    download latest catalyst
    download latest directx
    download this media player:

    http://downloads.guru3d.com/Media-Player-Classic-Home-Cinema-(GPU-accelerated)-download-2174.html

    then have a quick read of that article...tells u the settings to use in options

    i use 1080p/24fps on my tv too....gets rid of all "jittering" works with 720p too obviously.

    use the shader options suggested too....makes the image so much crisper than coreavc or VLC...new version or coreavc supports cuda, but thats no good to u anyway, + image quality wont be as good.

    This is best way ive found to play x264 in mkv container.

    If I am not mistaken, MKV is a container of AVI...so renaming the extension of the *.mkv file to *.avi, it should work...i think.

    you might want to use graphedit to convert MKV into whatever you want. It's also pretty handy if you want to get ride of the additionnal subtitles / audio within the container.

    The method consist in replacing the rendering scheme (ie video rendering and output to the screen) with a simple avimuxer plugin which in turn outputs to your hard drive, thus producing a full quality avi file.

    Graphedit has all the required plugins already embedded in it, it works immediately out of the box.

    Transcoding comes at a price though, i have seen a HQ MKV version of a "Ghost in the Shell" episode inflate from 130Mb to 450Mb....

    SO, you want to transform this mkv file :

    [​IMG]

    into this raw avi dump file:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, it's a pretty graphical environment, and consists merely in connecting the dots between them, that's about it...

    The example above show how we take both audio and videos streams after they are split by our Graphedit Directshow rendering engine, and how we recombine both in a simple avi file and save the result in a file.

    It takes no more than 30-40 seconds, depending on the strength of your hard drive / cpu, what's left for you to do is press the greenish play button to start the rendering and you're done !
