Post by Boxer22 on Mon Oct 07, 2013 4:47 am

I have downloaded a movie file, which I am having a problem when I call up the movie and try to save a copy to my desktop.Once this is done, then I open up Windows DVD Maker to transfer the movie here in order to burn on a disc.But, I am unsuccessful to save a copy to my desktop because an error message comes up: " Error Connect psrc/pmid.Some of my movie files do this, while others don't.Please provide easy steps to follow. Thank you.

You should not use MPC-HC to make a copy of the file. You should use Windows Explorer to copy files.

But why do you need to copy the file at all? Can't you just import the original file directly in DVD maker?

I use the MPC to view my movie. I have done this for years.But, it is when I use MPC to pause the start of the movie and go to file and press save a copy to my desktop I now recently get an errror "Error Connect psrc/pmid. I am saving the movie on my desktop so that when I open up Windows DVD Maker I can burn it.
My question is how do I get rid of this message?

The "Save a Copy" function in MPC does not perform a normal file copy. Instead, it attempts to modify the DirectShow graph to write the input data to disk. This functionality is intended for saving online streams to file, not for copying files.
The reason why you get the error is because the functionality only works with certain source filters. By default incompatible source filters are used for playback of almost everything. You can avoid the error for AVI files by disabling the internal AVI source filter.

You want to copy a file. You should not use "Save a Copy" function from MPC for that. You should copy the file using a file manager, like Windows Explorer. I don't understand why you aren't using that. Don't you know how to use it? Also, why aren't you importing the original file directly into DVD maker? Are you scared it will modify the file? Because it will not do that.

Hello.  Just wanted to mention...yes, in almost every situation I too would use windows explorer to copy/move files (of course) however 1 instance when a normal 'save a copy' feature would be nice is when you're viewing a video that was downloaded off Youtube but the Firefox downloader plugin saved the file with a gibberish filename (ie: file-2342413123.mp4) and while trying to organize/rename them all 1 at a time, it would be much easier if instead of having to find the folder then scroll through a huge list of similarly named video files in windows explorer so that I can rename/move it, if I could just save it through MPC right there with the name/location I wanted.  (Yes, I know I shoulda just named correctly it when I saved it off Youtube but whatever =))  In any case, 'save a copy' is a little misleading.  It should say 'save stream as...' or something.
I coulda swore I've done this before in MPC and it saved the file no problem but now I'm getting the 'error connect pSrc..' message too which is how I ended up here. =)  Did MPC change or did my settings change and cause this?  Any workaround for this?  I tried setting video splitter to 'default' as suggested in another thread about this error but it didn't change anything (may have misunderstood).  Anyhow, not a big deal at all just a minor inconvenience.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

That function only works when separate Source Filter and Splitter are used in the DirectShow Filter graph. For efficiency a combined Source/Splitter filter is used in most cases.

A workaround is to set preferred splitters to "Use merit" with the Codec Tweak Tool. But then I recommend setting LAV Splitter as preferred external filter in MPC-HC options as well, otherwise you might get playback problems.
