MPEG2Source freezes after Windows 7 reinstall


I've just reinstalled my Windows 7 workstation and all programs and now MPEG2Source doesn't work in AVISynth. I have been using AviSynth 2.5.8 and DGDecode without any problems in the old Windows installation, but that's over now.

I have tried both AviSynth 2.6.0 and 2.5.8 with the same problem occurring and it doesn't matter whether i put DGDecode.dll (v1.5.8) in AviSynth's plugins directory or if I load it from elsewhere with LoadPlugin(). If I trim my .avs file down to only on line loading a newly created .d2v (from DGIndex) with


then AviSynth hangs, both when loaded from MPC-HC, VirtualDub or ffmpeg, and I have to kill the parent process.

I'm (just like before) running Windows 7 64-bit and the 32-bit official builds of AVISynth and the most recent 32-bit versions of MPC-HC, VirtualDub and ffmpeg.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong or what I should do to debug this situation? Google hasn't been able to help me yet.

Any help is appreciated.

Best wishes,

Pretty odd.

- Run this tool and post the log (File->Save Info).
- Where did you download DGIndex/DGDecode?

I must have been staring at my new scripts for too long before I posted this issue. After looking at my scripts again, I now see that I was actually doing a thing I hadn't done before: I was running DGIndex and MPEG2Source on M2TS and MKV containers and those seem not to be supported although DGIndex will read them and create a .d2v file without complaining. If I demux my containers and run DGIndex on the elementary MPEG2 video stream, it seems that MPEG2Source works without any problems.

I also realize that my old scripts that previously did work don't actually hang due to MPEG2Source not working as the problem above, but due to Normalize() taking a long time to complete on my huge files. My new disk is silent so I can't hear Normalize working it's way through the file as I could previously so I thought it was the same problem.

I'm sorry for wasting everybody's precious time, at least I hope my answer will help others if they run into the same problem as I did.
