7.7.0 (Sep 10, 2011)
My first review is (below) but I'm going to have to change it now after a little more testing. Looks like I'm going to have to go back to version 7.1 of K-lite mega codec pack. Again, I'm using Windows XP Professional. Here's what KLMCP 7.7 is now doing wrong using MPC 6.4 (KLMCP version 7.1 works perfectly by the way)...
My standard desktop resolution is 1024x768x32 bits. In MPC 6.4, in "Options", "Playback", "Change fullscreen resolution" I have set to 1280x1024x32bits. Also, Right-click the video, go to "Video frame" and click "Stretch to frame" to set that option.
When I watch a video full screen now, by double clicking the video or pressing Alt-Enter, MOST of my videos are now no longer stretched to the edges of my screen. Almost all my videos are now severely letter boxed. Also, BIG PROBLEM, when I go full screen with the video the numeric keypad (arrow keys) now no longer work at all to manually stretch the video full screen. Ouch!!
Again, I'm going to uninstall version 7.7 and go back to version 7.1 because that still works perfectly with Win XP. I'll still leave my rating at 5 stars because of all the hard work you guys do!!
My original review is here:
I was using version 7.1 with no problems but I decided to give this one a try. Everything is great EXCEPT it now comes up with a pop-up saying that version 6.4 of Media Player Classic is going to be removed in the future.
I, and millions of people like me, are still using Windows XP Professional and have no intention of "upgrading" to Windows 7 in the near future. I use "full screen mode" (by pressing Alt-Enter, or double clicking the video) and also enable the option "Stretch to fullscreen" and MPC 6.4 (with Win XP) works PERFECTLY with these options and MPC-HD 1.2 and 1.5 do not.
I boot up my computer to 1024x768x32bits for surfing the web and everything else and then ONLY have MPC 6.4 change resolution to 1280x1024x32bits when I double-click a video and make it go full screen. When I stop watching the full screen video (by pressing the ESC key, or double clicking the video), again MPC 6.4 goes back to my standard 1024x768 resolution as it should PERFECTLY. However MPC-HD 1.2 and 1.5 do NOT go back into 1024x768 mode after I press the ESC key to exit full screen.
I guess what a lot of us are saying out here (bottom line) is PLEASE do not take away MPC 6.4!! There is ABSOLUTELY no reason for it!! Get rid of that pop-up that says something like "We are going to remove MPC 6.4 in the future". There is ABSOLUTELY no reason to remove it!! For Windows XP users MPC 6.4 works fantastically well and I (and others) hate how MPC-HD now has 4 different options now that we have to set to 1280x1024 when going to full screen mode and MPC 6.4 just has one option to set, "Full Screen resolution 1280x1024x32bits"..
Sorry for the long diatribe and I'm going to give you the full 5 stars because K-lite Mega 7.7 works great (and you allow us to uncheck the new toolbar option very easily), but PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE MPC 6.4 for those of us that use Win XP and still want to use it.
