Setting up MPC-HC
- a.k.a. Media Player Classic - Home Cinema
- version used: 1.9.14 (02 July 2021)
- developer's web site
SVP can work with MPC-HC via two methods:
- AviSynth Filter ("AVSF"): modern and fast, supports 10-bit and HDR, doesn't hang on seeks.
- ffdshow raw video filter: legacy, use it only if you have issues with AVSF.
- Open View -> Options main menu item
- In Internal Filters section
- Click on Internal LAV filter settings -> Video decoder and choose DXVA2 (copy-back) mode
- Open External Filters section
- Click Add Filter... then select AviSynth Filter in the list and press OK
- Select AviSynth Filter and set Prefer mode
- Double-click the "AviSynth Filter" line, ensure Enable remote control is selected.
- Click OK and close Options window
- Choose the right video renderer:
- Open Playback -> Output section and set Output -> DirectSHow Video to:
- madVR: in all cases except very low-end video card (such as old Intel's integrated GPUs)
- Enhanced Video Renderer (custom presenter): for maximum performance and compatibility, but you'll loose 10-bit and HDR support
For the ffdshow just replace "Avisynth Filter" with ffdshow raw video filter in the above steps.
How to check
- List of filters in use should be like this:
- Useful information about current renderer stats can be seen with Ctrl+J hot key.
- True HDR or high quality tone mapping: AviSynth Filter + madVR
- Compatibility HDR tone mapping: ffdhsow + any video renderer + SVP's "Try to recover HDR colors"
