I have been using MPC-HC for YEARS! Up until today it has played absolutely everything that I have thrown at it. But now I have one video that I cannot get to play. It does play in VLC, but I would like to get it to play in MPC as I prefer that player.
I don't know a whole lot about this, but I have attached the Media Info, hoping someone here can help me get this to play in MPC. I don't want to blindly install a bunch of codecs, especially since I never have had to.
MPC is latest version.
Thanks in advance.

Give mpc-be portable a try and see if it plays. Mediainfo seems to imply there is some missing
info in the header, it cannot identify the codec - although Mpeg-4 Visual implies some variant of Divx or Xvid
Another option is to try avidemux and put it into an avi container.
Leave the video as "copy", change the audio to mp3
and choose "avi muxer" as the output format

Thank you so much for the info. I will try MPC-BE. I did look at that before writing my post but everything I found was older than the version of MPC-HC that I had. Your link seems to provide a much newer release. Is MPC-BE still being developed and maintained?
When you say "although Mpeg-4 Visual implies some variant of Divx or Xvid" and you meaning that it technically SHOULD play in MPC-HC?
Also I will give Avidemux a try as I would not only like to make it play on MPC-HC, but I would like to get the files size down a bit too.
If anyone else has suggestions, I would love to hear them.
Thanks again. I really appreciate the info.
The mod(s) do a very good job of administering the software. As you can see mpc-be is still being developed.
mpc-hc can certainly play Mpeg-4 visual; it could be that the missing codec info is to blame.
If you're interested in getting the file size down, in Avidemux, re-encode the video to mpeg-4 AVC.
Where it says video:copy change it to mpeg-4 AVC. Hit configure, and on the general tab, deselect "use advanced configuration"
and set preset to "very fast". OK out
Leave the audio as copy
Set "output format" to mp4 muxer.
