And also the folder in %appdata%.
Download the ZIP file and extract to a folder of your choice. Create a new file - mplayerc.ini (mpc-hc.ini for Home Cinema), open in notepad and add 1 line of code:

Code: Select all

[Settings]
Launch mplayerc.exe (Media Player Classic)
Launch mpc-hc.exe (Media Player Classic - Home Cinema)

The newer version doesnt create the appdata files
even when you set the player as the default for certain file types
It keeps the files in the program folder now

C'mon now Nap', you didn't even test that did you? :)

It's possible you misread my post; on first launch without an 'ini' in app folder, reg entries and folder in %appdata% are created/left behind.

I just meant the newer MPC-HC creates the same files but in the app's directory.

I always used MPC-HC as my default player so I always seen the default.mpcpl file was always there in the %userprofile%\appdata folders.
but I have also always used an ini file for settings so I didnt know that was why,I thought it was cuz I made filetype associations....if that makes any sense :)

Well, since I don't yet see a consensus, I just edited the entry to point to this thread. I don't want visitors to think that us linking to it means the program is naively portable.

Well I gave this a quick try but can't see it replacing KMPlayer on my system.

Did find it funny that the website goes on about being Vista compatible but no mention of Windows 7. Guess it's time for them to update their site.

Recent builds create:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Gabest\Media Player Classic
It's getting less portable :wink:

Edit: Already pointed out in the first page :D

Nice going, but I noticed you listed 'system codecs' as a dependency.

There's options to use system codecs but I don't think it's a dependency.

I followed the Media Player Classic entry when I created the MPC-HC entry. "System codecs" was listed as a dependency of MPC.

Feel free to edit the dependency field of either entry. :)

Looking at the "Video - Players" category, Media Player Classic is the only player that has "System codecs" mentioned as a dependency. It has always been there, so it's Andrew who originally decided to mention codecs in the dependency field.

So yes, I think "System codecs" should be removed from the dependency fields of both entries. I'll wait overnight (GMT+2): if no one either objects to the change or commits it, I'll do it.

It's also less unicode compatible in the portable mode because, for some reason, the ini file has to be encoded in ANSI.

these are the known keys so far:

Code: Select all

HKCU\Software\Gabest\Media Player Classic
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Gabest\Media Player Classic\ExePath
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gabest\Filters\MPEG Video Decoder
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Gabest\Media Player Classic

You can export the *.REG in the MPC options, then you have only to set a minus sign [-HKEY_CURRENT ...
and "a-click-on-the-REG" for clearing the registry ... :)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gabest\Media Player Classic]
