LAV Splitter is a Souce Filter/Splitter required to demux the files into their separate elementary streams. LAV Audio and Video Decoder are powerful decoders with a focus on quality and performance, without any compromises. All LAV Filters are based on the FFmpeg multimedia libraries (licensed under GPLv2).

LAV Filters are a set of open-source DirectShow filters, aimed to eventually replace the better part of the playback chain required to play all and any modern media. It is based on ffmpeg and libbluray and is aimed to offer an all-around solution to perfect playback of file-based Media as well as Blu-rays. LAV Splitter is a Souce Filter/Splitter required to demux the files into their separate elementary streams. LAV Audio and Video Decoder are powerful decoders with a focus on quality and performance, without any compromises.

Other features:

  • Full support for multiple video/audio/subtitle streams in one file (switching between streams natively supported)
  • Support for Matroska embedded fonts
  • “Smart” stream selection, based on preferred languages and quality
  • "Forced” Subtitle handling

What's New:

LAV Splitter

  • NEW: Support for "demuxing" AviSynth scripts (requires AviSynth, 2.6 recommended)
  • NEW: Support for reading ICY stream metadata from ShoutCast streams
  • Fixed: The duration of DVB MPEG-TS files is being detected more reliably
  • Fixed: The ITrackInfo interface was not available in the last few versions
  • Fixed: The duration of certain Ogg Vorbis streams was wrong
  • Changed: DTS-HD audio tracks are now exposed using the official DTS-HD media type, in addition to the old DTS type
  • Workaround: Block WMP/WMC from always overwriting the initial track selection

LAV Video

  • NEW: Support for Duck TrueMotion 1/2
  • NEW: Support for BT.2020 in YCbCr -> RGB conversions
  • Fixed: Format conversion could cause out of memory errors when converting high-resolution videos
  • Fixed: The decoder could crash if DXVA2 decoding failed and the software decoder is unavailable
  • Fixed: Reduced binary bloat caused by the YCbCr -> RGB converter, reducing binary size to nearly half
  • Fixed: Playback of RV30/RV40 was not smooth in 0.60
  • Fixed: Video corruption when using DXVA2 on Intel GPUs when decoding certain VC-1 or MPEG-2 clips
  • Fixed: Decoding WMV3 Complex profile automatically falls back to software, since hardware decoding is unsupported
  • Faster: DXVA2 Copy-Back decoding on Intel GPUs is significantly faster
  • Changed: If the wmv9dmo decoder is unavailable, the FFmpeg decoder is automatically used instead
  • Changed: Updated QuickSync decoder to the latest version, fixes a few timestamp issues
  • Changed: Relaxed the resolution checks for H.264 decoding on AMD GPUs, allowing files with 2K resolutions to be decoded (ie. 2048x1280, etc.)

LAV Audio

  • NEW: Support for ATRAC3+
  • Fixed: Decoding AC3 audio could produce glitches in playback due to too aggressive error checking
