why is VLC bad?
>>
>>51497311
It's not
>>
>>51497311
because you think it is
>>
>>51497311
good question
>>
>>51497311
Its not but we are both are going to ship post about how it is because it offsets the color palette of their children cartoons by 1 bit or some shit who knows any normal human being will be able to watch any number of videos using VLC without an issue but for some reason we're both have their autism mega triggered when they watch the anime bullshit on VLC

Terrible colors
No features
Poor support for anything that isn't standard h264 or older than 2010
It just cannot handle SSA subs
The default settings on mpv/MPC-HC look much better than any settings you can put in VLC.

Overall it's really not that bad though because most of the things I mentioned is just pure autism.

KMPlayer Master Race. VLC is so ugly

You mean mpv.

>It just cannot handle SSA subs
That one is actually not true. It used to be the case that it didn't handle ASS subs properly, but that was fixed ages ago.

Really, it's a perfectly fine media player for most use cases, and anyone who goes on like it's the most terrible thing ever and anyone who uses it is an idiot needs to shut the fuck up.

Are you really not familiar with Advanced SubStation Alpha, the successor format to SSA?
>>
@51497311
Because I don't like it

>>51497445
>Terrible colors
Means your GPU driver is set to use old TV color output range of ~35-252 instead of the proper PC color range of 0-255. Fix your GPU settings and VLC will produce proper color. Or, switch VLC to an output mode that isn't affected by your wrong setting, for instance software rendering or 3D rather than overlay.
>No features
What features is it lacking? It plays near fucking everything, including youtube URLs, it can stream or save anything it can play, lets you turn the volume to 800% for things that were recorded way too quiet, etc.
>Poor support for anything that isn't standard h264 or older than 2010
O RLY? Only things I've fed it that it can't handle are some ancient RealMedia files from the mid 90s, DRM'd shit, and things it's not supposed to be able to play like SWF that aren't just video.
>It just cannot handle SSA subs
Okay, you have ONE good point.
>The default settings on mpv/MPC-HC look much better than any settings you can put in VLC.
What settings do you mean? Video output looks identical between them. If you mean the GUI, it's subjective but MPC-HC (intentionally) looks like something from 1998, and MPV is like "what GUI?", though its in-video controls are prettier and more Mac-like.

>>51498095
>MPC-HC for PC
Yes, MPC-HC is quite nice, though it relies on the Windows audio subsystem more and thus you end up with messes like codecs, filters, splitters, etc. I use MPC-HC and VLC together to handle more formats total.
>mplayer
A fine player, if you don't mind using the command line to do anything beyond "play this file".

The L stands for lan
lan stands for local area network, aka your home network.

Because you can get better quality in Linux with naked mpv or much, much better quality in Windows by installing KCP and just clicking "next, next, next".

i know hes joking but winamp was the only player to support .ras audio files at some point.

What is this autism? Literally no one is going to look for which post you're referencing

It's not shit. But there are better players out there.
MPC has SVP for interpolating 60fps, for one thing. That's an objective and noticeable benefit, not just >muh mongolian cave painting colors

I think he's impersonating a clueless normalfag, who would be a VLC user.

no

People just say so because it's one of those rare softwares that are good and also popular among dudebros and redditors.
>>
>>51501152
Are you literally incapable of reading? People have stated why in this very thread. My own reason is that BakaMPlayer fulfills the same objectives, better, and more efficiently.
The main point isn't that it's bad per se; it's that other media players are much better, and you have to be an idiot to know that and still actively choose the worse option.
If I was going to give you money, would you rather receive £5.00 or £6.00? Sure, one quid isn't a huge amount by any means, but you'd still have to be a fool to pick the lesser option.

The devs claim it's impossible to left-click anywhere on the video to play/pause.

It's pretty obvious he's just a shitposter following what I presume is /b/'s newest trend.

Biggest problem with VLC is tearing. Not sure if it's been fixed, but I was told it was unfixable due to VLC architecture.
>>
It's not, you're just falling for /g/'s shilling. It works very well out of the box and doesn't have any problems unless you specifically go looking for them.

That said, I use VLC, smplayer and mpc, switching around from time to time.

It isnt, mpv is better tho

I like it when I have nothing to do, and am on a restricted computer.
