    Yea, mpc was much > vlc around the h264 10 bit time, since then it's come a long way, I use only vlc now.

    I use MPV (because VLC is a POS) and Kodi personally. No need for external codecs.

    This was a great find for the built-in Movies & TV video player.

    It's always worked fine for me (most likely because I didn't install 50 different codecs) :)

    VLC player works flawlessly with DVDs and video files just fine. Your computer's probably infected with malware. What the deuce are you trying to load, 8K Red Camera video files?

    I also use VLC. Initially I had to make a change or two in the settings to get 4k content to play smoothly, but now no issues. This specifically allows Windows apps to display/use high-res content. IIRC, Barnacules over on YouTube mentions in a recent video that the Windows HEVC encoder has better native performance than what you'd most likely see in VLC, so this plugin does matter. Shame on MS for plucking it out of the OS (it used to come with Win10) and charging $1 for it! And good thing there's a link to a free OEM version. I'd suggest people who want to, capture the URL during install for the .APPX file and download it for safekeeping, too.

    Codec packs = Garbage, and why do people still use VLC, WMP, or MPC-HC over the superior PotPlayer?
