Can someone please tell me how to get WMP11 or Vista WMC to recognize mkv files or any other file types? I have done the mkv type registry hack and the latest codecs (ffdshow and Matroska) and I when I add folders with mkv files they never get picked up in the search. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
This should work ( thanks to idbirch2 for the showing me how to do this with .ts files)
"Ah sorry, I didn't realise your recording device was like that. You could try the 'perceived type' regfix by pasting the following into notepad and saving as "anything.reg"
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Double click the reg file and agree to the warning, if you are running Vista on a PC, this should get them to show up."
Then get this Download version 188.8.131.52 (2k/xp/2k3 only) and install
Open the mkv with windows media player first just in case and get it try and open file even if it says it doesnt recognise extension.
All my mkv's show up in vista mce, but not all of them played
For the ones that didnt work i used this
and got rid of the other language and subtitles and they worked fine
