Very nice, looks like this means native BluRay support in MPC-HC now.

Now they only have to integrate madVR and XySubFilter (an update for xy-VSFilter to properly support rendering subtitles in 10-bit format), and codec packs can go eff themselves.

Nope.

I just tried Ice Station Zebra on Blu-Ray. This plays fine with PowerDVD, but it wouldn't play at all with MPC-HC. I saw the "Open DVD/BD" too, but that's been there.

The problem with Blu-Ray is the anti-piracy encryption type bull**** that requires constant updating. Hell, it even says on Blu-Ray disks "Be sure you have the latest firmware or this may not play".


And I know there are a few FORCED ways floating around that have had some success with getting Blu-Ray to run in MPC-HC. But anyone has any success with vanilla MPC-HC, let me know! I'd always love to trash PowerDVD.

"Cannot render the file" on index.bdmv

Ice Station Zebra while being an older movie (1968) was just released on Blu-Ray so maybe they used a newer anti-piracy type of thing with it.


I'll look around for some older Blu-Ray movies and see if that makes a difference.

BluRay Support
Support for opening BluRay playlists (.mpls), as well as the index.bdmv file, which will try to detect the main movie playlist!


BluRay support is still in an early stage, and there are still many improvements and new features planned!

Not shure if this Helps..but the BD support will be getting better..nev said so himslef in teh Doom9 Forums..

Don't get me wrong, like I said I'd love to have MPC-HC replace, in my experience, bloated PowerDVD (although I will admit PowerDVD does do a good job once the movie is playing)


Anyway, went through a list of old/random movies I have (I had to dig them out). I couldn't find Taxi Driver or Jurassic Park, and for that I am sad and sorry, because those are the two movies I do have an urge to watch again.

ANYWAY
Here's my results with 1.7.

Swordfish: No go.
Acted like it was trying to play it, but said "Paused".

King Kong (Peter Jackson version): No go.
Acted like it was trying to play it, but said "Paused".

Final FantasyThe Spirits Within: Nope. Same as others.

YuYu Hakusho (anime): Nope. See above.

I have been an MPC user since its beginning a decade ago(according to Wiki but I feel its bee a lot longer) and it was my go-to and recommended player for movies/videos.

I had some strays with RealPlayer back in those days when it was huge. The same goes with GOM a few years ago. I liked that player a lot and it was working perfectly.

I tried almost all the major players(RealPlayer, GOM, KM, BSP, TMT, VLC etc) but always returned to MPC-HC. Maybe because I learned its tricks and quirks.

After a long run of MPC-HC with customization's, codecs, filters, shaders, settings, various setup/PQ guides, I have to say with all those years of tweaking were replaced with PowerDVD 13 after my 1st try with it.

Why now? After all this years? I knew PowerDVD since the early days. But I never liked it. Ever.

But as I said, after trying PD 13, I haven't looked back. And I'm referring purely on the picture quality. Just that. Feature wise MPC-HC wins hands-down. But as far as PQ goes, PD 13 takes the crown.

I even tried to tweaked the MPC-HC settings to come close to PD 13(TrueTheater) but even then the difference was big.

But I know that when day when I'm fed up with the limitations of PD I will return to MPC-HC...

I guess I should have specified. I've been using MPC-HC with LAV filters and MADVR since last year (i think) for BluRay playback with HD audio bit******ing. But you do need AnyDVD or something like it for bluray decryption duties. MPC by itself won't handle the decryption.

previously though, you had to install MPC-HC, then LAV filters and configure MPC to use the LAV splitter and filters. Now it looks like you can save yourself that hassle, but you still need AnyDVD to playback the encrypted discs.
