    Found out after installing 11.10 that video with ffdshow and certain codecs did not work.

    Did have xbmc dsplayer set up with ffdshow dxva and ffdshow hd audio, and mpc home cinema did not work with ati 11.10, player would not start.

    What changed between 11.9 and 11.10 that would stop ffdshow etc working?

    Dunno.
    Happened to me too.

    In my case, MPC-HC did start.
    It plays the audio, renders any embedded/external (styled) subtitles just fine, but no video a.k.a. black screen.
    Flash videos somehow also went green with 11.10.

    Back to 11.9 fixed it. Seems you still have to make image backup before installing ati drivers. Luckily remembered to install chipset drivers before rebooting after the uninstall, or would be stuck in bsod loop.

    That's what I did too, reverting to 11.9.
    It's ATi/AMD; I'm already used to it.
    I hope 11.11 won't be just another POS being made just to fulfill one WHQL driver a month quota like 11.10.

    MPCHC 32bit? 64bit? VLC is fine? this is only if you use EVR as an output mode? etc...

    Does it matter?
    The only thing that matters is that it plays fine on every version before 11.10.

    Anyway, it's MPC-HC 32-bit, along with ffdshow to decode 10-bit h264.
    Uses EVR Custom since it's the default that was working fine anyway.

    ya it matters, 64bit & 32bit are obviously different code (in the past i've had certain videos crash ffdshow in 64bit only for example)

    it might be possible to figure out which dll is used for video & just place it in MPC's folder, just like the trick to do in games to use different versions of the driver without installing them
