Windows Media Center deinterlacing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have noticed that playing a DVD in Windows Media Center produced a nice smooth image from an interlaced video. How does Media Center deinterlace? Is this performed in software or in hardware (using the newer chips from NVidia or AMD)?

    I think the results in Media Center are among the best. But how is this achieved?

  • Hi Codrut,

    Did you ever found out the answer to your question?

    I'm wondering the same. Looking for an answer I stumbled upon your question. Got some footage recorded in 1080i that needs to be deinterlaced. Tried the different software deinterlacing options in VLC-player but the results are inferior compared to Media Player or 'Movies & TV'  app (W10). I suspect Media Player is using the hardware decoding (and deinterlacing) of my NVidia GPU. Any suggestion to get goods results converting to 1080 progressive?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately not :( I don't know why Medial Player produced a better video output. Sorry, you have to keep searching for the answer. Good luck!
