    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?

    Why people still use Windows after all that bloatware it has in Windows 10, the OS is almost unusable... Some menus open up with that Metro UI, and some open up as normal windows... Some apps install themselves automatically without permission (e.g. Candy Crush)... The OS takes so much space especially after a few updates... And who knows how much data this OS gathers after all that cortana thing and the need to sign in using microsoft account in order to use many features...

    Linux has many variants that are so easy to use (Such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint), I do not see any reason to use Windows other than gaming (Well at least until the DXVK/Proton project for Linux improves, then we no longer need Windows)..

    Microsoft wouldn't take this bloatware path if they weren't losing money...

    I wonder how the next Windows will be... A bloatware with a small OS in it... :rofl2:

    I don't know if I even am logged in. I hardly use the thing, and it always asks me to log in on the rare occasion I do. Never had an issue like this before though.
