Microsoft DTV DVD Video Decoder

If you want to watch HD video in this case it is necessary to install codecs that are able to decode FullHD video. The most popular HD codecs are MPC video decoder, coreavc, ffdshow and Microsoft DTV-DVD.

As concerns Microsoft DTV-DVD video decoder, it is worth mentioning that it is supplied with Windows Seven. The DTV-DVD decoder supports all modern formats, and hard-ware based video acceleration. However while creating media centre at your home and while using several devices you may be faced with problems that are connected with MKV files reproduction in HD quality. You may have problems with video playing that explains lower speed of image display and sound. After some investigations by the means of GraphEdit it was cleared up what kind of codecs were operating. And it became clear that Microsoft DTV/DVD decoder caused the problem of video playing. No doubt that Microsoft DTV/DVD decoder reproduced files correctly; however it was ineffective for files reproduction on old computes. So these CPU are not powerful enough to play the files.

Therefore replacing of Microsoft codecs in Microsoft 7 requires the changing of registry entries:
First go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft DirectShow  Preferred;
Then right-click “Preferred” and choose the point “Permissions’;
Select “Advanced” and navigate to the “Owner“. Choose ‘Administrators‘ and next “Replace Owner on subcontainers and objects” checkbox and click OK;
Return to the first window and select “Administrators” check ‘Full Control’ and click OK. This will help you to make changes in registry entries;
In the left part of the page find {e06d8026-db46-11cf-b4d1-00805f6cbbea} {31435641-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}. Click these entries twice and then replace the data entry from CLSID codec by that codec you would like to use. Enter RadLight or Graphstudio. You can also one of these common identifiers:
1. FFDShow – {04FE9017-F873-410E-871E-AB91661A4EF7}
2. MPCVideoDecoder – {008BAC12-FBAF-497B-9670-BC6F6FBAE2C4}
