What's new in Media Player Classic - Home Cinema 1.7.1:
This release is mostly a bugfix release, with a few new features.
Highlights of this release:
- Fixed MPC-HC crashing on startup on >= Windows 8. Broken codecs installed on the system tend to crash the player on startup. Now this crash will only happen if/when you enter capture mode. One common cause is ffdshow x64. Check if you have it installed and uninstall it.
- Many LAV Filters fixes and improvements, including support for HEVC and VP9, and a crash fix on AMD cards with DXVA when stopping playback
- Fixed subtitle selection settings of the internal LAV splitter
- Many more bugfixes and improvements, check the changelog for details.
