Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows
(2015-08-13, 06:52)aoe2exp Wrote: Hi all, newbie here. I was following the 5 min set up video, but Kodi isn't playing anything unless I select "use system filters." If I deselect it and try to play anything it will hang and not play the files. Any ideas? I have windows 10 on a I5 and dual 970s.

I think I am an overposter in this forum, but I put together more lengthy instructions on how to get it working: 222576 (thread).

Install the Starter Kit and all will likely be well. With dual 970s, I would set everything to NNEDI3 128-256 neurons (Image Doubling for all upscales, chroma upscaling, etc.). However, the latest Windows 10 Nvidia drivers may have removed this feature (at least, temporarily). You may have to roll-back to older drivers (like v353.49) to get NNEDI3 working. Check the madVR Doom9 forum for more information.

NNEDI3 is the best scaling algorithm but runs a little hot on most cards. These are the settings I would suggest for all upscales with high-end cards:

Profile: "Any Upscale"
  • Chroma: super-xbr150 + AR or NNEDI364
  • Image: Jinc3 + AR
  • Luma Doubling: 1.5x or greater - NNEDI3 32 to 256 neurons
  • Luma Quadrupling: 3x or greater - NNEDI3 32 to 256 neurons
  • Downscaling: Catmull-Rom + AR + LL
  • Upscaling Refinement: SuperRes (strength: 1)
  • Artifact Removal - Debanding: Medium/High
  • Image Enhancements: Off
  • Dithering: Error Diffusion 2
Profile: "No Resize"
  • Chroma: NNEDI3 32 to 256 neurons
  • Image: Jinc3 + AR
  • Luma Doubling: Off
  • Luma Quadrupling: Off
  • Downscaling: Catmull-Rom + AR + LL
  • Upscaling Refinement: Off
  • Artifact Removal - Debanding: Medium/High
  • Image Enhancements: FineSharp (strength: 0.5)
  • Dithering: Error Diffusion 2
Don't worry about the overscaling with 1.5x scaling factors. The added image downscaling shouldn't be a problem for your card.
