Hi all!
Since the installation of the falls creators update of win10 i have a big problem:
Whenever i start a video file (h264, mkv, bluray image) the sound of the movie starts, but the screen stays black until i press the win button on the keyboard. I already have tried the option "mediaportal always on top" and i have tried different codecs. Before the falls creators update everything worked perfectly.


I will upload the logfile as soon as possible!

I need help, thanks!

System spec: win 10 pro x64 1709 creators update / AMD Ryzen 1600 / 8Gb crucial 2133 ram /AMD HD 6450 / Samsung 960 evo nvme ssd 250 gb

    What type of file are you trying to upload?
    (You should have used the Watchdog tool option 1 or 2 to collect your log files, so the file should be a zip file... and there should be no problem with that.)

    In my opinion the problem is likely to be your codec settings. I recommend you try LAV video instead of ffdshow.

    Nobody any ideas? I already tried a codec pack, standard Microsoft codecs and mediaportal lav codecs. Everytime when i start a movie i can hear the sound, but get a black screen. Somtimes when i hit the windows key on the keyboard the start bar comes up and behind the bar the movie runs in full screen mode? Always on top i already tried......same problem. ...

    its not broadly released so why not just revert back?
    btw. never use codec packs if u not exactly know how or told else and pls do only one step after another or its damn hard to follow u.
    cheers

    I was working with the 7 codec pack for the last 10 years, and it worked good for me. I also think, that i know what settings i used there. As i said, before the creators update everything worked as desired. After the update the problem occured. Did not change any settings in windows or the codec.

    Is it possible that it has something to do with the new included NET Framework 4.7.1

    Don't want to roll back if there is a solution because sooner or later you have to install the creators update.

    Hi again guys!

    Right now i did a Rollback to Win10 1703 and everything works flawless again! So i blocked creators update for 365 days now. But sooner or later all win 10 users must update to 1709. i am pretty sure that i will not be the only one who has Problems with 1709 and mediaportal. Somewhere there is a big Problem with this combination. But right now i don't have the time and Motivation to try until it works
