  1. What subtitle filter do we use in this pack? And why AssFilterMod is blocked in MPC-HC external filters list?

    • For MPC-HC, the subtitle filter used is the internal one. AssFilterMod is blocked to make certain that it will never be loaded in the playback graph.

      • Thanks for the fast reply! :)
        If I want to use XySubFilter, how can I enable it? I tried setting it to prefer in MPC-HC external filters list but nothing happened.
        BTW why do you prefer the internal one over XySubFilter?

        • If you want to use XySubFilter, you can choose it via the ‘Subtitle Renderer’ drop-down menu at the ‘Player —> Output’ section. It is chosen because I believe it is a little bit faster than XySubFilter.

  2. Thanks for the tips!
    I just saw the updated LAV Filters. Installed it and set it to YADIF. Even switched between the other options. Still frame dropping. Somewhat improved after switching from the 8-bit default (on Madvr high settings) to 10-bit with fullscreen exclusive, and NGU.

    On a related note, is there a way to quickly switch to the low or medium MadVR settings without rerunning the installer? Also which setting would you normally recommend for the 1070 (outside of the K-On situation)?

  3. Thanks for all your help with this. I’ve been silently reading and trying to figure things out but I finally hit some snags I think I need help with:
    I have an NVIDIA GTX 1070 and an LG 4k 27ud68 monitor with 10bit depth (or 8bit + A-FRC). I just managed to eliminate frame drops on the 10-bit angel beats trailer but the history channel trailer as well as the K-On videos with subtitles appear to be consistently dropping rates. All is well in windowed mode but in fullscreen mode, it keeps rising.

    I set the native bid-depth to 10-bit and am using the NGU for chroma upscaling AA HQ, Image downscaling: ID strength:100% AR -Soft, Image Upscaling-High, Let madVR decide for all except Jinc AR for upscaling algo and SSIM 1D100 for downscaling algo, SuperRes:2 Upscaling refinement. I also have enable auto fullscreen on and smooth motion enabled (disabling didn’t help)

    Thanks for any assistance you can give.

    • You did use the LAV Filters installer above? If yes, for the History Channel clip, make sure you have the LAV Filters installer be at the latest version and also for your GPU drivers. Then go to LAV Video Decoder property page and then enable YADIF deinterlacing with 50/60 p (Video) output, and then try again.

      As for the K-On clip, that’s a dicey one on the 4K display, try using the low-end UHD preset with it.

        • Assuming you are using Windows 10, switch the decoding method to CUVID, and then use the low-end UHD preset from the installer. To use that preset without running the installer, download the presets from https://vocaloid.my/madVR_config.zip and unpack it, then reset madVR configuration by going to ‘All Programs —> LAV Filters —> Reset madVR Configuration’, then copy the preset you want to use to ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\LAV Filters\x64\madVR’ folder.

  4. I haven’t tried after the creators update. Yeah 32 bit works so I don’t know, thanks for the help though. Have a good weekend

  5. After updating to the Windows 10 Creators Update, any video I open crashes MadVR upon launch. Is this a mistake on my part or is it that the files haven’t been updated yet?

          • That doesn’t work either. I think the new windows update must’ve messed with MadVR. The same problem occurs after reinstalling LavFilters too

              • It’s a clean install after formatting. I just tested it with an RX 480 from an RMA (which I have to send back again) and it did the same thing. MadVR crashes, black screen but audio plays fine. Before the update, videos were playing fine.

                  • I installed the 32 bit version and that works perfectly. DoTA 2 had the same problem where the 64 bit client wouldn’t run so I had to run the game with the 32 bit version instead. Do you think this could just be a compatibility issue then and that the programs need to be updated?

                    • I forgot to mention, what preset should I be using for an RX 480? The mid-end says it’s for the GTX 1060 / RX 470 and the high-end for RX 480. The high-end setting causes videos to stutter so I’m a confused on why the preset would be recommended for that card.

                    • Did you use the latest installer above? I have tweaked the AMD-highend preset in it, and it should be OK when playing at fullscreen. A 1080p full screen of course.
