Question What PC media player do you use to watch fansubs?

What PC media player do you use to watch fansubs?

I currently use Media Player Classic with the latest VistaCodecPack

The problem arises when a fansuber does n mkv release of a DVD anime with mkv having flags for 3:2 pulldown. This causes stuttering in Media Player Classic but not in Windows Media Player. I hate using Windows Media Player because the interface is unintuitive.

I also find that ffdshow has issues, which makes me switch to trying to have it play nice with CoreAVC, but it's still not perfect.

VideoLAN Client has an awful interface so I don't use it.

I guess that Mplayer Package plays nearly all my video files with resume support, but I don't like how it upsizes video compared to Media Player Classic.

Core Media Player has never been to my liking.

So what player do you guys use to view your fansubs? Any magic bullets out there?

MPlayer here, but that's just because I'm on Linux. Would be CCCP w/ MPC otherwise.

(Should have made it as a poll... Speaking of which; wasn't there a thread like this already?)

Zoom Player and Media Player Classic. I find ZP to be more reliable but MPC usually works and I default to it when I install CCCP.

Pure Codec Pack with the option for using KMPlayer, BS player, MPC and WMP.

I highly doubt this is the case, as any sane encoder would just make and leave the video progressive. Your problem must be in something else, and I believe the cause is in the bloat called Vista Codec Pack. Remove it and everything else (namely ffdshow, CoreAVC etc) reboot and install CCCP (and additionally CoreAVC). See the guide linked in my signature.

I use GOM player / Zoom Player / VLC / Media Player Classic. I just have a bunch because sometimes one of them will play a file that the other can't. Even with CCCP sometimes another player plays it better.

MPC for 5 years now. The only problems I've even had are when I'm not using Haai Media Splitter for StrikeS releases

Back in the bad old days(before .ass) i used VLC. Then when .ass became common and VLC's problems with it apparent, some kind soul pointed me in the direction of MPC. Haven't looked back since.

For most things MPC. I occasionally have to bust out VLC or Mplayer to get things to play correctly.

I use mplayer. I'm on ubuntu thats why. On windows I use MPC with cccp, qt lite and real alternative lite. Never had to use vlc ever. I'm always surprised people end up having 4 media players on their computers it's so unnecessary. The only thing I found mpc wasn't playing for me was flash but playing flash isn't a problem with mplayer.

MPC can play flash as long as it is installed for Internet Explorer.

Edit:
CCCP can play .flv without flash being installed even.

For Windows I use KMPlayer, for Linux I use mplayer.

I'll let you guess whose project I liked.

MPC, it plays almost everything with cccp. Except flv and flac didn't work with it. Since I use ffdshow too, I made the settings so it'll auto upscale (it's not a proper upscale, but the videos looks slightly nicer) SD videos. I use VLC if I want to take screenshots, if MPC doesn't like the video I want to play and decided to crash. For music I use windows media player, because it works with my play/pause button on my keyboard.

I use MPC on my main PC as well as SD files on my laptop, for HD files on my laptop I use SMPlayer which can actually run them without lagging unlike MPC since my laptop is slow.

Any link to such a non-working flv? FLAC plays if it is inside Matroska.
