I've just installed Vista x64 and I'm a little confused on how to get ffdshow working (64bit version).

If I just install clsid's latest ffdshow x64 then it doesn't work. Even if I switch media player to 64-bit (eg. unregmp2.exe /SwapTo: 64, or something) then it still doesn't work.

Do I need to install this thing called "Vista x64 Codec Components" (or whatever it's called?). Really I want is ffdshow (64-bit) to work...

Also, does the Haali Media Splitter work? It doesn't seem to work at all in Vista x64.

Thanks for any help!

Well, a Codec is something that you install to use a certain type of video file, such as a codec is needed to play DVD's on your computer. I would try installing it, and see if it works then.

Haali seems to be a virus from what i know about it. Stay away from that...

Hi sofakng, welcome to the board.

Sorry I can't give you an absolute answer but here is an excellent link with great instructions. I don't think it will hurt to give it a try.

Hope this will help.

The only x64 codecs you'll ever need or use, are available here: Vista Codec Package Homepage (VCP).

I've been using them for nearly 2 years now, and have yet to encounter a video that would not play.
