My understanding of the technical aspects associated with Video files is very basic. Our company developed a Thick-client software product for the commercial market that would allow users to view sports statistics. One of the components of our software product is a Media Player component that uses Windows Media Player.
When a user clicks on the Media Player component of our Software Product, he/she should be able to view sports videos.
The Media Player component can play videos within the MPEG-4 container and that use the H.264 codec.
However, we send the user videos within the Matroska (MKV) container and the H.264 video stream. Our Media component fails to play videos within the Matroska (MKV) container and the H.264 video stream because a standard Microsoft Windows Media Player for a regular Windows 7 installation will fail play videos within the Matroska (MKV) container and the H.264 video stream.
Therefore, we thought we would send our users another executable that the users can click in order to install files that would enable their Microsoft Windows Media Player to play Matroska (MKV) video.
Is there an executable on the web that will resolve the aforementioned problems? If yes, where can we get it?
