i've never had a problem playing wmv files in media center before. after some research, i started understanding a bit more about the difference between 32 and 64 bit, in terms of video, but some of it is still confusing.
i *think* the reason they aren't playing is because, originally, on my old XP system, the videos were mostly avi format, which i then used a converter (like magic video converter) to make wmv so that i could watch them in media center. i also used video editors to cut out commercials. so i think converting them using the 32 bit software made it so that the files can only be read by 32 bit media centers. i could be totally wrong but that's my newbie guess. i can still watch them using VLC but i like the convenience of my media center and it's been a pain having entire video folders that i can no longer watch because of this issue.
any help is appreciated! for what it's worth, i've already tried both klite's codecs (the 64bit version) and the 'Shark007' codecs available on softpedia and so far nether have worked. being a newbie, i could just be doing something wrong. Has anyone else had this problem with wmv videos not playing?
