@matijah

nvcuvid.dll (NVIDIA CUVID in LAV Video Decoder) crashes on my systems playing many newly encoded hevc files. Only option i had was to turn to dxva (copy back) in LAV Video decoder.

@RBX

And I thought that was only me who had the problem playing HEVC files encoded from VC-1 source so I had to uncheck the HEVC box from NVIDIA CUVID in LAV Video Decoder!

Hi. In case somebody would (still) want to equip: an old 32-bit Win. XP SP2 PC (like I needed to do), I HAD TO test, rather tediously... several old versions, since:

from v 0.60 on, "LAVVideo.ax" refuses to register, while the other components register alright (up to 0.67 anyway, = today).

So: 32-bits XP machine: up to v 0.59.1 only, for the VIDEO component and in my case...

LAV video decoder works for most media, but fails for some which were converted from VC-1 to HEVC.

@El Heggunte: thanks for the link but i downloaded the new version [0.61.1] posted today.

Thanks.

@ donttrythisathome: re-download from http://files.1f0.de/lavf/LAVFilters-0.61.zip
It's
because LAVFilters.Dependencies.manifest wass missing from the original zip for the 32-bit version.

@ Post by prijatelj.v: The crashes / issues you describe are the result of interferences/crack ups in the graph creation process. Before installing Lav, make sure Haali is deinstalled properly, also deactivate the internal filters of your softwareplayer for the formats you want to split/decode with LAV. In the LAV options theres an "Input formats" tab, you can select Raw LPCM-audio as well. To avoid a messed up graph building, set everything to LAV, do not use any further postprocessing filters.
You can provide yourself much better/faster performance than with tha Haali setup (its 6 years old, no bugfixes/updates), LAV is constantly improved by its developer Nevcairiel (THX btw :). For guides /troubleshooting I strongly recommend checking out the Doom9 Forum, the Lav- and other software developers post there and are very kind providing profound help and tipps :)

some things work great but...
LAV audio decoder crash...see here : http://www.zaslike.com/files/o7c7drzvll137u11l7un.jpg
GSpot
crash in rendering..see here : http://www.zaslike.com/files/tc3ps4y2j3i4te38v0pu.jpg
can
not be decoded (or do not see the function) for RAW video and uncompressed RAW audio,I consider very important for the (Subtitle Workshop 2.51)
I'm going back to the proven combination : ffdshow + Haali Media Splitter

Actually its faster than Haali for quite a while already. At least from what i recognized when i compared, few versions ago. Besides its better performance it delivers much more stream infos.

This is a major release in my opinion. Although the changelog contains few update information, it actually has numerous small updates included within since the last stable version. This version seems faster than the previous ones. LAV getting better with time. We may have to ditch Haali Media Splitter in coming days. LAV splitter is going to take over ;)
Thanks devs for this package!

Please ignore my previous comment, that problem happened because I usually overwrite the old versions of the DirectShow filters, instead of registering the new ones.

On Windows XP, Media Player Classic Homecinema may be unable to use LAV Filters for playing DVDs. Here is the workaround that I've found:

open MPC-HC (or MPC-BE), goto "Options", "External Filters", and then add "LAV Video Decoder", add Media Type "MEDIATYPE_DVD_ENCRYPTED_PACK", add Sub Type "MEDIASUBTYPE_MPEG2_VIDEO".

LAV Audio goes out of sync when connected to other ASF splitters, such as the GDCL WMV/WMA Parser. Besides, the MPEG-4 ALS decoder again has the problem that was fixed in revision 0.50.5-xxxxxx (it consumes 100% of the CPU-time on a Pentium-4, and freezes MPC-HC if the internal Audio Switcher is enabled).

Works great with very smooth video on my old pentium pro PC with Nvidia card. I have had problems with the LAV Audio decoder on 6 channel AC-3 audio. Audio volume changes seem exaggerated when audio goes from soft to load. This problem is rare and is not noticeable on most audio tracks so it's not a big problem but I have found that Divx decoder does not have the same problem.
