    Since last week I started using CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) because some .mkv files wouldn't play with MP.
    No problems since then.

    Can anyone recommend a good codec pack for all standard types AND mkv?
    I find CCCP to produce too much distortion with some of my divx-movies.

    all you need is ffdshow and Matroska Splitter. they work perfect for me when I play transformers in 1080p

    the ffdshow in CCCP is an older version

    So far sticking with the Vista Codec pack, as shark does a great job of keeping it upto date.

    This wasn't due to FFDSHOW it was due to you messing with the settings. Each decoder can be configured to 'SPDIF' instead of 'libavcodec' in the codecs list, and so long as you don't mess with anything in the 'Output' settings, all will be just fine.

    Using FFDSHOW audio for everything on my system.
