Configuring preferred DVD decoder/codec under Windows Vista (WMP/WMC) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys


    Thanks to a member of doom9 (ranpha), I am now able to use Microsoft’s superb MPEG-2 decoder with CyberLink’s audio decoder using MPC-HC (x86).

    http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=141051


    Now that I have a ground to stand on, I am free to explore better alternatives. By that I meant using WMP11 instead of MPC-HC.


    Under WinXP, we had the option of choosing which codes we preferred for decoding DVDs using WMP.

    In Vista, there isn't seems to be any option, at least not to my knowledge anyway.



    So is there a way of manually selecting the preferred decoder by any means necessary?


    I would prefer Microsoft’s video decoder as the primary MPEG-2 decoder, and Cyberlink’s audio decoder as the primary DD and DTS decoder.



    Thanks for reading ^-^
