So much stuff to read up on....
Nope, I'll stick with playing my stuff to VLC. XD
Kawaii Codec Pack? It piles madVR, LAV, and all that other stuff into one nice installer.
I haven't stuck my finger too far into this region yet. Would rather worry about other stuff for now.
The madvr settings is pretty affordable in most normal cases (play leopard-raws encoded 720p at ~5ms render time per frame iirc).
Those are some tricky 4k files purposely encoded to fry your system (60fps or higher, 4:4:4 color, etc), general ones should be ok.
I guess that's what $10k workstations are for... XD
Heh, I remember some test files that were sent out encoded at something like that.
Enjoy! MPC-HC has other perks like plugins for Hexchat too (if you IRC). Otherwise it's just a darn good player that lets you be lazy.
@deadlylover You've been to Tokyo right? Anything you recommend I do while I'm there?
Mate if you'll be there for a year, I guess you'll be able to explore everything anyway. XD
I can't really recommend much other than to visit all the main towns.
Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Asakusa, Odaiba, things like that, my memory is failing me now. You're gonna have to ask the others for any specific headphone stores, but the Yodobashi camera in Shinjuku and Akihabara has quite a selection!
Yep, pretty much =_=
Sometimes people just happened to have too much computing power to spare :/
