Development of the original MPC-HC project has ended. The few other developers that were involved have all lost interest.
But don't worry, MPC-HC is still very much alive!
My repository is a continuation of the original MPC-HC project.
I have been involved in MPC development for almost 15 years, even before MPC-HC existed, so consider my builds as the new 'official' releases.
MPC-HC does not have many active developers right now. So don't expect much new functionality or other big changes. The player already is mature and provides all functionality that most people need. MPC-HC is open source, so anyone who is interested can contribute fixes and improvements. You can submit patches to me, and when I think your change is useful, I will gladly include it in a future build.
Several people have already contributed improvements, fixes, and even new functionality.
Very short summary of changes: Includes latest LAV Filters Added dark theme Added video preview on seekbar Added support for new codecs such as AOMedia AV1 Added support for youtube-dl Added support for MPC Video Renderer Added A-B Repeat Subtitle performance improvements Lots of other useful improvements and additions in functionality Lots of bug fixes Lots of crash fixes
Read the changelog for a detailed list.
I will not actively work on new features. So please don't post any feature requests in this topic.
