Win HOW TO - Launch MPC-HC/MPC-BE with madVR as an External Player

I have one problem, it looks like when i starting a movie in Kodi it starts mpc-hc but mpc-hc can not rendering the file, this means that mpc-hc aint loading the filters...

And if i start mpc-hc manual and starting the same movie, mpc-hc starts the filters (filters get loaded in system-tray) and the movie works flawless.

What can i do to solve this? Where do i find mpc-hc log files?

Kodi debug log can be found:

the only thing i can see that gives me an error is this line "CAESinkWASAPI::EnumerateDevicesEx: data format "AE_FMT_AAC" on device "AMD HDMI Output (AMD High Definition Audio Device)" seems to be not supported."

But that error looks weird cause both xbmc and mpc-hc plays the movie correct when loaded either in xbmc or mpc-hc standalone.

Many thanks again for a superb HOW-TO! i just wished that it worked for me haha Wink

I think your problem is too technical for me to solve, but I can offer a couple of troubleshooting tips.
  • Have you tried disabling "fullscreen exclusive mode" in madVR under "general settings?" That's the first place I'd look.
  • If it is your audio device, try using a different audio renderer such as ReClock.
  • The only other suggestion would be to try MPC-BE instead. The two players seem to interact differently with Kodi and MPC-BE can be used without having LAV Filters installed.
  • Also, I'd recheck my playercorefactory.xml to make sure there are no mistakes in there.
I assume you are getting a black screen. I haven't encountered that before.
