    i'm looking for a place to get this codec. can someone help me out? every site i go to "if" they offer the codec it's only for trial period only. will this codec be offered in upcoming kcp's? i guess another name for this codec is, "Mpegable AVC 0.10". i even got to the page to get this and once i got to the page it was pretty much blank. nothing was linked or provided. does anyone have a link for this codec? more and more files are coming out that require this and as of now i can't watch them. thank you for any information!

    i've figured it out. so, if someone who didn't know how to do this needs to know.... here u go.

    Step 1. AVC decoder - FFDShow

    ffdshow link: http://m17n.cool.ne.jp/freeware/mpc/

    [step 2-4 install kcp]

    Step 2. CoreAAC & AC3Filter (optional, but recommended for AC3 playback)

    Step 3. Media Player Classic (MPC)

    Step 4. Matroska Splitter - Haali Splitter - It is required for proper mkv playback.

    Setting Up FFDShow for proper AVC decoding

    After installing ffdshow, go to start - programs - ffdshow - video decoder configuration.

    At the top you will see a tab labeled "codecs". Click on that then on the right side of the window you will see H.264 make sure libavcodec is selected and then hit apply; now ffdshow will decode all AVC codecs

    Then on the left side of window scroll all the way down to reveal the OUTPUT tab.

    Make sure Use Overlay Mixer is checked.

    Anamorphic encodes:

    Media Player Classic with FFDShow set View -> Video frame -> Override aspect ratio-> 16:9.

    Actually, you don't need Haali's matroska splitter to play avc encodes. You only need media player classic (mpc) version 6.4.8.4, which has an internal splitter that handles avc encodes, and not only that, but can play partial mkv files (avc or otherwise), which haali's does not allow. This lets you test a partial file to see if the quality is good or if it's what you want.
