Hey guys, I just installed MPC-hc yesterday following this guide, configuring it as an external player to Media Browser. The LAV filters show up in the filters menu when playing video, audio is bitstreamed, etc. Two questions/issues I'm encountering:
1. When a blu-ray rip with DD starts getting played, I hear a loud pop sound before the audio starts playing (this is every video file w/DD it seems) The specific blu-ray rip actually kept popping/skipping randomly throughout the first few minutes I was watching the file until the audio disappeared completely. Video was fine and smooth. What would be causing the audio issues?
2. I tried using madvr and I had hw acceleration set to none since I only have an intel card right now. Playing the a 1080P blu-ray MKV it seemed to be dropping frames. It definitely wasn't smooth. I have 8 GB of RAM and a quad core intel processor. I thought the processor would be strong enough to do madvr w/out acceleration? Video was smooth going through EVR
Also, is there a way to
a) prefer the surround sound track always, if two tracks are present
b) "load" subtitles so I can enable them with the remote, but don't 'activate' them unless I tell it to? Basically, I want subtitles available always, I just don't want them displaying by default.
