For a while now I have been plagued with stuttering playback, both in the Premiere monitor and my Matrox attached monitor. It usually cleared after a while, but not always.

As my Windows 7 installation was well past its second birthday, I decided to re-install. Premiere ran OK on its own, and also after installing my MXO2. I made an image of this (fortunately, as it turned out).

I then installed Mercalli, both V2 plug-in and V3 Stand-alone, the UT video codec, GSpot, MediaInfo, etc.

When I tried Premiere again the stutter was back. I removed the Matrox drivers, and the stutter was gone. Clearly one of my recent installs was the culprit, so I removed each in turn, but with no joy.

This was when my image saved the day. I recalled that Mercalli 3 SAL needed the KLite codec pack to work, and that the new version installed this automatically. So I installed all the others and tried Premiere again - no stutter.

This problem seemed to occur with all versions of the Matrox drivers and Premiere CS6 updates.

So it looks as though Mercalli 3 stand-alone is incompatible with the Matrox drivers.

As un-installing Mercalli did not remove the problem, I suspect that it is actually the K-Lite Codec Pack that is the culprit, and that this is not removed by the un-install.

Hi Alan,

Just wanted to mention, I have K-Lite codec pack installed and I do not have any problems with Premiere or MXO2 rack with Win7.

Hmm????

Interesting - I think there are different generations of the K-lite codec pack, maybe we are not on the same one?

Or maybe I am wrong in my suspicions and it is actually Mercalli 3 itself that is the culprit.

No matter, I can live without the SAL- I almost always use the plug-in, but just occasionally the batch processing of the standalone was useful.
