The internal filter H264/AVC (DXVA) in Media Player Classic - home cinema is NOT workin' now on Windows 7.

It was working before,... that was the only way the full HD 1080i videos played well on my PC... with ffdshow video decoder the Full HD videos(in H.264 format) don't play well, 'cause it requires more resources than the internal filter I think... Can somebody help me pleaseee... :)


DirectVobSub (VSFilter) 2.40
on 11 June 2011, reviewed by: MikeN


I had brand new Windows7 64-bit HomePremium OS. It has all the latest bells-and-whistles for home users Microsoft has to offer. Except subtitles in Windows Media Player (version 12).

Doh! I was really surprised WMP still didn't support SUB/SRT subtitle files out of the box.

I tried "everything" and finally gave up. Downloaded VLC video player and it supported subtitles out of the box. It would have been OK for me except that subtitle fonts looked a bit ugly and blocky when a video was in full screen mode. I guess I could have tweaked it somehow to look better but I was just looking for a solution, not tweaks.

Then I came across DirectVobSub 2.40.x 32bit version (WMP in 64bit Windows7 is by default 32bit application. Weird, I know). Installed DirectVobSub, launched WMP and voila! Nice looking subtitles out of the box. That's what I call a solution.

Thx DirectVobSub developers. You have done something MS should learn from you.

You make it sound so easy. =o) I have Windows7 64-bit HomePremium OS as well as Windows Media Player (version 12). Downloaded DirectVobSub-2.40.3093_x64 which didnt work and then I read your review about WMP being 32 bit by default (which is why Im replying to you).

I uninstalled the above mentioned version and installed vsfilter.2.39_nt instead (since I figured I dont know what Im doing so Ill let the installer do it).Under my Program Files (x86) there is a folder called DirectVobSub and within that folder are only two things. An uninstall.exe and a vsfilter.dll file.

Is the vsfilter.dll file supposed to be placed somewhere else? If so, could you please tell me where? I got lost reading the help guides.Your prompt response and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Local Subtitles for WMP 1.5
on 08 June 2011, reviewed by: Rany


I say bad as I have no more appropriate word to describe a non-working, non-documented whatsoever program. Installed on a freshly installed Win 7 64bit, no 3rd party codecs installed apart from Haali matroska splitter. First installed the 64bit version, checked the "make WMP64 bit default", launched WMP, surprise! 32 bit version launched.

Went to WMP64bit version and launched this one, plug-ins manager says "Local Subtitles for WMP" installed, alas, could not get it to display any of my (srt) subtitles along with the movie (same name, same directory of course).

Some help from author would come handy, but support is not available at the moment.

Windows Media Format 11 Runtime
on 07 June 2011, reviewed by: Vieze Man


You'd better teach how to retrieve the windows media format runtime from the media player packages designed for any specific platform. That'll probably give a lot less errors.

Just download the media player package for your specific OS version and unpack it. One of the files is the wmfdist11.exe file which you are after. Unpacking is done with Total Commander (Alt+F9, unpack specific file), or any other utility capable of unpacking .exe files.

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.1.0
on 04 June 2011, reviewed by: L5G


I just downloaded the K-Lite Mega Codec and have already made use of it. I have already found that it has fixed problems and given me support for everything I need. With the K-Lite Mega Codec, I will be shocked to ever again find a media file that I cannot play on my computer.

I would recommend this to anybody. The K-Lite Mega Codec is essential for any user on the Internet. This is worth downloading, no matter how large the file size, no matter how long it takes to download, and no matter how bad people claim it to be.

Any of those that are hesitant to download the K-Lite Mega Codec, I strongly recommend you download it.

Ive used k-lite mega for a year or so with no problems....
But theres something wrong with the 1.16 mega and the 2.34 versions.

I had to system restore on one machine to clear up regsvr.exe and activemovie window problems on XP Pro SP2 and the machine i'm on now is gonna need the same treatment i think. Mega pack 1.03 is fine.

@Pavithran, it is possible, see "mpc/help/command line swithces". You edit(or add new)"open with"-command for the certain file type. Ie.in XP open: Explorer/Tools/Folder Options/File Types/AVI File, press "Advanced".

I only wish that mpc could open DVD-image files (ie. iso, img,..) without having to mount the file (or installing NERO). If anyone knows a trick, please tell:)(VLC does it, I know)

on 28 May 2011, reviewed by: Raven


I have to say that I 'm Having the same issues ...
I Installed a pack of codecs and it had the new version and didn't work ...

So i Instaled the 2.39 version and it works like a charm ...
Hopefully, They can resolve this minor issue ...

Because if I have to upgrade the pack it means that all codecs will be updated and running, but if thios doesn't, I have to install a older version, which $uck$, but it's the only way ..
Thre's anyway we could contact the developer ?


Freemake Video Converter
on 28 May 2011, reviewed by: djb247365


This is probably the best converter I've ever used. Really simple and works great. However, as of version, my files are not converting at all. Apparently from what I understand this was an accidental release. With that said, if you use this, go back to the version prior to this one and everything will work smoothly.

It would be nice if Freemake's website didn't show as a comment on every file that is encoded. That should definitely be changed in a future update. Otherwise, this is good software and I'll stick with until something better comes along.


