Media Link Player and Transcoding

I have installed the DLNA v1.5 M-DMP compliant player from Alpha ( … ex_en.html) and I am testing against the Free Tversity version. Unfortunately, the player only supports H.264.

I have installed ffdshow (it was recommended during the installation of TVersity). I have two questions.

(1) When select DirectShow for Windows Media Encoding Windows Media Video 7, Windows Media Video 8, Windows Media Video 9, and Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3. With ffdshow installed, should I be seeing something else?

(2) Is buying Tversity Pro the only way to confirm this is working?
