Regression since mpv 0.25: wrong colors with hardware decoding on Windows #4804
mpv version and platform
0.24: last version not affected
Play a cartoon video with distinguishable colors and compare software decoding vs. any hardware decoding on Windows
Colors/image quality of hardware decoding copy mode vs. software decoding should be without difference.
Colors with DXVA2-copy look wrong.
0.26 software decoding:
Probably every video format is affected, I could also find the problem with other videos.
current (looks different to software decoding):
Would be nice if the issue with damaged chroma channel with any hardware decoding could be fixed for next release. :)
Thought so. old mpv:
It goes from CL=mpeg2/4/h264 to CL=unknown, consistent with the result (the chroma plane seems misaligned based on the screenshot). This is probably the same issue as the other one.
Some metadata does not survive.
Thank you, wm4! I can't recognize a difference to software decoding now.
