playing mpegs on the surface table RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our company does record HD movies, they are in mpeg format , but microsoft surface wont play them in user mode, with k lite codec pack it does play them in admin mode but we need it to work in user mode , in the photos application

    The bottomline is : can you play mpeg mov on a surface table in user mode?

  • Out of curiosity, are you using an N or KN version of Vista that does not have Media Player installed?  I think the WPF MediaElement object should be able to play MPEGs assuming Media Player is installed.

  • Both modes have media player installed, when i log in as admin and i install K-lite , then it appears in user mode but i still cannot play in user mode, but i can in administrator mode!

  • Is there anything in the EventLog that might indicate why it doesn’t?
     
    I’ve used the K lite codecs before without a problem.
