Windows 7: Poor/Pixelated Video Issues.

21 Dec 2009   #31

XP / Win7 x64 Pro

That is very interesting. My Intel Chipset drivers worked/installed fine. However, I may give this a shot as I don't have much to lose.

Thanks, satanic!

Solution - Windows 7 64 bit

I had this same problem of MKV pixelation with MPC-HC in Win7, 64bit, so I solved it by doing the following: In options > Internal Filters, under Transform Filters, make sure that H264/AVC(DXVA) is checked. I checked that, applied the settings, and restarted the same MKV video file and to my surprise, the pixelation was gone. Hope this helps others.

Windows 8.1 (x64)

i know this is quite old.. but wanted to chime in with my solution.
this problem can be annoying to no end, and everyone seems to know but have no real solution.

My problem: overriding default video aspect.
ie. i forced it to 16:9 (widescreen).

it caused pixelation, just horrible viewing experience.

Returned the setting back to default solved my problem.
- hope it helps.
