LAV Filters are a set of open-source DirectShow filters, aimed to eventually replace the better part of the playback chain required to play all and any modern media. LAV Splitter is a Souce Filter/Splitter required to demux the files into their separate elementary streams.
- Installer: The installer does now backup DirectShow registry settings before overwriting them, allowing uninstall to restore them
- NEW: Support for ProRes in MKV
- Fixed: Opening AviSynth scripts with LAV Splitter which used DirectShowSource to load LAV Splitter again caused a deadlock
- Fixed: Audio-only AviSynth scripts did not show a duration
- Fixed: Cue Sheets with directives with empty parameters could cause a crash
- Fixed: AVC1 video streams without SPS/PPS in the configuration record did not decode properly
- Fixed: Decoding H.264 streams with a resolution change using the DXVA2 Copy-Back decoder could crash
- Fixed: YUV->RGB conversion produced the wrong output for the last line of odd-height 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 files
- Changed: LAV Audio offers more alternate output configurations to the audio renderer if the audio renderer refuses our preferred format
- Fixed: Decoding AC3 audio with corrupted audio frames could cause unnecessary format changes to occur and disrupt playback
- Fixed: Decoding DTS audio on a CPU without SSE2 support could crash on some streams

This is one of the main codec that comes installed with Zoom Player and it works well.

LAV for me, is hands down, a far better alternative to FFDShow. Both the Audio & Video filters work great. That coupled with MPC-HC, ac3 FIlter, & MadVR, makes one seriously good media package. LAV continues to improve, and it plays back almost every different type of codec I can think of. I'm hoping maybe they'll think of adding an equalizer, along with the audio filter. I don't know how possible that is, but it's something to certainly be considered. I'm very happy running these filters on my system in a portable setting. Highly recommended.

After installed, broke subtitles sync. I use SubtitlePlayer on WinXP.

The LAV filters work great. They're a really good alternative to FFDShow. At some point, I expect these to replace FFDshow. The only area I would like to see improvement in, is the the audio decoder. While it does work just fine, I would love to see some kind of built-in equalizer w/ presets at some point. I think that would come in handy for a lot of users because most people use either MPC-HC or PotPlayer. MPC-HC has no equalizer feature, and while PotPlayer does have one, it's extremely weak. Until such a thing happens, I'll stick with using the FFDShow audio decoder for the time being. For everything else, LAV works brilliantly. Definitely recommended.

The way forward in audio and video decoding. These filters, along with MPC-HC are perfect for my needs.
