This is pretty much purely out of interest, but could be useful to some.

MPC-HC is a fork of MPC but it includes native DXVA hardware acceleration of many formats including h264. It also includes the changes of the commonly used patched version including security fixes. It has EVR support too.

I don't have a compatible card yet, but i'd be interested to see what kind of CPU usage some of you would get with this. I can't get HE-AAC working on it with the samples, but maybe someone else would be able to by messing around in external filters. Make sure you enable h264 in internal filters.

This works for me - I added Cyberlink PDVD 8 filters and AC3Filter to the External Filters list, then I might have disabled the corresponding internal filters (they are not ticked now).

I was actually interested more in the internal filters. Try ticking h264 in internal filters, double click it and make sure the DXVA checkbox is ticked. Apparently this has hardware acceleration built in without using PowerDVD. After doing this, what kind of CPU usage do you get? Also when you right click the video and go filters, it should say "MPC Video Decoder".
