Im not sure if this a bug or an intended feature. It had me confused anyway. So in the spirit of constructive feedback:

Have been playing with codecs. Trying different combinations of audio and video codecs.

I notice that the codecs can be changed in the settings menu item from within MP while MP app is running.

I also notice that codecs can be changed via the MP confiuration app when MP is not running.

But the specification of codecs in these 2 places appear independent. That is - if I set say Nvidia codec within MP settings then this does not get written into the config app when I close MP and open the config app.

This means there are two places where codecs can be specified and it is not obvious (to me anyway) which one is applied.

    Sorry to say, but really need more info(attach logs after you have set it in MP GUI) & explain which codecs you selected & which tat didn't save(last time i tested it worked)...

    Have rechecked system. It now works flawlessly just as ronilse and geov indicate.

    Maybe various codec swapping/comparisons had made my system unstable???????. ffdshow was involved.

    Anyway works perfectly here now.
