>still using VLC when it's considered a joke on any serious video discussion forum.
Why are you here, preaching to the choir? Are you really so uninspired that you get any sort of entertainment, enjoyment, or vindication from preaching maymays to the same echo-chamber/hugbox that taught them to you? Good lord.
You're so fucking retarded and small-minded that you think I'm arguing for VLC. I use MPC-HC, retard. Stop pretending that you're fighting some fucking holy war to convince people to use a different video player. Fucking kill yourself.
>giving a flying fuck what some autists on a 'serious video discussion forum' say
I use vlc because it allows me to watch any video format there is as well as streaming live football using the torrentstream protocol.
I only keep VLC around for one thing: just in case.
Rarely has MPC not worked but VLC did. (mainly because the person that encoded said video was a fucking moron)
In a sense, VLCs shitty ways of managing files was A Good Thing for that one time.
On Windows, I use VLC because it just werks, and I do not give a shit about minor differences in quality when most of the time I don't even bother downloading the HD version of stuff.
>implying VLC outputting TV levels instead of PC levels because they can't into YUV->RGB conversions has anything to do with brightness settings
topkek'd, you are the kind of people who defend VLC
>all of that extra banding
I guess that's what happens when you unironically use the wrong matrices, clip the results onto 8 bit surfaces, upscale with bilinear and then output the wrong colorlevels undithered
It never fails to impress me just how *bad* a video player can get.
At least it's better than ones built into web browsers :^)
>But it can do yuv to rgb.
With the wrong matrices, wrong primaries and output levels, yes. But at that point, I'm not sure if I'd even call it “can” anymore. I'd call it “tries to”.
I hardly see the issue here
IF the main dev quits one of the other large devs takes over and probably acquires the main account on github and will still be seen as the official release
when that goes wrong and it forks people will just recognize that as THE mpv
>serious video discussion forum.
wtf am I reading. VLC plays every video I throw at it, job done. I am sure there are autists in the world who need to argue on message boards about why a video client playing video isn't enough. That's why they are autists.
show me the evidence from these 'serious forms you talk of uncle fucker. you just wanna be all cool and be like 'i know there is a better player than vlc. well who gives a fuck suck a fuck
ayy lmao, he said vlc is offical player of reddit, therefore if you use it you're a redditor!
How sneaky tricky dicky of him. Surely you don't want to be implicated in the usage of reddit!
I have 20 more of these. Shall I post em?
Boxxy now that she's older and hideous I think.
VLC is good for streaming content
Otherwise mpv/mpc-hc is better depending on your platform
VLC does things better like opening partially downloaded files, opening streams, watching DVD iso.. some weird files that mpc can't open....
there's no reason not to have VLC installed for certain situations
meanwhile, on a proper video player that also doesn't have that issue.
1. Why should users know the brightness levels are wrong in the first place?
2. Why aren't devs fixing it?
3 . Why do I have to tweak settings just to get the same quality as other players?
>get a waifu
>shitpost with smug anime girls
>use mech keyboard
>buy expensive audio system
>install some obscure linux distro
and now you want me to switch to mpchc?
I hope it will help my application to the secrit klub
mpv is actually superior on streaming, what are you talking about?
>inb4 a bunch of anime about quirky little girls doing quirkly things
This is what anime has become. Back in my time anime taught that challenges are overcome with valour, honour, hard work and friendship and also taught the importance of family values, body building and martial arts.
Because 3d is pd. This is a movie specially made to be 5 wallpapers per second though.
MPC-HC+madVR nigga, disregard freetards with their shitty opencrap player
That's not changed. There are still a ton of respectable studios.
>/g/ is crawling with anime hating, VLC using normies from rddit
So seriously.. guyz. Mpv looks like a pain in the ass. Is there any real point outside slightly better colour calibration and play? Why would that even matter unless you have a correctly calibrated monitor (which is expensive as all fuck)
So VLC for the non retards and obscure fedora players for everyone else?
Just get MPDN, it's better than MPC-BE/HC with Madvr, reclock and lav filters.
NNEDI3 + SuperRes. AWWWWYES. Or even NEDI.
It's fully scriptable and modular, it's what GNU/Linux users wish they had.
Really? MPV has MadVR's video quality? Think again buster brown, there is no way a stock config of MPV looks anywhere near as good as MadVR's advanced video processing. Assuming the source is at least decent to bgin with, MadVR makes it look so much nicer, you have to see it to believe it.
