All of a sudden MP has developed a problem with playback. Now when I click on a file it runs thru to the end in a second and - if a video - marks it as played. If a TV recording it does the same and then immediately deletes the recording. Been running this for years.
any help appreciated
Logs attached.

I guess I am alone here with this one. I have substituted VLC player and that works but not as well as I had hoped. Obviously the problem lies with the MP player but don't know what it is. Some conflict a windows update? a virus? I downloaded and did a clean install with the new beta release but that made no change.
Nobody with any clues as to what the problem could be?

    Hi
    I'm no expert but given that VLC does work, it could be a problem with the LAV filters and/or MPs EVR, there is some support for that in the logs as follows:-

    [2019-07-18 20:13:30,673] [2121b3c8] [2184] - failed to find MediaPortal - Audio Renderer filter!
    [2019-07-18 20:13:30,673] [2121b3c8] [2184] - SetupAudioRenderer: cycleDiff: 0.0000596312
    [2019-07-18 20:13:30,673] [2121b3c8] [2184] - SetupAudioRenderer: adjust bias to : 0.9999403724 - wait audio renderer to be available

    There are lots of those but I can't say if that is a cause of the problem or a consequence!:unsure:
    I also noticed there was to me some strange stuff in the DXdiag with the Nvidia GPU driver but again not sure if that is significant.

    When you did the fresh install of 1.23pre did you also re-install the LAV filters, the default is disabled so it may be worth a try for another install with it enabled. I would also strongly recommend a really clean install, i.e. after doing a "Full MP uninstall" also uninstall MySQL and delete the Team Media Portal folder in C:/Program Data and MySQL folders in both C:/Program Files and Program Data. On re-install MP will also download and install a new MySQL.
    Hope that is of some help, please let us know how it goes.

    Thanks. But now all of a sudden it works after I tried (and failed) to install MP 2 - it couldn't start the MP2 Service. Windows said the service started and then immediately stopped. Couldn't get it to start in services.msc either. Other posts recommend deleting the Program Data folder but when I was able to get MP1 back working I was loath to try anything else.
    So no idea why MP1 misbehaved in the first place but thankful it works now as VLC was not a useful replacement.

    Those entries in evr.log are normal (assuming you are *not* using MPAR as your Audio Renderer, which is also the normal situation).

    I have changer the audio renderer from default to MP. I hope that that will get around the problem

    I think that the convention is for the final release to be around 4 weeks after the pre-release, but this timetable is not rigid, so the final release might be earlier or later. If you still have your MP 1.27f (or older) installation available, you perhaps should continue using that until MP 1.28f is released. -- from CyberSimian in...

    Hi @azzuro, I don’t know what was wrong with loading onto my new HTPC. After many days of trying to get MePo to work, I’m afraid I gave up and jumped ship to Kodi - which worked first time without problems. After 10 years with Mediaportal, it was a huge shame to leave but I couldn’t get it to work at all with my new PC with integrated...
