Is anybody elses MPC-HC being reported as ransomware by malwarebytes?
I just wanted to watch some anime
>kcp doesnt even do anything
Not sure what you mean here.
Are you saying it doesn't trigger malwarebytes?
Then what's the problem?
Some people are too retarded to realize they can get business-grade SEP for free.
It's just retarded people being retarded.
False positives happen all the time, especially with shit AVs.
If they're really this fucking paranoid, they can use virustotal and scan their shit through a variety of AVs instead of just one shitty one.
Symantec Endpoint Protection
It's a decent business AV suite, see comparisons at
You can download it from Symantec through the use of trial links, and install the unmanaged client for free in perpetuity. The managed client can't be installed, but consumers never needed that functionality to begin with.
They obviously didn't test it on win10, nor do they have any obligation to do it, because it's free software and provided as is.
tl;dr nobody gives a fuck about your problems, because nobody owes you anything.
Yeah, madVR's NNEDI3 is pretty nice.
Looks like mpv finally got an implementation in October, albeit some bugs.
what the fuck is malwarebytes?
Why would anyone use MPC-HC anymore when mpv is literally designed by weebs for weebs?

That has nothing to do with the video player, blame your compositor

It's not, that's just what people complain about.
what the fuck is this autistic shit

>mpc: press D to change X.
It's slow in madVR, too. Because it's fucking nnedi3, and you need a $300 GPU to use it in real time. Though I do agree madVR's implementation is much better. They're working on it though.
Protip: there are no algorithms that madshi invented in madVR. And since his implementations are secret (because madVR is closed source) he has no right to claim that mpv copied them.
He's acting like a whiny bitch about the competition.

And I'll consider switching once their product matures and has significant advantages to MPC-HC+madVR.
MPC-HC+madVR has gotten to the point where there are idiot-friendly versions, like Kawaii Codec Pack.
This was spurred because many people were noticing that MPC-HC+madVR was noticeably better than VLC and the like, but many people didn't know how to set it up.
So they spammed forums with tech support posts, and many various guides emerged on how to set it up. Eventually someone got fed up and made a version with graded, sane defaults, with commonly used options presented up front. That's KCP, and now anyone who asks how to set this shit up, is just directed towards KCP. Users can tweak around the default they choose for more options.
Right now configuring mpv with similar options is hell. It's splattered over disjoint forum posts and pages, and while someone willing to invest the effort to find, digest, and actuate those options may be fine, the large majority won't be. It's a significant disadvantage that people will notice when considering switching. Hell, it's one of the reasons so many people still use VLC relative to MPC-HC+madVR.
The difference is that MPC-HC+madVR brings something significant to the table over VLC, but what does mpv bring that KCP doesn't? The only conceivable thing is better platform support. Which is great for people on non-Windows platforms, but doesn't means shit otherwise. It actually hurts Windows users in that they're trying to make this multi-platform, as it leads to more balls to juggle, and subsequently more balls being dropped.
>ventually someone got fed up and made a version with graded, sane defaults, with commonly used options presented up front. That's KCP, and now anyone who asks how to set this shit up, is just directed towards KCP. Users can tweak around the default they choose for more options.
But that's not good. I would hope /a/ actually installs MPC-HC+madVR+xyvsfilters+lavfilter (though I think these are built in now?) instead of just downloading KCP and letting it do all of the work. KCP doesn't make madVR+MPC-HC better, it dumbs it down to common plebs who think they're superior because they're using defaults slightly better than VLC without even knowing why.
I used madVR+MPC-HC for years until I switched to mpv, and if you want my honest opinion it IS currently better. Not that you would even really notice the rendering quality in realtime playback, because we're mostly talking about placebo settings. And mpv devs actually implement and change things based on user feedback. You want to know how nnedi3 got implemented? A user asked about it and had a converstaion with the devs, a few days of discussing it and they had a working prototype. That doesn't happen with madVR, people suggest features, but it's ultimately up to madshi to code, test, and implement them. And if he can't do it/doesn't want to then you're shit out of luck.
