I tried out J.River Media Centre and MadVR makes the quality of playback look amazing. I then proceeded to try to use MadVR with MPC-HC but all I get is stutter. I really like my Mediabrower + MPC-HC as an external player combo and would not like to change it.


Thanks.

A lot of people like JRiver because they do all the setup and configuration for you. Then you pick between a couple of settings (Standard, High Quality, etc) depending on how powerful your system is. They only allow the program to use/install known working filters/programs - and it is easy to switch between them to find something that works. With MPC-HC + MediaBrowser you have to figure out what works and how to set it up. Some folks have done that for you and created guides. I think the Asassin guide at the top (sticky) shows how to set up everything in your combination. Of course the specific hardware you have affects things too, so it takes some trial and error even with a guide.

Agreed. The quality of MPC-HC + MadVR is very good indeed, but I also get terrible stutter with this. CPU usage jumps to 70-80%, so not maxed out, but the video jumps all over the place. Anyway aware of a way to smooth this out (without chucking extra hardware at it!)

There is a thread called "MadR - LAV" or something like that. See if you can find it by searching. There are a lot of tips on how to set things up, and instructions on how to overclock the nVidia.

Ok, thanks. I'll check it out. Using a Radeon HD4670 myself, but hopefully some of it will still be relevant.

I just switched out my two year old 4670 for a Nvidia Asus 440 1 GB GDDR5. It is $80 well spent and I have very good video improvement with MPC-HC and 7MC TV. Of course for MPC-HC in addition to MadVR, the LAV splitter and LAV audio I am using LAVCUVID.


Of course once again I have benefited from following the advice of Renethx.

There are two places you can specify full screen. The one you want is here, uncheck it. Or it is under Playback-Fullscreen depending on the version of MPC-HC you are using.

Just another quick question. MadVR works beautifully but if i forward to another part in the movie it become unwatchable. Any suggestions on what I can do to stop this?


EDIT: Also, how can i get Lav Audio to work in MPC-HC? I have it set to prefer in the External Filters section but MPC-Hc still uses the Microsoft DTV-DVD audio decoder.

Finally got Madvr to work properly without stuttering in mpc-hc. Another quick question though, I can I stop it from automatically opening the movies in full screen?

Are you running Nvidia or ATI (Nvidia I expect)? I'd love to get smooth playback using MadVR on ATI, but it doesn't seem possible without a really fast CPU.

I'm running a Nvidia 9400gt, not the best card out there but it gets the job done. The only reason I can run MadVR is because of LAV CUVID which uses CUDA.
