More information about this variant of the codec pack can be found on its contents and changelog pages.

Detailed differences between the four variants of the codec pack can be found on the comparison of abilities and comparison of contents pages. The other smaller variants are: Basic, Standard, and Full.

Version 15.5.0 Mega ~ 58.8 MB ~ May 29th 2020

Changelog:
  • Updated MPC-HC to version 1.9.3.5
  • Updated MPC Video Renderer to version 0.4.6.1292
  • MPC-HC now uses its internal audio renderer by default (on fresh installs). This has some benefits such as automatic pitch correction. Please report if you get any audio problems because of this change.
  • Some improvements for file associations on Windows 8/10
  • Note: subtitle search in MPC-HC using OpenSubtitles now requires a login. OpenSubtitles has implemented this restriction because their servers are being overloaded now that many people are staying at home. You can create a free account on the opensubtitles.org website. You can then use these login details here: MPC-HC options > Subtitles > Misc > right-click on OpenSubtitles > Setup

Pro Tips

HDR Video Playback

To play such videos you need to use the included MPC-HC player and select Madvr as the video renderer. Madvr will automatically send the HDR metadata to your TV when it is HDR capable. Otherwise it will convert the video to SDR so you can watch it (with proper colors) on a normal monitor/TV.

You can select Madvr here:
MPC-HC options > Playback > Output > Video Renderer
Or during installation of the codec pack.

Note: currently only HDR10 format is supported. Not Dolby Vision.

3D Video

The codec pack contains a plugin for decoding H.264 MVC 3D Video. To properly watch such videos you should use the included MPC-HC player (64-bit version) and select Madvr as the video renderer. Outputting 3D video to your monitor/TV requires Windows 8.x/10 (or Windows 7 with a modern NVIDIA GPU).

Note: playback of SBS (side-by-side) and Top/Bottom 3D video does not have the above requirements. Such videos are actually encoded as 2D video. Your TV should have an option to turn this into 3D.

In case of NVIDIA you must use driver version 418.xx or older. 3D support was removed in newer versions.

Blu-ray

MPC-HC is capable of playing Blu-ray discs. There are just two limitations:
1) It doesn't support Blu-ray menus. It automatically plays the longest title on the disc. Other titles can be accessed through the Navigate menu of the player.
2) The disc must be decrypted using an external tool. For example AnyDVD HD or Passkey Lite.
