For solutions to specific playback problems that you MAY encounter . . . Continue reading . . .

DO YOU NEED SUPPORT for deprecated Shark007 releases . . .
The instillation is somehow, broken. To manually uninstall, Copy / Paste the following line to Explorer address bar and press Enter
for the ADVANCED Codecs
msiexec.exe /uninstall {8C0CAA7A-3272-4991-A808-2C7559DE3409}
for the STANDARD Codecs
msiexec.exe /uninstall {898E81AD-6DB9-4750-866B-B8958C5DC7AA}
If the error is coming from the x64 Codecs, browse to the installation folder, C:\Program Files\Shark007
and execute the uninstaller manually; unins000.exe
The above uninstall suggestions are not for general use because they bypass the comprehensive cleanup routines built into the Applications.


3GP files have no audio?  disable the DMO codecs on the SWAP TAB
be aware that disabling the DMO Codecs can remove the 'Play To' feature from filetypes such as AVI


To playback MKV's with subtitles in the Windows Media Player,
press [Reset All] and then select the [x] WMP suggested settings checkbox.
Then go to the filetype specific tab and choose to disable Media Foundation for that filetype
Some of these filetypes options are also found on the Swap TAB.
       


If an MP4 file fails to play properly with (subtitles - audio?) or any other issue.
using the ADVANCED Codecs, choose to [x] Disable Media Foundation for MP4 on the MPG~MP4 TAB
using the STANDARD Codecs, choose to [x] Disable Media Foundation for MP4 on the SWAP TAB

If MP4 problems persist after trying the above solution,
it is also helpful to disable the Microsoft Video and/or Audio decoder(s) on the SWAP TAB


To access Subtitle controls, while a video is playing, right click either the green VobSub systray icon.
To completely disable Subtitles, make that selection in the upper right of the Config TAB.


To access multiple Audio tracks (AVI files), you must 1st set LAV as the splitter for that filetype.
Then rightclick the LAV Splitter (whitish) systray icon during playback to select your preferred audio track.


For improved AVI playback, choose to [x] Disable Media Foundation for AVI on the AVI TAB


The MOV format uses a wide range of deprecated codecs.
If MOV playback fails you, the 1st thing to try is using the [Reset All] button. Test.
If you are still having trouble with a MOV file, try a different splitter from the MOV&nbsp; TAB
Also on the MOV or Swap TAB, you can choose to [x] disable Media Foundation for MOV
Still a problem?, get Metafox from my Tools page and use it to create an MKV from that MOV file


On the Swap TAB, you can choose to [x] disable Media Foundation for M2TS or TS
As a last resort, you may need to disable Media Foundation on the SWAP TAB for proper M2TS playback.
If any TS derivatives such as M2TS, MTS have no audio, Disable the Microsoft Audio and/or Video decoder on the SWAP TAB
If you are still having trouble with a TS file, disable the Microsoft Video decoder on the Swap TAB also.
A better solution would be to use Metafox, downloaded from my Tools page to create an MKV from the original file.

To access Subtitle controls, while a video is playing, right click either the green VobSub systray icon.
To completely disable Subtitles, make that selection in the upper right of the Config TAB.
If you have difficulty with subtitle display (pgs in mkv), try changing the splitter from LAV to BE's splitter on the appropriate tab that corresponds to the filetype.

Low Volume?  Here's the fix.
near the clock, rightclick the speaker icon and choose, playback devices
highlight your active device and click [Properties]
select the Enhancements TAB
check the box for [x] Loudness Equalization
Apply / OK

To bitstream HD audio formats...
1. Set a proper speaker count in Control Panel | Sound, under your active device.
1a. Set 2 speakers if your intent is to have the AVR decode the audio stream. (bitstreaming)
2. On the Audio TAB of the Settings Application, select the proper output in the upper right. (hdmi, spdif, anolog)
3. For anolog connections, my software detects the speaker settings from Control Panel and uses them.
4. For digital connections (hdmi/spdif), Same as Input is the correct setting for the speaker setting on the Audio TAB
   

If you are having any other Audio issues not covered above, disable the Microsoft Audio decoder on the SWAP TAB.

To convert multi-channel (5.1) AAC audio to AC3 on the fly and bitstream the result, just choose to enable AC3Filter on the Config TAB and it will work!


And lastly, if you have an unsolved issue, register on these forums and make a post asking for assistance.
If you have disabled UAC; please know that you have creating your own issues that I cannot assist you with.
I usually respond within the hour.

DO NOT attempt to respond to this posting - it is locked. Start a new post in the forum area.


These instructions are revised as I deem necessary. Development is an ongoing process.
