Dang, that sucks. I'll have to set up a shortcut to disable them when I'm watching something.

In the notification sidebar, press the Expand button and then use "Quiet Hours" tile. It has a moon icon.

Quiet Hours only works at night for other times you need to change the clock or change the registry.

green horizontal stripe at the bottom of video

~1 pixel wide across the screen

https://workupload.com/start/qny29zC

just in this one blu ray, never ever had this issue with any other.
in vlc not visible, only in mpc-hc. is it defect in BD or playback problem?

The stripe seems to be encoded into the video.

if video crop flags in mkv container worked in mpc with lav filters, would come in very handy for such files.
let alone dvd remuxes where they are needed every time.
i hope maybe you'll get around to add support for that eventually.
thanks so much for all your work on these filters!

Is there something that can be done for MPC-HC when reopening audio files to restart from where I was listening?

Example: I stopped at 1 hour and 10 minutes

When I open the audio file again it comes back to 0:00:00

This never happens with videos

I always have to adjust from where I was listening before

Usually podcasts I interrupted during work

I have a question, not an issue, but a curiosity that has bugging me for ages: In the "Mixing" tab on LAV Audo Decoder, there's a box with three volume level sliders that are used when dowxming: Center Mix, Surround Mix Level and LFE Mix, whose default values are 1.00, 0.71 and 1.58 respectively. Just wondering, what's the reason behind these values? Do they have anything to with "surround channels matrix" or something like that? And if I use headphones with MPC-HC, are these the recommended values when a 7.1 or 5.1 track is being downmixing into stereo? Thanks in advance.

These are the standard values according to ITU-R BS.775. 0 dB for center, -3 dB (x0.71) for surrounds, and LFE +10 dB (minus 6 dB because it's mixed into two channels = +4 dB = x1.58).

Default valures are 0.71, 0.71 and 0.00.

Using 1.00 for Center can be good for those who which to enhance the volume of the voices relative to everything else. Certainly useful in case of headphones.

For LFE both 0.00 and 1.58 can be considered 'correct'. I prefer 0.00. The LFE channel sometimes contains 'junk' (non-low freq stuff) that can hurt quality if send to a normal speaker that doesn't filter that away. The regular channels already contain a bit of bass so you're not missing much.

Are MPC-HC internal LAV's defaults different from official LAV?

They might be. I haven't checked.

No.



Yes.
Thanks for the explanation, now I know the reason behind those numbers.

Hmm, I'll compare the output mix with LFE set to 0.00 and 1.58, and see which one sounds better. By the way, don't know if I'm just mistaken, but I have the impression that some surround tracks downmixed actually sound better than the stereo track, specially on musical performances. It just sounds fuller and more pleasant, however it might be subjective.

That's the art of mixing. You can punch up a bit of bass, and one dude will be bowled over by how amazing it is, and another dude will complain that it muddies the mid-range and muffles the voices. It definitely varies per-song and per-scene, too, and that's why audio techs get paid really big bucks in Hollywood to mix every moment of a movie individually.

MP4 files no longer play reliably
------------------------------
For the past few years I've always associated MP4 files with MPC-HC as my preferred player. But something seems to have changed recently and I'd appreciate help on fixing it please.

The symtomps vary from file to file. Sometimes when I d-click a video file associated with MPC-HC, or use Open With, the program opens but it does not play. (Even if I click the Play arrow it still does not start. If however I click the 'Stop' button and then the Play button, it starts playing.) And with some files it plays only the audio.

It's version 1.7.13 (e37826845) and I'm usin g Win 10.

The 1.7.x branch is, I suppose.

Try here, instead:
MPC-HC 1.8.4
