0Media Player Classic - Home Cinema LogoDecoding Interlaced VC‑1 with DXVA

A couple of days ago ver­sion 1.6 of Media Play­er Clas­sic — Home Cinema was released.  Although I don’t use MPC-HC, I do keep an eye on the releases as it can be a use­ful back-up when a file wont play.  It’s been quite a long time since the last offi­cial release so I had a quick scan of the changelog and one thing imme­di­ately leaped at me: “VC‑1 DXVA Decoder now decodes VC‑1 inter­laced mater­i­al”.  Until now there has been no open source x64 codec that will decode inter­laced VC‑1.  Finally hav­ing this avail­able com­pletes cov­er­age for all the media files I have ever tried to play.  Hope­fully this will also get added to ffd­show try­outs and LAV Video in the near future.

0FFmpeg LogoUnsolved: Decoding interlaced vc1 in Media Center x64

Whilst my MediaPC setup can decode just about everything thrown at it, I have had prob­lems decod­ing inter­laced VC1 con­tent.  The prob­lem is caused by the fail­ure of ffm­peg to sup­port inter­laced vc1.  Whilst there are oth­er codecs (e.g. cyber­link or arc­soft) these are cur­rently not avail­able as x64.  Cyber­link do have an x64 codec for h.264 and mpeg2, but I haven’t been able to get it to work with VC1 con­tent.  Hope­fully ffm­peg will fix inter­laced vc1 sup­port soon, but as its been on the to do list for over 2 years I’m not hold­ing my breath
