mpc wont play anything -crashes everytime

  • woodlouse

    MPC used to work fine now it crashes when I open any media file with the message:
    "Media player Classic has encountered a problem and needs to close...etc"
    The error signature window displays the following:

    AppName: mplayerc.exe     AppVer:     ModName: dcdspfilter.ax
    ModVer:     Offset: 000028db
    Please help me to get MPC working again

      Unregister that DC-DSP filter.

        I'm having the exact same problem, with the exact same error message and info. I'd like to follow your advice but I don't know how to--how DOES one unregister a DC-DSP filter? When I go into Options-->Internal Filters I don't see that filter to uncheck. And there's nothing listed under External Filters. Is it a registry thing? Can you please tell me how to go about this unregistering?

      I had the same problem with the same error message about dcdspfilter.ax - and did the following:

      In WindowsXP, I clicked  Start / Run  and entered    Regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\system32\dcdspfilter.ax     and then hit enter.

      A popup window came up telling me that dcdspfilter.ax was unregistered successfully.  Then I opened MPC and presto, my videos play again :-)

      You can find info on Regsvr32 at the microsoft site here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/249873

      (remember you need the  /u  option otherwise it doesn't unregister the file!)

      Cheers and good luck!

      My MPC v: suddenly locks up when I click the FILE menu.  This started with and I downloaded the latest and greatest.  All the other Menus are operative.  There is no error report.  I have to terminate with Task Mgr.

      Ideas anyone?
