Ive only recently started getting into the "HD" movies. Ive always been watching divx and isos with MediaPortal. I have a couple mkvs and a couple mp4s, none of which are playing within media portal. When i hit enter, the screen flashes, as if if attempted to play the file and failed, and returns to the same screen.
The files in question play absolutely fine in VLC player. In windows media player, i get sound but no video.... It seems like it could be a simple fix, but i cant figure this out. Is there a setting in one of the codec configs? Or am i missing a codec entirely?
Thanks for any help.