The colors are brighter, more vivid, the picture is clearer, MadVR might be arcane and closed source, but it works, quit your Russophobia and give it a try to see for yourself.
You are on 4chan. If anime bothers you so much you've come to the wrong place.
What do you mean? That doesn't look like 3D.
>This is what anime has become.
It hasn't. It's a complete myth perpetuated by people who don't watch anime.
There are 1-3 so called moe shows per season these days, and adaptations have always been a big part of TV anime.
Actually, you're the middle generation. You're the shounen generation. The one with shit like Dragonball and Naruto. Anime started off more lovey dovey and cute, then it hit its teen years and got dark and edgy, and now we're hitting full circle.
I'm not a fan of the cutesie shit, but you're wrong on this mate.
I didn't bring up the subject, so you're complaining to the wrong person. I also don't visit /a/, and it isn't a containment board. It was one of the first if not the first established on the site.
I'm not a teenager, and it is simply a fact that so-called moe shows constitute a minority of currently airing shows. It is also a fact that adaptations have always been around. Even the first anime show, Astro Boy, was an adaptation. And how would you know anything about what studios currently produce when you don't even watch current anime?
Nope never watched nurutu and i was already too outgrown for dbz, and yes anime started with cute stuff like the original astroboy and the likes. But that doesn't mean the stuff made now is any better.
ok so i use vlc. What should i change to? There are a bunch of different ones that you faggots fight over.
If you're on Windows: MPC-HC + MadVR
If you're on Linux: SMPlayer, Miro, Parole
Basically, MPC-HC with MadVR is the highest quality and looks the best, its also easy to use and takes almost no configuration, but its only available on Windows, so you should use those other ones if you're on Linux. Beware of chinese botnet players like potplayer
MPV is a command-line only program keep that in mind so without a front-end you will have to launch all videos with the terminal or by clicking on the file. There's nothing to drag and drop a video into.
Mad-VR is a set of video-processing and enhancement filters, it really does make the video look better, it basically causes it to display the true colors it was meant to have instead of an approximation of the color (sRGB) and has some subjectively nice filters that can be tweaked if you dont like the instagram look thing.
It's surprising how often people compare different frames. I don't understand the reasoning behind that.
Here's another thing I don't understand: someone posts a screenshot of their desktop to illustrate something, like video player comparison in this case, and then someone starts whining and crying about something totally irrelevant that's also in the screenshot, in this case LoL. What does it matter that he plays Lol? How is it relevant to the subject at hand? Maybe YOU should kill yourself.
I didn't make that picture but even if you compared the exact same frames, the MadVR one would look more saturated and vivid. Here, how about this for you, took it just now. Go on tell me about how the VLC one looks better. Same frame.
I think anime fans are more likely than not to be particular about quality.
I'm not sure what you mean by telling, but you can bring up stats like these.
>watching a yify file on VLC that you torrented of thepiratebay using utorrent and internet explorer
Ok yfy and VLC are dumb, but what's wrong with Internet Explorer? Its the fastest browser on Windows, you cannot deny this. It has HTML5 support now, flash, and can be secure if you configure it properly and don't let random ActiveX controls run amok.
IE now is not what IE6 used to be.
I install VLC on all workstations and suggest people use it.
The fucking thing works, and directing users to use any other media player will only result in confusion - even if that player is marginally better at displaying the color black.
I'm using MPDN and am dissapointed at the lack of the ability to normalize audio on muh movies.
I'd like to be able to watch John Wick without waking up the entire neighborhood in the action scenes. As it stands, I can't hear the quiet scenes without deafening viewers at the loud scenes.
Jesus Christ, why do movie makers do this?
Despite this probably being a joke, don't use VLC on Android. Android is stagefright-based and VLC is pure FFMPEG. Android won't support FFMPEG so VLC will never come out of beta.
Vlc plays media files
Literally the only thing you can complain about is compatibility, bugs, or the UI. Neither of those things are a problem, so why is Vlc shit?
Hint: it isint, and every media player is the fucking same with different UI and file compatibility
I have a video (720p60 demo from ABC in 1998, found on Digital Video Essentials HD bluray), with a lot of motion and smooth pans, I don't know how/where to upload it because its 330MB.
When played on some VLC setups the stuttering is easily noticeable, but with MPC is extremely smooth.
Say what you want about VLC, but at least it comes with a built in puzzle game. Checkmate MPV fags.
