WMV format video won't play in MPC-HC (x64) in Windows 10

Post by tragicmike on Tue May 29, 2018 3:50 pm

I can open these wmv videos using VLC, and they play fine. But when opened with MPC-HC, they will display frames if I scrub, but won't play. It's as if the video is paused even when the play button is pressed.

Info on one of the WMV videos:

MPC-HC menu > Play > Filters
If you see LAV Video decoder, click on it and disable VC-1 on the Formats page in its settings.

Can I download this file somewhere?

Unfortunately, no. It is a classified internal dev file I cannot share. I listed all of the info I could on the file, however. Hopefully that will be enough to troubleshoot. Let me know if any other info would be helpful in investigating this and I will see what else I can provide.

For one thing, it may be relevant that I am currently working in Sweden. My PC is set up using English language. But perhaps there is something different in the actual Windows 10 installation in the EU which is causing an issue.

I tried your suggestion, and am not seeing LAV Video decoder in the menu.

It is using the default splitter and decoder from Microsoft. Those don't seem to like your file.

This should solve it:
MPC-HC options > Internal Filters
Enable the WMV source filter and the WMV1/2/3 transform filter.

If you also need to make it work in other DirectShow players, then do this:
Codec Tweak Tool > Preferred Splitters > WMV > LAV Splitter
LAV Video Decoder > Formats > enable wmv12 and wmv3

This is odd. I see nothing listed in Transform Filters. The box for WMV/ASF/DVR-MS was unchecked, however, so I checked that one. And luckily, that alone seems to have resolved the issue. I'm able to play wmv files now!

The missing filters is weird. Re-installing the pack should fix that.
