XySubFilter is based on VSFilter, while AssFilterMod uses libass, which is an entirely different rendering library.

Simple curiosity, not criticism of any kind, as devs are clearly free to do whatever the hell they want with their own time.
1 XySubFilter is open source
2 AssFilterMod is a fork of AssFilter "ISubRenderProvider meets libass. Working prototype.

with some sub from http://www.zimuzu.tv/fsubtitle http://subhd.com/sub0
for ass
1. AssFilterMod crashes mpc-hc with madvr or evr-cp many times.
2. It takes a lot of times before play real start.
3. Border And Shadow behaves very differently with AssFilterMod other then mpc internal and xysubfilter.
for srt
both AssFilterMod and sub file is loaded, but nothing is showed. Not quite much, but happened.
Sorry for my English, and no snapshot.

Also don't know how to switch sub tracks.

It's quite ironic that you spent the time to reply, suggesting me to "check behind" when you clearly did *not* answer my main question.

"May I ask why the decision of starting almost from scratch instead of working on improving XySubFilter?"

The fact that XySubFilter is open source only strenghtens my curiosity. Reading these nine pages it looks a lot like reinventing the wheel. *But* I'm not a developer, so I simply asked what was the reason for the decision taken by Blitzker. I *think* he might be the only one capable of providing an answer.

And I stress that it's his time, his project and he can do whatever the hell most pleases him. I'm just curious. Maybe I'll learn something in the process.

Cheers.

XySubFilter code is a giant complex mess which makes it unlikely to attract new developers.

AssFilterMod is open source as well. All the complex stuff is in an external library (libass) that he doesn't need to worry about. The AssFilterMod filter is just a wrapper for libass. So it is a relatively small amount of code to maintain.

Great job with this filter, got lots of ass fx witch just don't wokrs with vsfilter or xysubfilter.
Is there any way to autoswitch from your ass filter to vsfilter/xysubfilter for unsupported format (.sub,.pgs...)

Thanks a lot
