On my computer, madVR is installed here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\LAV Filters\x86\madVR

and I've found the "settings.bin" file here:
C:\Users\Peuj\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\LAV Filters\x86\madVR

You may need to add something like this in case the file is not found:

Code:
Set madVRPath=%~dp0
For %%A in ("%madVRPath%") do (
	Set Folder=%%~pA
)
	
cd /d %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\%Folder%

Well, madshi can look at that. I install to a very different place so I don't have that issue.

A couple more questions:

1. Have you tried using another player that uses madVR?
2. Does the mouse cursor behave normally if hardware decoding is turned off?
3. Are you running any special mouse drivers (Logitech, Microsoft, etc.) that might be interfering?

Again, this seems to be specific to your system, not a madVR problem.

I've looked in the bat file and the way it's written, the "settings.bin" file cannot found.

Okay, after installing another player, disabling hardware decoding, uninstalling my mouse drivers, and changing to using Aero from not using Aero, I figured out what it is. Pointer trails. If you have show pointer trails on in the mouse config, you cannot see the mouse cursor in exclusive mode. (At least on my system) So I'd like to report a bug

@huhn
true enough. Must say though that if the renderer used by PotPlayer x64 when the Madshi is called up is really not Madshi then I wonder which one it is. It delivers pretty good quality (which is why I really was convinced that it was Madshi) Is there a way to find which renderer is used in that instance?

Just wanted to say that tags are now fulling working both on filenames and folder names when using the seamless playback feature of PotP 1.5.35146

Also, here's the easiest way to make a SD/HD condition in the automatic profiles:

If you're running x64 vista/7/8, mpc-hc should be able to use 4GB memory, as it is configured to be built with LARGEADDRESSAWARE IIRC.

u can see the renderer in the filter list.

the left one is 64 bit pot the right is 32 bit pot both are set to madvr and 64 use "video renderer" and 32 use madvr with osd.

like i said before i think "video renderer" is the "old renderer" in mpc-hc

when u do the same thing with the 32 biit player u will see madvr in the list.

but now back to my loved mpc-hc with madvr.

even harder to break but i'm a normal user too and i will never break it. i just used 2 gb because it is the normal value 32 bit programs can use.

It breaks nothing, not forcing you to do any tricks, as long as you are a normal user with a normal 64-bit OS, on which LARGEADDRESSAWARE is just a normal flag in 32-bit binary files to inform the system that the binaries are able to handle larger than 2GB memory. This flag is set at compiling time, so it does not need you to bother with. Nothing more than that. Tricks, which are still simple, are only required on 32-bit OS. Now that you can use x64 programs, those tricks are not necessary for you. What one need to do is configure AviSynth in FFDShow or any other memory eaters as one want, load videos and enjoy:

Set madVR in mpc-hc 32bit, and delete madVR.ax, it will fall back to "video renderer", see its CLSID: http://i.minus.com/i4h4lMEAritJm.png

Compared to VMR7 Windowed: http://i.minus.com/icdbvWpzpTp0A.png

Same.


PS: Old Video Renderer's CLSID: http://i.minus.com/iFFGIzXsdA6eI.png

Thanks Madshi, here is the log. http://sdrv.ms/13i3Sgz

My novice reading of it seems to say it thinks there is another window on screen, but if there is it is not visible and switching MC18 to "standard" mode and back to "Theaterview" fixes it.

Congrats on your fine detective work! Glad it's (sort of) working now.

is anyone else having this problem?
http://truexfan81.webs.com/madvr.jpg

seems to only happen when playing xvid files in fullscreen mode using madvr, tried evr, the vid looks normal

i use madvr 0.85.7
chroma: Bicubic 75 AR
luma: SoftCubic 100

thanks

update: activating scale in linear light or AR filter on luma seems to fix it

What is the recommendation for "use a separate device for presentation" on Windows 7 x64?

Also, if anyone else has a plasma TV and has calibrated it before I could really use some help on understanding where to start. So, once I get my i1Display Pro shipment, I'm not sure how to go about calibrating the tv.

There are numerous settings on the tv itself for gamma, black level, rgb levels, contrast, brightness, and color. Which portion of the calibration takes place in fine-tuning the settings on the tv vs the settings in the calibration software which makes the display profile? Also, when does the generation of 3DLUT for madVR happen during the calibration process?

Thanks!

Sharpness

Madshi, where is the postprocessing sharpness algorithm Gpu based YOU PROMISED to us
Lsfmod in avisynth has too much ringing and is not high end. The supersampling incorporated inside it, is only an antialiasing which also sits my overclocked core i5 Cpu.
Gpu elaboration is the only high end way. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for Jinc , it's perfect , wonderful and insuperable

No, he didn't
He wrote about wanting to possibly include in its list of things to do, and then........nothing
But it 's too important for the image quality, WE ABSOLUTELY NEED IT
