This tab allows you to control which source filters to use for playback of certain file types. Unless there is a specific reason to change one of these settings and you are certain of what you are doing, it is recommended to leave all of these options at their default settings.
- - Source Filter Control
- Checked file types will be played using Gretech internal source filters.
Most video files you come across will be natively supported by GOM Media Player's built-in codecs. This tab lets you toggle support for various codec formats on and off. The contents of this list will be updated periodically as new codecs are introduced to your system.
Like with the Source Filter tab, changing any of these settings is not recommended under normal circumstances.
- - [Help] Button
- Brings up the following window:
- - [Select All] Button
- Checks all the boxes on the Supportable Codecs list.
- - [Select None] Button
- Un-checks all the boxes on the Supportable Codecs list.
- - Play in a single thread. Use when playback is choppy in a multi-thread environment.
- This option helps GOM Media Player play videos smoothly. Unchecking this option is not recommended.
- - Play to match the audio when audio out of sync (video comes after audio)
- When the video playback comes later than the audio playback, enabling this option helps GOM Media Player sync both of them based on the audio playback.
- - Enable Hardware Decoding(If possible)
- Use the internal hardware decoder for PCs.
- Enabling this feature helps decreasing CPU usage and can result in higher quality and smoother playback.
- [Advanced] : For more detailed settings for "Enable Hardware Decoding(If possible)", please press "Advanced" , and you'll be able to choose a Hardware Decoder such as Nvidia CUVID and Intel Quick Sync. Or you can even select "Custom" to set the decoders for each video format.
This tab allows you to disable certain filters that may be causing playback issues.
- - Disabled Filters List
- Sometimes external filters cause conflicts with GOM Media Player's built in filters and processes and hinder proper video playback. Filters with known issues are listed here and disabled. If you want to enable a disabled filter, simply uncheck it. Enabling filters that are disabled by default may, however, result in playback issues.
- - Disable Internal Filters Settings
- If you encounter an issue where playing a high-quality video consumes a large amount of CPU resources resulting in choppy playback, enabling quick play mode may fix the problem. It does so by disabling the internal Gretech Video Filter / Gretech Audio Filter to allow external filters to be used.
- [Disable internal video filter (Gretech Video Filter)] : Selecting this option will allow GOM Media Player to disable the internal Gretech Video Filter and external filters will be used. (Features such as video capture and rotate will become unusable.)
- [Disable internal audio filter (Gretech Audio Filter)] : Selecting this option will allow GOM Media Player to disable the internal Gretech Audio Filter and external filters will be used. (Features such as audio capture and stream select will become unusable.)
This tab allows you to customize which filters GOM Media Player uses when playing media files.
Click the radio button next to "Advanced: Customize filter priority" if you want to change which filters GOM uses. You can then add filters and customize their priority by clicking the [Add Filter] button and adjusting their status under the "Condition" heading.
Clicking the [Add Filter] Button will open the Filters window pictured below.
Click on a filter and then click the [OK] button to add it to the Filter Priority list.
Click the [Browse] button to search your computer for filters manually using Windows explorer.
Click the [Cancel] button to close the window without adding any filters to the Filter Priority list.
In this image we’ve added a filter called the “AC3Filter” to the list. We can now set its condition on the right.
- - Disable
- Disable the filter entirely.
- - Highest
- Set the filter to highest priority, telling GOM Media Player to use this filter over any other filter that performs the same function.
- - Priority Option
- Set the filter priority manually by inputting a numerical value in the box.
After selecting a filter, you can click the [Delete] button to remove it from the list.
