Oh no! Options you don't have to use at all are a bad thing! The Horror!

No it isn't

Moreover, I encode with DivX and Xvid so I need to install those codecs anyway. Why do I have to install another filter to watch videos if already have their own codecs? It doesn't have much sense.
You don't have to watch their free fansub if you don't want to you know...

And I never had any problems playing anime. So my question is: what did the Triad do when compressing this file!???
Nothing at all, it plays just fine... using ffdshow

Xvid Beta can't decode Xvid Alpha properly.

Interesting. I'll look into that (I'd never try it if it wasn't for an advice like this ).

I asked for solutions, not your opinion. :fingers:
Oh, and more options can be a bad thing. Why do you think there's people who prefers Winamp v2 instead of v3??? More options means more space in hdd and more resources wasted = less performance.


If anyone cares, I finally tried ffdshow and the file now plays correctly, but I still think this is quite annoying: why a different filter works better than the one the creators of the codec made?? Who is at fault: programmers or encoders??

And the overlay control doesn't work correctly (and yes, I enabled the "overlay mixer" option). The quality seems okay, though. (I wonder which version tried last time... )
Well, another addition to my already big list of essential filters, just what I needed :P

lol did you even check out Lamer_de post. If you go to Triads website they are three ways you can fix this problem. I only recomended going with ffdshow alpha cuz it virtually plays just about all anime subbs. I'm glad to hear you finally fixed your problem.

Your opinion is uninformed.

Why do you think people prefer Winamp 5 to Winamp 2? Because it gives you the option to work minimally like 2 or use the advanced iTunes-like features of 3 (only no longer broken).

Yeah, all those options bloating up ffdshow so much that it takes up nearly and entire megabyte of HD space! The Horror!

There you go

You could consider the XviD programmers to be at fault, perhaps, but they never claimed to provide the best decoder anyway. Theirs is a proof of concept at best. As for Triad, oh no, they're using the latest encoder version to produce the best quality at the smallest file size! How dare they!



Quote:

Overlay should be handled by your media player.

You do realize that the ffmpeg crew make the highest quality and most efficient (least computer power required) decoders around, right? That's the entire purpose of the ffmpeg project. It's the same decoding engine that has been used in MPlayer on Linux for years.

Except ffmpeg decodes a whole bunch of formats, so it actually *lessens* the amount of filters you need.

Seriously, ffdshow + Media Player Classic (with it's built-in filters) can decode nearly everything, all under 2MB worth of downloads.

Well, I'm not too critical with anime. As long as it entertains me and has atleast a tiny bit of a plot, I'll watch it. So far I like it. Obviously it's not going to be much of a memorable series, but it's impossible for every series to be ground breaking.

I had the codec problem as well, but everyone was fine when I transfered it to an older computer to play.
I for one am going to stick with it; it's not a long one, after all. Not every series has to be great to be watchable.

The first episode really bored me, I just barely got through it. Good thing it was only a 12min episode. I'll watch the next 2 or 3 episodes before I decide to ditch it or continue, an to think this came from the makers of Steel Angel Kurumi one of my favorite ecchi all time animes. I realize its only the first episode but the characters just don't seem all too interesting. Uninteresting characters or plot/story = boring for me. I do have hope in the plot though lets just see how it turns out in the upcoming episodes.

well after watching ep 1 i would say its somewhat similar to G on Riders, only its sillier becuase its takes itself rather seriously (i mean serious characters+battling cosplayers+semi-rampent fanservice= ). On the plus side, the battle animation is quite nice, so ill stick around for that alone,

I have to say I'm very proud of the work I've done with Ai-Ls to get CosPrayers out. I can recommend it wholeheartedly ^_^

Cosmopolitan Prayers

So what do you guys think of Cosmopolitan Prayers? It seems kinda like a Sailormoon kinda thing. I can't really tell so far. I've only seen the first episode and I'm currently downloading the second one.

Well I just finished watching episode two of "Cosprayers", as Triad seems to call it, and I was shocked - SHOCKED - at how terrible it was.

Nevertheless, I'm going to finish watching the series... even though the second episode was just... TERRIBLE.

Yeah... honestly the series itself isn't very good. However, it's REALLY short, so we can all sub it, watch it, and forget it existed!

:P

Right?

Why waste your time? You could be checking out an underappreciated show like Uninhabited Planet Survive or Gokusen instead?

I run an anime review site. If I can review Sister Princess Repure and ONE, I'll review this one too.

I like translating short. It makes me feel productive while freeing up time for other things like sleep and homework.

BTW, I seriously don't think the CosPrayers audience is all that large compared to that for Gokusen and Survive. :P I think it's <3000, and I've got a feeling most of those are collectors, and that that number will drop even further as the series goes on and people see that no, it's not going to get better.