In terms of playing back video, high quality rendering is almost indistinguishable on madVR vs mpv, but mpv is more actively developed by more people. And now it's financially backed by plex, so even more features are being PAID to be implemented. That's half the reason madshi is so mad, because plex picked mpv as a video rendering backend, not madVR.
>it dumbs it down to common plebs who think they're superior because they're using defaults slightly better than VLC without even knowing why.
jesus christ this elitism is getting a little retarded
He also acknowledges that they fixed a bug in one of his algorithms though.
the idea that they aren't giving him credit is kind of BS, since in their code and options they still have the filter named after him, what more should they do? he's just mad.
> because mpv has zero fucking functionality
I know that most people of /a/ lack brains to write properly, yet alone to know a thing about software https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/blob/master/DOCS/man/options.rst What I am really slightly concerned about is I don’t know why I feel neither a pity not a desire to laugh at them. I think I’m getting old.
>MPC-HC will never have convert.lua
>Having autoupdate on
Still rocking a version from July 2014
Why even use it, if 4kank doesn’t let webms having sound? It’s like having sex in a condom, like eating by injecting nutrient mixture right into the throat, like watching a cinema with a blindfold…
>You shouldn't buy a better car unless you learn enough about cars to be able fix it by yourself.
If you like one better, cool. If you know what you're doing, cool. Most people just want to watch their anime in better quality. KCP makes that possible without the time or expertise needed to assemble a marginally better suite of programs. That's a very good thing, because it opens up our hobby to a broader audience.
try the full list
Also I'm pretty sure spline36 are the defaults except for the higher tier KCP settings. And even then you can just set scale=ewa_lanczossharp and match KCP's highest settings.
Why opengl, when there are vaapi/vdpau?
>except for the higher tier KCP settings.
Most users who are using KCP for quality will choose high/highest and bring it down if their video stutters.
>And even then you can just set scale=ewa_lanczossharp and match KCP's highest settings.
And how exactly should users know this again?
What other settings will they need to tweak to match KCP's higher tiers?
My settings, I have no idea what half of this does, just copy and pasted from the thread on /g/.
ewa_lanczossharp is a tuned ewa_lanczos by hassn that's the highest quality image upscaler that either mpv or madVR has. Scaler-resize-only means exactly what it says, if you're playing 1080p content on a 1080p screen then no scaling is done, except for chroma. Sigmoid-upscaling further reducing ringing artifacts in blurry sources (DVD, VHS, shitty encodes). Waitvsync enables vsync, so tearing is reduced. pbo is pixel-buffer-objects, not sure about this myself since I don't know about low level opengl stuff. And blend-subtitles makes subtitles work with your upscaling and interpolation. AKA they'll blend with the video instead of being jarringly different than the video.
The equivalent of KCP's highest settings are vo=opengl:scale=ewa_lanczos:cscale=ewa_lanczos:sigmoid-upscaling:dscale=mitchell:correct-downscaling
To add anti-judder you'd need interpolation with tscale=oversample and waitvsync
mpv automatically does debanding as well, so horriblesubs look less like ass during playback. And also I thought they were using lanczos but most of the low tier settings are bicubic, and spline36 is much better than that. It's arguably better than lanczos, but objectively better than bicubic. So OOTB opengl-hq is better than everything except KCP's highest settings.
>on a imageboard
And pic related, mpv.
You know you can change that, right? You're just used to MPC keybinds. Mouse clicks pause the video, it's more intuitive to me that scroll wheel would forward/backwards seek in a video.
>The year 2016 of our lord
>Excusing bad UX ever
Or you could just move the mouse and use the OSD to do that.
>there's no reason for it to be that retarded
How is that retarded? Did you automatically know how to change subtitles in MPC-HC? No you fucking didn't, you had to search through the menus the first time, and then probably forget the keybindings the first few times before memorizing it.
You're complaining about having to do the exact same things with mpv because you're not used to it.
because I can press right-click and instantly find it
I've used mpv for about 2 months and just gave up because that OSD >>135589705 was just useless and lagged for no reason
it's always the same shit with /g/entoomen, I don't know why I even bother
yea don't bother, I'll just pull out the "that OSD is bloated" card
>because I can press right-click and instantly find it
Or you can just press j.
