need help with setting up DLNA streaming to TV :please:

hy there..

i want to stream movies from my pc (windows 8) to the TV via DLNA and i have some problems i did run into.

Normaly when im in the explorer and go to the movie file i right klick them and select "playTo" and the TV is listed..

But it doesnt work with mkv files, its just no "playto" button anymore..

i read that there where license issues or something thats why windows doesnt have it..

so my question would be, are there any workarounds for tis?
i was reading that renaming it to .avi would help but it doesnt work..

i also used and tested a lot of dlna server softwares but they had other problems, like not seeing more then 1 harddrive etc..

anyway, if someone knows if theres a trick to use so windows can playto with mkv files, i would love to hear it



we also tried this here:

Otherwise, if you want to manually do it:

Get a copy of ACMWrapperDMO.dll and DivXMFSource.dll version (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions).

Register the DLLs (regsvr32).

Add the Play To handler for .mkv files in the registry.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

but also didnt work, it showed up now for mkv files but didnt play them, some error or crashing the mediahandler?? AVI works fine by the way...

the source of this idea was herE:

As your link initially suggests, installing my software will work.
Uninstall LAV 1st, and then select the [x] SUGGESTED settings checkbox after installation.

Windows 8.1 , same problem
with Shark filter is ok (in settings -> Enable the Divx.com MF splitter)

Why crash if i register manually ACMWrapperDMO.dll and DivXMFSource.dll ?
it' not the same?
