[quote=“grinch247”]:mrgreen: IT FINALLY WORKS!!!
If you don’t have Flash for Firefox installed, install this first. No restart is necessary after this install, and YES it must be the Flash for Firefox.
Uninstall ALL codecs you have installed currently & Tversity. RESTART.
Install the CCCP. Restart
Install Tversity. UNCHECK the Tversity codec pack & Babylon things in the install. UNCHECK the “Start media server” and “Start Interface” at the end of the install. Do NOT start Tversity yet. RESTART
After the restart, everything should be kosher.
first of all, much appreciation… i can finally watch my "matroska" files. i kept trying your first post on this and it wouldnt work, then i slapped myself and decided to read further. i cleaned the hell out of my registery using auslogics registery cleaner, and after uninstalling all related software to this using the supplied uninstallers, i also manually deleted there leftovers in the program files folder. i do have a few problems now that i am this far, and would love your advice.
when attempting to play a mpeg-4 (under dimensions when i mouseover it says avc1, AAC) i get an "unsupported file" error, yet it plays just fine on the dektop that is serving all my stuff.
when i attempt to stream some of the rss feeds under "guide" i get "corrupt data".
i havent checked all of my flicks to see if the work, but so far so good execpt for the mpeg-4. any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. and thanks again i have been working on this for about 3 days now.[/quote]
Ironically, MKVs are a file container format; they have a video stream & audio stream in a "container"…little different than MP4, AVI, etc.
MKVs usually have an h.264 video stream & AAC, MP3 or DTS audio stream; if they have h.264 & AAC, they are essentially an MP4 with a different name… but the CCCP codecs won’t play them.
[color=#FF0000]What you’ll need to do is install Quicktime OR Quicktime Alternative (recommended, less bulky, no quicktime player just the codec).[/color]
You can install Quicktime from the Apple Quicktime site, or you can download Quicktime Alternative here: http://codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm
- STOP TVERSITY
- Install QT Alt/QT
- Restart your PC
edit Regarding the RSS feeds from “Guide” in Tversity: many of them are outdated; they haven’t changed at all for about a year or so, so I wouldn’t rely on them. Hulu.com has TONS of awesome stuff for free. Try that.
If you still have issues with RSS try setting the “folder” for the RSS feed (in Tversity Library) to “When Needed” for the transcode setting under the Advanced tab. You’ll need to Restart the Tversity server once you change the transcode settings.
