What do you use for your video playback?

Two separate SMPlayer builds

- with mpv
(Very good for 720p 10-bit h.264/AVC and 1080p h.265/HEVC, best sync with test files)

- with MPlayer
(Less demanding stuff, ok sync, but still off sync with the test files)

VLC ~ Backup client and random streaming stuff (32-bits, poor sync, epic artifacts with test files)

MPC-HC ~ Backup client + very specific version to play back my DVB box videos with subtitles.

Not on any Linux distro atm. But i would probably stick with mpv.

Also a PS3 for actual DVDs and Blu-Rays. Wink

Additional stuff:
- Using OpenGL video output on all except MPC-HC. (Which is a DirectX player)
- Every player is 64-bit unless mentioned otherwise
- Every player is the portable version unless mentioned otherwise
- The mentioned test files are somewhat tightly compressed 1080p h.265/HEVC
- I'm using an average laptop from 2013 with 1366x768 resolution so 1080p isn't even a thing for me
- I only use Free Open-Source Software when available/possible

Fail Transfer Protocol. Use it and lose it. (There is no or.)

MPC-HC on windows...which I only use at work because I've gone totally Linux at home.

VLC for Linux on Ubuntu.

If it wasn't this it'd be something else!

I like my MPC-HC because of its codec switching as well as SVP support.
SVP allows me to watch anime in twice the frames using interpolation technology Big Grin
