This hasn't been updated on SourceForge for a couple versions now. I like to get the standalone filters to go with the player but all that's available now is for version 1.7.9 along with its accompanying older version player. This new version player also no longer plays well with Shark007's codecs, which I use on my home theater system PC. The player now crashes on DVD movie play right off the bat and the AC3 audio on any video file has a funny noise that pops up in the background off and on, and may or not be related to the Shark007 codecs package install. I have now switched to MPC-BE instead, which works well with Shark007 codecs. The only thing this player has going for it now is the subtitle download capabilities, of which MPC-BE sorely lacks, so I keep MPC-HC on hand just in case I need to download a subtitle file for a movie if needed, although I could just do that directly online to Subscene, Subscene has never failed to provide a subtitle file for a movie, especially for foreign language parts only.

Unless you're using K-lite codec pack, look elsewhere for a player. As mentioned above, MC-BE works well, and VLC payer is another option, that has most all the internal codecs you would most likely need.

3 stars, but only being that it could work well with K-lite codec pack, a codec pack I personally don't care to use

Went back to MPC 1.6.2. Later versions have no center channel sound. Couldn't find an option to set to 2.1 stereo. Guess the new folks at MPC assume everyone has 5.1 theater speakers for their rig.

Once the original developer left, versions since 1.6.2 have been bells, whistles and tinkering more than anything else.

Even though I have personally switched to the MPlayer/SMPlayer combo, I give this player 4 stars. Installed with the Mega Codec Pack it should play almost anything, if not everything. The only drawback for me is that I cannot use this player to view content on an HDTV via s-video cable. Screen is blank, only volume. I now use SMPlayer as my default player to achieve this. QuickTime can do it too, but QuickTime Player is very limited nowadays.

I use VLC for PC viewing of media. Am I missing something by not using MPC? The only thing is that VLC is not available in 64bit yet and I don't feel like downloading every codec to play a certain file with MPC. Someone please enlighten me about this, Thanks for any info. I give it 5 stars cause it has always been a favorite of everyone but I have never used it except back in the days of Windows 95.

Mr. Flemens. 99% of the Windows users use Windows XP or 7 and you give this extraordinarily stable and great player one star because it supposedly crashed your Windows 8? That's rather childish, isn't it?

I have never seen MPC crash any OS that I installed, and if I ever encounter that, I will first blame the bad drivers, because that sounds rather logical to me.

Mr. Troll... why is it such a problem to install an older version that you like? I always just do that and don't update any more, at least for the time being. Btw. it's simply a problem with your PC of some kind as it works great for me. Never jump to conclusions so quickly. But yeah, huge majority of people wouldn't admit it's their operating system, or drivers, or some program in the background that is being problematic. I'm into computer maintenance of rather sensitive audio and video workstations for like 15 years and I know what I'm talking about. So install the perfect version that works for you and... don't be a troll. :)) This is a fabulous player that I'm using since I installed Windows 2000... I never felt a need to change it. d= ;) cheers!

However, I would agree that MPC and MPC-HC are playing a little weird from version to version. I was most satisfied with 1.2 and 1.4 versions. For me they started being a bit problematic since v1.5. Too many features, I guess... if they kept it simple and bug-free, it would be better. We don't use 90% of the features anyway. I know I don't. I play the movie, fullscreen, close it when the film is over. What else do you need? Should it make pizza for you? :)) If I was a developer I would put all my effort into getting rid of BUGS. Not one single feature more. Being a bugless program is a GREATEST FEATURE of them ALL. ;) 5 stars nevertheless. This is one of the 15 and a half programs I have installed on my workstation.

@sinewave: "AVI is a *container* format that can contain a plethora of differently encoded video and audio streams. It's not like MP4, for instance. AVI is like MKV."

You're half right and half wrong. Yes, AVI and MKV are containers rather than codecs, but so is MP4. MP4s usually contain MPEG H.264/AVC video streams with AAC audio, but can also contain other formats.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-4_Part_14

Anyway, MPC-HC is great as a player in it's own right, and great for those who don't want to bother with any other installations for video.

Personally, I find it best to install ffdshow and use the built in codecs and splitters as a fallback:

- install ffdshow
- In MPCs Internal Filters, tick everything
- In MPC's "Options / External Filters", add "ffdshow video decoder" and set it to preferred.

The same can be done with "ffdshow audio decoder" if required.

The only other video playpack tool I have installed is VLC. I don't find it quite as responsive as MPC, but need it for certain streaming functions.

There's one other gotcha, just for MPC/FFDshow x64 users, and that's regarding other applications that use do video thumbnailing, like XNview. If the thumbnailing application is x86, then it won't be able to use the x64 decoders and splitters. For that reason you may also have to install the x86 version of ffdshow, and perhaps an x86 MPC for testing playback (I just use the original MPC standalone rather than a full MPC-HC).

Computer video is so darn complicated you have to be an IT expert to navigate it sometimes. Blame the lack of standard and proprietary formats. Anyway, that landscape taken for granted, as I started off this long post by saying, MPC-HC is great for your average user.

Other people are moaning all over here ...

The program runs fine - install a codec pack and it runs more effectively.

RUNTIME ERRORS have NOTHING to do with the program, installer, setup, etc. In this case you need to install MS vbruntime packages on your system. Or, download the zip package with the .exe and not an installer.

There is nothing wrong with this release ... it's user system error - that simple

What does that mean: "doesn't play and crash with AVI"? AVI is a *container* format that can contain a plethora of differently encoded video and audio streams. It's not like MP4, for instance. AVI is like MKV. So if it can't play a certain AVI you should analyse the file with MediaInfo and install the codec that plays the streams contained within *that particular* AVI.

