Catalyst 9.4 is out.
Did anyone try them out?
Yes, I did. Same fps drops as on 9.3 :/ guess I'll have stay with the CPU rendering.
Still nothing, I went through every setting again, and even changed build of mpc-hc to 1.2.1008. No dxva. The only difference is that now I can use direct vob sub witout it making my cpu cough its lung out.
Is this then a pure ATi (driver) issue and NVidia cards are not affected...?
Well, i just installed on my main computer (to the left) Windows 7 7077. Well with only Divx 7 and ac3 filter installed i can play any 1080p file with 20-25% processor usage. It's incredible. i don't know why but it works. It doesn't matter the player Windows Media Player or Media player classic.
Yes, but is it a x264 encoded mkv file?
Yes it is. Well actually i tried alot more. Quicktime 1080p plays just as well in WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER, no quicktime installed at all. I don't know what they've done but...this thing is good. I'll show some screenshots tomorrow however, Media Player Classic fails to show Stats (CTRL+J). Probably because Windows Media Foundation ?!
I also dont have stats on the 1008(I think) build, the 908 build had them...
However, the latest build you can download @ MPC-HC homepage is 908, and the newer one is distributed through various codec packs... wierd.
I have tried the shaders effects and found 16-235 helps to make the picture to be more vivid. Sharpen complex 2 and edge sharpen only adds more noise and make the picture more blockier. What shaders do you guys use the most?
I just can´t make it (x264) work on a HD4670 with catalyst 9.4 (XP, 32bit), it is very choppy. Back to CPU decoding with ffdshow.
Has anyone tried it on Windows 7?
hey, same here, i just cant seem to get it to work with my 4670.
Is it really necessary t have the mkv wrapper, or will any wrapper do?
i also have klite codec pack installed, any ideas,?
need to read the whole thing for the who knows how times, but no success.
Something else. When I activated the shaders n a x264 movie I sometimes don't get an image but only sound...
Aint running here. Also have ffdshow and all those filters and stuff. No way of geting it through the gfx card.
If I am not mistaken only the AMD/ATI cards have problems?
I suppose you are. I don't have problems with my ATI card. And im sure there are Nvidia users with problems
So, then it must be OS / driver related...?
On XP 32bit with a 4670 there is no way to get it to work.
Watching a DVD with shaders on is no problem though.
Yeah, ati 3200/xp sp3 and catalyst from 8.8 up to 9.4, none worked. Getting additional ram and w7 soon. Ill report here if that combo works.
I am also going to try W7 64bit.
why can't this be used for blu-ray? It's useless just to be able to watch trailers and music vids like this but then you go to your movies and you see the quality difference it wouldnt be the same..
Afaik, blu-ray is acellerated nativley by new cards (Radeons with the HD tag and nV since 6?) using windows media player/power dvd and such.
