MPC-HC vs. VLC, Which is better video player?

Camille Wesley No Comments

A video player on Windows determines what video format you can play on Windows and what files you can watch. On Windows, there are two popular media players: Media Player Classic – Home Cinema (MPC-HC) and VLC Video Player. But there must be a better one in any two things. So, Which is the better free video player: MPC-HC vs. VLC? We believe you can get your own answer from the head-to-head comparison below.

MPC-HC vs. VLC, Which is better video player?

Best video support: MPC-HC

I’m not sure why it surprised me, but MPC-HC played HEVC (x.265) files flawlessly, including 4K with decently high bit rates. I’d expected this from VLC, whose authors are almost fetish-like in supporting everything, but VLC didn’t play the 4K files as smoothly. VLC skipped frames like they were going out of style. This won’t affect many users now, but it may soon.

What’s more, MPC-HC played nearly everything else I threw at it. There was one exception: an old MPEG-1 file that VLC won’t handle either. Both also had a hard time seeking in certain WMV files, though VLC was quicker on long jumps. On the other hand, MPC-HC did play another older MPEG-1 that choked VLC. Both programs played VCDs and DVDs (even commercial ones), nicely handling the menus and other elements, and both played non-protected Blu-ray movies, too.

There was another factor: The stark difference between the way the two programs react to a file they don’t understand. When VLC runs into a problem, it often goes into a loop that requires several attempts to break out of. Sometimes killing the VLC process tree using task manager is the only solution. MPC-HC simply doesn’t play a file it doesn’t understand. It might be nice if it displayed a frown clown instead of just sitting there, but that’s being picayune.

MPC-HC’s new-found stability with video seems due to replacing its old internal DirectShow filters with Nevcairiel’s excellent LAV filters. The release notes for version 1.7 actually stress the increased stability. LAV is based on the popular GNU-licensed FFmpeg.

Best streaming support: VLC

This one was a laugher for VLC. It’s called VideoLAN for a reason. Just paste a URL into the “Open Media Stream” dialog and if access is allowed, you’re streaming YouTube and what have you. MPC-HC doesn’t even try to do this.

Best audio support: MPC-HC

A squeaker for MPC-HC. Both programs played WAV files up to 96kHz/32-bits, and all the standard compressed formats, including MP3, M4A, FLAC, APE, and even Opus. Both failed with .VQF files (a very old codec), but so does everything else. The small difference was that VLC also misfired on Windows Lossless, starting but continuously glitching. I’m guessing this will be fixed soon. but it’s not unusual for a VLC update to break something else. MPC-HC played both Apple Lossless and Windows Lossless just fine, and the program was more responsive when switching tracks.

Both programs also played audio CDs, with VLCbeing smoother at switching tracks in this instance.

Best with subtitles: VLC (barely)

In my subtitle tests, MPC-HC was generally fine, but for some reason refused to display text after I installed the external version of the LAV filters for use with Windows Media Player. Re-installing MPC-HC cured the issue, which may simply have undone my tinkering with which codecs to use, but it was an issue that VLC seemed immune to.

VLC’s ability to add subtitles by dragging a .sub, .srt, etc. file on top of a playing movie in VLC (MPC-HC tries to open it as a playable file) and you have the winner by a small margin. Both automatically load subtitles the vast majority of the time.

Best photo format support: MPC-HC

Neither program is really made for images, nor will they do a slideshow worth a darn; but while VLC spun its wheels on nearly everything other than PNG and JPEG files, MPC-HC displayed BMP, compressed and uncompressed TIFF, PNG, static and animated GIFs, and TGA (Targa) files. On the other hand, it failed on one JPEG, then displayed it fine later. So that’s eight formats to two, but a random fail on by far the most common type. I’m calling it for MPC-HC, but that JPEG glitch was puzzling.

Best user interface: MPC-HC

Neither VLC or MPC-HC are much to look at. MPC-HC was derived from the older Media Player Classic, whose interface is based on the Windows 95/XP Media Player. VLC has clunky icons and its garish orange work cone (aren’t you supposed to avoid these?).

But the real difference is that MPC-HC’s menus and features are far better organized and laid out. MPC-HC’s context menus don’t change as VLC’s do when you’re in full-screen mode, and it’s easier to remember where everything is. I’ve used VLC for years and still have to hunt around for options on occasion.

I also appreciate that when I resize MPC-HC, it stays that way, even when I’m looping a video. VLC always returns to its previous window size when it starts playback again. This wasn’t as close as I made it sound. VLC could use a lot of UI work.

