    Seems I spoke too soon, I'm still seeing de-interlacing problems with Cyberlink decoder 8.4.0.330 and Cat9.5 with DXVA enabled, so I've had to disable it.

    I might try downgrading to Cat8.5 sometime to see if it works OK with that but MP uses less than 5% CPU on my Client with Live/Recorded TV anway, so it's not really worth worrying about.

    Apparantly I too am having poor reading skills...


    One question, though, what about MOV files in e.g. Online Videos as they can't be renamed before streaming? I have relatively limited knowledge about different video formats and containers. Is DXVA important also for MOVSD or only for h.264?

    I'm a new mediaportal using and currently using Windows 7 x64, but not sure how to best set up codecs.

    I'm debating whether to use the approach as outlined in this thread (but it seems to apply to all versions of windwos and i'm aware that windows 7 has a lot more inbuilt codecs) or to go with this windows 7 method outlined here.

    Ultimate Guide To Codecs For Windows 7 Media Center | Windows 7 News

    ie If i set up the codecs to play properly in windows media centre will that mean they are setup to play in mediaportal?

    Thanks

    Hoborg, you know if is possible to do Dolby True HD to DTS convertion with some freely available filters and if you can include this option in SAF?

    I have this to use with BDs with Arcsoft TT. It's really unusual this kind of audio packed with the video files we're used to play, but if it's possible, I think it would be a nice feature to have.

    OK, I tried playing Gametrailers in the browser and it works, IE worked out of the box with no problems, Firefox showed the same behaviour as MP but after installing WMP plugin it works too, so Codecs should be present and working, but not in MP, why is that? :confused:

    with regards to aac decoding.
    im still using saf3.47 (bc i use MP1.0.2), but i am using ffdshow video/audio and ac3filter with saf
    i see latest beta you went back to monogram, presumably because a user had stuttering live tv with ffdshow
    i think ffdshow should still be used for videos:aac, because it supports multichannel aac properly
    i think monogram should be used for live tv:aac, because it works better with live tv, and also there are no multichannel tv aac broadcasts (they use ac3 for multichannel HDTV)
    anyways, that's my opinion.

    Good point... :) Thanks

    Maybe you could add this info about DXVA being the reason to rename the files, in the first post.

    Online Videos (apple trailers) are h.264 and you only need SAF to watch them (no need to install qt alternative).

    If you have MOV from camera etc, you need to install QT alternative +MediaLooks QT Source direct show filter (+ reinstall SAF) and rename them to MOVSD to watch them.

    What exactly you want to do? I didnt think that is possible do it in real time, so you need to use some video editing software to convert Dolby True HD to DTS. Xvid4PSP didnt work here?

    That is question to Online Videos i think :)