REALLY? It really has a fucking built-in puzzle game??! oh my god i've never seen this before, I hate it when alterantive programs I dont use put in amazing easter eggs, because I know that my favorite programs will never have them, but I dont want to use an inferior programme just to play a puzzle game... ugh damn it
It also comes in 3D, as well as a bunch of other effects. Fuck 3D Tvs, VLC does it all. For Free.
>still considering VLC is still considered a joke on serious video
>As weird as it might sound after years of laughing at "the cone", VLC is currently - as of the 2.x releases - one of the most supporting and easy-to-use players for unix-like systems. While its video rendering on some systems leaves some things to be desired (wrong color matrices used during rendering with certain renderers and such), those are by now relatively minor problems
I'm not saying it's as good as mpv, but it still good enough for most people and a great piece of well-known FOSS that actually is years ahead their proprietary counterparts
>you can tell the photo is of mememe video from the thumbnail but when you enlarge it, its gibberish.
What the fuck? how can that be that can recognize small pic but not the of full size the visual pic? paradox
>Not programming your own media player
This is why American freedom is not where it should be. This is why the rich are enslaving the poor. We need to stop supporting the dictators of media and information.
Zoom in far enough to an image and all you will see is pixels. Sit too close to a TV and the same thing will happen. Move back and it functions normally again. Welcome to the art of making shapes from smaller shapes. Enlarge them and the illusion is ruined.
So now I get to see your butthurt in 4K?

So it somehow makes my display YCbCr? No. Any conversion is always going to be a mathematical approximation. Madvr or not.
With all this alluding to issues with yify you could have just told me. But if you wish it to remain a special club secret then by all means. I stand by it being something arbitrary and retarded.
>so hipster and cooler than you because I watched anime since it originated
>anything that came after my time sucks because I don't understand it
>people who don't like what I like are fags
I don't give a single fuck about you videophile faggots jerking each other off over who's blacks are darker or who can run some obscure command line bullshit to play your stupid little girl pony shows or basement approved chinky cartoons.
I just want something I can control simply with my phone so I don't have to get up to quit or change the volume. Something I don't have to endlessly configure to make it slightly usable to get online credibility with a bunch of pedophiles. VLC plays anything I throw at it and while it's probably not the best choice I'm too fucking lazy to dick around with silly text files to make sure each pixel can accurately suck the next pixel off while going for the reach-around on ancient technology no one gives a fuck about anyway.
But no, you have to bitch and whine about someone else liking or using something you don't. I bet you're all great at parties, well at least if you were ever invited and not too socially retarded to function in groups of three or more.
Go on, squabble amongst yourselves at how uncomfortable it makes you that someone isn't using something you don't. Prove my point you dinosaurs.
Who the fuck plays their video with a command line?
Like this is fucking 2015. I gesture a motion on my touch screen and the right file is played.
What kind of left behind person uses a CLI to play a video? What person would be so snide and twisted to ignore the better way we have developed to move around and operate a computer?
And you tell me I have to append command line arguments to get my video player to do the thing I need it to, to not be an utter annoyance?
Jesus fuck man. You're like 20 years behind the ball here. Time has given us intelligent graphical user interfaces designed to do this a better way. And you sit there typing things into a command line.
Next I have you tell me I got to flip my switches to access the registers that stored the data I loaded from punch cards, so I can play back a god damn video file.
I understand what you are saying but this is really retarded. All the desktops and gui we have are so much inferior than cli that there is next to no hope it becomes one day nearly as powerful. The problem is thanks to Windows few people learned or just used cli and now thinks it's some kind of magical wizard hacker shit. Instead they have nice gui and can't do the most elementary imbricated actions.
>not setting up an air pump system that flows in through the bottom of one lung and out the bottom of the other for continuous oxygenation of the blood.
Don't get the intake wet though.
I think you have a very fundamental misunderstanding about what comparing video quality is based on. Hint: it's not based on your or anyone else's opinion on the quality of the show/movie.
You're also on the wrong site.
Most anime is made for a fairly small audience, and even we're talking about popular daytime anime I don't see any basis for your claim.
Astro Boy came out in 1963. I'm not quite that old. And I never said anything like "anything that came after my time sucks because I don't understand it" or "people who don't like what I like are fags."
I use VLC for everything except Chinese cartoons (which I use MPV for) because VLC shits the bed sometime with certain 10bit encodes and muh obscure overkill placebo upscaling algorithms and video output filters.
