So I was bored and decided to check out VLC, couldn't help but notice how it gives more "vibrant" colors than MPC which makes everything more bland.

I always thought it was VLC the one that washed away colors but I guess I was wrong. I do prefer them more washed away in some occasions though but the rest looks better when they're vibrant.

For example in pic 1 I prefer VLC for miles but in the second I prefer MPC since those eyes look kinda weird.

Because I'm not setting up an RSS feed just to watch some fucking cartoons.

Are you fucking retarded?

Yeah, I'll pass.

I know what you're talking about. I prefer VLC's colors for live-action, but I stick to MPC for animation because it's more accurate.
>>
>>134923116
You can download while you're watching anime
>>
>>134923148
Or I can just stream which is still less effort
>>
>>134923174
>less effort
All you have to do to download anime is search for a torrent and download it. How is that more effort?
>>

>>134919505
There's no inherent difference in colors between VLC and MPC, it comes down to settings, graphics card drivers, etc. For MPC it depends what specific filters are in the output chain for decoding and presentation.

At one point in time VLC's default settings resulted in inaccurate colors for a large number of users. Properly configured there should be little to no difference in colors.

In terms of scaling quality and effectiveness of hardware acceleration a properly MPC chain or mpv will win over VLC every time. And yes, even 1080p on a 1080p monitor needs scaling because nearly every file has less chroma resolution.

Because instead of doing that I can go to a website, check my bookmark, and then hit play. Get with the times ojisan we have html5 now.
>>
>>134923895
Instead of doing that I can open my file manager, select my anime and hit play. I don't even have to use a webbrowser and I can use a proper video player.
>>
>>134923024
That's nice, but if you don't care about your anime, you shouldn't be on /a/.

>>134924530
>you need to have autism to be on /a/

I love lolis and incest as much as the rest of you fuck off

Sounds right to me.

VLC is the same shit as MPC, difference is that VLC needs a decent computer while MPC runs even on toasters, so if you have an old notebook MPC is the go to.

Of course there's things like madVR that put the edge for MPC but then you lose the toaster compatible advantage and it goes to consume more than VLC BUT the thing is, MadVR is a fucking meme.
Unless you watch anime glued to the screen(I for example watch it at like 5 meters away because I have a TV connected with HDMI to my computer) you won't notice the difference, you'll only if you do screenshot comparations like the ones you did because otherwise it's the fucking same.


VLC is also more user friendly which is why normies use it.

There might have been a point where VLC was shit, and I do remember the green screens but those days are fucking gone, we're in 2015 now.
The problem with /a/ is that people here live in a bubble and they get stuck in time, most anons think vlc is the same as it was 5 years ago.

But that's right though.

Is this the new meme?
>>
>>134926710
We have Displayport, DVI, and HDMI 2.0. There is no excuse.
>>
>>134926978
>Displayport
Admittedly awesome
>DVI
Just HDMI without audio, with annoying screw connectors. No reason to use it unless you don't have enough HDMI cables or connectors.
>HDMI 2.0
Still called HDMI. No one said HDMI 1.4 unless they were talking about specific improvements they were using, and no one will say 2.0 either.
