I upgraded to dB's latest software (Version 17) and it couldn't read the first 2 discs I was ripping for my music server, and they weren't obscure discs.
It looks like it dumped AppleMusic as a metadata provider (or vise versa).
The ripping processes has also slowed down.
My advise is don't waste your money on the downgrade from v.16 to v.17
I use a media player with its own codec packs - only wanted this because H.265 files did not have thumbnails in Windows Explorer.
Passed the scan on VirusTotal.com and seems to be legit, thumbnails were working instantly after install.

It can open the file, but the loading speed is very slow. Can't wait for a newer version.
Great!! Keep this website & Great development for free and Keep Alive.
Recently MPC-BE has been causing recent Nvidia display driver to crash/restart when run with a video. Hopefully that got fixed in some hours!
I think Light Alloy is best player on market.
Slow and creates 2x bigger files!
The K-Lite Codec Pack is THE perfect choice for dealing with audio and video codecs on Windows enviroment (both DirectShow and Microsoft Media Foundation); I use it from a lot of years, never had a problem, never a conflict.
The Pack is based on the solid MPC-HC as default player and LAV filters as the core for the codec part.
The Codec Tweak Tool and GraphStudioNext are also great tools for changing all the intricacies of the filters, also for WMP.
Great user support too, and this is very remarkable for a free software.
The MPC Video Renderer is born from the old EVR Custom Presenter; IMHO this new renderer need to be polished, improved.
The scalers for example are just standard and text book Bcubic, Lanczos and Catmull Rom; on an Intel based system with HD4400U IGPU the visual quality is not comparable to the vanilla EVR with Intel DXVA Context Adaptive Scaler (Lanczos4 based, with edge detector filter, antiringing filter in upscaling only, sharp without obvious ringing).
Also, the video jitter is higher respect to vanilla EVR or madVR.
MPC-BE 1.5.5 x64 is surely (together with the great MPC-HC) the perfect choice on a Windows enviroment for users in search of a reliable, fast, mature video player.
The support from the russian developers is excellent, they fix bugs just in some hours, very fast and competent.
The internal decoders and splitter are very well integrated, there's no need of LAV filters.
The new MPC video renderer is yet a young project but we must support it as an alternative to EVR vanilla and madVR.
The LAV filters are the de facto standard for Windows users when dealing with audio and video codecs; the developer is talented and its filters (FFMPEG based) are focused on high quality direct playback from hard disk, less on video streaming content.
The D3D11 interface, together with madVR, are a solid video rendering path for the new 10 bit videos.
Yeh, I don't care for this, it's missing the CPU/GPU/RAM utilized info in the Display Stats.
My player of choice again (because PotPlayer added a stupid ad popup), now that somebody finally got smart and finally fixed the audio output bug with the "MPC Audio Renderer" (well, fixed meaning they just added a setting to avoid filling all speaker channels "when upmixing" -- but it should be called "when resampling").
ZPM is the most flexible multimedia player you can get for Windows.
If it doesn't suit you, then you are just unable to configure it. Best zooming, best time stretching, best filter stacking, best keyboard shortcutting... fast and without making any compromises.
I recommend the legacy install method to make it full portable and you are ready to go after a new OS installation. Ignore unmaintained language packs, this will confuse yourself and it's just making ZoomPlayer buggy - the almost only negative point plus it's not free (use a kg, try it, then to hell buy it or not...).
I hate commercials and just want to make you a little more clever than the mainstream.
I have about 30 other well known software players on disk and I try to be up to date with all of them but ZPM on my main PC has my love. XMPlay my heart. ;)
when u play video h265 with mpcbe it will stuck if u rewind or forward the videos.
it looks like rewind and forward haven't function stuck. fix man.
Full of ads, requires "registration" and giving an email (still waiting for more spam to arrive) and requires paid registration to remove watermark.
Uninstalled (not before 2 nagging screens offering $10 and then 70% discounts. Not interested at all.
Not worth the time to download.
Proper DVD codecs are missing and there is no help trying to find what needs to be fixed.
it can't play video hevc h265 normally, why?? mpc hc is king for h265. i hope u can fix that soon...
I'm used to watching my videos on the Movies and tv app of windows 10 so it did the trick for me. THANKS!!!
fastest encoder i had ever used.
i have downloaded 1.1,5.7 and upgraded with my licence key from 184.108.40.206 and it worked fine, but now it's crashed again.
i have emailed mp3jam again but all you get is the same standard email. i have given it two stars at a push. once you have upgraded it says now you download like a maniac!!!!!
can somebody please bring back mp3rocket
El mejor pack de codecs para Windows.
Lo he usado durante años y funciona muy bien. Lo he probado en Windows Vista, 7 y 10.
