nevcairiel, there are a couple of posts by Blight - the lead developer of ZoomPlayer in the first 5-6 pages of this thread.
I'm really begging you to take a look at ZoomPlayer - it's not free but has a trial period so you can test it. If you decide to do so, please, use the latest alpha/beta test version 7.10 Alpha 5.
The development is slow in the last months but we hope Blight will come back to active development soon but ZoomPlayer is still one of the most versatile DirectShow media players out there. I've been using it for almost 10 years now and I still haven't found anything that can come close to it's range of settings and options to tweak the media playback.
MPC-HC has it's strengths but it trails in many other features.
nevcairiel,
pretty please, give it a try.
in advance

For me, when there is vc-1 in an mkv, I have to manually seek to a place in the video or else I won't get picture. I'm not using DXVA with mpc video decoder.
Is this a known bug?
here is a sample anyway:
http://www.mediafire.com/?qe4j6xfa4640fln

also, this mkv sample had jerky playback if you tried to play the sample with hd audio.
http://www.mediafire.com/?8b26kzn5cmu9wnj

this sample also had jerky playback, though the hd audio doesnt seem to be the problem in this one:
http://www.mediafire.com/?4a8qitkxzz1kg7f

in all cases, i used version .11 of lavfsplitter.

I am using Zoom Player for years,

In fact, This is the first time I ever used a source/splitter filter that doesnt work in Zoom Player

However manually building a graph in Graphedit does work.
Can anyone please give me a tip?
Am I missing something?
I am on XP pro.

LAVFSplitter won't work with ZoomPlayer. A few months ago there was a brief discussion between the authors of the two programs but they didn't reach to a solution.
I didn't understand what was the problem so I too will be glad if nevcairiel or someone else can explain why this is the only splitter that doesn't work with ZoomPlayer.
I'm not saying that the problem is in the splitter but obviously there is something different in it that prevents it from working in ZP.
What is the error message you guys are getting in ZP while trying to use LAVFSplitter? Enable "Show Smart Play graph creation errors (useful for debugging)" under Playback/Smart Play/Settings & Blacklist.

I'm using ZP 7.1 and LAVFSplitter is working fine for me.

n3w813,
how have you configured ZP?
Do you use LAVFSplitter as a source filter or as a splitter?
For which file type have you configured it?
I'm trying to make it work for .mkv but it doesn't work neither as a source filter (with "This filter is also a splitter" checked) nor as a splitter after the Standard File Source.
In the first case I get this error
Code:
Unable to Create the "lavf dshow source filter" Filter.

Error Code : 00000001 - The file %2 could not be processed by the application %1 because it requires Indeo® Decoders of type %3
and in the second one I get this warning
Code:
Could not find a suitable Decoder for "[Source File: Smart Play Graph].Output"
SubTypes:
{1AC0BEBD-4D2B-45AD-BCEB-F2C41C5E3788}
{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}
and then this error
Code:
Could not create a Smart Play Graph, will now try a standard graph...
So have you tried using it for .mkv files? Can you share with us your .splitter and .sourcefilter files from the MediaAutoGraph subfolder ... or if it's convenient the whole folder.
You can use MediaFire or other sharing server.

I did not have to configure any file types, media types, etc. Just configured the Source filter for Matroska to "lavf dshow source filter" and with "This filter is also a splitter" checked.

I do get the same first error in your post, to disable that prompt, I unchecked "Show Smart Play graph creation errors" checkbox in ZP. I think the error still happens, but ZP will not show it with this checkbox disabled.

See the attached picture, ZP still does end up using the LAVFSplitter as the source filter.

UPDATE: By the way, I've posted a bug report on Inmatrix's forums hoping that the ZP developers will fix this bug on the next release.

It definitely needs to work as a source filter, a pure splitter mode is not supported.

I actually remembered what the discussion with Blight was about, well partly anyway, i never understood what he was asking back then <.<

Yes, having a source filter would be very useful. You could re-use some the code from current MPC source filters for that if needed.

Huh?

I just said the only way it works is being the source filter. It cannot work with any other source filter and "only" be splitter, it needs to be both.

Ive been testing this splitter as a replacement for the inbuilt MPC-HC one with TS files.
The TS files in question are captured from DVB-T using the latest version of TV Scheduler Pro from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tvschedulerpro/

I cut 20MB of a file that is not playing well with LAVFSplitter the video is played like it is as a lower framerate or dropping frames.
Using the MPC-HC spliiter the file plays back fine.
Am using inbuilt MPEG2, MPEG1 MPC-HC filters.

Greetings nevcairiel.

Would like to highlight to you a problem using Arcsoft TMT video decoder with VC1 contents.

It seems that new Arcsoft TMT video decoder after version 175 has problem decoding VC1 contents when presented with media subtype {31435657-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}. The issues include disabling DXVA and playback at the wrong speed.

LAVFSplitter, internal MPC/PotPlayer splitters all suffer from this problem, while the Cyberlink demux 2.0 works well because it uses media subtype {629B40AD-AD74-4EF4-A985-F0C8D92E5ECA}.

The Cyberlinkk PDVD10 decoder doesn't exhibit this problem when forced to accept media subtype {31435657-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}. It uses {D979F77B-DBEA-4BF6-9E6D-1D7E57FBAD53} when connected to Cyberlink Demux.

Can you look into this and perhaps ditch the media subtype {31435657-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71} and use the other two?

Best regards.

It's a bug in TMT that exists even in TMT5. They know about it so maybe it'll get fixed at some point. It's annoying as hell though, and not just when trying to use LAVF.

I don't personally. But, in TMT itself there is this problem, as well. I noticed it in MKV's with VC1.

After installation of lavfsplitter, it seems like a player I use becomes unable to play AVIs over the size of 4GB.
A 5.88GB file stops at around 2/3 of it, which leads me to think this is the case.
Is it possible to support the OpenDML specification?

PS:
and, it seems like lavfsplitter is unable to demux MP4s over the size of 4GB.
Especially, MP4 cannot be played at all.
FFplay, MPlayer, VLC, WMP12, QuickTime for Windows and Haali's splitter are able to play this MP4 without any problem.
(But Gabest's splitter and lavfsplitter cannnot.)
thus, I don't think that this cause is in libavformat or the file.

Any hope for splitting SMPTE-302M / AES3 PCM in TS?

VLC can do it, but I want to pass the audio into ffdshow for decode so I can use its filters to control downmix settings.. I'm dealing with some files that have 8 channels of audio, a 5.1ch mix and a 2ch Lt/Rt downmix. VLC plays all channels at once, which sounds like shit - obviously.

Thanks,
Derek

Not right now, not sure when, if ever, it might happen. Its a rather complicated thing to support.

So its basically two audio tracks, but VLC thinks its one?
Well, avformat would need to support it, and expose it as two tracks for it to work properly. I don't know if it does, as i have never seen such a file.

Sample?
