Hello there!

I want to use the MPC-HC video decoder in MP for H.264 decoding. I already registered the file in the OS\SysWow64 folder (regsrv32.exe

But I cannot choose it in MediaPortal? Is there something else I can do, as I have a better quality in MPC with their codec then in MP with CoreAVC.

    What you have done should work, it works for me. As what above has posted, make sure you use te 32bit version. After you register a codec sometimes you have to relogin to windows to see it.
