Especially in the context of Usability Frame accuracy would be highly needed i mean you see a picture click on it and you land 20 frames away from its not going to work also if you seeked backwards before and then forward landing @ some random frame would be problematic it would need super stable splitter/decoder first to even think about something like that
Never saw this in any Windows Player the ISV (company, guy or girl) who realizes this in a very fluid way should get a award not even Cyberlink,Arcsoft or Corel/Intervideo got this and they surely thought about it
As said for now we only gonna see that in some Flash Player (as the Mainconcept core it uses is very Frame accurate and not Dshow bound, for the supported formats)
I guess Splash Player does that pretty accurately, actually.

I had a go at making a program icon for MPC-HC. It's my 1st proper icon.

Yeah it does it looks modern which is the whole point!

For file icons, I strongly believe there should really only be two, one that states its video and the other stating its audio. The current icon library might be good in principle, but in reality it just creates a large separate dll and associated memory space use for the icon cache. WIth only an audio and video icon, they can be part of the exe. For example, the bottom of the bars in the above icon could be moved up slightly, and a stylish (maybe 3dish) 'Audio' and 'Video' below.

Just an idea its all about modernisation and throwing around ideas.

I still strongly believe the interface should be Windows 7-esque, considering it will probably stay like this for a while. The one thing I don't want to see are tiny play, stop etc buttons! Nice big (within prefect reason of course)! buttons would be much better. You should be able to point and click without any effort, not making sure you are lining it up properly with the buttons . In Direct3d mode, I don't see why you couldn't have a stop, pause, previous and next buttons on the left of the slider bar maybe? or put it across the top...

Also, seemless playback between files would be good, I don't see why that can't be done over a reiniitialisation which currently occurs... What would be really good is that, and a little button one the player which shows (in addition to the main screen) a window of the video. This would be handy to turn on and off in case you just quickly want to look at a file and are using a secondary screen which you currently have turned off. The shader mod system should also be a lot better, as it sucks having to load a video before using it, and making sure direct3d mode is off to do it! and making sure you enter it the precise way otherwise it has the habit of self deleting the shader input...

Basically, despite MPC-HC being a brilliant player, there is still massive room for improvement

Anyways keep up the good ideas!

What these vertical bars do represent ? An equalizer ? MPC-HC is not an audio player (for me). For me, this icon should be linked to a video player...

Your icon is nice, but for me, not adapted to MPC-HC.

Well, isn't that the default logo on the newest builds? The image that's on the player when it opens?
Also, you can think of it as a blue middle finger to the bloated players.

It is copied from the default MPC-HC logo! It makes a nice logo as it is unique and I rather like the look of it.

I didn't think of that before. I like it .




Now this is what I have just made. I am very pleased with it...





The program icon I posted before is a bit of a 1st draft version. Should be able to improve on it sometime.


EDIT: whoops I forgot to align the logo to the dead center. So that can be easily fixed. If you didn't even notice then pretend you didn't read this .

Your icons. Too pretty. I can't. Hypnotized.
Please, can you post PNGs \ ICOs on all sizes when you finish, so we can implement it on the icon lib, even if unnoficially?

Yes that was my intention.

When done, I would want to put these icons forward for serious consideration to become the official
icons. Although I've no idea how much chance there is of that. Or if even most people care at all
about it.


I've been working on program icons too. I've come up with 4 different versions. Here is a preview. I
want to know what people think of them...

That's my favorite one too. Followed by the gloss icon.




Filetype icons took a lot longer than expected to finish. Take a look...

Maybe you could use different colors for each audio format, like Foobar2000 does (just a suggestion, I'll always use default program association).

But I already found I wasn't happy with a couple of them. I remade the 48px icon and adjusted the 96px one. Updated to version 1.1...

Thanks for your suggestion but the mpciconlib.dll file is usually around ~7MB because of all the different icons which is why I deliberately went for only 2 icons for audio and video. Maybe I will make some more generic icons later to further cut the size in 1/2.



Can anyone volunteer to make the mpciconlib.dll file? I currently have the icons in PNG format with transparency. According to clsid:

But I don't know how to do that. I would need someone to walk me through it or simply make the dll for me.

I could build the dll for both x86 and x64 if you wish

yeah I second that. I normally use the default MPC-HC BE edition default icons, which differentiates by colors video formats. Maybe you could change the blue color with red, green etc for mp4, mkv, avi, and the rest... It looks nice
