    Well, I've been using MPC (Media Player Classic) to watch my MKV anime episodes for quite a while now. I had no problem with them. But recently its been getting kind of buggy. I watch videos and they lag alot and the audio desyncs sometimes. I'm quite sure it isn't the videos because its done this with 3 different videos I've tried. I even uninstalled codecs, reinstalled and restarted my computer but it still lags a bit sometimes. Anyway I can fix this problem? Any other MKV Players I can use that won't lag? Thanks for any help.

    google ---> cccp

    use that codec pack and either the zoom player or the media player classic that follows with that pack...

    thats what I use, even tough i hate MKV files, it works 100 % on theme as long as you dont "jump" forward or backwards in a episode...

    Try using CoreAVC. It's not free, but it's certainly faster than most other decoders.

    CoreAVC manages to decode 720p perfectly on my crappy p4.
    CCCP isn't as efficient but its the next best thing.
    Obviously this does mean that there is either something wrong on your PC (try running CCleaner) or your CPU is outdated.

    I installed CCCP but there isn't any improvements. I used the CCleaner and I deleted some stuff but nothing has changed..and is CoreAVC free?

    I'm sure you could always find a copy for free somewhere, though.

    Although it is its own OS could check out geexbox. I was able to run 1080p on a P3 with no real problem. 720p played flawless for me. I recommend it to anyone who is using a computer for a Media PC. Although you can only run Audio and Video and pictures it is still pretty nice.



    I must also note with geexbox that it runs off a CD or a Hard drive up to you. You can then take out the disk and put in your video disk in or play it right off a hard drive be it internal or external. The Iso for the OS is like 18 megs. (Almost double the size of the old version I think.) Also an ISO generator to put in your own plugins or take out things you do not wish to use. Can use your own backgrounds. And if you have a media remote you can use it with it.

    ok I think CoreAVC fixed it for me. Now I just need to get the text to appear and I'm good. XD

    MKV by itself should not be a problem (it is like AVI), the video format being decoded is what will. Anime and MKV however often means H264 video which taxes most systems.

    A few things:
    H264 has post processing in the spec, make sure the additional stuff (which I suggest for xvid) is not on or slowdowns will occur. Likewise you can often disable additional processing if you really want (not suggested by me).
    Chances are you have FFDshow installed (most packs and definitely CCCP) which will have it on.

    You already were recommended coreavc and it is good. Be careful if getting it by less than legit means as I have seen a lot of malware spread by such a thing.


    You mention text/subtitles, anime is tricky and many groups use stuff like ASS (advanced substation alpha) as opposed to the bog standard SRT and vobsub (idx and sub files) which everything plays.
    I suggest CCCP here rather than tangling with a manual setup as the people doing it know what goes but make sure to uncheck the H264 stuff when installing it again or you will have just rendered your coreavc install pointless. If you do double click on the FF icon with black text that appears in your system tray (the video one) and disable it from there.
    Also some installs can check pre buffering, it is not usually necessary so double click the green arrow in the system tray and under the misc tab is the option to disable it.
    Also something like geexbox, XBMC and the like (linux media distributions) will also do well and in most cases you can run them from a livecd.
