Media Player Classic Home Cinema 1.9.15 (MPC-HC)

Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC) is an extremely light-weight media player for Windows. It is a Media Player Classic mod design for homecinema usage and looks just like Windows Media Player 6.4, but has many additional extra features.

Media Player Classic – Home Cinema allows you to enhance, decode and accelerate a broad span of movie formats like x.264 with GPU assisted acceleration and image quality enhancing.

The MPC Home Cinema player does not require many system resources than the rest of the video media players to run smoothly.

This is a low PC resources windows media player that runs on slower machines with older CPUs.

Modern graphics card offer the possibility to decode partially or completely a video stream using DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA), in order to reduce CPU usage dramatically.

Media Player Classic Home Cinema includes an embedded video decoder that uses this technology, to decode x.264, H.264, HEVC and VC-1 with hardly any CPU time required.

Supported Decoding: MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 playback. Media Player Classic is capable of VCD, SVCD and DVD playback, without the need to install any additional software or codecs.

It has built-in codecs for MPEG-2 video and codecs for LPCM, MP2, AC3 and DTS audio, and also contains an improved MPEG splitter that supports playback of VCDs and SVCDs using its VCD/SVCD/XCD Reader. A *.mp4 and MPEG-4 Timed Text support added. An AAC decoding filter makes MPC suitable for AAC playback in MP4.

MPC Home Cinema also has H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, DivX, Xvid, and Flash Video formats is available in MPC HC. MPC can also use the QuickTime and the RealPlayer architectures. Media Player Classic supports native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats.

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.15 – August 10, 2021:

Changes / additions / improvements:

  • Seekbar video preview now supports video rotation.
  • Manual subtitle search now also works for online streams.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that could cause a long delay when opening the File menu with certain optical drives.
  • Fixed an issue in the audio stream switcher that could result in a player hang on seek or track change. This happened only when an external audio track was loaded, in combination with the internal audio renderer and madVR.
  • Fixed parsing of subtitle files that contain a duplicate UTF BOM in their file header.
  • A few other small fixes.

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.14 – July 2, 2021:

Updates:

  • Updated LAV Filters to version 0.75.1

Changes/additions/improvements:

  • Some optimizations in the filter graph builder. Should give a small reduction in file loading time in some situations.
  • Added a small safezone above and below the seekbar where (accidental) mouse clicks/drags are ignored.
  • Improved backwards framestep for DVDs. It now seeks back ~500ms to ensure it shows a different frame. The DVD Navigator unfortunately does not offer better accuracy.
  • Improved region code handling for DVDs
  • Added support for loading external fonts for SSA/ASS subtitles. The player check for “fonts” subfolder in location of video file.

Fixes:

  • Fixed regression that broke loading of audio dub through command line parameter

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.13 – June 5, 2021:

  • Fixed bug that could result in very low quality subtitles in certain situations. [regression in 1.9.12]
  • Fixed video display issue when moving the player to a larger resolution monitor. [regression in 1.9.12]
  • Fixed “launch in fullscreen” option not working when D3D fullscreen exclusive mode was enabled.
  • Fixed issue where a chosen audio dub was not loaded when opening a video through the File menu.
  • Fixed a rare player freeze when manually loading subtitles. Could happen on very old systems if subpicture texture allocation failed.

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.12.10 – June 4, 2021:

  • Fixed a rare player freeze when manually loading subtitles. Could happen on very old systems if subpic texture allocation failed.
  • Fixed “launch in fullscreen” option not working when D3D fullscreen exclusive mode was enabled.
  • Fixed issue where a chosen audio dub was not loaded when opening a video through the File menu

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.12 – May 27, 2021:

Changes/additions/improvements:

  • Changed default setting for subtitle texture resolution. This change only affects playback on screens with 4K resolution. In that case subtitles are now rendered at 1080p resolution (and then scaled to final size). This improves performance on such systems. You can of course change the setting to 4k if you prefer slightly sharper subtitles.
  • Some improvements related to the youtube-dl support.
  • Added support for downloading subtitles for streams extracted by youtube-dl. You can specify desired subtitle language(s) here: Options > Advanced
  • Strips html tags when found in SRT subtitles.
  • Added prompt when enabling OpenSubtitle option, mentioning than an account is required on their website.
  • Removed SubDB subtitle provider. Their site has been offline for a long time.
  • Removed obsolete RealMedia and QuickTime frameworks. These were only available in 32-bit builds, and were already not used by default anymore for a long time. Now such files are always played using the internal DirectShow codecs.

Fixes:

  • Fixed issue where recent file list could get cleared when opening a file with a very long path.
  • Several other small fixes and improvements.

Changes in MPC Home Cinema 1.9.11 – April 22, 2021:

Updates:

  • LAV Filters version 0.75-2-gddef5
  • MediaInfo DLL version 21.03

Changes/additions/improvements:

  • Added basic support for embedded WebVTT subtitles
  • Seek preview window now uses same aspect ratio as the video
  • After long pause (> 10 min) or hibernation, the player now performs a seek to current position before resuming. This re-initializes the video decoder, and hopefully solves a hang/crash on certain systems (with buggy graphics driver).
  • Some improvements for the youtube-dl functionality. It now also supports DASH manifest URLs.

Fixes:

  • Fixed subtitle regression that could cause subtitles to be skipped in certain situations when multiple lines were visible
  • Fixed issue with seeking to nearest keyframe
  • Fixed issue where the seek preview window broke the “always on top” functionality
  • A few other small fixes
