ITT: Why VLC sucks.
>>
>>11336936
VLC has only one flaw.

It's perfect.
>>
>>11337017
0/10

Enjoy your hardsub hell.
>>
>>11337017
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
>>
>>11337074
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.
>>
>>11337156
I <3 you
>>
>>11337156
Boring anon is boring
>>
>>11337156

cccp + mpc + coreavc = god
>>
>>11337102
the dead are hard to wake
>>
So what's the best shit for linux?
>>
>>11337476
there's a ton, but mplayer is the one I use.
>>
http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/

The power of mplayer with an awesome GUI.
>>
wrong : Niryoku exercise book
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.
>>
>>11337778

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.
>>
>>11337156
Well said. I'd do the same if I could be bothered to.
>>
>>11337793
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.
>>
>>11337831
Oh, and ZoomPlayer lets you take screencaps on avi files (not mkv though)
>>
>>11337875
change the renderer and you can take screencaps with it
>>
>>11337906
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?
>>
>>11337845

command+f = fullscreen, what's the problem?
>>
>>11337933
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?
>>
>>11337933
That just makes the fucking window resize
>>
>>11337831
FUCK YEAH ZoomPlayer!!!
>>
>>11337778
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?
>>
>>11337978
No, that's called useless bloat
>>
>>11337965

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
>>
>>11337921
Go To
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..
>>
>>11337956
Old versions of free quicktime didn't allow fullscreen for some reason, so you may need to update it.
>>
>>11337499
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.
>>
>>11338138
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.
>>
>>11338338
Your computer sucks, and you need to use CoreAVC
>>
>>11338085
How do I turn on Rasterizer Output?
>>
>>11338705
LOL preferences subs
>>
>>11338188
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.
