mpc hc error connect psrc / pmid

Post by Sir Pixelot on Sat Oct 01, 2016 10:09 pm

Hello,

I have K-lite Codec Pack 12.3.5 Standard, and every time I attempt to use the "Save a Copy" feature in Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC HC) I get the error connect psrc / pmid. How can i fix this? When I use the portable version of MPC HC, direct from the developers website, the Save a copy feature works and does not return this error. Is this an issue with the version K-lite comes with? Any solution would be appreciated, Thank You.

You can solve it with this:
Codec Tweak Tool > Preferred Splitters > select "Use merit" for the relevant format

That copy function uses a DirectShow graph to save the data. It only works with the standard file source filter, and not when using a splitter directly as a source filter.

This function is to save streams. It is not a recommended way to copy a file. You should just use Explorer for that.

What do you mean "save streams"? I use that function and the copy of the file has the same file hash as the original (SHA1 & SHA256). The files are the same.

With streams I mean playing something from an Internet URL instead of a local file.

It does not perform a normal copy operation. It uses a inefficient and complex way to read data from a file and then dump it into a new file.

That doesn't explain why the new file has the same file hash (SHA-1, SHA-256, etc.) as the original. If the copy was not done correctly then surely the new file would have a different file hash, right?

The hash is same because it copies all data.

I am not saying the file will be incorrect. I am saying that this method is not the best if all you want to do is copy a file.
