mobile.HD Video Player : Now you can play mkv and other popular video format on Surface/RT/Windows 8 computer.

Price is $2.49 with free trial...the developers said more improvements and features will be added soon.

Haven't try yet...but 356 MB for video player is kind of ridiculous...

The lack of dts audio support prevents this from being usable at the moment. I'm using Pressplay Video on my Surface instead as it includes full support for mkvs.

PressPlay's MKV playback has been pretty buggy for me. Conversion and seek times are slow, the framerate of converted videos is jumpy, the audio is way out of sync, and more often than not the app will simply crash after fast forwarding for a couple seconds.

I'm still relying on the desktop MPC-HC for MKV, FLV, etc.

New app : Yxplayer - can play almost any format of video including avi/mkv/etc...also supports subtitles

However, the interface is a bit ugly and it costs $4.49 and only support x86/x64...not yet ARM compatibilities

Update : PressPlay : support mkv and subtitle

thanks jakem for pointing it out

What's the difference between Mobile.HD Media Player and PressPlay? I rather go with a free solution if it does what I need.

For non-RT Windows 8 PCs, VLC still works (it's still my MKV format player of choice).

Have they started on the winrt version of vlc yet? I know they got all the kick starter money they needed iirc. Also how about a mpc-hc winrt version? He'll if it works and plays all the formats I have then I wouldn't mind paying a small fee to get the app, say, $5 tops.

      HI,

      Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT)  Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.

      The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
      It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
      After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.

      While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.

      Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
      Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?

      cheers!

      Hi All,
       
      I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
       
      I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
       
      Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

      Do you use the Libraries feature introduced in Windows 7 and / or the Saved Search (otherwise known as Virtual Folder) feature introduced in Windows Vista? If so, do you have a preference for either feature?

      While I like both features I, as you probably expected, prefer the Saved Search feature. Both Libraries and Saved Searches consolidate content from multiple locations in a single view, and both allow users to customize their viewing experience based on the content displayed. Libraries, however, only allow users to display content based on folder locations (e.g., they cannot reference content based solely on dates, file attributes, et cetera), and users must manually add folders to a library before their content will appear.

      In contrast, Saved Searches can reference multiple locations simultaneously—or an individual folder(s) if that is what a user desires—based on a user's criteria such as specific names, dates, metadata, types, and words or phrases within files themselves. Also unlike Libraries, users can refine their Saved Search results with Boolean operators, natural language search (in Windows Vista and Windows 7), query composition, and / or the options offered by the column headers in File Explorer.

      I don't know what to do. It is driving me crazy. None of the solutions suggested have work. I turned off the adaptive brightness feature in the advanced settings and I also disabled the sensor in the msconfig and it still lower the brightness to almost not visible. I have a Sony Vaio that came with windows 8 and upgraded to 10. It does it with both versions.