MediaCoder r5
on 28 May 2011, reviewed by: JSDReg22


the interface is a mess, really counter-intuitive,
it's completely opposite to all standard interfaces that we see in other similar GUI's,

The wizard setup is great, and really thought out, explains many things of the application's settings, and really guides the user what they want the program to do..... but then the program finally loads.... what a mess.... hundreds of boxes and settings exposed to the user....

the entire GUI needs re-structuring,

i would recommend

Fairuse Wizard,

MEGui (a learning curve for sure, but a powerful GUI none the less)

Xvid4PSP (quite good, the recent 5.x.x versions have come a long way)

AVIDemux (more of an editing tool, but still good functions concerning conversion possibilities)

i say again, MediaCoder needs a GUI that has the kind of thinking that went into the programs setup wizard.

Finally it works! Such an easy fix. That being said, has anyone had trouble with the sound? I can watch my videos through the HP quickplay, but I get no sound.

The other thing is that if I leave the files as ASX and move them into my Picasa 3 I can now watch them. Again, the issue is that I have no sound.

So close and yet so far.

Thanks for your help and it's a great site. I have been here before but never commented.


Same issue with .mp4 video generated by a D-link DCS-2210 camera. On W7, I can easily read the video but no sound. Audio codec is G.276. Any idea?

FFDShow MPEG-4 Video Decoder 2011-05-12
on 20 May 2011, reviewed by: spoozum


To make it work:

1. You must have the right version depending on what player you use. A 64bit-player needs the 64bit-version of ffdshow, and 32bit-player needs 32bit version. This (sometimes) means the installation of both 32- and 64-bit versions to make all players work with ffdshow.

2. You need to set the priority to MAX in the ffdshow-setup. To do this, you must run ffdshow-configuration in administration-mode (right-click the setup in menu-bar and run 'as administrator'), then alter the priority-bar. Do this at all places / at both 32-bit and 64-bit versions to be sure.

Don't blame me if this is not official way 8-)

on 19 May 2011, reviewed by: Pavithran


Very good but still,sometimes,I experience lagging when I'm watching AVI vids.I used the same file to be played in WMP and I dont see any lags.Media Player Classic is awesome.Fast responding unlike WMP which takes a while to play the song (maybe 2-3 sec or so..) but media player classic starts right away.I love that.

And there is another hiccup.The "Add to Playlist" option is not available for the media player classic.If there is one,things would be much easier.

Good luck,Your Awesomeness.


Adobe Media Player 1.8

The player in direct link, or official mirror, is a version 1.7 of itself. I have the Creative Suite CS5 and it really contain the version 1.8 of player (Build 600929):http://www.4shared .com/file/K1If5YJL/adobe_media_player.html.

The player was descontinued, and would be good to have a copy of the latest version, for it is considered an good or best player, same in low definition videos quality. Support the following formats: MOV, MP4, MP4V, M4V, 3GP, 3GPP2, 3G2, F4V, FLV, and SWF natively. The performance is variable, depending of the processor.

Adobe makes their programs based in processor Intel (I can run this it program in one AMD Athlon XP, same being an CS5 integrant program - based in Intel SSE2 instruction). The version in this site is the 1.7, and it not enter in this notice. Read more in wikipedia.

Good idea, but the net framework makes the software a no-go for me. I would really like to see the developers get rid of that requirement.

Freemake, however much I try to use, defies me. It is still way behind the other free Convertor X Media recode, now even better than Win Avi.

DFX Audio Enhancer 9.302
on 18 May 2011, reviewed by: SkyBlaze


Ever wondered how to make your speakers louder?
Make you audio clearer? Or have super-hi bass?

DFX Audio Enhancer is your road to a whole new listening pleasure. Giving you whole loads of options to choose for your audio (bass, ambient, fidelity, 3DSurround, Dynamic Boost), it even comes with skins to suit your taste!

DFX Audio Enhancer REALLY does improve audio. Although only music players, it is very effective. In other words, DFX IS MAGIC!

I hope that FXSound will release another version, but this time altering the WHOLE audio output of a computer, for eg. When viewing vids in browser or even enhanced game SFX.

DFX Audio Enhancer all the way! Go go go~

FFDShow MPEG-4 Video Decoder 2011-05-12
on 14 May 2011, reviewed by: Sentosa


I downloaded the ffdshow software recently and read through the instructions, still did not find any info how to apply it.

Do I need to select the video to play through the ffdshow software, or it is not necessary at all to open and run this software as the programme once installed, will be effective in the background ?

If you insist on playing back videos that are encoded in codecs that have jpeg-trash in them or are distorted from being encoded at a low ksec, then you will find this program a definite blessing.

Not only does it have an option to run directly with Media Player Classic and do block-deinterleaving and other pre- and post- production outputs that can blur and filter out video artefacts but the codec is also a video encoder allowing you to encode multiple formats including .AVI using WMV XviD DivX Mp4 and several other popular formats as its backboard.We are rapidly entering an age where a video codec is not so much based on the quality it can compress a video but the quality of its output through pre- and post- filters that clean it before it plays it back to be viewed by an audience.

Modern XviD already has a pop-up that appears in your taskbar to clean your video by adding interleave and noise to remove artefacts.FFDShow does just that and can work with a large variety of video playback software and ultimately any video format to clean the video before being seen, Media Player Classic just being one of the programs it can work directly work.

You owe it to yourself to examine this incredible combination codec and filter that cleans and removes artefacts from your videos as they play back notwithstanding what video codec they were originally encoded in.I am rating it Very Good, not Excellent, because the interface is HUGE and may appear cumbersome and complex to some, such as myself. bot you in james natasha go thed ese we faot
