Could someone please enlighten me how to accomplish this.
1. Get and install:
2. Go to Zoom Player's options menu (Ctrl+O in latest beta), select "Filter Control" from the left, select the "Customized Media Playback" tab at the very top, then select the "Settings & Renderers" tab below. From there:
- Check the "Enable Customized Media Playback" tab
- Check the "Show Customized Media Graph creation errors" tab (for debugging until you're sure it's working right)
- Pick Overlay Mixer as the default rendering filter (or VMR9 if you prefer, though Overlay is usually faster)
3. Select the "Source Filters & Splitters" tab, and under the "Audio / Video Splitters" box on the right, double click on "MPEG2 Transport" and select the OpenSource MPEG Splitter predefined profile. (When selecting filters in this step and the next steps, it's a good idea to click the "Verify" button to make sure the filters are properly installed and registered.) If you're not using the latest ZP beta, it may not be predefined and you may need to select it manually from the filter list by removing all the listed filters, clicking "Add Filter" and selecting it from the list. If you are playing non-transport stream MPEG-2 files as well, such as from PVR software, do the same for "MPEG2 Program", otherwise leave it alone.
4. Move to the "Audio & Video Decoders" tab. From there:
- Double click "AC3" under "Audio Decoders" and select the "AC3filter" predefined profile (this is the default in the latest beta)
- (Optional if you are playing non-transport MPEG-2 files, probably unnecessary) Double click "MPEG2 Audio" under "Audio Decoders", remove all existing filters, click "Add Filter" and select "InterVideo NonCSS Audio Decoder for Sasem".
- Double click "MPEG2 Video" under "Video Decoders", remove all existing filters, select "Add Filter" and pick "InterVideo NonCSS Video Decoder for Sasem". [edit 6/30/04 -- do not add ffdshow or any other filters after Sasem's, this will screw up the deinterlacing]
5. Load up a TS, TP, or plain old MPEG2 file. If you have multiple subchannels in the transport stream, right click on the ZP window while playing and from the menu select the "Stream Selector" option. This will bring up a sub-menu with all the possible audio and video streams from the OpenSource MPEG Splitter. You will also probably need to set up AC3filter, accessible through the "Filter Properties" tab while the file is playing, to select SPDIF output or any number of downmix options depending on your HTPC setup.
