I know I'm asking for handholding out the ass, but what do you usually use for viewing movies/shows/animu and why?
Notepad, because it's flexible, has the best performance, and doesn't hold your hand.
MPC-HC et al is the only correct answer. If you don't know how to set it up, CCCP or KCP will provide all the handholding you need.
mpv is objectively best
I don't even know what I'm looking at.
Is this it?
I guess I'll look around on their website forums on how to use this thing.
Just go to the website and install.
Unless you're not using windows.
Korean video player that needs no codecs installed.
How fucking retarded can you be?
Either get a codec pack with it set up or just you know, read the fucking settings
It's good, but it's proprietary.
Seconding >>101782711's recommendation for MPC-HC.
Try SVP while you're at it too.
By the way please try searching the /a/ or /g/ archives before making a new thread. Remember that every new thread made is an old thread deleted.
So *that's* how you take screenshots with notepad. I thought my madvr was out of date.
Notepad is the best one to use, but MPC is good too.
both scaled to 75%
not sure if anti-placebo, but they appear to be the same.
I'll give it a run through of a few episodes to see if that blurry shit and random blocks fuck off.
Come on now guys.
K-lite, in years i trowed every kind of file at it and it always worked perfectly.
Only time I ever experienced a difference was with R.O.D the TV, where MPC would cause spots of sudden lime green where VLC wouldn't.
VLC: Media for the blind and stupid.
VLC is not using Lanczos for scaling by default. Beyond that its colors filters thats a little different, but its minor. Filter support for 10p, such as sharpen and contrast adjust was also gotten later than other codec packs.
But its minor.
pic related is why
Enjoy your proprietary software, faggots.
mpv -vo=opengl -hwdec=vaapi
Still using lachs0r's defunct mplayer2 and SMPlayer2 builds, because they let me watch 720p on my toaster and I've been feeling too lazy to try anything else ever since they died.
Also thank you Deadfish for saving me from Daiz.
install gentoo faget
This page literally tells you everything to do, but if you go to it, it means you are a faggot that needed your hand held.
are you a faggot?
well, after watching bits and pieces from a few shows and playing around with all the options and shit, I love it.
It's going to take getting used to seeing that horrid icon instead of the ol' orange parking cone.
If there's anything I can complain about, it's this.
While watching shit, it goes through a green bar as if it were downloading something, which is annoying as shit.
Since it's something so minor, I haven't been able to find a way with my Googlefu to turn it off.
Other than that, thanks a ton guys.
How does one become this retarded?
Look through each section in Options, retard.
is prably ther furst time on the compuda
It's genetically coded.
found it, thanks
"use windows 7 taskbar features"?
I guess I overlooked it because I'm retarded and rush things.
Either way, thanks.
Just get Kawaii Codec Pack.
I have mpv, does setting -vo=opengl-hq do anything?
announcing that you reported something is also against the rules, faggot.
Now you're on the same level as the rest of us.
Add xySubFilter if you want HD sub rendering even when upscaling
Add madVR if you want to mess with smooth motion, debanding and scaling algorithms.
not OP but thanks for posting that link bro, gonna give this a bash now
Can you actually view videos with notepad?
MPV > MPlayer >>>> MP-HC
What do you think?
