    You will probably find that there is another video codec with a higher "Merit" that is being used, or attempting to be used - "ffdshow" is often a culprit.

    You can check by using GraphEdit to "Render a Media File" (the HD video that you are trying to view) and it will show you what codec is being used by default. Then use Radlight Filter Manager to reduce the merit below the filter you wish to use. More information on the steps involved is available here.

    Ok, now this really pisses me off, because I tried that yesterday and when I fired up MP and selected videos, it hung. I just tried it now and that appears to be working. (Networks. I hate networks.) Thanks.

    This is not possible, only on the bluray present subtitles can be selected. Same as above. Audio streams can never be selected apart from the merged ones. You'll have to use tools like the mentioned Media-Buddy to achieve that. Subtitles of local media can be placed into the same folder (with the same name) into the video file. You...

    Hi there, the rotation of the video depends on the renderer. I used EVR, joecrow MadVR. I installed MadVR and was able to see joecrow's results. The video 1080x1920.mp4 is played correctly, the video 1920x1080-mux.mp4 is not. It is rotated but the resolution is not correct. I've attached 6 screenshots, 3 with EVR and 3 with MadVR...
