What video player does /a/ use?
MPC with excessive encoding shit.
Just use VLC unless it begins to screw up.
god tier MPC obviously
inb4 whoa there fag
but I thought VLC is for faggots.
VLC is better now that it's had the updates. I use the /a/pproved video player though.
On topic, if you have to ask, get the fuck out.
I don't lurk enough to learn it by osmosis, so I had to ask.
Isn't it better that people want to improve themselves than keep being ignorant?
>I don't lurk enough to learn it by osmosis
Then get the fuck out.
Daum Potplayer + LAV Filters + MadVR + XySubFilter
I like Potplayer better than MPC-HC because it has a better playlist manager, and it hides the player controls while playing which you still can show up with a single mouse swipe and some other nice stuff.
Windows Media Player
I stream my anime and i don't give a fuck what some /a/utist have to say
Why are you even here?
I stream, torrents take too long and by the time a decent encode comes out there are spoilers of the episode everywhere.
Why i can't be here
Fuck off, streams are just as good as downloads
Downloading an episode takes around 4 minutes. Admit it, you're just lazy.
>Fuck off, streams are just as good as downloads
If you live in a shithole, i doubt it
It's not my case though
>inb4 Daiz shitposts in this thread and ruins everyone's day
Nigga, you must be blind if streams are as good as downloads.
Streams are just as good as downloads if you know absolutely nothing about video quality I suppose. McDonalds is also just as good as a nice restaurant if you don't know anything about food.
Let them be retarded, it's not like they'd be streaming in the first place if they listened to logic.
VLC. Watchu gon do boot it?
PotPlayer with integrated SVP Manager
>tfw glorious 1080p running at 60 fps
Crystal clear and extremely smooth video works best with action-y scenes. And hentai.
Daiz recommends CCCP (MPC HC + whatever it has nowadays) for Windows and mpv for OS X/Linux
Dont' say his name. You'll summon him.
Yes they are.
>OH HEY GUYS! LOOK! LOOK! I'M EATING ALL THIS SHIT HERE, AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.
Like I give a shit if you don't care about quality. Just shut the fuck up about it.
Because i use it to watch streams too
/g/ pls go and stay go
Oh looks like somene is mad because they use VLC, bad to be you fagtron
>I'm not getting angry
I used MPC-HC with MadVR filter before but I had some issues with flashing subs when there was more than one line at once and it taking 3-4 seconds to start playing so now I just use CCCP.
I didn't even notice the thread was still going.
Thanks, I'm using it right now.
And thing about hentai, I can't ever find any in good quality.
All I ever seem to come by is 2003 480p crap.
Sometimes with Spanish subs.
Daiz is responsible for:
[/] killing threads
Fansubs are the only ones that actually do proper encodes, and they usually take days/weeks to release a single episode, I'd rather stream when it's an airing series and then get the BDs if I liked it enough.
MPC with KPC. It just werks.
What's wrong with mpv? No GUI 2hard4u?
>and they usually take days/weeks to release a single episode
I'm sorry, are we living in 2006 again?
Spanish subs are great and only gringos cocksuckers watch chinese cartoons in english
Windows Media Player.
Have you checked on nyaa? Though I guess it's about finding something worth downloading.
I only learned about Nyaa yesterday.
I never downloaded anything from there.
Fuck off, newfag.
Just from the top of my head, Underwater recently took 2/3 weeks to release a saki episode and FFF still hasnt released the last few episodes of NNB
Actually, it's not even compatible with my OS, so I've never used it, but as far as I know it's just tryhard /g/ shit with little to no practical advantage over MPlayerX / MPlayer Extended with mplayer2.
>mfw watching animu in 60fps+ for the first time
Never going back.
No you fuck off old fag, it's time to find a life
I figured this would happen senpai.
>Usually take weeks
If you're going to have to make huge exaggerations when you make an argument for doing something, don't you think that's just lying to yourself?
