ITT: Why VLC sucks.
VLC has only one flaw.
Enjoy your hardsub hell.
cccp mpc > vlc
Is there any good subtitle\text plug in or something for VLC? I want to use it for streaming some stuff but haven't for reasons evident in OP.
libass and embeddedfonts sucks. Subbers should stick to SRT.
VLC is only for heroes
its the best if you dont have subs
It shouldn't be that hard for VLC authors to incorporate libass into it. VLC basically runs off libavcodec from ffmpeg anyways. Go bug them about it.
Oh God, I always override any fancy colouring when I use MPlayer. Any font other than Bitstream Vera Serif is shite, and any colour other than white is stupid.
I <3 you
Boring anon is boring
> Bitstream Vera Serif
cccp + mpc + coreavc = god
the dead are hard to wake
So what's the best shit for linux?
there's a ton, but mplayer is the one I use.
The power of mplayer with an awesome GUI.

correct : Nika exercise note book
As a Macfag, VLC runs the best for me, but the subtitle overlap is unbearable, so I stick with Mplayer, which won't let me switch audio tracks on .ogms.
I still cannot wait till I can afford to switch to windows and get CCCP Coreavc MPC, and have no more problems ever.
Try quicktime with perian. The only problem's I've found are things like not paying ogms.
I have CCCP and CoreAVC.
I found "ZoomPlayer" on my computer, thought I'd give it a shot.
Works great, never had any problems, ever.
Well said. I'd do the same if I could be bothered to.
Well, dual audio ogms are basically the only reason I haven't deleted VLC for good. The other is screencaps. And I've heard Quicktime doesn't allow fullscreen.
Oh, and ZoomPlayer lets you take screencaps on avi files (not mkv though)
change the renderer and you can take screencaps with it
how do I changed renderer, I am not good with computer (yet, lol)
Just to clarify:
MPC+Coreavc+Russia basically runs any format, has easy to customize subtitles, easy to switch audio tracks, easy to take screencaps, and good quality?
command+f = fullscreen, what's the problem?
Just something I heard. Guess I heard wrong then.
Do I have to have a recent version of quicktime, or will the one that came with this pre-intel chip fossil do?
That just makes the fucking window resize
FUCK YEAH ZoomPlayer!!!
You can change ogm audio tracks with the -aid 0/1 (or whatever) switch.
Its called "codec packs" and WMP.
WTF! Why aren't you guys using a REAL player like KMPlayer or MPC?
No, that's called useless bloat
Go into preferences then.
KMPlayer > All
Don't forget to use VMR9 renderless and Rasterizer Output for SUPERIOR quality subs. Pisses all over DirectVobSub.
>>KMPlayer > All
Options > Playback > Video, and choose Haali's Video Renderer in the drop down list (if you have CCCP installed)
I heard it might slow down video in some older computers, but not mine so..
Old versions of free quicktime didn't allow fullscreen for some reason, so you may need to update it.
Mplayer does everything that I want. I'm comfortable reading documentation and editing my config files. What does smplayer have to offer? Serious question here.
I only use Alt Quicktime for webpages that stream shitty GT video. Other than that it's a complete pile of shit and people are idiots for using it.
The subs looking stretched on mplayer is because the PLayResX and/or PlayResY values are not right. They should be the actual resolution of the video (before stretching, if it's anamorphic), but many subbers leave it at 640x480 because it still looks right on CCCP for some reason.
KMPlayer is awesome, but it seems pretty slow to render special effects on softsubs, such as lines fading in and out and stuff.
Hey guys, I have a problem with some group's releases lagging like ass in both VLC and MPC. I've noticed the problem so far only with w.0.0.f.'s True Tears and SpoonSubs release of Sketchbook. I'm kind of computer retarded, is there some reason why I'm failing with these shows specifically?
Top left: Quicktime+Perian
Top right: VLC, disappearing subtitles
Bottom right: Mplayer, very basic subtitle configuration.
Dammit, I need a PC.
Your computer sucks, and you need to use CoreAVC
How do I turn on Rasterizer Output?
LOL preferences subs
I believe the way directshow works on Windows, that vsfilter does not know the playback resolution. So I'm guessing it simply renders the text based on PlayResY as a scale and PlayResX is used for relative positioning. Either that or it is intentional and mplayer is doing it wrong.
This statement is backed by zero research.
