High Definition Movies using Media Player classic and ffdshow

Active Image
 
This document describes how you can play your divx/xvid files with a high definition resizer with ffdshow codecs / filters. The example is with mplayer (media player classic) but you can easily configure this codec / filters with your favourite movies player (ex. Zoom player). The result is similar with h264/x264 720p-1080p content or even better if you have a powerful processor…

 

 

First you need to download media player classic. Download from here:

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Media_Player_Classic.htm

I personally prefer Media Player Classic Home Cinema version. After you have install it (actually unzip it in a directory in your programs), download ffdshow codecs / filters from here:

http://www.free-codecs.com/download/FFDShow.htm

Install it and open FFDShow > Video Decoder Configuration. Now make the following changes:

 

Codecs: Make sure you have libavcodec for Xvid, Divx 3/4/5/6 and Other MPeg4. You can enable it for H.264/ AVC codec also, but I personally prefer a standalone codec for this type of HD content.

 Postprocessing: Make sure you have the following options:

Resize & Aspect: Make sure you have the following options. Here you can specify a custom size, for example 720p (1280×720) or 1080p (1920×1080). For 1080p you'll need a dual core processor at least, so try a resolution of 1280×720 or 2x multiply option first.

Make sure that Divx / Xvid are not enabled in internal filters.

 

That's it! Now you can enjoy your divx/xvid content almost in HD quality…

 

Thanks to Geomantis for his help and testing the best options in ffdshow.
