    so recently wmp12 my player of choice has stopped working with ffdshow, happened right after I updated the divx web player (odd), and now I can't get it to load anymore, it just uses the media foundation codecs again, I've tried the Win7DSFilterTweaker tool but it won't disable the dll's anymore, so I went and disabled them myself, then played a video and still no ffdshow, but the videos continue to play, wtf? i've killed the codecs, why are they still playing?

    what am I missing?

    I renamed the following;

    MP4SDECD.DLL
    MP43DECD.DLL
    MPG4DECD.DLL

    are there anymore?

    I loaded up graphstudio and it says ffdshow is now rendering video, but why isn't wmp12 doing it? I did try divx8 (the codec) and although it works I miss the features and you can't force YV12 decoding, i use that on ffdshow to get rid of jagged pixels.

    Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum area but i'm stumped as to why I can't get rid of the wmp12 codecs anymore or disable them :confused:

    it's not going to install loads of random codecs and mess everything up is it?

    so i have found out, as you said it's found some error's, lots of old powerdvd codec references, v9 & v10, this may take some time lol..forgot I updated to pdvd11 around the same time ffdshow broke.

    I'll see how it goes.
