i don't suppose we can make requests here? if so, could stand-alone support for AAC HEv2 (via shoutcast) be added? we're not allowed to install software at work, and a 20-40kbps stream would be less noticeable than a 160kbps, i'd think ...mp3 streaming over shoutcast works perfectly fine, tho

Why not just use Winamp for that ?

Install it at home, zip it, and voila, you got a portable version. Winamp uses an INI file for storing its settings.

Would it be hard to add VC-1 and H.264 support for MPEG Splitter? Haali's splitter has bad stuttering with MPEG-2 .m2ts files, no matter which codec I use(Core 2 Duo 6600, 6800 Ultra), also it won't show thumbs in Windows or in Media Center. It's also guite slow to load, maybe because it's so bloated. Gabest's MPEG splitter works like a dream with MPEG-2 .m2ts files.

That is on my top priority list now that DXVA is almost finished

Is it possible to seek when using dxva? I seem to remember that all my h264 videos with dxva enabled the video would stop if I tried to seek. FWIW, I have a 8800GT. Thanks.

only if you ask it to use the 'old(shared) method for settings'
if you install it 'every user has their own settings' iuno what it uses

Shared method stores the INI in the application dir. New method stores settings in the Application Data dir of the user.

is it me or MPC HC is having problems to shut itself down ?

sometimes when I check in the task manager, I've got like 10 occurrences of mplayerc.exe

memory leak or sumthing ?

I use it with the stock EVR dll's from .net3 on XP SP2 with the 8.1 ATi drivers, and ffdshow video decoder/haali's splitter/intervideo audio decoder....and I've chosen the option to have only one occurrence playing.

anyhow if you could add a simple call to kill all existing mplayerc.exe when you start the player, that'd be a pretty cool fix

have only done some quick tests but so far i get full hd dvd/blu-ray vc1/h264 dxva on my ati 3850. rock solid 23.976 fps (after hd dvd remuxed and timecodes rewritten) with 0 frame drops, seeking works fine and fast too. don't know about audio sync, haven't muxed in any audio yet.

1-2% avg cpu usage and 2-3% avg gpu usage with 5% max both is pretty awesome

only thing is that the vc1 decoder doesn't seem to crop the bottom 8 garbage pixels of 1920x1088.. other than that, thank you for the amazing work!

@leeperry

I'm using MPC HC rev 396 and have no issues what so ever.
Vista SP1 RTM + 6800GS + Haali renderer.

Also that "killer" feature would not be nice to me because sometimes I need multiple MPCs running at the same time.

That is a somewhat 'common' problem that can happen occasionally. Also with the original MPC. I have had the problem myself a couple of times, but I have never been able to reproduce it consistently.

if it helps I only seem to get it when playing AVC files
thats the only common ground I've seen with it

also
on the hot keys issue
if I use the mute hot key before I open Mpc-HC, it starts in mute and completely kills my mute/volume keys until I close MPC *AND* manually unmute it with the taskbar icon
its kinda annoying, espciecialy if I've hit it by accident

For me it mostly happened with MPEG and WMV files if I recall correctly.

actually If I disable the Intervideo Audio Decoder(from windvd8) while playing mkv files(with Haali's or Gabest's splitters), MPC HC shutdowns properly...

only problem is that this is the only audio filter I've found that gives perfect timing with Reclock..

here's what ProcessExplorer says when I close MPC(try at least) with the Intervideo Audio Decoder running :

FYI, you no longer need Reclock under Vista...

just saw this in the fixed list in the release notes for the catalyst 8.2 drivers ati/amd have just released:

"Playing an H.264/VC1 title on a system with a display resolution higher than 1440x900 no longer results in the content failing to play in hardware mode. Further details can be found in topic number 737-32154"

is that the green/black screen issue we're getting with 1920x1080 files or are they talking about something unrelated?
