External Player MPC-HC stops/closes after 15 minutes

Recommended Posts

I've setup MPC-HC as an external player (to get audio bitstreaming) and everything is working perfectly except that about every 15 minutes MPC-HC stop/closes and returns me to the Emby WMC/Classic interface.  I checked the screensaver settings on Emby WMC thinking that maybe this was causing it but it is set to kick in at 5 minutes.  The PC itself has screensaver disabled.  Not sure why I keep getting dumped out of MPC-HC.  If anyone has anything thoughts that would be great.  I'm not familiar with MPC-HC as this is my first time setting it up and using it.  I pretty much kept vanilla settings except for changing output to use madvr and changing subtitle render engine.  Thanks for any assistance.

You can easily get audio bitstreaming without an external player but, to your actual issue, sounds like something is shutting it down.  A log might shed some light.

I'll see if I can find the mpc-hc logs.  As far as bitstreaming without an external player... the only way I have found to do that is using shark007 codecs and have found them difficult to configure as there are about a 100 guides with a 100 different "right' ways to set them up.

Install LAV instead.  Virtually no configuration required.

 

An EMC log is what I meant.

Sorry its an older post, but question why use sharks codecs at all, mpc-hc comes with lav codecs built in and has for some time (well over 12 months).
