I used to stream videos from my desktop to my PS3, which often required converting files such as mkv videos. I now use my TV as my computer monitor so lately I have been just watching my videos in Windows Media Player. I have been looking into getting a remote and receiver to make watching videos even easier, but they all seem to say they are optimized to work best with Windows Media Center.
So, I added my files to Windows Media Center, and they all show up in the library when I try to play mkv files it says that the file was not found. As I said, mkv files play perfectly fine in Windows Media Player.
How can I get my videos to play right in Windows Media Center, or is there a better way to set this up? I am using Windows 7 Professional x64.
If you have a wireless network and an Android phone I'd recommend using VLC and downloading an app called GMote.
Lets you use your phone as a remote on your PC. VLC is able to play pretty much every video file format too.
