Summary0000129: Delay when CPU is taxed (Using Avisynth) when next file is loaded when new exclusive mode is enabled
DescriptionI have a reasonably demanding Avisynth script I run which has my CPU generally working at around 30-50%, when my video finishes and MPC loads the next file in the playlist or folder I have a 1 second odd cut from the start of my next video. Disabling one of my major CPU consuming filters fixes the issue showing that it's only an issue when a high CPU usage scenario is in play.

Unticking 'present frames in advance' fixes the issue, surprisingly delaying full screen exclusive for 3 seconds doesn't work as judging from the OSD exclusive is enabled automatically when the next file plays (another bug?)
All other renderers have no delay issues with all filters enabled.

The following options were tried and had no impact.
- changing the frames displayed in advance
- changing the CPU and GPU queues
- delaying playback until the render queue is full

So it would appear to be only an issue with the new rendering path.
Steps To ReproduceIntroduce high CPU load during playback, let playback finish and progress to the next file.

New deband test build exhibits the same issue, just to clarify further with what I'm seeing, audio plays for half second or so (no picture is displayed) then audio stops for a second and then picture and audio then play normally.

Could you please double check whether the problem still occurs with v0.87.8? This is a difficult problem for me to reproduce because my CPU is very very fast. If the problem still occurs with v0.87.8, a debug log might help. Ideally with the "delay until render queues are full" option enabled.

Still occurring with 0.87.8b, The amount of frames presented in advance has an effect on this too, the smaller the better. I haven't been able to reproduce the starting stopping and starting of the audio as in my first note, it's simply a half second or so cut of the audio I assume it's the video frames too.
Unticking 'present frames in advance' still fixes the issue. I have produced a log.

According to the log in the moment when the new file is loaded, it takes 3.5 seconds for the media player to do anything. Then it takes another 3 seconds until the first frame is decoded and sent to madVR. So basically it takes 6.5 seconds before madVR even has a chance to do anything. After that is takes less than a second for madVR to display the first frame. So the majority of the delay seems to be outside of madVR's control. I've no idea why this would only occur with the new FSE mode and not with the old one, though. In any case, the log doesn't indicate any problem inside of madVR. So at the moment I've no clue what to do. Could be that Direct3D itself or the GPU driver gets stuck somewhere with the new FSE mode, when the CPU is so busy. Doesn't seem to be madVR's fault, from what I can see...

I guess if there's no workarounds using the new FSE mode then you can probably close it, just one of those things.
