That's just the thing. You're literally admitting to depend on others' scripts and configuration files to make this usable. MPC configuration is usable right out of the box and I can make the changes myself, to suit my own preferences instead of depend on some other guy's file

The bat file is on the same page as the standard download, that's like saying getting MadVR is depending on others.
>MPC configuration is usable right out of the box
So is MPV config, the only difference being that MPC has menus you have to go through while MPV has a documentation page where you can go straight to what you want, if you know what you want that is.
>instead of depend on some other guy's file
Then you modify it, it isn't hard because everything you need is documented on the main website. Hell for MPC-HC + MadVR quality you can basically just do
>vo=opengl
>profile=opengl-hq
And have it set up for good quality video that runs good. All the options that MadVR offer can be done in MPV too yet those two lines are all you really need if you don't want to customize anything.
>>
Does MPV have stepless rotation in all 3 dimensions (meaning I could for example rotate by 3% in z axis), trapezoid transform (for those extra shitty camrips) and separated horizontal/vertical pan/zoom?

All these work with just numpad keys in mpc-hc.
>>
I am not an expert but the default settings make the picture ~%15 better than all other players.
>>

You shouldn't be watching camrips in the first place.

It can do pan/zoom, not sure if it's possible independently.

It does have a basic controller GUI at the bottom. It lacks menus and whatnot because it turns out that it's actually simpler and more convenient to edit options in a text file, rather than looking around the big clunky GUI of MPC. That was my experience at least
>>
>>157249790
Yeah, thanks, I see now. I was confused originally because I didn't know you had to make a file, and when I read the documentation I didn't register what it was talking about when it said you could make a portable folder in the .exe file area. I made one in the %appdata% shithole and got a few things to work but I guess I'll just move it so it's more convenient.

>>157249874
Mpv is far more customizable than any other player, the GUI does not even factor into it. Having no GUI is not a downside, because a) it's bloat (why have a GUI when a config is more powerful, customizable), and b) the default keybinds allow you to do everything and more than any GUI could (e.g. s to screenshot, v to hide subtitles, f to fullscreen, etc), and are all within hands reach, thus quicker than navigating a GUI with a mouse. The fact that people like you get stuck up on lack of GUI is no fault of mpv, it's your own, i.e. your problem, not mine. with GUI, you still have to look up documentation for complex settings, and so there's no difference between that and reading documentation while setting up mpv for your needs.
>>
>>157250465
>a) it's bloat
Bloat how? In the size of the program? Speed of it? In the code? We're not running Pentium 2s anymore and a user couldn't give less of a fuck about the code.
Having a GUI does not make shortcuts impossible. With a GUI you can also do many things on the fly you can't do without editing the config of MPV. I can take screencaps as either png or jpg in MPC no problem, but to do that in MPV I would have to go first figure out how to set up a keybind for it. It's not convenient, it's inconvenient.

>b) the default keybinds allow you to do everything and more than any GUI could (e.g. s to screenshot, v to hide subtitles, f to fullscreen, etc)
In MPC: ALT+I for screenshot, S for subtitles, D for finding subtitles online in multiple languages, Alt+enter for full screen, ALT+1/2/3/4 for zoom sizes.

And in MPC you don't need to set up ANYTHING. It comes good to use from the box
Only thing I needed to mess with was SVP plugins.
Face it, you only like MPV because of the "hard-to-start-means-it's-good" mindset.

All three. Its unnecessary - the functionality is already builtin, adding a GUI doesn't make mpv any more usable.
>>157250987
>but to do that in MPV I would have to go first figure out how to set up a keybind for it
Yes, and so what? You do it once, and it's forever, all you have to do is copy your config. I don't see the problem, as inconvenience suggests a reoccurring element, but mpv is not inconvenience (once you get it set up).
>>157251118
>In MPC:
Exactly my point. You do not need a GUI unless you're an illiterate grandparent who's too incompetent to familiarize themselves with keybindings. Given that if you watch anime, you use a player a lot, and thus this should be a non-issue and should even come of its own accord over time.
>And in MPC you don't need to set up ANYTHING.
Neither do you for mpv, if you just want to watch anime. Mpv comes with "sane defaults" that work on all machines.
>"hard-to-start
There is nothing hard about reading documentation and editing a text file. I think you're the one who has to face the fact you're just clinging to completely asinine reasons for disregarding mpv. Like I said, this is your problem, not mpv's.

NGU AA does not display the same problem with quadrupling the hair strands as NGU Sharp, demonstrating that NGU AA is good for poor sources and NGU Sharp is good for good sources.
>second link, third pic
Personal preference. Only real difference is how it deals with grain. Some like grain, some don't.

>>
>>157252260

This is a decent summary of my overall observations using both media players. NGU Sharp looks better than mpv can do with good sources and NGU AA looks better than anything mpv can do with poor sources. Good to see I am not the only one.

It should be mentioned, though, that while MadVR will outperform mpv in upscaling on any PC capable of using NGU medium, mpv is better for slow computers.

NGU has less detail. How is this the "only real difference"? The only people who don't like grain are those that are unable to appreciate cel animation, those that grew up on digital. There is not personal preference, there's only a right and a wrong preference.

It would also be fair to state that if an MadVR user likes grain, he can simply change NGU AA or NGU Sharp to Jinc and get basically the same picture quality as mpv with ewa_lanczossharp.