>I've used mpv for about 2 months and just gave up because that OSD >>135589705 was just useless and lagged for no reason
The OSD is useless, but why do you even need it? You don't need a GUI in a video player. And no your picture is not a GUI, and also mpv has that if you really want it. https://github.com/nezumisama/mpvmenu
>it's always the same shit with /g/entoomen, I don't know why I even bother
Then stick with MPC. But your only complaint with mpv is that it doesn't have the same controls and keybinds as MPC. So you really have no valid reason to stick with MPC besides personal preference. Good for you.
I still use CCCP.
For a long time, I bothered to keep up with and download everything individually, but after years of that I grew to not give a shit. I don't have the requisite autism anymore.
Now I check for updates once or twice a year.
I'm not going to do all that shit just to watch braindead chinese cartoons, and even if I were to just mindlessly follow some instructions to install without understanding it like >>135588799, how'd that be different than anyone installing kcp or cccp.
>>>/g/ back to your hole already.
only reason why I'm discussing this is because I'm tired of all these shitty /g/ threads and derailment
The only argument for switching to mpv so far is
>muh high quality rendering algorithms
It even failed at the classic "it's less bloated" meme, since it uses more resources
meanwhile, a large majority of people in mpv threads just copy scripts and jerk off each other acting like you understand what they do or that it even changed anything when it comes to video quality
Use whatever the fuck you want and stop with the
>lol he still uses a player that's not mpv
I've tested it myself and already been through the discussions multiple times
It's pretty much the same
in the end, noone gives a fuck anymore
>use madvr on MPC
>frame drops out the ass with even the lowest filter settings
>use mpv interpolation
>no frame drops ever even with nnedi3 and lanczossharp filter
Don't know what the problem was but I'm ditching MPC for now.
Why wouldn't you make a superior product easier to enjoy so that it sees more support?
There is no reason unless you just want to make people use vlc. I'm against spoonfeeding information, but simplifying an installation/setup process is common sense.
It's MPC-HC+madVR with a simple install and tiered settings (e.g. lowest, low, middle, high, highest).
>Why would I want to use KCP?
You somehow manage to get dropped frames on a 970 with lowest filter settings. This isn't normal, see
> having to do more than one button press to switch subs in the year 2016
Gee, I wonder what kind of cruelties must you go through to add outside subtitles.
>not having a hotkey to switch subs
Is wm4 ever going to get his shit together and implement feature parity between vo_direct3d and vo_opengl? Because otherwise people are going to continue sticking to D3D9 madVR on Windows.
I don't even know where to begin with this thread, so I'm just going to post this image and get out.
I only use Window Media Center.
>Looks better than madvr default
>Can be configured for even better looks, including NNEDI3
>Confusing as shit options
>Have to actually go online and read usermade guides on what things to change because everyone are retards
>Even so, none of the settings match mpv
I use Superior Mplayer (SMplayer) as the controlling interface, and MPV as the actual media engine. It works wonderfully in linux mint kde. Almost all the relevant settings are handled in the gui, no need for commandline crap except if you want to add custom stuff to mpv in the advanced tab.
Fucking this. For fun you should try to explain to someone that NNEDI3 is actually a deinterlacer and see what they say about that. I've been told to look it up on wikipedia before when I said it to someone on /g/.
It's probably one of the few vaguely randomsomware protections. They're actually no joke for the amount of people they're infecting, and they're blowing zero-days all the time to infect as many people as possible. They're also making big bucks because, oh hey, it's only $100, about what I'd pay for an AV.
> no need for commandline crap
> he doesn’t know about watchsh wrapper
More like ‘a day when yet another retard tries to be smart samefagging in a thread nobody cares about’.
MPEG is standard. As far as I know CR and Funi use MPEG4, which is just h264. Horriblesubs do no encoding, they just rip and slap it into a mkv container.
mkv doesn't compress video, if that's what you're saying. It's just a container.
And yes, I'm aware the quality of simulcasts is bad, that's precisely why we use post-processing to make it look better. Even just a simple debanding filter will do wonders to a horriblesubs rip.
