has someone got hardware acceleration for h.264 with latest mpc hd and cyberlink in vista with a nvidia graphics like a 6800gs?
7900GTO here, using 162.22 with vista ultimate 32bit. Only SW profile shows up no matter what type of file i play. Using the h.264 decoder from Powerdvd 7.3 ultra.

SW for me too, using Vista X64, Cyberlink H.264 codec from PowerDVD Ultra, and 7900 GTO GPU.
I always assumed it was doing it HW tbh.

MC Profile shows up when using EVR Mode (Standard). It does improves the playback of 1080i videos significantly, but 720p/1080p videos still the same. CPU usage around 15% lower (C2D@2.8Ghz)

The EVR mode is horrible though. It ALWAYS outputs in 16-235levels and there are ugly grey bars for wide screen instead of black ones.

I've read a few posts about the grey bars, but I've not had that problem yet.

For me it is 'Bitstream' with EVR Standard and 'SW' with EVR Custom, just as expected, at least what I expected...

I've had the grey bars on all computers I've tried EVR on, and both on Vista and XP x64 too.
I want to know your secret, do you have Nvidia or Ati videocard?

For XP you can try to add thoses keys in registry :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{ GUID }\0000

VMRCCCSStatus 3 (dword)
VMRCCStatus 3 (dword)

For GUID, it depend of you machine and it's the GUID with the largest number of keys. Unfortunatly this trick didn't work with vista

1. Launch regedit and determine the current primary display card by looking in "HKey_Local_Machine\Hardware\DeviceMap\Video" and note the GUID (global unique identifier assigned by Windows), which is the long string in brackets { } at the end of the entry "\device\video0".

2. Look in "HKey_Local_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{GUID}000" where {GUID} is the number derived from the previous step.

3. Open the "0000" directory and create a new DWORD called "VMRCCCSStatus" and give it a value of 3

MPCHC set to output in EVR Mode (standard, NOT custom presenter), Haali Media Splitter, Cyberlink H.264 Decoder. Try apple hd trailers, they all work when set to .hdmov


Just flashed my 7900gto to a gtx, no difference :P

I found the reason of MPC freeze when trying to view DVD (.ifo) or .vob files with standard Microsoft source filters qdvd.dll/mpg2splt.ax (NOT internal MPEG PS/TS/PVA source filter) with Haali Video Render dxr.dll. It caused by deadlock in
Code:
STDMETHODIMP CFGManager::EnumFilters(IEnumFilters** ppEnum)
{
	if(!m_pUnkInner) return E_UNEXPECTED;

	CAutoLock cAutoLock(this);

	return CComQIPtr<IFilterGraph2>(m_pUnkInner)->EnumFilters(ppEnum);
}
because sometimes (most of the times) it at first called by Haali Video Render (NOT main thread) and during it execution it is called from MPEG-2 Splitter/Demultiplexer (main thread). For myself I have made patched version (where I fill with NOPs calls of EnterCriticalSection/LeaveCriticalSection of this function) which works without freeze. May be somebody can find more correct workaround for this problem than removing critical section.

Hey, I did the CTRL + CyberLink video but I couldn't get the mode (software, hardware). I did get an extra "statistics" information on CyberLink's properties, though. It says the average fps, expected fps, etc. (Cyberlink Video/SP Decoder, PowerDVD 7 Ultra BD/HD-DVD Edition)

You were talking about doing this on MPC, right?

Oh! Finally you guys realised about the grey bars when using EVR. I've been crazy about it for quite some time. You can adjust your video to scale to the extended range (0-255) but the grey bars are still there. The effect is awful, check it out.

I have already sent a support ticket to NVIDIA and I have also posted about it on Microsoft Newsgroups. It seems that nobody have this problem. NVIDIA hasn't replied to me yet.

Oh, by the way, I don't think this grey bar problem occurs with the analog RGB connection, only with DVI. I have made several tests and analog RGB is always fine.

There might have been a change here in drivers 163.69 (or whatever the latest was) bot I'm not 100% certain.
I updated from the previous 163.67 and the bars are now some degree darker.
As I said it might be something else that caused it but try these drivers and see if it helps any.
I'm on Vista x64

edit: and also using DVI (single link)

Only possible with the H.264 decoder.

Ah, I must have missed that Cinch. Sorry.

Beaver, they released these new drivers yesterday, I didn't know about them. Downloading. But EVR Custom with the new MPC release is producing such amazing, awesome quality I hope it doesn't get ruined by the new drivers (as far as I know, the custom presenter shouldn't be affected because it doesn't depend on the drivers). In fact, I am keeping this MPC version forever, in case EVR Custom ever gets broken. lol, just kidding.

[EDIT] Just tested the new drivers, the bars are still 16, 16, 16. No change.

Strange, I guess something else must have caused the change somehow.

How did you get 0-255? More annoying then the grey bars tbh.

And was that a regular analog RGB or through a dvi to d-sub adapter?

I'm using MPC HC on Vista Ultimate (32bit) with an ATi Radeon X800 Pro and I too get the wrong black levels with grey bars at widescreen. This only happens in EVR mode, Haali is fine. My display is connected via D-SUB/VGA.

Do you have any screenshot comparison? Would be great to see that difference.

Thanks!

Delude101, I have adjusted the brightness and contrast on the NV Control Panel to get 0-255. I don't think I made it a perfect 0-255 scaling, but I won't use it anyway because of the issue in the picture. And for all other renderers, including EVR Custom Presenter on MPC HC, the bars are all black and the 0-255 scaling is perfect.

I got EVR to add pure black bars using a regular analog RGB connector, not analog through DVI (using adapter).
