Sorry I haven't got any notifications on my email.

It seems the ISP finally deleted the site which they notified about couple of years ago.

I uploaded the files in OneDrive. You should be able to get those from there.

I updated the MPC-HC path on the registry settings files. I'm not sure if they have renamed any of the keys so those would be worth checking. For example there is "Remember DVD Pos" and "Remember File Pos" and on the reg file it's dword:00000001 and I don't think MPC-HC has continued playback where I left them for a while. So they changed the name of the registry key or it should be dword:00000000. But yeah there are alot of settings on MPC-HC registry to tweak if you want.

Also I recommend using MadVR to get automatic display mode switching when playback starts and ends. On this example it switches to 24p when playback starts and restores to whatever you use after playback ends.

I'll add the source code in OneDrive later if someone someday is interested doing something about it. This was just something really simple I did for my own needs and it took maybe a day to do and test. Of course it took a lot of time to investigate DLL's etc how PowerDVD and other BD players that had WMC plug-ins did it back in the day. It could have a settings to select player and it basically could launch any external player. But it has done everything I need for almost 8 years now so I haven't bothered. It's written in C# (VS 2010 or 2012). You could start your own thread about it and no need for credits as I just copied what PowerDVD and others did and you would probably write everything from scratch anyway :)

Do you get User Account Protection popup when launching BD/mkv from Movies Library? I started to get it today. I think that the certificate is expired and I need to compile it again with new certificate.

I updated the registry settings file as some of the keys were renamed in MPC-HC since I made this.

For some reason I get the UAP prompt now when launching movie. I don't know if it's because I updated to Win10 2004 or the fact that I'm using WMC 8.8.4 now instead of V12/V13 that I used previously. You can disable the UAP prompt by moving the slider to bottom in Windows settings.

Edit:
Tried this with another PC. Clean install of Win10 2004 and installed WMC V13 + SQL fix. No UAP prompt when launching BD. So it must be a problem with WMC V8.8.4 or just something wrong with my install on Media Center PC.
