Some WMV files won't play properly in MPC but does in WMP

Post by Ido013 on Thu Aug 07, 2014 2:58 am

I've been trying to play a bunch of video files but they only fully work in WMP. In MPC the video only progresses when I skip ahead then remains still at any part of the video.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit
I've installed the full codec 10.6.0

Tried the NVIDIA edge enhancement modification and toggling VSYNC but did nothing.

This is the type of file that's bugging:
Code:
Video
ID                             : 1
Format                         : WMV2
Codec ID                       : WMV2
Codec ID/Info                 : Windows Media Video 8
Description of the codec       : wmv2
Duration                       : 21mn 30s
Bit rate                       : 1 921 Kbps
Width                         : 640 pixels
Height                         : 480 pixels
Display aspect ratio           : 4:3
Frame rate                     : 29.970 fps
Bit depth                     : 8 bits
Bits/(Pixel*Frame)             : 0.209
Stream size                   : 296 MiB (93%)

It uses the standard WMV decoder from Microsoft for such files.

You could try enabled WMV formats in LAV Video decoder.

Thanks it works better now, it still stutters a bit but I guess that's the file's quality not the decoders right?

You could also try changing the splitter:
Codec Tweak Tool > Preferred Splitters

Considering that the Microsoft filters have problems with this specific file, it is likely the problems are due to the file itself.
