"until 0.72, there is a huge delay playback from rewinding a MP4 video files, and it doesn't occur in 0.71"
Same here, I'll stick with the 0.71 so far.



Sep 17, 2018 Version: 0.72 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 2/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Best codec i have used for years with MPC-HC until 0.72, there is a huge delay playback from rewinding a MP4 video files, and it doesn't occur in 0.71. Rewind while the video is playing with no notable delay is very important for my daily use is why i can only rate 0.72 'Ease of use' 4 stars. Since the issue i had revert back to 0.71 for the ease of use.

Being the curious techie I am, I tried the nightly build and for some reason, my videos have slow seek issues. Once I went back to the stable build, I can seek through my video files with ease. Not sure what has changed, but I'll continue to look into this, and stick with the stable version for now.

A great Windows DirectX filter supporting virtually every audio video and container format I use it with mpc-be but it works with all modern players
The only issue I have is that hevc hardware acceleration doesn't work with intel quicksync it does work with dxva2 and d3d11 😶

Well, that's a surprise!
.ax is a DirectShow filter.
The documentation doesn't mention anything about making a direct call to them with "OpenConfiguration" as a passed argument.
That's pretty clever, like a batch file that calls itself as a reg file.
I've never run the installer, just extracted the component files. Didn't think to look at install_script.iss.

Of course there is GUI - just go to LAV filters configuration folder and run it, side to this whenever filter is active it can display icon on Taskbar - just activate it (Enable System Tray Icon).

LAV-Filters don't have a GUI for setup.
What is the source of the screenshot?

Happy to report that LAVFilters 0.68.0 stable doesn't crash nvcuvid.dll version 7.17.13.6200 from 362.00 whql drivers and NVIDIA CUVID in LAV Video Decoder can be used again.

@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...



.



Dec 27, 2015 Version: 0.59.1 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



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

Apr 21, 2014 Version: 0.61 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



@El Heggunte: thanks for the link but i downloaded the new version [0.61.1] posted today.
Anyway, the batch files from the .zip folder of the link you post works all fine.
Thanks.



Mar 7, 2014 Version: 0.61.1 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 10/10



@ 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.



Mar 6, 2014 Version: 0.61.0 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I only report an issue. I recently download 0.61 release and new batch files are impossible to install into system32. I need it because i play some 32bit application.

@ 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 :)



Aug 24, 2013 Version: 0.58.2 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



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



Jun 23, 2013 Version: 0.58 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



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.


May 30, 2013 Version: 0.57 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



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!



Apr 10, 2013 Version: 0.56 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



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.


Nov 28, 2012 Version: 0.54 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



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".



Nov 27, 2012 Version: 0.54 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



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).


Jul 15, 2012 Version: 0.51.2 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



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.


Nov 21, 2011 Version: .40 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Only if it would have supported Intel Quick Sync for Video Decoding

the best splitter for mpc-hc and htpc's !
