Now Im totally confused about what settings I had before and how it went wrong if I had not touched the settings smile
Anyway, now its ok, thanks once again. Back to watching the movie in fullscreen again.

Hmm, I feel stupid now that I havent tried this. This solved the problem, thanks for the really fast feedback.
Its funny, because I can turn it ON again and now its also fine, so right now I cant even reproduce this issue.

It would be interesting to know what caused this and why the issue disappeared after turning the feature OFF, (then back ON.)

Hey,

Im a long time SVP user and its working fine with pot player.
I recently updated SVP but Im not sure if this is what started the following problem. I also had win10 update, not even god knows what that did.

Problem description:
If I start a video and switch it to fullscreen, then after a few seconds the video gets black bars around the video from all sides so left, right, top bottom, which then gets outer lighting, but that doesnt matter I guess. A week ago this was not happening.

If I start a video in window, or Im switching back to windowed mode, then the black border disapperas, so in window mode its working as expected.

If I switch to fullscreen mode, then its scaling perfectly for a few seconds, so video is really fullscreen, but then the video gets the black border and thats the moment when the "SVP:playing at 143.856 / Automatic" text appears in bottom left corner. I attached 2 screenshots about fullscreen and windowed mode.

I tried to look around in settings, but all seems fine: Under video settings it is: keep aspect ratio and keep normal size. To be honest I didnt touch the settings before the problem started. Im sure its not the video file either because videos that were previously fine are also gets resized now. I also checked the SVP log, but I cant see anything bad. I have 3 monitors, and behavior is the same on all of them.

Does anybody have any idea?

Thanks in advance

aaaaand.. when does the black friday promotion end?

Hey,

I bought SVP pro a week ago and Im already using it on 2 PCs. Im thinking about using SVP on a 3rd (and meybe on a 4th) PC as well.
Recently because of the black friday promotion Im wondering if I can buy a full 2nd SVP pro. (instead of going for the plus license which is 10$ per PCs.)
Can I buy a 2nd one? So under same mail address with same credit card?

Bonus question:
A friend asked me if I can buy an SVP for him. So can I buy a 3rd SVP to my friend with my credit card by giving HIS mail address? Altogether this would mean 3 SVP pro, where all the 3 would be bought with 1 credit card and 2 SVP is under my mail address and 1 would be under friend's mail address.


Thanks

Ah! You're probably running VLC as admin. Don't do this! smile

Ok, so this is driving me crazy.... but it seems I figured out what is  happening:
Running the vlc exe (2.2.8 x64) from totalcmd, drag and drop mkv file -> not working
Running the mpc exe (1.7.16 x86) from totalcmd, drag and drop mkv file -> not working
Running same vlc from windows file manager -> WORKING
Running same mpc from windows file manager -> WORKING

I spent some time thinking about wtf is going on. This was the point where I checked again what you wrote and then it hit me: It seems, the problem was caused by using totalcmd in admin mode. And runing mpc/vlc from admin-mode-totalcmd will make SVP fail. I didnt know this correlation.

Thanks for the tip. I spent HOURS configuring, installing, uninstaling, installing, uninstalling, configuring, forum reading, uninstalling, guide reading, installing.........
Now its time to start testing, playing.

What VLC version shall I use? x86? x64? v2.x? v3.x?

Hey,

After testing the free version of SVP for a couple of days with the only supported MPC-HC player, I decided to buy SVP, because I want to use it with VLC, Kodi and also with Plex. Both the free and the paid version is working fine with MPC-HC. 24p is converted to 60p, video is fluent.
I had a hard time making it work but I managed to do it.

Problem is, I cant make it work with VLC (v2.2.8 x64). I followed the installation guide on the webpage and I did all the steps. I set the variables, folder permissions, the VLC settings, I can see the Vapoursynth at video/filters etc but still no luck.

Here is the event log:

So SVP recognized VLC, It thinks, its doing the frame interpolation (hovering tooltip on SVP icon says playing at 59,9405 FPS [x[5/2]) but the movie is choppy, laggy like a 24p movie. On the performance monitor in SVP it doesnt show anything on the first graph called SVP index, while it did with mpc-hc. I suspect, problem is either with the environment variables or with the folder permission but I did both as per the guide. even "vspipe" works in the cmd window:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\Program Files\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\WINDOWS\System32\OpenSSH\;C:\Program Files (x86)\SVP 4\mpv64

I even tried this, as mentioned in the guide:

In some rare cases the PYTHONPATH environment variable is not enough for some reason and you'll get VapourSynth engine error - possibly corrupted installation error in the VLC's messages log. This can be fixed by copying all the files from SVP 4/mpv64 into VLC's folder.

Can somebody help ? Thanks in advance