Pretty much everything worth watching gets subbed within a day or very rare cases two, with the average being maybe 10~12h behind the Japanese release. And where do you think the streamsites gets their versions?
Just admit that you're lazy and don't care for good quality.
It is a fork of mplayer, and improves certain aspects of it.
But isn't the anime only in like 7fps? For the most part atleast.
Yes, they are from /v/ i bet
I stream the raws.
They're always around 24fps. It's the regular fps standard.
You mean OS X? MPlayerX can't even render colors correctly (too dark reds) and doesn't support ordered chapters. Even VLC is better (to be honest it only sucks on Windows)
vlc on linux with xv output plays 10bit without banding on my underpowered 1.5Ghz quad core laptop, with slightly better caching for usb3 external. It just werks.
But I prefer mpv because I can format my screenshots to have filename, time and date fields like cccp, customizable hardware workarounds, and include a bunch of filters that you'd expect to see in madVR. I'd show you my patebin of my mpv config, but I'm on my phone.
Yeah 24 fps.
You must have a lot of friends.
I run Evangelion at 120fps on my GeForce 2
What settings do you use for SVP? The settings for anime in SVP gives me black moving bobles at the edge of the screen in fast action scenes.
Zoom Player Free does everything I need it to.
Extended with the mplayer2 binary supports ordered chapters. I wasn't aware of any colour rendering issues, but then, I guess they can't be that bad.
Someday I'll get myself a decent machine with properly-configured MPC-HC, but until then, this isn't too bad.
MPC-BE, those slight improvements over MPC-HC make it much nicer to use.
That sounds weird. Does it also stutter? It needs a strongish CPU.
>They're always around 24fps
Do you seriously believe that or are you just trolling with me?
The only example I can remember of such a high fps-rate would be the [C] ed, otherwise the standard for a series is around 7 fps since such a thing as a budget exists. It doesn't matter if the video is set at 24fps if it isn't being animated at that speed.
does /g/ still hate anime?
Like what this anon said >>102219265
They're from /v/
10~12hs Is enough for the entire catalog to be filled with spoilers if there is a controversial episode, and avoiding /a/ entirely for that long is not really an option, and if you compare horriblesubs rips with a stream the quality barely better.
Congratulations, you just made the most retarded post of the day.
they basically heard about the hobbit movie, learned what the standard movie frame rate is, and assumed it extended to all media.
Huh? It never drops or goes above 24 or so. What are you on about?
/g/ never hated anime
is it that a video player for girls
Nope, It just works smooth but it only has some artifacts and that wobbling screen edge issue what i had.
But I'm happy with smooth motion. Even it doesn't have the smoothness of SVP, it doesn't make artifacts. Especially when I'm watching anime on a 46'' TV.
It's like you don't understand what a frame rate it.
Hint: the animation rate is not the frame rate. The animation rate changes, the frame rate does not.
Windows media player.
But /g/ is a bunch of normalfags.
Do you even know what fps is?
Exceptions that proves the rule.
Crunchy takes their time to sub as well after the Japanese version is released with HS following up right behind it, and all other streamsites get their stuff from other streamsites/fansubs. It doesn't take any longer to get a release on nyaa that it takes for your usual streamsite.
ive always used the divx player
You could probably make madVR set it to 23p mode automatically for anime, no real reason to use smooth motion.
I like to use Winamp.
Really? I'm only there for the desktop threads. I guess progamming threads are fine too but the rest are shit
Do you people even understand what still frames are?
Guess fraps can't into decimal points.
Correct fps is 23.34 (for this video at least)
Is this a joke? I'm a pleb using MPlayerX but I haven't used that since like, the early 2000s.
Although idk what people are talking about with no ordered chapters and too dark of reds on MPlayerX, I have it and neither of those have ever been an issue for me.
Get CCCP, it works great.
