Hardware Acceleration

Post by Krogal »

Hi' I've been using MM for a while now as my main video display for my TV, connected to my pc with hdmi.

I've recently bought a 4K TV and when playing 4K videos in MM it lags a little bit, I've checked the system performance and the CPU is at 80-90% while the GPU is like at 10% or something like that (CPU is i5 4Ghz and GPU an Nvidia GTX1070).

I tried the same with VLC media player and the result was about the same, until I checked the hardware accleration option in the VLC settings, then the performance was CPU around 15-20% and GPU 30% or something like that, and no lag whatsoever.
I've checked the MM settings and I could not find this option, is there any plugin for this?

I have MM codec pack extension and FDDshow installed.

Native DXVA Hardware Acceleration is in work for MM55, but in MM4.x you should check if you can enable it inside LAV Video Decoder (Icon in Tray).

Also I Suggest using K-Lite codec Pack as it has some Tweaking tools to improve Hardware Acceleration support.
