Media Player Classic Video Lag

Whenever I play Mitsudomoe Ep 01 by RaveSubs in WMP or MPC, the video lags hard on the running scenes in the opening. It doesn't lag in VLC, but instead the video freezes and has a bunch of artifacts everywhere, making it hard to watch. I tried giving MPC high priority on the RAM, but the problem is still there. I have 2GB of RAM, which should be enough.

Possibly just more CPU intensive. Whats your CPU usage during those periods?

If you're finding you're maxing out, and this is an .264 encode, then you might find it worth investing in CoreAVC's codec which is about $10, as it's faster than the more popular FFDShow codec.

My CPU usage shoots to 100% in Media Player Classic. Same with VLC.

So the only issue is the codecs? Nothing hardware-related, I hope?

It is hardware-related in that your CPU is not up to the task of decoding and rendering these videos. Changing to a more efficient codec (such as CoreAVC or the DiVX H264 decoder) will possibly solve your problem, but then again it may not. The files may just be too much for your CPU to handle.

As another poster said, tell us what kind of computer you have--CPU, GPU, memory, OS, etc, so we can assist you better.

I am having the exact same problem with my cpu maxing out on usage and the sound lag. I am running windows vista with AMD 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ 2.3 GHZ with 6GB of Ram and a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT video card. Could I benefit from getting the CoreAVC's codec or is my computer processor too slow. I have used both Media Player classic and Windows media player.

Jasonv, try use the latest standalone Media Player Classic Homecinema, and make sure that you have the latest drivers from nVidia.

A dual core should be able to handle it on its own, but you can also try hardware acceleration using MPC-HC (like namaiki seems to be suggesting) or CoreAVC ( GeForce 8600 should be supported). (The newest VLC versions also supports hardware acceleration, to use go to "options/settings">"Input&Codecs">"Use GPU acceleration (experiemtenal)".)

Yeah, that's what I meant. ^^

By default, MPC-HC will have DXVA enabled and working for that GeForce of Jasonv's.

If their VLC experience was perfect, I think they would be using it. It would probably work with GPU acceleration, but so would MPC-HC.

I was not using VLC, so I downloaded it and that fixed the problem. Thanks for the help guys!
