Do you have a codec pack installed like KlLite? MPC seems to need them.
Probably need to config LAV like this
Whoops. The codec install is only if using MPC. MPC-HC has them built in.
But you can get to that screen in MPC-HC by pressin the letter O to go to options, internal filters, and clicking Audio Decoder at the bottom there.
Edit: Also, in v1.7.10 of MPC-HC:
Completely new Internal Audio Renderer:
Uses sanear project as backend
Requires Windows Vista or newer
Outputs sound through WASAPI (shared or exclusive)
Employs automatic channel downmixing
Provides stereo crossfeed processing option (for headphones)
Tries to preserve signal pitch when playing at custom rate (time stretching)
Note that you need to select the new renderer in options in order to use it
So to select it press O to get to options, audio renderer. Select exclusive mode also.