Best support for filters, shaders, and FX: VLC

This was a tough call. Both players play normal speed and allow you to skip anywhere you want in the material. But VLC has more granular speed control; smoother slow speed playback; it stretches/compresses audio to retain the original pitch, instead of simply speeding it up or down as MPC-HC does; it lets you loop portions of the material, which MPC-HC does not allow; and it offers a few more tweaks that you can apply to video, such as interactive magnification, although they’re hidden away in multiple dialog boxes.

MPC-HC lets you use shaders (aka filters or FX), such as grayscale, edge sharpen, and emboss. You can also load these from files, but I never located any that don’t already ship with MPC-HC. There may be some, but the MPC-HC crew never responded to my queryand I got tired of hunting around. I’m calling shaders/FX a tie, but more facile and feature-complete playback wins the day for VLC.

Odds and ends: Tie

VLC has a very nice audio boost feature built right into the volume control, where MPC-HC has its boost buried in a dialog. VLC is cross-platform, supporting just about everything, including Windows Phone and Windows RT. Wow. MPC-HC is Windows-only. A big shout out to the VLC guys for that.

MPC-HC feels tightly programmed, which is something I appreciate from my days coding. I run a Core i7-3770 with SSDs, which tends to make everything seem the same speed; but MPC-HC still opens faster, reacts more quickly to drag and drop, and even resizes more smoothly. Then there’s it’s ability to play back 4K. It’s not a massive difference, but it’s there.

And I hate to harp, but it MPC-HC doesn’t waste your time trying to close it when it can’t read a file. VLC should really up its file-parsing game.

Why not use Windows Media Player?

Installing external DirectShow filters like LAV can enable Windows Media Player to play just about any file type, and its audio enhancement is the best in the business. It’s also a pretty fair librarian/organizer, which neither VLC or MPC-HC is good for. The ridiculous hoops that you must jump through with WMP to skip about material, however, have always sent me looking for something else. Especially for sporting-event video. But that’s another article.

Conclusion

I’m going to call this a victory for MPC-HC. Major kudos to the MPC-HC developer team for finally making it stable (with a nod to LAV package by Nevcairiel) while maintaining its keep-it-simple-stupid philosophy.

I would recommend keeping VLC around and up to date for those times that you want to stream outside of a browser, or loop segments, or play material at different speeds.

How to Play All AVI files on Panasonic DVD Player Smoothly?

Camille Wesley No Comments

Have you met the trouble that you can’t play some AVI files on Panasonic DVD Player via USB? If you searched on Google, you would find that it was a common issue. So you might ask whether Panasonic DVD Player supports AVI files or not. The anwer will be yes, partly. Why did I say like this? You can read two questions on AVI to Panasonic DVD Player firstly:

Question 1: It’s a Panasonic DVD player. Couple of months old. After it didn’t play the .avi, I looked through the specs. It plays every single file format I have ever heard of (plus some fucking weirdo ones) but NOT .avi. Why?

Question 2: I have a Panasonic S48 DVD player which will play avi files from a flash drive.
But only some avi’s and not mp4 or mkv.

I searched Panasonic DVD Player manual and caught a snapshot below from this site: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/dvdplayer/om/dvd-s68_en_om.PDF

Panasonic DVD Player Playable Files

This picture is for Panasonic S68 DVD Player. It says that if you want to play AVI on Panasonic S68 DVD Player, the file extension has to be ‘.DIVX,’ ‘.divx,’ ‘.AVI,’ or ‘.avi’, otherwise, you can’t play AVI files on Panasonic DVD Player. But according to the question 1, the questioner represented that through the specs of his new Panasonic DVD Player, it plays every single file format he has ever heard of (plus some fucking weirdo ones) but NOT .avi. And we have to stress that this question is asked in Reddit in September. Guessing his Panasonic DVD Player is the newest version. So I searched the user manuals of Panasonic DMP-UB900, which is 2016 version and supports 4K Blu-ray. In its Playable Medias, it supports AVCHD, MKV, AVCHD, AVCHD 3D, MP4, MPEG2, NO AVI.

I also read some other user manuals of Panasonic DVD Player 98RV1, Panasonic DVD Player CT-G2946L, Panasonic DVD Player CT-G2946L, Panasonic DMP-BDT360, etc and get the conclusion below:

Some Panasonic DVD Players only support DivX AVI, then some support XviD AVI while the rest don’t support any AVI files. If you want to know if your Panasonic DVD Player supports AVI or not, check the User Manual!

