    Hi,

    i would like to request a timer based "watched" recognition for external players. I'm using mpc-hc as external player and as soon as i close the player MP will flag the file watched, even if i just had mpc open for a second. Thats kinda annoying since i normally use a view layout that wont show "watched" content, but this forces me to always show also "watched" content, so i can flag it "unwatched" again after such wrong flagging.

    A simple and better way would be to time how long the external process was open and compare the time vs the selected % watched config time. I'm aware that u wont correctly get paused external files, but this method is still better than just detecting open/close of the external player.

    thx Andy




    PS: The reason i don't fully watch the file via external player is simple, often i just watch some minutes to get a idea if it is interesting or i just have to leave and want to continue later.

    Why don't you just configure MP to use the mpc-hc standalone filters and a good splitter like LAV and then use MP's internal player?

    Because i need to use madVR for correct colorspace and gamma output, also the default EVR don't support 10bit formats and the bicubic scaling suffers from more visible aliasing than the lanczos/spline scaling madVR offers.


    Thx Andy
