A few of my movies are very blocky, and often have green squares when I play them. This seems to last most of the movie. I have a few hundred movies and the other ones work fine, how can I narrow down the problem to figure out what is causing it? I used mediainfo on the offending files too see if I can find any differences, but can't really find any. They video just says AVC format like the rest of my files so I don't know what is causing this.


I am running Shark x64 codec pack on Win7. I have had these same movies play fine in the past so the files themselves are ok.

Are the files comparable in size to files that are not blocky for the same length movie? It could be they are just over compressed.


How did you make the files?

You say "had these same movies play fine in the past" so what have you changed and or updated recently?


What player are you using? MPC-HC, WMP, etc.?


I've had this problem in the past with VC-1 but never AVC.

Yes they were L5.1 encoded files... for the moment I fixed it by disabling dxva and using divx/ffdshow. I have lost my hardware acceleration though.

It is my opinion that to many people have their head stuck in some dxva bubble that blinds them to the fact that all they want is proper playback. Forget dxva and enjoy playback as it was meant to be.


I can understand seeking dxva if your sytem is under powered and your graphics card supports it but if you can acheive proper playback by 'other means' then forget dxva and get on with watching your media content.
