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?

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.

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.
>>
>>102220421
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.
>>
>>102220768
>>102220796
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.
>>
>>102221079
So people who claim to watch anime at 60 fps are just /v/tards?

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.

>>
>>102221116
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.

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.

>>102221264

>>102220512
I don't really see a problem with this.
>>102220680
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.
>>
>>102222475
uh
It's playing at 120fps.
>>
>>102222634
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.

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.
>>
>>102222634
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

bsplayer.
It's the best.

>>102222766
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.

>>102222938
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.
>>
>>102222938
Yeah, just hide them if they annoy you. They are needed but you don't need to configure anything there.

I tried using KCP's bit-perfect audio mode, but it completely removes the dialog track from some releases.
What gives?

>>102223622
What's the difference?

>>102218582
>>102219493

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

>>102219057
good job giving me a laugh.
>>
>>102224132
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.

Make it longer though, it's too fast.

It's hard to find quality torrents for dubs.
