    I have MP config set for video files to use FFDShow for audio decoding for MPEG/AC3. When I try to play a file with a DTS-HD soundtrack in the gaph that is actually connected looks like this

    But if I ceate the graph manually I can quite happily get it to work

    Why is MP not using the filters I have asked for as these do create a valid graph

    In logs there are no errors and as below it does quite happily add FFDShow but wont connect to it then adds AC3Fitler and connects this (which does not work)

    Please change the logging level to debug and post new logs, that way MP will log more information when it tries to connect the filters.

    You have AC3Filter as post processing filters so it is used. Remove that first and try again.
