    1. How do I add MKV files to windows media player library. I found some kind of registry hack but not sure I should do that?

    It won't. MKV won't be indexed or listed.

    Why not use something else, like XBMC?

    I think XBMC might be good idea to be Frank, I will install XBMC on Linux first and check if network sharing works better with XMBC.

    Let us know what you decide. And I won't really suggest K-Lite, I find it to be full of BS and bloatware, use KMPlayer/MPC HomeCinema/PotPlayer and if nothing works, VLC. VLC plays everything, but is a resource hog. Other mentioned players will play almost everything you throw at it.

    Go full communist and download CCCP. I can help you over sexts or sexype to set it all up.

    Also once you get you GTX, download the Core AVC codec and use that as the preferred video decoder.

    CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 25, 2014 ---
    Do setup your video players to use CUDA once you get the GFX card. Saves a bunch of resources and is much faster.

    Okay. I gotta look into this. K lite has been my player of choice for donkeys of years now. Your review will help for sure.
