(Yesterday 23:46)vmax Wrote:  I was wondering if there is a way to look at an MKV file BEFORE playing it too see if there is a 2nd audio track in it using the KODI menu or before pressing play etc. I have tried looking through all the keyboard commands and can't see anything that gives me that option. I have TV shows and movies that have a commentary track in them but I have no way of visually knowing which ones have them. Thanks to help on this forum I learned what keyboard command lets me change audio track, so now I'm wondering about seeing them!

You guys are a great help on this forum and I love the DS Player version with all the ongoing upgrades! I hope it lives on...

Thanks...

No, there isn't to my knowledge. It would be a welcome feature to add.

Hello

I'm very new to this stuff but i like to test madVR. I downloaded the madVR version and installed. I installed the LAV splitter, madVR and ffdshow. I followed a guide and i'm able to play videos with MPC-HT and madVR.

In Kodi i enabled madVR as renderer but i'm not able to play any file. I tried to use 'Use system filters (direct show merits)' but the same result.
I'm able to play some .wmv files with dsplayer and madVR but all other types fail.

I played a bit with 'filter configurations' and add four filters LAV splitter,LAV audio decoder,LAV video decoder and Haali media splitter (found in a guide) but still unable to play.
I found an entry in the logs. I guess the file couldn't be played because the correct filter couldn't be loaded. But where can i configure the filter to load? (in my exmaple for .mp4 files)

Code:
CDSPlayer::Process - Creating DS Graph
00:55:31 T:876  NOTICE: Loading filter core factory settings from special://profile/dsplayer/filtersconfig.xml (filters configuration).

It would be nice if someone can short explain where and what i have to configure to use dsplayer and madVR.

Thanks you in advance.

I'm going to post a guide that will be available tomorrow sometime on how to do this. ffdshow will be a topic that will have to be added in the future. But the guide should get you most of the way there.

In my DSPlayer setup, FFDshow RAW is still inserted as extra filter though even with MadVR, You'd want FFDShow to do some post-processing with SD DivX,XVID. It's also needed for SVP which someone prefer those 60fps stuff.

And I'd say with weak GPU Avisynth's Spline64 + sharpening filter of choices in FFDshow gives a splendid scaling quality. And would cost some additional CPU load without the need of stronger GPU. Probably most suitable with those intel hd graphics or on-board gpu.

Whether it's better than MadVR Jinc3+AR which some considered MadVR best algorithm to offer now is debatable.

Thank you Warner306 that would be very nice.

Meanwhile maybe someone could post his filtersconfig.xml and mediasconfig.xml. I know the files maybe not work but i can get an impression what is going on inside.

Thank you.

This my config. A bit messy but hey it's working.

You need to install extra software though. LAVFilters, FFDShow, AVSplitter ,XyVSFilter & Marumo ISDB Splitter.
