DirectShow FilterPack A lite-weight package of DirectShow media filters
Posted 10 January 2008 - 12:56 AM
why do you still include CoreCodec's WavPack decoder when the DCoder one does the job fine?
and there seems to be a small glitch in your CDXA folder, there is a file called "cdxareader.ax (Gabest(clsid) - CDXA Source Filter 188.8.131.52 - 18092007)" which i presume is the updated filter?
(also, you should enable DCoder's AAC support, as it allows seeking and FFDShow does not)

my website said:
The same can be said of the FFDShow Audio Decoder in case of embedded FLAC Audio and True Audio.
For everyone: delete "cdxareader.ax" and rename "cdxareader.ax (Gabest(clsid) - CDXA Source Filter 184.108.40.206 - 18092007)" to "cdxareader.ax", then you can install the whole package (or only this one) in which case the newest CDXA Source Filter will be registered. It's not a big disaster, but still. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
I don't have any problems time-seeking through a AAC or a MP3 file with the MPA Splitter and FFDShow though.
p.s. I don't know what props means

and i figured you had good reason to still include the WV decoder i was just curious what it was
props = respect!
edit: dunno what the glitch is, but for me AAC doesn't seek unless i manually unregister the MPA filter and then re-register. after that it works fine.

The latest Bass Source Filter update was back in March :x. I was actually waiting to make a bigger update, but sadly enough it's very quiet in "DirectShow Filter land" at the moment.

BTW, the link to the latest version 3.32 on your site is broken

Wow, people here didn't know about 7zip? Actually when I got to the sfx exe I wasn't sure if it was a silent installer or just an extracting sfx, so I extracted it manually just in case.
Thanks a lot for the fix.

I have installed your codes, ffdshow, and used GraphFilter to play a shoutcast pls: http://yp.shoutcast....pls?id=1756658.
When I insert MPC - SHoutcast filter and input the above url I get error: Filter failed to load file, unspecified error (return code: 0x80004005).
I am using Win 7 32 bit. (BTW, on Win 7 64 bit your filters does not seem to work, can't see them in graphfilter.)
Am I doing something wrong?

I have to admit, because I rarely listen to SHOUTcast streams, I haven't tested the source filter with every update recently.
Although I'm on WinXP (and I can't help people with Win7), the thing doesn't work with me either. At least the standalone source filter, because MPC-HC's embedded SHOUTcast source filter still works fine (weird...).
I've created a ticket so developers can have a look at it. After having tried several things, I don't have a temporary solution, so we have to wait for the MPC-HC developers to come up with a solution.
Thanks for letting me know.

MPC-HomeCinema and it's SHOUTcast Source Filter are the culprit. And to make matters worse; I completely overlooked the DC-Bass Source Filter its shoutcast support out of the box.
After quite some testing this filter passes with flying colours for all sorts of audio streams, whereas the MPC-HC SHOUTcast Source Filter fails miserably.
It's because I abandoned Zoom Player (where the DC-Bass Source Filter works perfectly*) some years ago in favour of Foobar that I thought there's something wrong the filter's shoutcast support, but it seems it's in fact MPC-HC which is the culprit. Somehow it can't call forth the DC-Bass Source Filter for audio streams.
If you'd like to see the full test report, click here.
Overlooking everything now, I think with the next update I'll replace the MPC-HC SHOUTcast Source Filter in favour of the DC-Bass Source Filter. Why? Although they might be able to fix the issues with MP3 and AAC, I don't know if we can expect Vorbis support and the DC-Bass Source Filter has already just that.
If you're using MPC-HC, you can forget streaming, at least for now. To listen to online radiostations I suggest you use Zoom Player, or if you're desperate MONOGRAM GraphStudio (GraphEdit is old!), together with the DC-Bass Source Filter. Be sure to unregister the MPC-HC SHOUTcast Source Filter first!
* Only OGG-streams are a bit troublesome. They won't play at the moment, but I think it's an issue with Zoom Player rather than with the filter. With MONOGRAM GraphStudio OGG-streams are working fine.

The loadlibrary call from regsvr32.exe fails. I think it calls some functions in kernel32.dll, having a quick look with Dependency Walker.
Is this going to be normal in the future? It's sad, as I started to use the DirectShow Filter Pack few months ago :/ with nice results.

I've been getting this question from someone else too some time ago, which is quite worrying.
Since I don't have Win2000 myself, could you do me a favour and see if there's any of the 4 attached Matroska splitters working for you, and if so, which one(s)?
I have used the nightly builds from Xvid.ru in my DSFP now for a long time, but according to their documentation, they do not support Win2000 (at least Win2000 is not listed). MPC-HC's official website (Sourceforge) however advertises with support for WinNT and Win2000, so if they live up to their promise, I'd say they should work for you. But again, could you please test all 4 of them included in the attachment and post your findings here?

After that, for the ones you posted, the only one that gives an error is "MatroskaSplitter-220.127.116.1156_(SF).ax".
About what you say between the docs and SF site differences, MPC-HC, the application, the player, doesn't run on Windows 2000. Do the filters? Well, as you extract them from it, and I was using them, yes, until 4.11, they worked, and that is because I was happy I found your DSFP. Sadly looks like they started to compile the filters as they do with the player, not allowing to run them on older OSs :/
P.S.: I know there are wrappers (OldCigarettes and BlackWingCat), and I use them for games, but...

BUT, after googling "msvc 2010 windows 2000", a lot became clear. Ultimately it turns out to be a compiler issue. MS Visual Studio 2010 simply doesn't support Windows 2000. It's the only compiler used today.
After a bit of searching I found out the following versions are last ones compiled with MS Visual Studio 2008 (which should still work on Windows 2000):
- MPC - Home Cinema 1.4.2815.0
- Standalone filters 18.104.22.16830
A couple of links that came up after performing above mentioned google search were interesting though:
- How to compile a C++ application in Visual Studio 2010 so that it could work in Windows 2000?
- Visual C++ 2010 Apps Don't Support Windows 2000
If you want to keep using updated versions of MPC-HC or its standalone filters, I suggest you ask the developers to have a look at these links and see what the possibilities are at:
- the "Software Players hideout of the Doom9 forum (start your own topic, or post a reply in the big Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC) - DXVA! topic)
- or create a bug report / feature request at SourceForge
That's all I can do for you, sorry.

The wrappers are to make available functions not available by default on the host OS.
As for Windows 98 there are the KernelEx wrappers, for Windows 2000 we have the OldCigarette Wrapper and BlackWinCat KDW wrapper. Now the Win2kgaming forum is down but you have a thread now here:
They work with games and applications with the wrappers and, sometimes, little hacks. But I think I'm not even gonna try with these filters :S I think I'll consider to report to the MPC-HC team but I don't hope them to hear me a little.
Indeed, I'm not very interested on MPC-HC player. I was using your filters (as you extracted from the project) to play content on BSPlayer 0.86 (yes, you read the version correctly, very old, I know). I only use the MPC in the latest version before HC, 22.214.171.124.
While the filters from DSFP 4.01 causes 0 problems, I'll enjoy them.
Thanks for your reply anyway It was helpful
