We use our Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit PC as a Media PC.
If it matters, it is the Asus EB1501. A little slow, but it works.
In an effort to get .MKV files to play, I installed Shark007's codec pack. The .MKV files play now.
I got my hands on a few good .AVI files yesterday, and we were going to watch those. Microsoft shows >> HERE << that .AVI files are supported, so my guess is something in Shark007's pack changed something that was working before.
I really hate having to constantly fight these codecs, especially on something that is supposed to be a HTPC where the mouse and keyboard are never touched and Media Center is running 100% of the time.
Does anyone know of a good solution?
