Windows 10 explorer doesn`t shows audio tracks from mkv files

Post by theduly on Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:06 am

Hi since i have upgraded to windows 10 in the explorer the audio tracks of my video files arent shown anymore. I have installed the newest codec pack and updates too. On my other system with windows 8.1 is everything fine.

On Windows 7 and 8.1 the codec pack uses the Icaros PropertyHandler for displaying MKV details in Explorer. Windows 10 has native support for MKV, so it currently uses Microsoft's own propertyhandler. Next version of the pack will probably use Icaros for MKV on Windows 10 as well, since it offers more details.

Hi,
explorer shows MKV bitrate always at 0kbps. Does next Icaros fix this?

Such videos have variable bitrate. A future version of icaros will calculate (an estimate) of the average bitrate based on duration and filesize.

All MKV movies have variable bitrate. With Windows 8.1 no problem, explorer shows bitrate.
Thanks.

It works fine here on Win10. You need to do a clean install of 11.3.6, otherwise the standard propertyhandler of Windows will be used.

Thank you very much! Now it works fine! Maybe I done a clean install of previous version.
Video tracks, Contains chapters, Audio tracks and Subtitle track items are only in english. Is it possible to translate in other languages (I'm italian)?

I think translations will come in a future Icaros version.

AVI files are currently handled by Windows itself.

Can you check the following Registry key?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\SystemPropertyHandlers
Does it contain an ".mkv" value?

Yes. Do I delete this item?

Right-click on the key to adjust the security permissions. Click Advanced button. On the Owner tab, change it to Administrators. Click OK to close the window. Then select Administrators and set Full Control to Allow.

Then you should be able to delete the item. You may need to restart and re-install the pack too.

This problem only seems to exist on systems that were upgraded from an older version of Windows. The developer of Icaros is investigating it.

I deleted key, then I uninstalled pack, I rebooted pc and i reinstalled pack.
I see video bitrate but Video/Audio tracks and Contains chapters are missing.

EDIT: maybe I found: must I change HKCR\SystemFileAssociations\.mkv\PreviewDetails key? Value contains all items shown in File Explorer.

EDIT2: in my first pc, total bitrate item was missing. Ok, I added *System.Video.TotalBitrate value at the end of PreviewDetails key and now I can see total bitrate info!
In my second pc, Icaros items are missing...I think I have to add Icaros items (video/audio traks and chapters)...but lot easier: I export .reg key from my first pc and add this in my second pc!

Please advise Icaros programmer of these issues.

On my laptop the Icaros items were also missing after updating to Windows 10. A clean install of the codec pack fixed it. I will forward the bitrate suggestion.

A clean install fixed issue on my first pc and not on my second pc. I fixed second pc using this reg:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.mkv]
"PreviewDetails"="prop:*System.Media.Duration;*System.Size;*System.Video.FrameWidth;*System.Video.FrameHeight;
*Icaros.VideoTracks;*Icaros.AudioTracks;*Icaros.SubtitleTracks;*Icaros.ContentCompression;*Icaros.ContainsChapters;
*System.OfflineAvailability;*System.OfflineStatus;*System.DateModified;*System.DateCreated;*System.SharedWith;
*System.Video.TotalBitrate"

I manually added "*System.Video.TotalBitrate" last item and now I can see total bitrate in right details panel of File Explorer. This item is not added by install pack.
I hope this will help others.

TotalBitrate will be added in next version of Icaros. The other entries were present after the re-install, or not?

TotalBitrate ok in next version. After clean install on my first pc, Icaros entries are added. On my second pc, not. I manually added these.

Also "*System.Video.FrameRate" is missing. I manually added this before "*System.Video.TotalBitrate" item but now I can't reboot pc to try. I think this will allow to show framerate of MKV video in right detail panel of File Explorer. If this works fine, please advise Icaros programmer to add "*System.Video.FrameRate;*System.Video.TotalBitrate" string to the end of "PreviewDetails" key.
Thanks.

EDIT: ok, this works fine!

It already contains System.Video.FrameRate here.

The developer of Icaros has found and fixed a bug which caused the missing items on updated Windows installs in some cases. So that issue should be gone in next version. TotalBitrate has also been added Wink
