Sounds a lot like this decoder bug: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/mpc-hc/ticket/135

OK, now soundtracks and subtitles switches quickly, but the screen at this point flashes black.
And there are new challenges - in PotPlayer(madVR) LAVFSplitter for .avi files does not connect to XVID decoder (also DivX,3viX) only built-in codecs, and on .TS interlaced 1080i MPEG2 (4:2:2) did not see Elecard Mpeg2 HD codec (also DScaler Mpeg2 Video Decoder).
The same problem in the MPC-HC(EVR), only sees the built-in decoders, possibly errors in the players or splitter ?
Another small question, is it possible to make an icon in the tray, as an indicator of spliter's work.
And yet another side issue, there is a problem with Cyrillic fonts in splitter's message.

Thanks.

Like i said before, this is a side effect of the graph rebuild and cannot be avoided. I tested with Haali, and it does the same, i also get a short interruption of playback. I realize that the switch seems a bit slower then on Haali, but sadly there are no other open-source splitters that do this, so i'm building this from scratch, and seeing how this goes.

I can do one change, and on audio switch try to connect to the old filter. If it accepts the connection, just go with that one. This does however have one drawback. If you, for example, use ffdshow, it can handle most, if not all, audio formats, so once its in use, it would not switch to another decoder, even if it has a higher merit. Is this a real problem? To fix it, you would have to turn the formats you don't want ffdshow to handle off in its configuration, but not every filter supports this kind of configuration.
For me it would be fine, as i use ffdshow for most formats, and ffdshow supports turning off the formats i don't want, but i realize not everyone uses a simple setup like this.
I might make this behaviour configurable once i have a property page.

I'll look into the issue with mpeg2 decoder connections, its probably a simple thing thats wrong in the format header.

Btw. MPEG-TS is such a screwed up format, no wonder there is no good reference splitter for it.

That actually sounds like a good idea for all the streams? do you think that is possible?

Also, the slower seeking might be partially caused by time based seeking vs keyframe based, maybe that should be ruled out first?

Video and Subtitles already do this, as replacing the video decoder causes some issues, and the subtitle decoder is usually linked to the video decoder/renderer in some way.

MPEG-TS doesn't offer an easy way to get the keyframes like MKV does, this will need some custom magic to figure out where the GOP borders are.

I tested the LAVFSplitter on this set of files http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5155...les_%28v1.7%29 in PotPlayer/LAVF/MadVr/(XP SP3;Athlon64X25600+/Nvidia9800GT/LCD1400x900)
Overall not bad but there are exceptions:
in file 00019.m2ts (Interlace) splitter can not connect the LPCM audio track to any decoder, indicates error, while Haali quietly connects ffdshow audio decoder;
in VC-1_Sub.mkv does not connect to WMVideoDecoderDMO for "WVC1" FOURCC, like any other except the Pot's built-in(FFmpeg);

That's all, thank you

MPEG-TS has a keyframe flag in the header.

Finally someone make splitter from scratch to replace buggy Haali and not developed Gabest splitter

Feature request:
1. Tray icon to easily manage streams and chapters (like in Haali)
2. Support for indexless, metadateless or other broken or unfinished files
3. Ogg splitter


Bugs:

1.
Unicode support is missing



2.

Ok, thanks a lot for your work.

As there will be probably a lot of bug reports that you won't have time to look at rapidly, don't you think it could be great to have some sort of bug tracker to keep trace of them better than a thread where it will gradually become very difficult to find them ?

vlc demuxer seems to be a lot better in that regard.

Well, VLC demuxer is quite strange too. It does not seem to correctly detect the duration since it displays 00:00 but seeking works, I don't understand how it can be possible so maybe it is just a display problem ...

I was storing important links in some text file so far. but i've been thinking about a proper project page before, and i'll just set it up on googlecode or so.

The readme mentions that it is needed to uninstall Haali. That is actually not needed at all. Simply use this registry key to enable use of LAVFSplitter:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Media Type\Extensions\.mkv]
"Source Filter"="{B98D13E7-55DB-4385-A33D-09FD1BA26338}"
May I suggest to enable runtime CPU detect and not force compilation for a specific CPU type. The filter currently does not work on older CPUs.

Can you give a list of which entries in the following key correspond to which file formats? That will allow the testers here to tweak the filter registration until a configuration dialog is implemented.
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Media Type\{e436eb83-524f-11ce-9f53-0020af0ba770}\{9C53931C-7D5A-4A75-B26F-4E51654DB2C0}

An INI file could be useful to specify for which formats the filter should register itself during installation/regsvr32.