>inb4 "VLC is great, you just have to get used to it"
Dell media direct
Even if there is a still image appearing on the video, frame rates do not change. They're always constant with the video. Basically, it still adds frames on top on eachother, even if the video doesn't move at all. Are you talking about animation rate?
Tried, but the audio de-syncs for a sec sometimes when playing. Which is why i use 60Hz for video playback + smooth motion.
nope, not joking. I stick with what works, and for me that divx on win xp sp2
That's episode's length...
I downloaded MCP.
How does one go about that FFDshow raw filter?
MPlayerX is fine if you're not autistic about quality. It has a really neat UI and it just works
Windows Media Player with MadVR and LavFilters
>I have it and neither of those have ever been an issue for me.
What? MPlayerX just straight-up doesn't support ordered chapters. If you mean you've never watched a release that used them, that's one thing, but you're bound to run into it eventually.
If you have the latest version of OSX, I guess mpv really is the best option, but otherwise, MPlayer OSX Extended also supports ordered chapters and is basically the same thing,
Alright, since shit is being thrown all over the place:
There are two separate things that are measured in the same unit: FPS
1) How many Frames Are Drawn and shown in a second: This can range wildly from scene to scene but usually vary in the 7-30 range approximately.
2) How Many Frames Are Produced by your Monitor/TV. This can also vary but does not do so scene to scene (unless chosen stylistically) and can be at 24FPS(usual)-30FPS (Unusual)
This difference is why new encoding techniques such as 4-4-4HiP can save so much space as the repeated frames that are drawn are only rendered once.
That's what I've been talking about since the beginning. They were talking about how ''smooth'' the anime looked when playing it in 60fps which is obviously incorrect.
Take >>102219896 chuunibyou for example. Go into the video, and see how many times you have to change the frame during movement to see a change in the characters, which would be three times.
24/3 = 8
So 8 different frames per second are animated for that particular anime, and remind you that chuunibyou has a pretty good budget compared to most other series.
Even if certain parts of a scene are being drawn at 8 fps, for example, other visual effects (thos that are added digitally) will still be rendered at ~24 fps. This includes foreground/background layers moving relative to each other, moving clouds, glints of light, shifts in colour or brightness, and so on. These kind of effects aren't always present, and sometimes scenes will truly remain the same for multiple video frames. This doesn't change the fact that the video, overall, is always at ~24fps.
So people who claim to watch anime at 60 fps are just /v/tards?
No. Search SVP.
>there are people on /a/ who don't use MPC
>This difference is why new encoding techniques such as 4-4-4HiP can save so much space as the repeated frames that are drawn are only rendered once.
Concept of I, P and B-frames is not specific to Hi444PP, I have no idea why you brought it up.
> They were talking about how ''smooth'' the anime looked when playing it in 60fps which is obviously incorrect.
Is is though, and noted, ONLY when there is some movement. It's not noticable when there is a still image or something. You'd really see it much smoother.
How about you give it a try and see it for yourself. I obviously can't put it into words.
And yeah my bad.
This '60 fps' thing is kinda bullshit; I'm no expert, but it, like, adds in frames that are horribly tweened. See the conversation here for an example: http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=437389
Still, even if it's a terrible method, you can get a 'smoother' effect, and it does work for anime because there are often things moving at 24fps even while the drawn parts are still.
Can you SVP with MPC?
Not everyone uses Windows
Yes, MPC-HC even comes with SVP 'codec pack'.
"I open my anime from the command line"
"I-i'm not a faggot, I swear!"
I'm no wizard.
This is dark magic for me.
Does anyone know if there is a way to compile the SVP avisynth libraries for use on avxsynth?
Or an alternative to SVP that works multiplatform?
How the fuck do you install mpv? I just downloaded the Windows 64-bit binary.
I think we need to summon daiz for this one guys.
Drag and drop video file onto .exe
Special effects like the sunlight made on the computer show up at the normal framerate since it's not regularly animated but made with CGI.
