MPC-HC v1.7.16

About

This is an unofficial build. It is based on the latest source code of the official project, plus some additional small fixes and improvements. And most importantly, it includes the very latest version of LAV Filters!

It is unclear if there will ever be an new official release. The current project manager has said he lost interest in the project and I haven't got any further responses in the past weeks.

I have been involved in MPC development (with small contributions) for almost 15 years, so consider these semi-official builds

Development state

MPC-HC does not have any active developers right now. So don't expect any new functionality or other big changes. The player already is mature and provides all functionality that most people need. MPC-HC is open source, so anyone who is interested can contribute fixes and improvements. You can submit patches to me, and when I think your change is useful, I will gladly include it in a future build.

What I will be doing is keep the internal codecs (LAV Filters) up-to-date. This means that you can continue to play everything with MPC-HC in the future, just as you can now. For example, support for decoding the upcoming AV1 video format will be added once it becomes available in FFmpeg. I will also try to keep some other (externally developed) components like MediaInfo up-to-date. And maybe do some small bugfixes.

I will NOT be working on any new features. So please don't post any feature requests in this topic.

Source

Changelog

Changelog 1.7.15 to 1.7.16:

* Updated LAV Filters to v0.71-25
* Updated MediaInfo DLL to v18.03.1

! Limit inaccuracy of fast seek to 20 seconds. This also fixes seeking in files that have invalid keyframe timestamps.

Changelog 1.7.14 to 1.7.15:

* Updated LAV Filters to v0.71

+ Skip seeks if duration is unknown
+ Support playback of UHD Blu-ray discs. With same limitations as regular Blu-ray. No menus, and disc must be decrypted (using external tool).
+ Added compatibility warning when attempting to enable "Full Floating Point Processing" renderer option
+ Tweaked video renderer presets

Changelog 1.7.13.112 to 1.7.14:

+ Removed DrDump crash reporter
+ Added support for newly added settings of LAV Filters
+ Now uses external MediaInfo DLL
+ Different resource FileDescription for x64 build. This name is used in the Open With list of Windows Explorer. This helps distinguish x64 from x86 build in that list.
+ Render subtitles relative to the window by default. ASS/SSA are still rendered relative to video by default, because those sometimes need accurate positioning. This behavior can be adjusted in the options. This patch just changes the default value of that setting.
+ Added command line switches for accessing settings of internal LAV Filters: /configlavsplitter /configlavaudio /configlavvideo

* Updated LAV Filters to v0.70.2-88
* Updated MediaInfoLib to v17.12

! Fix /open and /close command line handling
! Simplify code for setting renderer merits
! Fix explorer context menu option state display

Changelog 1.7.13 to 1.7.13.112 (latest official nightly):

+ Added fallback exception handler for when DrDump Crash Reporter is unavailable
+ Automatic encoding option for saving playlists. Uses UTF-8 encoding when applicable
+ Sanear: Added "Ignore system channel mixer" option
+ Split internal MPEG source filter option into a PS and TS variant
+ SSA/ASS subtitles: Add cache for alpha mask
+ Added command line parameter for setting the viewing preset: /viewpreset with values 1 (minimal) 2 (compact) 3 (normal)
+ Added command line parameter for launching with muted audio: /mute
+ Added command line parameter for launching with specific volume: /volume [value]

* Windows XP is no longer supported
* Now compiled with Vidual Studio 2017 and Windows 8.1 SDK

* Updated LAV Filters to v0.70.2-71
* Updated Little CMS to v2.9 (d8a36d0)
* Updated MediaInfoLib to v0.7.98
* Updated nanosvg to 9a74da4
* Updated rapidjson to v1.1.0
* Updated RARFileSource to 55b2513
* Updated Sanear to v0.3 (e1bebc9)
* Updated tinyxml2 to v5.0.1
* Updated Unrar to v5.5.7
* Updated ZenLib to v0.4.36

! Disabled hooking of NtQueryInformationProcess. This was not needed and caused compatibility issues with a few security software products.
! Fixed text subtitle rendering in Avisynth
! Prevent crash for ASS subtitles with invalid (too high) blur values
! VSFilter: Fixed DVB/PGS subtitle resizing on x64 build
! Ticket #2539: Subtitle downloader dialog could be opened on disabled monitor
! Ticket #5036: Text subtitles: Faster subtitle drawing
- Implemented more vectorized SSE2 version and add AVX2 drawing code.
- Vectorized all draw operations
- Multiple times faster with certain SSA/ASS subtitles
! Ticket #6223: Fixed DPI scaling of non-client areas in main window
! Ticket #6231: Fix hash calculation for files with Unicode paths. This fixes search on
OpenSubtitles for such files

Great initiative. I'm very happy to see that mpc-hc is not completely dead yet
Would you consider applying a patch for a colored seekbar in your builds? I mean, even if it's still available somewhere

BTW, the forum may alter titles or post which contain only uppercase characters, so try to add a lowercase word too (e.g. at least "MPC-HC v1.7...", if not even "media player" in addition).

No requests please. There are no developers right now. If you want something to get done, find somebody to do it and submit a patch.

Thank You, clsid, to do what noone else (who has the expertise) wanted to do: not letting the project die! Thanks for your work!

When I change between Full-screen and windowed than madvr crashes and mpc-hc also. Not at the first time, but after 4 or 5 "fast" changes. Old mpc-hc version works fine.
This was my first test(not much time right now).

No recent changes in that area, so it is unlikely a new problem. Use latest version of Madvr and if that crashes, submit the crash report to madshi.

please change in mpc hc:

https://trac.mpc-hc.org/ticket/6283 - so you can know which title and close with x (on the bar)

https://trac.mpc-hc.org/ticket/6263 - you can not see the subtitles, please to move up.

You need to read this first post in this thread. There is NO DEVELOPMENT happening in MPC-HC anymore, including fixes. clsid was kind enough to do a new build with newer versions of various components, but he does not do development.

It's a pity, because these changes are needed.

If any developer is able to provide patches, clsid may consider including them. But he will probably not write them.
