I used to have it working fine - played 1080p with no trouble, but I had to reinstall windows and now I can't remember how I did it! I've spent the last hour on google and had no luck and I tried the latest VLC beta but didnt seem to work too well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you install the chipset and video drivers?

Yep installed the ATI catalyst drivers before.

Are they the ones you mean?

Don't use VLC, it can't be hardware accelerated. It carries all of its codecs internally.

Are you using XP or Win 7?
I think for XP, you select VMR9 renderless
I think for Vista (and win 7), select EVR custom renderer

The new VLC beta does. ;) It's a bit hit and miss at this point, but it will improve.

i prefer vlc to media player classic. i like vlc's simplicity but i wish i could add codecs as the klite codec pack would do it nicely

Why? What codecs do you use that VLC doesn't support that the K-Lite Codec Pac does?

I personally fail to see how VLC is more "simple" than MPC-HC too?

i just prefer vlc's interface. it runs quicker for me too. it plays my dvds fine (after deinterlace---bob)

As a personal preference sure, I can understand that, but that still didn't answer how it's simpler, or what codecs K-Lite supports that VLC doesn't support, which you actually use ...

Both interfaces look almost identical really :-/

Using Windows 7 - EVR Custom renderer is selected already and it still won't work. :crying
