It strikes me that MPC-HC has issues when playing a DVD from HDD incase there is a menu.
The DVD start page comes up
There is a menu, select which episode, from that point on: the playback buttons are greyed out - spinning circle.
DVD's without a menu play well.
Am using MPC-HC in default settings, no external filters.
Later: I tried VLC Player x64 on a virtual machine. Default settings. No issues with the menu.
VLC starts pixelated / 'blocky' for one second, but after that everything is okay.

No, not all DVD's, but the ones with a 'user created episode-selection' menu.
So a DVD that has a menu with
When selecting an episode (any episode), the playback buttons are greyed out and I got this spinning circle.
Other DVD's, with 'normal' menu's (play movie, chapter selection, languages, etc.), they play well.
As said, I downloaded VLC 2.2.1 and no problem with the menu's.
User created episode-selection?
VLC Player is known as a player not to use for testing out home-made DVDs.
i'm using ver 184.108.40.20666 ?
over the Xmas weekend i authored a DVD of 5 separately recorded Xmas specials from the 1960's
mpc-hc plays this perfectly , no problems choosing which title to watch
authored with avi2dvd, and NOT the latest version, mines about a yr old, 6 mo at least, it still has Qnec encoder in it
MPC will just skip the bad part and just play the audio with a black screen until the next key frame. VLC will just play you the damage part without hiding it. Since your video is 1:47 long, I would bet it's a cut video.
Could be, I don't know. MPC shows a black screen, nothing happens, not after 10 seconds, not after a minute. MPC hangs.
Note that the the above distortion was just 5 frames. I made a screenrecording of it and then imported it into a video editor (that is why it is just 1:47).
Only in the editor I could make a screenshot of the distortion which took maybe a second or so and therefore I was unable to capture it using a regular screencapture tool, such as FastStone.
