VLC 2.0 released

Good news to all VLC users out there. VideoLAN, the developers of the open source media player has just released VLC 2.0 a.k.a. Twoflower.

VLC 2.0

promises faster decoding on multi-core, GPU, and mobile hardware with greater flexibility in handling a wider range of formats. Another major update is HD and 10bits codecs, Twoflower also brings a new rendering pipeline that delivers new video filters for superior quality and better improved subtitles.

but still one thing very impotent is missing it can't remember sound EQ levels every time i open vlc it set automatically to default :mellow:

What is best config in VLC to play HDs in best possible quality? I have seen a difference in the play serviced by VLC, MPC with codec pack (guide at guru3d.com), Cyberlink power DVD?

^ you need hardware for to play HDs

Yup

That’s exactly why I didn’t upgrade after 0.8.6i. Sound EQ are best till this version after that its BS. and it remembers the settings. The drawback is till 0.8.6i, it doesn’t have the grip on audio formats while playing, meaning it crashes a lot. but that’s okay. I usually listen to one song at a time for days so even if it gives “an unexpected error” error. it keeps on repeating the song until I choose to end program. So its all good. :)

I won’t be bothering with ‘twoflower’.

Ive high end hardware. Hardware is not a problem at my end. I am looking for best configuration in VLC that can run HDs in best possible quality.

I dont have problems playing HDs per se.

MPC (CCCP) + WMP >>> VLC *

Right.

K-Lite codec rocks. WMP plays everything, then. If want something at advanced level, just hit and run MPC. If someone has slow computer like Pentium 4, no problem for HD videos. Make them play at Media Player Classic.

I use MPC with the right codecs for video and Winamp for music. VLC and Mplayer comes in handy when I have trouble with MPC for some reason. Guys playing music on VLC is like going to a bank for tea. If you are not ok with Winamp, try its stripped down little cousin: Foobar2000

Use madVR as the main renderer, coupled with LAV CUVID (if you have nvidia GPU, dx10 or later). Gives you the best possible image quality you will see.

I was using FFDshow till now, but after switching to madVR & LAV CUVID, there's no turning back.
