Encoded AVI files in Media Center

Hi Guys,

Been using Vista now for quite a while but having problems getting Media Center to play some media files. I have a few avi files encoded using xvid which play just fine in Windows Media Player however if I try and play them using Media Center it just tells me that I don't have the correct codec installed. Do I need some special media center codec, or do I need to do something to make Media Center use the xvid codec? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Get the FFDShow Codec from Sourceforge. I can play everything in media center with it..

i got ffdshow to run mkv files in windows media player. that worked but still cant run avi or mkv in windows media center. i turned the merit up on the configuration. am i missing something?
