When starting Media Center.. no. When playing back media using the CoreAVC codec.. yes, if the try icon is enabled. It's blue if it isn't using hardware acceleration, it's green when it is using CUDA hardware acceleration.Would the CoreAVC icon even come up when starting WMC if it wasn't the default directshow filter?
I don't have DD listed under codecs, only DTS, and under "output" there is no specific option for s/pdif anywhere, except for an "Apply only to spdif output" check box...Just disable dd and dts under "codecs" then enable the S/PDIF passthrough under "Output". All in ffdshow obviously.
DD = AC3I don't have DD listed under codecs, only DTS, and under "output" there is no specific option for s/pdif anywhere, except for an "Apply only to spdif output" check box...
O yes. AFAIK the ones on Sourceforge are pretty old. I'm to lazy to check, w1retap will set you straight.
When properly set per this guide they play fine.Any idea why the Apple Trailers don't work in Media Browser?
Win7 plays it back just fine.. it has full support for .mov and .mp4 for Apple shit.
The reason the trailers aren't playing back right is because Apple fucked their website so people can't stream from 3rd party programs anymore. They changed some user agent strings or something. There's going to be an update to the HD Movie Trailers plug-in soon.
Okay, but is there a way to get the option inside of mediabrowser so you don't have to go back to the main menu? This would be more convenient and probably cause less problems with my parents.
w1retap : is "pass through" ONLY possible on Windows Vista & up ? can we do this under XP Pro or MediaCenter ? i will have a new laptop next week with NVidia GTS 160M. to avoid any headache when playing BRay with DTS HDMA or DD TrueHD, i ask you and seniors here if XPPro or MC can do this "pass through" method.You didn't setup your audio properly. Re-read. Either use the pass thru, or software decoding. MPC-HC works because you're most likely using the internal AC3filter.
Pass-thru can be done on XP. It's been quite a few years since I used it, but I believe there is a setting for it. If not, you can always use FFDshow's pass-thru setting, or AC3filter's pass-thru setting.
But, the only way to get DDplus, TrueHD, and DTS-HD is with the HDAV 1.3 sound card at the moment.
Regardless though, the audio decoding is negligible to system load.
