The future of MPC-HC

During the release of 1.7.13 an announcement was made, that it might be the last official release due to a lack of developers. Since then, several people have contacted the project admin (XhmikosR) with the offer to help. So the project is still alive. Basic maintenance tasks (like updating external components such as LAV Filters) are covered. Ideally we would like to get some actual real development action going too. So we need new and more developers.

What we would like to have right now is a list of important bugs, so we have something tangible that (potential) newcomers can focus on.

We also want to make a list a feature requests for new functionality that could be added. Preferably things that are easy to implement!!!

Everyone please share your thoughts.

Please link to an existing Trac topic (if it exists) for bugs/requests:
https://trac.mpc-hc.org/report/1

MPC-BE has "this" already with a basic HDR-SDR conversation too is the code so incompatible?

It might be easy to copy. I don't know. I am just making a list of things that can be done. I am currently going through 1800 topics on Trac.

The difficulty is in finding people that can and want to do things, not the difficulty of the tasks themselves.

View of the player is reset to default when you press the Esc key.
https://trac.mpc-hc.org/ticket/6055

Can't choose source filter
https://trac.mpc-hc.org/ticket/6054

Video doesn't launch in fullscreen when playback is initiated within the player via Ctrl+E(Reopen File) or Ctrl+Q(Quick Open File), etc. "Launch files in fullscreen" is on.

so i add a feature request that was planned anyway.

it's part of the internal audio renderer sanear: https://github.com/alexmarsev/sanear/issues/5

it's the reclock "thingy" i don't know if it was started and i don't know if anything of this exists but i'm pretty sure this will make power user happy.

i don't even know if sanear is seen as a part of MPC-HC now.

Overriding source filters isn't as simple as you make it out to be. There is no way for a source filter to advertise which formats/protocols it supports, other then registering itself as the default system-wide.

So you can try to force using some source filter, but there is no way to know which formats it might accept, unlike video/audio decoders, where this is completely known ahead of time.

Only use the refreshrate changer of madvr and disable that functionality in your players.
I will only add bugs that have been reproduced or at least been reported by multiple users. It is nearly impossible for devs to fix something they can't reproduce, certainly the kind of bug you are having. So please try to find more people with same problem, gather system details (OS/GPU/driver/etc) and find something in common.

Hey guys, how about supporting .xspf playlists/streams like MPC-BE?

The projects should probably be remerged, I know there was probably some disagreement etc at the time but considering the situation now it makes sense to recombine the effort. As a far as UI is concerned, there a a couple of toolbar plugin designs which should be part of the actual player, for example toolbar_ZoNi_Farm-Fresh which looks great on the black MPC-BE.

A merge is totally unrealistic.

For feature requests, please create a new ticket on Trac. For things from MPC-BE, it would also be very helpful if you can link to the relevant commits in their code repository. The more info in the Trac ticket the better it is. This decreased the workload of a potential developer, which increases the chance that the task will be picked up by someone.

Why was it split in the first place? I've always preferred the black GUI before I gave it up in favor of mpv last month.

That's fair enough, but I would challenge anyone to try versions 1.7.10 and 1.7.11 themselves with madVR refresh rate changing, and not encounter this issue.

Fortuitously the issue is not apparent in 1.7.13 64 bit at least, in both Windows 7 and Windows 10. I haven't tested 1.7.13 32 bit yet.

Any possible chance for JanWillem32's work on internal video renderer merge into master branch in the future?
