hi everybody

I would like to know, which Mediaplayer do you use, to what files downloaded from here.

Windows Media Player doesn't work at all, VLC Mediaplayer has some freezers when playing a file, I have downladed the normal one and also a HD Version... afraid

or do you use any software (freeware) to optimize the files ?  Blind

I use Media Player Classic, with the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. Never had any problems with videos Oo.

I use the latest version of Media Player Classic HC (Home cinema) http://mpc-hc.org/ - it is a much-improved version of their original program. Very occasionally it won't play a movie and then I use VLC.

My two progs to fiddle with the format are TMPGEnc Video Mastering and VideoConverter Pro - neither is free (although I didn't pay for my copies)

I guess my tastes are not as kinky as you, apparently, as I don't think I've ever run into a video the VLC didn't play just fine for me.  Actually now that I think of it, I did once have a hard time playing a blueray file of some sort (equivalent to the VOB files for DVD).. but it was just a matter of not playing the whole directory but selecting the specific file I wanted to play.

Related to VLC is Handbrake... they are related in that they use some of the same ffmpeg code in the back end (or at least that is my understanding, I have never delved into the code for either.)

Handbrake does not have the world friendliest UI, but it can do a pretty passable job of transcoding a file from some other format into MP4.  I have had to use it to transcode my 1080p video's from men.com to play on my TV or PS3.  It seems to properly support multi-core CPUs also, so it can be faster on a machine with more cores.  Handbreak can also resize and or limit the bitrate of files for other devices... such as for cellphones and portable gaming devices (PSP/Vita) as well.

On a vaguely related note, I am anxious for support for H.265 to grow... I believe it will allow better quality at the same bitrate, or smaller files with lower bitrate for same quality.  I won't consider H.265 to be a success until its the default output format for tools like Handbrake... which won't happen until most devices can successfully play it.

I always use VLC and never had it not play a video unless it was corrupted. The issue with converting is every time you change a format, you lose quality. Not a big deal to some but with VLC, I don't see the point.

+1 for Handbrake and their "decombing".

I use Totem, which comes with Linux. For the odd thing that it doesn't play, I then use VLC.

Install and watch. It also has a rather unique advantage of having 100% support for .ass subtitles, including advanced visual effects, as well as full support for 10-bit encodes.

For conversion: Aiseesoft Video Converter Ultimate. It has everything. h264 mp4/avi conversion uses both cpu and gpu, resulting in faster conversion with HD quality.

As a player, I use Gom Player.  To rip dvd files I use Aimersoft dvd ripper, but to get info about what is the size of a movie after I rip it. I need to see how many Mb do I get for different bitrates and then I calculate and eventually I rip dvd with Gilisoft Movie DVD Converter. I convert videos with Gilisoft video converter and I cut videos and put them back together with AVS video editor. I used many programs, but those work the best for me. Oh and if I want to cut many movies at the same place all at once, I use Gilisoft video editor.  blush

I use MPC-BE (Media Player Classic - Black Edition) is the same as MPC-HC, but its appearance is black. I think by his color, he's more discreet when playing a video.

I use VLC mostly.  If something doesn't play I use Media Player Classic.

MPC-HC

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema. Simple UI, better quality than VLC (I'm told) and a huge amount of plugins available, if that's your thing.

No you cant really compare because they are quite different. I use both. MPC is good because it uses not much cpu/ram and therefore no lag or very few on bad configuration (old computer)  BUT it relies on external codecs like most player . VLC use no codec ( or open source codec built in)  and you can tweak it big time even compile it the way you want and of course use it inside your own program ( I used it to create a program  for the Vorze "masturbator" in visual studio, you cant do that with MPC). VLC can do many things regarding streaming and is portable to any OS , MPC works on Windows.

I've started changing everything over to Kodi on the most part now. I find in Linux (at least with my hardware configuration), it usually plays most videos flawlessly. There's the odd video that it doesn't like, but as long as it's not WMV format, VLC takes care of it quite nicely. Smiley

I have used handbrake in the past but if it's a mkv H.264 container I use a program called rebox.net now, it basically just changes the audio and makes the file an mp4 so I can watch stuff on my PS3.

However it doesn't work with the H.265 format. I've used Handbrake with H.265 but audio always has like a slight echo/weird background sound.

I use MPC-BE, with LAVFilters & MadVR. Hell of a combination, and works near flawlessly for me.
