What is your CPU and ffdshow build btw? 20% for just passthru seems to be a bit too much. 10% would be more sensible, imo.
1900MHz Athlon XP. Previously used 21. december build and went back to Milan's latest compiled build from 29. november. The 20% rise only happens with these WMV9 in avi files AVC in MKV is fine (same resolution, framerate and colorspace) with CoreAVC being the decoder (so ffdshow's role is the same as with the WMV9 files).

so what is displayed in filters submenu exactly if haali renderer is working? just "video renderer"? I wonder why the renderer should run on my old matrox g400...
It says "Haali's Video Renderer".

"Video renderer" is old pre VMR renderer :O

Haali renderer should be displayed in the "Filters" submenu on playback, if it's working

Truth being said, I don't know I would trust old ways more anyhow. I.e. either registry tweakening or downloading program which does it for you. "WMVPostpross.exe" is the name. Link for it was somewhere on doom9, along with instructions how to do essentially same thing but manually altering registry values.

Since PP complexity is directly linked with pixels per frame, disabling PP in WMV9 gives HUEG boost in speed on hdtv resolutions. I.e. with my athlon XP i couldn't watch some 1024*576 wmv9 videos withouth framedropping. Until i disabled PP. Then CPU % dropped considerably, effectively being not so much over XVid.

Hmm... Strange. I NEVER had any problems with b0b0rs 1221 build. Sure you use his build? (SSE1 only on x264.nl). And try kuroshi SSE Athlon builds as well (but they have some problems, as I noted in ffdshow builds thread).

Sure it's WMV Decode which does WMV decoding? And which colorspace is ffdshow receiving?

Found the WMVPostpross.exe. There is a difference in CPU usage, but the 100% @ fullscreen resize remains.

Can't remember off hand if it was b0b0r's build or not, but it was a fast build and worked very well with my AXP. Note, the strange behavior is also present with the Milan's 29. nov build (which to me seems very stable). I'll try some other builds.

Yup, "WMVideo Decoder DMO" in the filters list and ffdshow receives YV12 as expected (encode source from DVD).

Yes, same here, aprox. 3-4 sec. Geforce 6600GT, driver 81.85, MPC 6.4.8.8
Is it right ? (maybe because of desing ?)

I presume the slow startup is because of buffering. Try setting the amount of buffering lower in Haali Video Renderer properties (click on it in the filters list).

So this renderer properly scales the chroma in YV12 (4:2:0) so that you don't get the jaggies?
I have a 6600GT, so no RGB overlay, and VMR9 does a 0-255 -> 16-235 conversion that washes out the video. MY only choice is to convert to RGB and use VMR9, but then I have to switch to Overlay for non RGB sources!

Yup.

EDIT: Ah, actually the renderer doesn't support YV12 at all. I guess the YUY2 > RGB is done without such mistakes though.

Not to be a nitpicker, but it is really the other way around, the possible conversion is from 16-235 -> 0-255 (since the levels in video are originally 16-235).

You could try the latest forceware 84.12, reportedly nvidia changed the behavior with these drivers and 16-235 -> 0-255 conversion is done with VMR9 (ppl at avsforum weren't too happy).

Okay, I am on Forceware 81.98 and it does do a 16-235 -> 0-255 conversion, making the video look washed out. Are you saying that 84.12 doesn't do the conversion or that it does do the conversion? My current setup does do the conversion.

In my experience, not doing conversion from 16-235 to 0-255 will make the video look washed out on a PC display (which expects levels 0-255). 84.12 does the conversion, previous drivers do not (AFAIK).

Thanks, breez, 84.12 solves the problem completely. That simplifies my video playback experience a great deal.

You need a recent MPC (6.4.8.8 was just released). You can choose Haali renderer from the options (Output).
