And no I haven't tried madvr, I hadn't even thought of improving video quality when it comes to my pc before, I've just always tried to improve my graphics and video game capabilities (ie getting the 7990.)

You'll be able to handle madvr with ease, and I strongly reccomend it. It made 360p (no joke) content look watchable on my 1080p screen.

As for anime playback:
Lazy option: install http://haruhichan.com/forum/showthread.php?7545-KCP-Kawaii-Codec-Pack
Works great, just choose highest and then disable the options under "trade quality for performance" and enable smooth motion.

Better option: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=516729
A few of the components have been upgraded recently (notably madvr). Install them yourself and you get the newer versions.

Either way, enable smooth motion and disable all options under "trade quality for performance" in madvr settings.

Try out the stuff I mentioned, then see how much better SVP is. I'd be very interested to hear your results.

Thanks for the quick reply and i will take your experienced advice & hope for the best.

Hulustar is very reputable. I emailed him about his fantastic event monitors - 0 to 2 defective pixels - and he said that there are no defects near center of the screen. If they are still available then these are good value, and the ones I'd reccomend on price vs risk.

does anyone know which file I should look for and where it is located as the refresh rates I used with EVGA Precision X pixel overclock have populated Windows drop down list uner advanced monitor options. I have refresh rates which didn't work and these show in games too. So unless I delete the file I cannot delete them from Windows and games.

thanks

Thanks! So should I uninstall vlc player + codecs so I can have a clean install when I start this?

Absolutely, all the guides say to uninstall any codec packs/vlc that you may have. Since getting madvr I use it for all video playback.
Make sure you get rid of ffdshow if it's installed. It has an annoying habit of creeping in unwanted.

Unfortunately I can't tell you anything about SVP but seems to require ffdshow and avisynth. Install it, then while playing back a file in MPC-HC right click and go to filters, and tell me if you see ffdshow in the list.
Try the Lite version of SVP and see if that works before installing avisynth, and if not then include ffdshow - but you want to avoid that if possible.

Edit: apparently ffdshow RAW video filter is required. If so, install ffdshow, add every single component into your external filters selection, and block them all (but set RAW to prefer). Also try giving RAW the lowest priority by putting it underneath all the other filters like LAV.

Madvr apparently contains a subtitle renderer called xy subfilter, not sure how well that works though. It may be an improvement of xy-vsfilter which is no longer being developed.

well Ive been using SVP for years, but now after display OC, running in testmode somehow mess up the hardware video playback, and all I see is 120 interpolated fps of green screen, anyhow to solve this as deselecting DXVA renderers doesnt help it still uses them on MPC-HC..?

How have you got MPC-HC set up (a specific codec pack/your own install)?

What's wrong with ffdshow is it bad? I've been using that for years with codec installs, way back when I used k-lite codec pack.

https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=146228 scroll down to the pictures. Madvr is noticably better, and with your graphics card you might as well use it. All the anime encoders really don't like ffdshow, and madvr is (afaik) almost universally accepted as best.

Maybe it isn't bad, but you don't buy 8 cores and a HD7990 for low/middle tier results wink.gif

I haven't got a clue to be honest. Some potential fixes:
Go to MPC-HC, go to preferences>external filters. Go through all of them (ffdshow, LAV, avisynth) and disable hardware decoding/acceleration. I've heard quite a few reports of these causing problems, and as an option it may not work properly under test mode.

To test it, try running testmode at 60Hz. If the problem persists testmode is the cause.

Alternatively try the method I outlined to brightbus for video playback.

Haha too true. I got like 2 more hours here at work, can't wait to work on this and see if/how much it improves my anime. I have a ton on backlog to watch smile.gif