I've been using MPC-HC and MPC for many years now and encountered a bug here and there, but whenever I try some other program I find it rubbish in comparison. Usually mindlessly bloated rubbish with a fabulous, beautifully rendered GUI. Well, I don't care about the beautiful GUI, all I care is to play the film from the beginning to the end properly. And btw - you don't see the GUI in full screen eh? ;) That doesn't mean I think MPC GUI is bad or bad looking, I love it's simplicity. I love programs that are functional and stable, not beautiful, or "beautiful" and [usually] prone to crashes. In my huge experience [I've been working in IT for like 15 years] the more "beautiful" the program - the more crashes and instability, not to mention the sluggishness in comparison to a simple GUIs.

Regarding codecs, it is recommendable to use ffdshow [tryouts] with it and then you can combine the different decoders from either MPC or FFDShow as you find it appropriate. Not the ICL one. ICL ffdshow is a bit more unstable even though it's a bit speedier, in my experience. I do test both ICL and normal versions.

This program is a blast! :) Thank you SO MUCH for continuing the development of it! MPC-HC and FFDShow. Btw. providing th edirectshow filters separately is also a fabulous idea. Thumbs up on hands and feet, too. :)

Cheers!

CodecPack

CodecPack reviewed v1.5.0.2827 on Feb 8, 2011

The internal filters have various limitations. That is why external filters are often preferable. For example the internal Matroska splitter does not support stuff like preferred streams, while Haali splitter does. The internal H.264 decoder is not multi-threaded, so ffdshow will give much better performance (when not using DXVA).

Probably the best player around in terms of video quality and features but the interface is a crap, the worst is that the authors are not thinking in change this and there are a many fanboys that support this position claiming (ridiculously) that an update in the interface would cause more resource consumption. The authors say that they guide by the scientific method at time to develop this app, so I'm wondering how rational and scientific is to have tons of options duplicated in the context menu and the menu bar? or how logic is to have a playlist and cannot select/remove multiple files or at least have an option to clean the playlist?
Like I said is the best player in terms of video quality but the development team is incredible stubborn and sometimes ridiculous at time to defend this ugly interface.
I'm not asking for skin support but just would like to see MPC-HC with an interface similar to Splayer and the logic in menus of foobar2k, that can't increase the resource usage and if it does it cannot be more than a couple of KB (we are running Pcs with 2GB of RAM or more, please)

It's pretty funny that they consider "Homecinema" an actual compound word. It's even funnier that the Fileforum editors "correct it" in the listing, even though when they do so, they get the name of the application wrong. (I know it doesn't matter, I'm just saying...)

- Lack of A-B repeat

I now use for all my content including High-Def BluRay/HD-DVD rips primarily in Matroska.

I can now use the High-Def decoders when the settings are correct (overlay mixer for XP; EVR for Vista, enable DXVA via AVC and VC-1 etc).

Tested on an ATI HD3870 desktop and NVidia 8600M GS notebook. In XP the ATI system used 44% of the CPU for "wmplayerc.exe" to run a 1080p BluRay rip with DXVA disabled and only 3% once I enabled the hardware decoders.

My TOTAL CPU usage to playback a 1080p BluRay rip of Hellboy (mine of course) was 5% under XP. Add a few percent under Vista. CPU was an AMD X2-4800+ but it sounds like maybe even an Intel Atom might work in conjunction with ATI or NVidia hardware decoders and MPlayerc Home Cinema with the settings correctly setup to use them.

Use the Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL) and monitor "mplayerc.exe" to see if you have the correct settings. I recommend setting up a K-Lite Standard Codec pack and overwrite the regular MPlayer Classic (in the K-Lite installed folder on C:/Program Files..) with this one.

You don't know what you talking, this apps is great, you smoke something or what?.
This software is superb, with all the codecs in the same executable, really great.

The best media player, now with
HUGE improvements over the previous
version.
Not the most beautiful, flashy interface,
but the best feature set under the hood!

Now includes DXVA video acceleration support, integrated codecs (based on FFMPEG) for almost all media formats including H.264. No more need for the crappy DivX codec adware.
Great for Vista in general, as it supports EVR
(Vista's enhanced video renderer). Nice for Vista Business users, as an MPEG-2 codec is included (now also in the64 bit version).

Bottom line:
This IS arguably the best media player out there.

AFAIK, the only added feature in MPC Home Cinema is support for remote control device. Therefore it's slightly more useful than the vanilla one on media center PC.

tbresson read the reviews under your own link, that MPC beta you mention is NOT from gabest.

I agree with Prospero424 that there should be more emphasis on the difference between the home cinema edition and the regular one.

As for the developers not developing the MPC anymore as hell0 stated; how do you explain the recent beta ?

See: http://fileforum.betanew...ows_2000XP/1045531002/1

Besides all this, mpc is in my oppinion one of the best players and I use it religiously :)

Cool project.

But the description is a bit lacking. It needs a better explanation of exactly how this is different from the vanilla MPC.

My favorite non resource hog player, one thing i wish it did have is snapshot.

hell0 reviewed v1.0.11.0 on Oct 15, 2007

IT CAN'T BE! MPC is no longer being developed! I have it on good authority from fans of other media players. So what is this?

My favorite player, by far. Thank nature SOMEONE is making a usable player without skins.

But... Light version? You're kidding, right?

Hard to say anything yet, lets hope we still get light version too.
