    Grab win7 codec pack and the x64 components then enable DXVA on both. shark007.net makes them.

    I've been using K-Lite Codec Pack (with its included Media Player Classic Homecinema). The combo makes it real easy to get DXVA going with H. 264, VC-1, and other accelerated formats.

    I second that.
    Additionally do not forget to install latest DirectX 9.0c August components
    since DXVA is depending on some parts of them.

    That would be a problem with the encoding method used to make the video file. Some are properly encoded and some are not.

    use media player classic home cinema, set output for video to EVR (no need to install k-lite as you can use the inbuilt decoders in mphc).

    That's it, check CPU usage and you should be in business! :)

    k-lite codec pack is awesome. Some people seem to prefer CCC codec pack because it is more lightweight but it's also outdated.

    I've actually used both and like k-lite better.

    Correction: CCC codec pack has a new version released just a couple of days ago.

    IIRC, with ATI cards only support acceleration of H. 264 files that are encoded at or below MP @ 4.1.
