Why can't we have "Remember position of previously viewed files" without having to keep a public history of every file we view in MPC? I know you have to store the file path with the position so MPC will know which positions go with which files. But that's got nothing to do whether we want a history list to be displayed when File > Recent is selected.

Because I'm only concerned with accidentally hitting Page Up or Page Down, I also don't want MPC to remember filenames or positions on exit. Once I exit MPC, I want it to forget that it ever viewed any files. The history list is completely separate from what I've asked for and why I asked for it.
There are several ways for you to workaround this.

First, if you find yourself accidentally hitting a key that does something annoying like Page Up/Down is for you, you can disable that key from doing anything in MPC-HC options -> Player -> Keys. You could also just change it so that a "normal" keypress does nothing but a CTRL+Keypress does work. Either would fix your problem of pressing the key inadvertantely.

Second option: in MPC-HC options -> Player check "Store settings in .ini file" so MPC-HC will keep all of its settings (and history) in an mpc-hc64.ini in its program folder. Then enable all history settings and keep a copy of your mpc-hc64.ini file somewhere with all history removed. Now, every time you are done "editing" in MPC-HC just overwrite the mpc-hc64.ini file with your saved backup copy, and "poof" all history is gone. You could make this process "1-button" easy with a simple batch file. If it sounds like it would work for you I would help you create it (if you are not computer & batch file savvy).

Please do NOT post any feature requests in this topic or on Github. I am not interested in your requests and I will NOT implement them. The developers themselves solely decide which functionality is added.

Posts deleted by rule 4 violation. Please by nice with other users.

The developper choice is clear, the users choice is use or not MPC-HC like it is.

I've moved the discussion of color calibration and renderers, which really isn't about MPC-HC at all after all, to a new thread: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=185452

Meanwhile, I'm pissed off. This is the third time in two weeks this thread's gone off the rails, after a warning without strikes already. I don't know how much more clear it has to be, stop antagonizing clsid for not bowing to your whims. Accept their somewhat brusque style as a consequence of asking to add to their own workload, rather than thinking it's a personal attack on you that they just don't want to do what you think they should, and will tell you very directly. Breathe, people, it's a media player, not an excuse to wade into battle. Fortunately, most of you don't need to hear this, but those who do know who they are.

Has anyone else noticed that MPC-HC sometimes hangs on startup?

Nothing happens, so I run MPC-HC again. Nothing happens again, so I look in the program manager and see two MPC-HC instances. When I kill one, only then does the other one start.

Sometimes a stuck task happens to me too. But the reasons can be hard to spot. The player as such is not very probable, as it is "merely" a container for the really active components, decoder and renderer. And especially a decoder is vulnerable to e.g. data errors in media sources.

Jup, confirmed - haven't happen in a while for me, but somehow I doubt that this is due to me upgrading it to 2.1.4 (c82061aef) [x64] in january (btw. time to upgrade again) and it most of the time is just happening whence i switch through (many) videos in a short time (with some seeking) [for instance whence taking screenshots for episode thumbnails (new season, new series bought and encoded - whatsoever)] and I guess that LigH is right and the real culprit/hickup within the filterchain is nearly impossible to nail down by regular use and i guess even pretty hard to hunt down in a dedicated test environment/debuging scenario.

Madvr is a common cause of freezes/hangs. Specially when combined with d3d11 native hardware decoding. It is bug in Madvr related to not freeing its queue for LAV to use, so there is NOTHING I can do about it. Madshi knows about it for years. It happens rarely, but excessive seeking can trigger it more frequently.
