Transfer codec pack

Post by willyvds » Sat Nov 30, 2019 2:43 pm

On my old pc, I can view media files in .mkv format with subtitles.
If I play these exact same files (from a network drive) with MM on my new pc, MM cannot display the subtitles.

I get an error message saying that I should download a suitable codec pack. Obviously, I have downloaded and installed the codec pack from the MM add on site.
But this does not solve the problem.

It seems I have a codec pack on my old pc which does the trick. I wonder if I can somehow identify and then transfer this codec pack to the new pc?

Or are there any other options I could try?

A general codec pack like K-Lite Codec Pack will do the trick.
