    Bit rusty on codecs, so try to get an answer/hint here.

    I have some old videos with the lv50 codec and mediaportal won't play them.

    Opening them in graphstudio only puts in a LAV splitter, LAV Audio decoder and Default directsound device, it doesn't add a video decoder+renderer.
    Manually adding the LAV Video decoder and renderer works and plays back ok.

    However, when opening it in mpc, it plays fine, and connecting graphstudio to it, I see it uses a different spliter (default avi splitter?) and adds a LAV Video Decoder and Renderer.

    Mediaportal codec settings is all LAV Video decoder, and using LAV Splitter.
    Is there some way to tell the LAV splitter that it's ok to add the LAV Video renderer for this codec? Manually adding a key for it in the registry didn't work...

    Did you check the LAV video codec settings? There can be some inbuilt codecs disabled. maybe also the one you need?

    they are all enabled, but iv50 isn't an entry in that list.

    Strange that I need new codecs, seeing that if I play it in MPC or manually build the graph in graphstudio it plays fine with LAV

    It's a try if the older codec renders correctly.
    I don't know why the video renderer does not seem to auto-connect in your case. Can you share a short example clip?

    I can confirm your results :(

    When using an automatic build of graph, the LAV splitter source is used, but no video decoder connected. Manually completing graph works.

    But when I create graph starting with "File Source (async)" and let render the output pin, the graph is constructed and playing well...

    No idea what does make the difference

    Hopefully someone will come up with an answer

    It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)

    Updated one of my MP installations (from 1.15) to 1.24 Final recently. It went perfectly smoothly, and fixed a few problems I had been having with video playback. Updated my plugins and Streamed MP skin, and not a single issue. Thank you for all your hard work.
