            The woman that started doing that shit for Wendy's wasn't fired. She stayed on for a long time running their Twitter account and eventually quit.

            Why would you think they would fire someone who brought tons of positive attention to a fricking corporate Twitter account? Are you literally moronic?

          Not for me. I hate this x265 shit so much. VLC shits itself trying to play that. I updated it and now it kind of works, but flickers every 10 second or so.
          MPC-HC shows black screen.
          MPV plays it okay, but I don't like using it.
          Maybe I will try MPC-BE.

          Also, I think I'm going fricking insane because a lot of the movies just don't look as good as I remember them from my old DVDs. There's something with colors or lighting and I don't know who's fault is this.

            Because they literally look worse on Blu-Ray. Download DVD and Blu-Ray and compare them. A lot of the times DVD will look better. Colors will be more natural, film grain will look properly, lighting, everything.

    VLC is better for PCs, due to having more customisation options such as hq denoising. MPV is better fir phines due to having more scaling options. Both are irrelevant though as streaming sites are the best option to watch movies and windows media player is better to organise audio.

    mpv
    I am a linux user so its kinda duh
    gotta say cant stand VLC interface
    it feels 2004 or whenever
    mpv is sleak, but they are hardcore linux moron who have to rely on some randos to do windows "installer" that is not an installer
    and normies cant copy directory somewhere, run bat file and set associations...

    I am using some scripts
    webm - I can cut out webm from whatever I am watching in matter of seconds easiy
    autoload - loads all the files in the directory I am playing any file from
    autosub - hotkey to download subtitles, but recently it gone to shit because opensubtitles org closed its api and one would have to pay

    before I got to mpv
    I absofricking-luttly loved bomi
    https://bomi-player.github.io/

    it was a fork of mpv and the korean guy made actual settings and playlist (extremely well done gui)
    and he was super responsive on github for few years of rapid development
    and then it died, no more new versions, no more fixes and it stopped playing shit on linux
    windows kiddies still can use it

      vlc, mpc-hc, etc. have menus and sub-menus and things in weird places because of weird decisions - it's all very arbitrary and annoying
      mpv just plays the video - if you want something else, you specify that as an argument
      I prefer it because it works better for incorporating into scripts - you can have per-script controls, UI, video settings, etc.

        no, it happens randomly as well. often updates will suddenly make it forget how to read an entire file's keyframes.

        the reason for it is down to how it was designed, primarily, to be able to run (read: emulate) DVD menus. DVD menus basically don't exist anymore.

                When you describe something that happens frequently and consistently as "not a big deal," you establish that you just ignore it when it happens.

              I didn't say anything about bloat. The features you describe are either features mpv has, features that belong to the rest of the system instead of mpv (so they work with all your files, not just your media files), or might belong to either of the two former categories if I had any clue what they are in the first place (what the frick is "trickplay" supposed to mean? seriously.)

                you don't even need a script for it, just play those files with the appropriate --start flag. Use EDL files if you have more specific needs.

                so you could manually edit the file (and need a copy too assuming you're on private tracker, which I doubt) to add tags you'd be fetching by a manual API call to have a worse experience than the one I have by doing absolutely nothing? Neat

              streaming services are the definition of bloat, as they're designed to make it just hard enough to find something to watch that you'll default to whatever is on the front page, which they control.

    Moved from MPC-HC to MPC-BE when HC didn't support HDR, I haven't even touched VLC and MPV in ages. Shitty gui's that can't be customised. Headache with subtitles, fonts, positioning... No way to or hard to customise keys, output range locked to 16-235...

      Anime rippers are morons who think every video needs to be made with the most bleeding edge codecs in the most inefficient ways possible. If I watch older anime in VLC it works just fine because VLC has long been updated to handle them, but any time I've watched newly releasing anime week to week I would have to use MPC because they're all encoded in the most moronic ways possible due to autism over imperceptible quality differences or whatever. But give VLC a few months and it's eventually updated to handle those newer ones, too.

      I never have any of these problems with non-anime TV or movies, whether old or new, because the people who rip non-anime media don't have the particular codec autism that anime rippers all seem to share.

          >MPC hasn't been updated in 6 years, how is it bleeding edge?
          Notice that I was speaking in past tense in that part of my post. Figure it out, brainlet. Also, updates to the player have nothing to do with the codecs in players like MPC where all the codecs are loaded separately. Autistic anime rippers encode shit in ways that force you to update codecs to the most bleeding edge releases, which is a problem for VLC because all its codecs are built in and not loaded separately, but over time updates to VLC's codecs allow it to catch up eventually and stop having problems with those autistic encodes until they start encoding it with more bleeding edge bullshit again that demands manually-updated codecs.

            Stop acting moronic anon, that was 14 years ago. And there's no "bleeding edge" codec in the MPC release from 2017 and it still opens new anime releases.

              When I watched new anime regularly I would have to hunt down codec updates for almost every new series. That's why I gave up on watching anime and just stick to VLC, it was all way too much of a hassle keeping up with that autistic shit.

    Once you get used to using MPV and start remembering the hotkeys it becomes so fricking good. Instead of having to navigate unintuitive convoluted menus for random settings you can just make a neat config file with every tweak in perfect order. No bloat, extremely fast, great UX and runs everything AND its devs dunk on tranime homosexuals. Best piece of software in recent memory

    I switched to mpv from vlc and my videos started playing in better quality. I was actually pissed that I was getting shafted by shitty vlc for so long. Mpv has also never had an issues playing any video file while vlc would start lagging. If anything plays better than mpv, let me know instead of sucking off your favorite application.

    I fricking hate MPV autists, these people have been autistically developing and tinkering with this player for 10 years now and they REFUSE to make the most basic fricking GUI for it, it's like they want it to stay in obscurity instead of becoming the MPC-HC replacement that it deserves to be.
    >hehe casual it doesn't need one
    Sorry homosexual, it's 2024, I wanna be able to click with my mouse to make a playlist or add files to my playlist, I value my time too much to fricking use the command prompt for something as simple as that.

    Sorry everyone running that ship is a moron. You'd have had the 2nd most popular video player if you made it more user friendly. You could have been the new MPC-HC but no...

      You're playing something right now but you want to add a file to the queue that plays next. Any video player released in the last 20 years will let you do that with 2 simple mouse clicks.

      tell me, how do you do that in mpv? do you open up your click command line and start typing out directories and names of files you wanna add?

          exactly the same way. What are you moronic or something? You think vlc invented playlists?

          there's no way to open files or add files to your current playlist with the mouse in mpv because it doesn't have a gui to do it with. So, you have to use the command line for that

              So the answer is no then? You cannot make custom playlists in mpv? You can't create a sequence of files you want playing unless you want to mess around with the command line or start writing your own fricking playlist files (absolute state)
              >I can drag and drop

    Imagine a pigeon and it has lazer beams coming out of it's eyes, it can shrink or expand without losing detail. It's pretty much the best pigeon you ever saw. That's MPV. Now remember the most dishevelled dishwashing detour of a bird that eats chips semi silently, but you can stick a pair of headphones into it and somehow hear the sound of russian compresson algorithims. That's VLC. The question you have to ask yourself is bicubic scaling better than hq denoising and or gaussian blur. And if you can't answer that question either bird aka option is nominal for your pirating purposes. But in all likelihood both cute creatures are avoided during your browser based streaming service patronage. You don't even want a bird. You want a bear. And that bear is the yandex.com search engine. It answers yes to every question like "how do I illegally break the law?".
    Just type the name of your desired movie into it followed by watch online. The quality will be bad especially around blacks, as it always is, but you get what you pay for.
