    h.264 Video Codec: CoreAvc

    Hallo!
    I really need help on this one.

    OK...i have for a loooong time have problem with MP not using my coreAvc codec when playing MKV videofiles, even if it says so in the configuration. Insted it uses FFDshow to decode.
    I have always thought this was a problem with my MP install after multiple SVN installations.
    SO last week i did a clean install and everything worked as it should and MP used coreavc without problems. But now i installed SP1 (vista) and after this upgrade i have the same problem again. I can play MKV without problems in Media player classic and coreavc is used.

    I attach some logs where i startplaying a MKV file and FFDShow is used instead of CoreAvc.

    Hi mirk

    If you have disabled in FFDShow Video config\codecs h.264, then CoreAVC should be used for all h.264\VC1 files.

    MP4's\AVI's are different, so these will use FFDShow, because CoreAVC does not support them, use gspot to check the actual codec needed, or drop into mkvmerge and it will show the format also.

    Remember mkv is just a container, so there can be any format inside.

    I have already disable h.264 in FFDShow, but the it is used by MP anyway.
    The ony change between when MP used coreavc and when it dont is that i updated to Sp1, witch make me believe something is handled differently in MP when SP1 is available.

    I'm on Vista as well and certainly do not see the issue, can you run filmerit (link in sig) and see if you have any errors.

    Currently have 4 codecs installed that are capable of decoding h.264, FFDShow (h.264 disabled), CoreAVC, MPC-HC, PDVD8, each one works if I select it under Video, just for you going to re-enable the ffdshow and see if it over rides MP settings :)

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...

    Hi @azzuro, I don’t know what was wrong with loading onto my new HTPC. After many days of trying to get MePo to work, I’m afraid I gave up and jumped ship to Kodi - which worked first time without problems. After 10 years with Mediaportal, it was a huge shame to leave but I couldn’t get it to work at all with my new PC with integrated...
