This is unrelated to the new release as I have the same problem with 0.80, but does anyone else also have problems getting deinterlacing to work?
I'm on Win 7 x64, Radeon HD 5850, Catalyst 12.2 and deinterlacing just won't work, even if I force it via ctrl+alt+shift+d, I still see all those combs. It worked fine when I used it a few weeks ago (or use a different filter like LAV Video to do the deinterlacing), so maybe it is something with the new drivers?

There are some weird subtitle behaviour when there are media player messages in the top left corner. I guess this is why you've disabled the "pause" messages, but if you seek, change volume etc, the problem is still there. And I'd like to have the pause message =).

Hi madshi,
Very glad to report madVR 0.81 has fixed the following bug!!

about this ZP + madVR bug that triggers freeze on seek after frequency switch, I believe I found a more robust method to reproduce it.
Here it is:
With the latest ZP, latest madVR, on XP SP3.
1. In ZP, set the Control Bar as follows, and the Playback Video as follows.

2. Set madVR to change the frequency as follows.

3. Open ZP, put it in fullscreen. Have the control bar appear at the bottom of the screen. If you copied the settings above, it should stay there always.

4. Now open a PAL media (exemple 25fps xvid avi) while your current resolution is 720p60.

5. madVR switches to the resolution instructed in 2.

6. The bug can be seen: ZP interface is now slow, the windows "paint" function for ZP works much slower. If you scroll the control bar for say 30 seconds when ZP is in this state, it will freeze ZP entirely.
Before the freeze occurs, if you reopen the same media from there, it solves the issue instantly (ZP becomes normal/fast again) and no more freeze on seek due..

Please let me know if you can reproduce.
It doesn't _always_ happen, so please try a couple of times.
Thanks,

TSR
Addendum: The issue never happens with any other renderer + ReClock switching.
And from what I've tested so far, everything is perfect; thank you very much!
See you,

TSR

Hmm, using v0.80, my 3-year old HD4870 literally died trying to play the Life in the Garden 4k resolution video; it was totally unplayable! But with the new version, the video plays semi-fine with 1-2 dropped frames per second. Great performance increase here.

Yeah, I mean it looks better with madvr's IVTC instead of dxva deinterlacing. I'm not sure if there's more going on technically, but in the case of this DVD it wanted to use deinterlacing first.

Are you using the Direct3D11 presentation option in madVR? Which OS and which GPU are you using?

Yes and Windows 7 with a GTX 550 Ti 285.62 WHQL drivers

I can't get deinterlacing to work either. When I turn on deinterlacing in madVR (and turn off software deinterlacing in LAV Video Decoder) and try to play back my 1080i60 content I get audio but no video (video is black/blank in mpc-hc). Had the same issue with version .80. I've got a Radeon 6570 w/Catalyst 12.1.

I need some help from the nVidia gurus. I finally updated the 450 machine with the 295.73 driver, set up my custom profiles for 23.976 and 59.940, update LAV to the latest from source, and updated to madVR 0.81. I'm getting presentation glitches no matter what I try. And I'm getting dropped frames randomly, as well. (What I mean is playing the same video a few times I get dropped frames in different spots...not consistent). The queues are all over the place. One minute they're full and everything's happily screaming along, and then suddenly the presentation or render, or decoder queue will drop and the presentation glitches or frame drops happen. What settings are people using these days to stabilize nVidia cards on the latest driver?

It's still there with 81.
May I also add the request to fix the similar problem with UT video with its native decoder? It's exactly the same problem - the video plays fine with LAV decoder + madVR but the native UT decoder + madVR results in black image. UT decoder + EVR works though... I'm talking specifically about the RGB codec, I haven't tried YUV420 and YUV422 codecs.
Link to the codec: http://umezawa.dyndns.info/archive/u...10.2.4-win.exe
Sorry if this has already been reported/discussed.

This really could be an aspect, since FRAPS decoder always converts to RGB.

Display changer bug:
Code:
Start playback of 1920 x 1080p24 video on primary -> drag to secondary screen -> fullscreen video -> display changer changes mode from
2048 x 1152 @ 60Hz to 1920 x 1080 @ 24Hz -> video goes to exclusive mode but display and composition rate in OSD still show 59.940Hz -> 
stuttering playback since new refresh rate of video not changed by madVR accordingly. The only way for me to have the the madVR update the refresh rate is 
for me to drag the video to my primary screen (60Hz) and then back to my secondary (still at 24Hz). If I set the the display changer to go back to the 
original refresh rate after the media player has left fullscreen mode then obviously I can't update the display refresh rate information at all.
2 screens:
Code:
Primary -> 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz
Secondary -> 2048 x 1152 @ 60Hz
Display changer modes:
Code:
Primary -> default [60hz]
Secondary: 2048 x 1152 @ 60Hz -> 1920 x 1080 @ [60Hz, 50Hz, 24Hz]
Display changer setup:
Code:
Primary -> defaults
Secondary -> [1] Switch to matching display mode [media player fullscreen] | 
[2] Restore original display mode [media player closed (I have also tried when media player leaves fullscreen)]
Configuration:
Code:
[MPC-HC, ffdshow video/audio decoder, LAVSplitter, Win7 x64] @ latest

Just updated to 0.81 from 0.80.

Deinterlacing works for me, finally. In older versions, playback was not smooth.

Issue: I tag my PAL MKV files with "23p" in the filename. 0.81 no longer auto-switches monitor frequency, stays at the default 50Hz. Worked fine with 0.80. Have also tried using "24Hz" in the filename, and fullscreen and windowed. Have double-checked my auto-frequency settings, all is set fine.

ATI5750 on Intel i5 CPU.

That sounds something like what I had with 080 but is fixed in 081. I don't use the lastest nvidia driver however, Im still on 290.53.

I found the best exclusive mode flush settings are don't flush, don't flush, don't flush, flush & wait(sleep). I also have present several frames in advance checked.

Yea, that's what Nev just told me to try, as well. I was on 290.53 previously but updated because they all said that the latest driver didn't break stuff. So I don't think it's driver related. I'll try the flush settings...that's the only thing I haven't tried so far. Hopefully that'll do it. Thanks!!

Is there some definitive method to determine what the best GPU flush settings in windowed/exclusive mode are for one's specific setup? I really hate toying around with the settings because there are too many variables to keep track of changing what affected the outcome.

No, not really. That's kinda the issue. It'd be nice to have some kind of "default profile" for each type of hardware to start with a base configuration. Then you can tweak that. What we have now is people posting what works for them and between AMD, Intel, and nVidia, it's wildly different.

Personally I'd stick with either trying Flush or No Flush combinations first with Flush and Sleep being next and Flush and Loop last as it's the most demanding and least required option.
It doesn't take as long finding a good combination that way.

It just took me quite a while to find settings that work for me again. no, no, no, flush and wait (sleep), and then I had to crank the presentation queue up to 12. Now it stays filled enough to not give me issues.

Just applied those settings to exclusive mode and it seems to be working really well. Thanks!
