Media Browser. Whenever I tried to play them I would get a message telling me Media Browser was unable to find the file or codec. After a bit of detective work I found out this was caused by the audio sample rate of the files, it appears that FFDShow Audio does not support PassThrough for any Audio Stream under 48Khz.
In Resample set In “Resample to” put “48000”, in “Mode” select “libsamplerate sinc high quality” and check “Resample always” – and this problem went away and all of my audio sources were correctly passed through as 5.1 Dolby Digital.
I was not able to select ffmpeg-mt as a H.264 decoder in the Video Decoder but the default seems to work well enough so didn’t lose any sleep over it.

Nice effort but this is now outdated as all of the screenshots are different from my installer. Furthermore I still cannot playback MKV files and VIDEO_TS/VOB files. Also it is unclear if I have Windows 7 x64 can I just use the x64 installer or must I install both 32-bit and 64-bit and configure each one as per guide? Berndover 1 year ago
Install them both – run Media Browser in a window.. play a movie and watch for FFDShow in the bottom right corner of the tool bar. Once it pops up double click and yu’ll see what version of FFDShow is being used. cow666over 1 year ago
Providing you have uninstalled every other splitter and codec pack- installing the MP4Splitter and MatroskaSplitter stand alone splitters will enable MKV playback. cow666over 1 year ago
