    Bump

    CoreAVC sure does work well.

    So can anyone confirm if it is feasible? I know that hardware acceleration isn’t working, but I’m wondering if it SHOULD be working anyway.

    I know my hardware supports it, but it seems my OS does not. Can anyone confirm?

    in reply to: Nero 9: Seems to work but no Recording Devices #47936

    I took your advice and got a Vista32 driver for my South Bridge. I also reinstalled and upgraded nero.

    I’m not sure which fixed it, but its working fine now, as long as I run it as admin.

    I did a little more investigating.

    The file in question is 1920×1040 @ ~1,4180 KB/s

    In linux, which is also lacking hardware acceleration, I was able to play this particular file in only one player, with minimal success. I was dropping frames and with time the audio would go out of sync, but restarting from the same point would fix it temporarily. This is the only way I can play this particular file…

    However, I have no issues with another 1080p file which is also in an mkv file which is also containing an avc1 video in any player / os. Perhaps it is because this one was a more modest 1920×916 @ 1,040 KB/s.

    I guess that does’t really prove anything. I’m having trouble finding equivalent 1080p content to test my computers capabilities against.

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that it did.

    to get the best playback of x264, (the mkv’s) you will need to get http://www.coreavc.com/ which is not free but is much better

    Hmmm, I tried this, but not with MPC. Still this is software acceleration, and I’m wondering about hardware.

    or try downloading http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/ in ether case use media player classic from here http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=82303&use_mirror=superb-east&filename=mpc2kxp6490.zip&22646901
    you might also need ac3filter http://ac3filter.net/project/1/releases

    Pretty sure I tried that too. Perhaps it is just something about this file. As I mentioned I can play h.264 trailers at 1080p with no problem.

    Just to be clear, it sounds like you are saying hardware acceleration is not possible.
