Still best player out there IMO. I use it alongside with potplayer, which has some additional/more advanced/more unnecessary ;) features concerning subtitles, capturing etc.

Huge advantage towards PP: MPC-HC comes with great default settings while PP (still) employs some filtering/ settings by default, which might help with low / unstable source PQ (-> yt clips, streaming). Not recommended for untouched PQ.
PP improved it's defaults over last years though, AFAICS.

@ vhwul62: right, no exclusive forum but apart from avsforum.com and pavilufs tutorial, there's a MPC-HC thread located @ doom9.org:

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=166689

There's also a LAV (built-in filters employed in MPC-HC), and madVR thread ,

the devs delivering all this great stuff active there as well (big thanks! )

Cannot but grant 10's to this product. Over the last few days I have tried KMPlayer, Potplayer and sofar have been using VLC Player. I had some issues with VLC Player, reason for me to check out alternatives. KMPlayer and Potplayer crashed regularly (grey window: 'not responding', or simply doing nothing at all, unable to close, except for stopping the process via the taskmanager). Uninstalled/re-installed, still the same.

I tried out MPC-HC and it performed well. Actually I could not get it to crash. Played Blu Ray, DVD, MP4, wmv immediately after each other, i.e. when MPC started with one movie/video I dropped another into it.
MPC Instantly switched to the new one. No delays, like with KMPlayer/Potplayer.
VLC one way or the other could not play .wmv files very well: starting off garbled and after a couple of seconds the video was displayed well. MPC: no issues.

Regret they do not have a decent forum, like most other players. Haven't discovered a snapshot functionality (camera). Think there is a way to create thumbnails, but a single shot snapshot would be great.

Except for that: perfect program!

Great program! I only use it to watch hd movies in better quality.

@Doomsday.a it's only because you are playing a 5.1 audio on your 2.0 speakers. You have to use a mixer (ffdshow audio decoder can do that)
Tuto part 1 & 2: see attached link

tips: add the volume filter to increase the sound when you playing a 5.1

I've report a bug in the 1.67 portable version 32 and 64bits. Video H264/aac in an FLV bucket start green screen.

Problem was note in 1.65.. 32 bits which I have gone back to.

Suggest further testing of new version (1.67..) is required.

blue2,

You do ask a very good question that I would like the answer to too. I'm not a software coder and don't know how code and keyloggers would work. However your question pushed me to ask if there would be detection's from other AV's, So I downloaded the installer and scanned it with Virustotal. Results are below:

https://www.virustotal.com/file/1ba4a348c516f0e7d511b238b0fa191f797723ccaeb2126be0994ba8c30a8df5/analysis/1355827111/

It's reported as completely clean, even KAV. I suggest you submit your detection report to
MPC-HC developers or even Kaspersky. I know it's a lot of hassle and you could just avoid it and go on, but it might help the developers, and give you peace of mind.

BlazeSeven,

Thanks for that reply, which actually will help me to clarify what my hasty post left out.

I've been using MPCHC for years without issue until this install. Second, perhaps instead of installing the zip file this time, I used the installer file which did write to the registry.

It may be a heuristic detection, but the question remains what keystrokes would MPHC need to monitor when the program is initialized (clicked on), but isn't running? It isn't a "virus" detection, it is a detection that MPHC is monitoring keystrokes.

I've been using Media Player Classic Home Cinema for years now and it has not been flagged by any
antivirus i've used. I'd trust MPC-HC and say it's a false positive detection. As an alternative you could download a portable zip version from MPC-HC website link below:

http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/downloads/

Zip versions should not write into the registry, so you might avoid getting flagged by KAV. Hope this helps.

Installed Media Player Classic Home Cinema 1.6.5 x86 version last night.

When I opened it the first time, KAV flagged it as a "keylogger" with various entries being written into the registry.

Anyone else seeing this and is there something in the app's initialization that is causing this?

This is microsoft fault, since they continue to update Dx 9 library yet foolishly doesn't include it to their Windows update, opting to ship with ancient Dx9 lib on their windows. Thing written with Dx9 usage is not compatible with Dx10 or 11, again, blame ms for that.

I wasn't exactly complaining. It just seems strange that a product should apparently insist on an OLD version of DirectX.

The references to "In order to run MPC-HC with no problems you must have at least Windows XP SP3 operating system, SSE capable CPU and the latest DirectX 9.0c runtime (June 2010). Install it regardless of the operating system, they all need it" are a bit misleading since the Microsoft install page linked above clearly says "Note that the DirectX Runtime (Direct3D, DirectInput, DirectSound) is not part of this package as it is included as part of the Windows operating system, and therefore cannot be installed or uninstalled. Updating the DirectX Runtime is achieved by installing the latest Service Pack or obtaining a newer version of Windows." If MPC-HC said, as Ai Haibara says, that you need to install a few older files for the product to work then that would make more sense than the suggestion that DirectX 9.0c is newer that DirectX 11.

Anyway. Update/downgrade (whatever) installed and MPC-HC is working. Thanks for the pointers.

banjo: Click on the "DirectX Runtime" (actually, the DirectX Web Updater), run it, and let it install whatever it believes you need. MPC-HC, as far as I know, generally looks for certain DirectX 9 components - which aren't included by default on Vista or higher; they only include a very basic set of DirectX 9 components. The DirectX Web Updater should install what you need.

Either that, or don't use the 'EVR' display/output modes in MPC-HC.

It seems to play most formats but it insists that I install "the latest version" of DirectX which it says is 9.04c. Doesn't seem to recognize DirectX 11 and give me a popup on every video startup and then plays it OK. Annoying. Probably delete it if I can't find a fix.

In my opinion MPC Home Cinema is imply the best video player for Windows! Combine MPC with the LAV Filters and madVR for the best video viewing experience available. I've been using it for many years and have no desire to use any other player.

HIGHLY recommended!