Make All AVI Files Playable on your Panasonic DVD Player

Anyway, if you have some AVI files that can’t play on your Panasonic DVD Player, how can you do? You can use some Video Converters to transcode your DivX AVI to XviD AVI, XviD AVI to DivX AVI or convert all AVI files to other Panasonic DVD Player supported formats.

Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate will be the best choice. This video converter is an all-in-one Video to Video Converter + Blu-ray Ripper + DVD Ripper + Audio Converter.

With built-in video editor, you can add subtitle to video, remove/replace audio in video, trim/crop/merge/split video, add watermarks, adjust video aspect ratio, etc. As for the functions of helping you view AVI files on Panasonic DVD Player, it can:

– Convert DivX AVI to XviD AVI for Panasonic DVD Player

– Convert XviD AVI to DivX AVI for Panasonic DVD Player

– Convert DivX, XviD, AVI to MP4, MKV for Panasonic DVD Player

FAQs about Your Portable DVD Player:

1. What forms do portable DVD players come in?

Two major types of DVD players are commonly available: fold-up models and car DVD players. The difference between these two types is how your portable DVD player is connected to your vehicle. Regular portable DVD players are stand-alone devices with the player and folding screen in the same unit. Portable DVD players for cars may have one or more screens installed in car seats or the ceiling, with a separate player in the dash or beneath the seats. A normal portable DVD player has the advantage of going with you anywhere, while the portable car DVD player is easily integrated with your vehicle’s sound system. Another, less-common, portable DVD player type features a viewing screen built into a boombox or bookshelf stereo design.

2. Can I play Blu-ray discs on a portable player?

Some do. Portable Blu-ray players will play both Blu-ray and DVD. If the name of a product doesn’t clarify whether it plays Blu-ray, you can check the product description for the initials “BD” which stand for “Blu-ray Disc.”

3. How can I get better sound from my DVD player?

A separate set of speakers can really improve the sound you get from your player, usually plugging in through the headphone jack. Your portable DVD player may also come with adapter cables for your car stereo, allowing you to use car speakers for sound.

4. What if I want to use headphones?

Nearly every portable DVD player has at least one headphone jack; many have two. If you want to use two sets of headphones but don’t have two jacks, you can always use an adapter cable with a splitter.

About VC1

VC-1, which was initially developed as a proprietary video format by Microsoft. It is today a supported standard found in Blu-ray Discs, Windows Media, Microsoft’s Silverlight framework, Slingbox, and the now-discontinued HD DVD.

About Open Hour Chameleon

A positive first step for this premium Android-based TV streamer, with a polished hardware specification inside and out, and vast app support courtesy of the Google Play Store. It’s not yet the finished article though, with DTS & Dolby audio support in particular an issue. But the Chameleon has an abundance of potential and with the right focus, could be a fantastic media and gaming partner for your big screen.

Symptoms in Playing VC1 on Open Hour Chameleon

I’m just trying to get my head around the 23 976 issue: So far I have found that all of my 23 976 files play fine when the codec is H 264. However when playing remuxed VC1 files at 23 976 is when I experience slow play and tons of dropped frames. Is this the issue that others are experiencing with 23 976 or is my situation unique? Why VC1 files will not play on Open Hour Chameleon smoothly?

Tip. About 3D Blu-ray movies

Let’s know more about 3D movies. A 3D or 3-D (three-dimensional) film is a motion picture that enhances the illusion of depth perception. Derived from stereoscopic photography, a regular motion picture camera system is used to record the images as seen from two perspectives, and special projection hardware and/or eyewear are used to provide the illusion of depth when viewing the film.

What is Blu-ray 3D?

In December 2009, the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) finalized the specification for 3D content on Blu-ray Disc. BD 3D delivers full HD 1080p resolution to each eye, regardless of whether that display uses LCD, plasma, or LED technology. With 3D on Blu-ray, each eye gets its own 1,920×1,080-pixel image. These 2 images are combined into one extra-tall frame.

To enjoy Blu-ray 3D via your computer, you need:

1. 3D HDTV (with 3D glasses);

2. 3D media player software (like PowerDVD, Total Media Theatre);

a. PowerDVD

PowerDVD is the No. 1 Media Player for playback Blu-ray, 3D Video & HD Movie on Windows platform. Its Unique TrueTheater enhancements let you not only enjoy a vivid 3D movie, but also converts 2D content into 3D, offering a whole new viewing experience for content such as Blu-ray HD movies, slideshows, YouTube videos and more. The depth of the 3D experience can be optimized with easy slider controls to get the best results from your 3D display.

b. Total Media Theatre

Total Media Theatre is another Blu-ray playback software for enjoy Blu-ray as well as 3D movies on your computer. It allows you to play 3D movies and video files including Blu-ray 3D movies. You can create 3D videos in real-time from 2D videos and DVDs via its patent Sim3D technology. So does the 2D image playback. Other feature like adjusting the depth perception to customize your 3D experience is also available. It is the most user-friendly Blu-ray player software as reviewed from a lot of users.