The things that are regularly animated, like backgrounds and characters only exceed the standard 7-8 frames in rare instances, as in not your standard anime.
But that's wrong since it's the exact same thing also during movement, since the majority of frames that your video displays are still frames.
Really? That doesn't sound very convenient.
I just used it as an example of a modern encoding algorithm, any proper one saves space by holding repeated frames.
Right click. Open with mpv. Set as default. Done.
Enjoy your faster load/seek times and slick ui. You just have to learn the keyboard shortcuts.
Fuck you. Try compiling that shit on OSX, then come back here and complain about how your pre-built Windows version is so hard to use.
Ah, thanks. That works great. I'm used to using barebones MPC-HC.
I've never used mac, but it looks like there are pre-built binaries on the mpv website...
I installed SVP, it says it's waiting for ffdshow video.
Does that mean my anime will be "smooth" or is there still something I have to do?
Assuming you did the complete installation, run svpmanager, and it will be in your system tray. Then open mpc and play a file, and it'll have text in the lower left hand corner saying "playing at 60 fps" or something like that.
>[OS X 10.8+]
Yeah, not if you aren't using iOS. But as far as I can tell, not even compiling from source works on 10.6.
It's in the system tray but it doesn't say it's running at 60fps.
Go to the folder you installed it and run the mpc that's there, play your animu with it. And what >>102222329 said
Go to the svp data directory then the folder MPC-HC and try using that specific mpc executable.
Why would someone not use MPC? Why would someone not torrent? It's so easy. Why?
I don't really see a problem with this.
I mispoke. I don't like the ordered chapters/cutting the op/ed, even if it saves space it tingles my autism.
And your icon should change to this. Also maybe you need to fiddle around with settings if you have stutter. Though it requires good CPU for it to run properly.
It's playing at 120fps.
I'm guessing your monitor is 120hz? By default it goes to the screen refresh rate, but you can set it to 60 fps in the settings.
Just right click on the icon, set the view to expert mode and then go to "video profiles" or something like that.
I can't check because I'm not on windows atm, I avoid it like the plague.
>not just pulling it from your package manager's repos
GNU/Linux mustard race.
I use MPC with madVR, but for some reason my audio goes way out of sync when in full screen. If I take it off full screen it resyncs and I end up doing it at least once every episode.
Yeah, because that's your monitor refresh rate (probably). Mine was playing at 75 fps.
Right click on the icon > video profiles > click on the one that's already selected > then change 'target frame rate' to 24->60 (2.5x) like >>102219650
It's the best.
Okay I got it.
Do I need haali media splitter and FFV in my task bar?
It's sort of annoying when there are too many icons there.
How has Daiz-sama not descended to this thread yet? He must be sleeping.
They'll go away when you stop watching the video. Otherwise you might be able to hide them with windows taskbar settings/the filter settings.
Yeah, just hide them if they annoy you. They are needed but you don't need to configure anything there.
Thanks anons, you've made my life better today.
Where is he from anyways?
You're welcome. :)
>Works so well I can't use it because my laptop is that shitty
I had to go back to vlc.
He looks like he's from eastern Europe, maybe Lithuania.
I tried using KCP's bit-perfect audio mode, but it completely removes the dialog track from some releases.
What's the difference?
Just DL'ed SVP and set it up on my CCCP+madVR setup.
I'm not usually one whose sensitive to timing differences but while CGI scenes looks smoother, hand-drawn scenes seem much more robotic and abrupt
good job giving me a laugh.
Quality went from good but laggy to terrible but the audio doesn't immediately desync.
I can't find any hentai on Nyaa.
It really depends on anime. I'm watching Ippo at the moment and I prefer watching it in regular fps.
Darn, thought I missed out on a hell of a story
don't feed the fag. I mean there's even a fucking "fap" button.
Make it longer though, it's too fast.
It's hard to find quality torrents for dubs.
stop trying to summon him
