Add more formats to the media center

In Media Center, the supported playback formats are still relatively small. In terms of Real format, like cartoons and TV shows, it is generally Rmvb format, such a format can not be supported in Media Player, see how I operate. Also select the Video Format Support tab in the MCE Settings tool. In the extension to be supported, enter the suffix of the Real Play format, such as Rm, Rmvb, and click the Add button.

PS: If you can't play the video, it is generally not installed with a decoder such as Real. You can download the official version of Windows 7 Codecs 2.2.8, when the installer proceeds to the window shown in Figure 10. It is recommended that you choose the first item so that the Real format can be played in the media center.
