WMP Stopped Showing .MKV files In Media Share DLNA Server

Post by Pir8pete on Tue Dec 04, 2018 10:04 am

OS Windows 7 x64

Installed the newest K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1455_Mega and no .mkv files are showing up in the Windows Media Player DLNA Server on the network.

I spent hours going over all my settings re-doing everything; re-installed WMP to set back to defaults also uninstalled the K-Lite Pack to start fresh with defaults too, nothing worked.

I searched around and found another great Windows codec pack from Shark007 ADVANCED_Codecs_v1083 and everything came back.

Code:
http://shark007.net/
Code:
https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/win7codecs.html


As a test I then uninstalled it and installed the K-Lite codec pack with the same results.   No  Mad

I have been using K-Lite since the early 2000's and never had this issue!?!?!  I'm going to try rolling back a few version to see where the break is.

I rolled back to a 2016 then a 2015 version with the same results.

I went back as far as early 2016 and this issue is still here.  Very odd because before I formatted and did a fresh install of windows 7 x64 the Windows Media Player DLNA Server worked fine, and I was using the second newest version as of this post.

I did notice when installing Shark007's codec pack it prompts if I'll be using it with the DLNA server to stream when i click the suggested options.

Anyways could someone look into this and see whats going on?

That other pack uses DivX Matroska Media Foundation splitter for that DLNA functionality.

K-Lite does not include that component because (1) it is a commercial codec, (2) it can give playback issues in WMP, and (3) there are better DLNA solutions available.

It is pretty easy to install it manually if you want to. Just copy DivXMFSource.dll and ACMWrapperDMO.dll and then register them using regsvr32.exe

Other free and good DLNA servers are for example Serviio, PS3MediaServer, and Plex.

I get that there are better DLNA servers I just wanted to use the windows built in, as it's already there.

Before formatting my HDD and installing a fresh copy of win7 a few days ago I never had an issue.  Also I have formatted many times in the past and reinstalled everything and it all worked just fine so I don't get why NOW it's not working?
My last system refresh was the beginning of 2016 and the only codec pack I ever installed was yours!

So your saying if I manually install those .dll's the DLNA server will work?  Again odd because I never had to do this before.

I made copies of both x64 and x86, 4 in total from Shark007's codec pack when installed.  I'll uninstalling his pack then installing yours again, and install these using the following .bat commands;

Windows 7 x64
Code:

echo BEGIN DRAG-AND-DROP %n1 REGISTRAR 64-BIT
move %1 C:\Windows\System32
regsvr32 "C:\Windows\System32\%nx1"
echo END BATCH FILE
pause

Windows 7 x86
Code:

echo BEGIN DRAG-AND-DROP %n1 REGISTRAR 32-BIT
move %1 C:\Windows\SysWOW64
regsvr32 "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\%nx1"
echo END BATCH FILE
pause

.dll and .bat files: (copy & paste)
Code:

The forum is on an external free host. The ads are controlled by them, unfortunately. It is on the todo list to create a new forum on own server.

I am not sure why it may have worked for you in the past. This functionality has always required a Media Foundation type codec (and not DirectShow ones as used by the pack). Just to be clear, these files are only for adding .mkv support. DLNA itself should work for all formats that are natively supported by Windows. So if it also stopped working for .mp4 files then something else must be wrong. Microsoft broke some things in WMP in last months update, so maybe that is related.

Also be aware that not all video formats are supported. H.264 should work, but newer formats like HEVC/x265 and VP9 not.

Maybe I should make a small installer for these files to make it easier. If you can confirm your manual installation makes it work again.