3. Blu-ray drive

4. 3D Blu-ray movies.

What kind of video file is used for 3D Blu-ray?

The Blu-ray Disc Association has chosen the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) codec to store 3D, so that even though it provides a full 1080p frame for each eye, it will only require about 50% more storage space compared to the 2D version, and all 3D discs will be fully backward compatible, in 2D, on existing players.

Do I have to wear glasses? What kind?

The viewer still has to wear polarized glasses, but in Blu-ray 3D, the glasses have LCD active shutters that are synchronized with signals from the TV. The shutters rapidly block the right- and left-eye views alternately so each eye receives the correct image. This technology provides higher resolution than simpler X-Pol glasses because in Active Shutter technology, each eye sees all the lines in the video, whereas in X-Pol each eye sees only half the lines.

Do I need a new screen to watch Blu-ray 3D?

Yes. A BD 3D compatible screen is required to view 3D content. The new screens have higher refresh rates and IR transmitters that work with the Active Shutter glasses. 3D screens can also display 2D content.

Do I need a special Blu-ray Player?

Yes. 3D – compatible Blu-ray Disc players will be marked with the BD 3D logo. These are known as Profile 5 players.

Do I need to shoot stereoscopic video to create Blu-ray 3D?

You can create original content in stereoscopic 3D, or you can add the 3D effect to 2D video by creating an offset image in post production.

How do I author a 3D Blu-ray Disc?

The basic authoring concepts for Blu-ray Disc carry over from 2D to 3D. Sony Creative Software’s DoStudio and Blu-print have support for 3D authoring.

Are Blu-ray Disc menus in 3D?

The BDA defines a specification for 3D menus in HDMV mode and BD-J.

How to Play a WMV File on a Standard DVD Player?

Camille Wesley No Comments

Many people have lots of WMV files that want to play on a standard DVD player like the below questioner:
“I have a .wmv movie I would like to burn to a DVD to play on a standard DVD player connected to my TV (not just on my computer). I have several pieces of software that can convert the .wmv file to another format, but don’t know which format I should convert it to. Any suggestions?”



In fact, there are two ways to play WMV on a DVD Player: method 1: burn WMV to a DVD; method 2: convert WMV to DVD player supported format. Here, the article will introduce you the two ways in detail.

Method 1: Burn WMV to DVD for Playing on DVD Player

Pavtube DVD Creator is an easy-to-use DVD-burning software. It can burn  AVI, WMV, MP4, MOV, MTS, Tivo, etc to DVD video. The beneficial DVD menu customizing features allow you to change the DVD menu template/style, menu text, display aspect ratio and background, you can also set chapter maker and playback mode.

You can customize the background video/image, background music, text, title thumbnail and more for your DVD menu.

Step 3:  Click the “Burn” button to start burning WMV to DVD. Once the process ends, you can play your DVD burned from WMV on DVD player.

In fact, some too old standalone DVD players can’t play AVI at all. Only  new DVD players can play AVI files which is encoded with DivX.

How to Play Blu-ray on WD TV Live Plus Smoothly?

Camille Wesley No Comments

Blu-ray not only can be played via Blu-ray Player. It also could be ripped and streamed on other multimedia players, which natively don’t support Blu-ray, like Windows Media PlayerQuicktimePopcorn Hour A-400, WD TV Live Plus, etc. This operation is easy with the help of Blu-ray ripping products on the market. And no matter ripping Blu-ray to what device, the process is nearly the same. Here, we take WD TV Live Plus as an instance.

Firstly, backing up Blu-ray to WD TV Live Plus, you should know clearly the video and audio support of WD TV Live Plus. This can be found in the User Manual and Official site. Below is what I searched:

Audio: MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital, DTS.

Secondly, make sure your computer has a internal or external Blu-ray drive to carry out Blu-ray conversion process.

Thirdly, find a Blu-ray ripping tool, like Handbrake or ByteCopy. Considering that Handbrake can’t solve copy protected Blu-ray disc and it has output format limitation, I suggest you choose Pavtube ByteCopy (Mac version).

This software can rip and backup Blu-ray to nearly all kinds of video and audio format: H.265,  M3U8, FLV, MOV, M4V, WMV, WMA, etc including lossless MKV with all multiple audio and subtitle tracks, and chapter markers keeping.
