The incredible flexibility and range of settings and the profiling system allow me to fine-tune any content to my liking. So far, i have not tested anything better than madVR.

Betas are updated regularly, though. One can always hope for a paid for version, sooner or later.

nothing of this matters it only confirms even more that it is dead.

mpv is pretty much over taking it planning in a paid madVR version that can't even do what mpv can is just...

mpv is one of the least user friendly software I've met in my whole life.

I don't dispute the quality it can offer, I strongly dispute the amount of time needed to get there. Especially when comparing to madVR and a DirectShow based player.

That's what I said the first time.
But the second time, I accepted to spent several hours on the manual: https://mpv.io/manual/master/
If you have lot of free time, it's doable in 1 day, but with limited time, you have to accept you'll need several days (weeks in my case).
But now I use it for several years (thanks stax76 for motivating me)

Ok, I don't know anything about HDR (i'm still a 1080p SDR user) and maybe it's less good than madVR, but in terms of ressources, mpv is better (you can use HwInfo64 to check CPU/GPU datas for both)

But I'm sure a power user which created a nice guide could learn mpv easily !

I got it up and running in an hour, it's actually easier than I also thought. If you're using Windows I'd recommend Shinchiro's 64bit-v3 build (the 64bit-v3 build has these instructions enabled by default: avx avx2 bmi bmi2 fma lzcnt movbe sse3 sse4 sse4.1 sse4.2 ssse3 xsave sahf mwait crc32 cx16 popcnt f16c). If v3 doesn't work with your CPU just use the regular 64bit version.

1. Download and extract into C:\Program Files\mpv
2. Navigate to the C:\Program Files\mpv\installer directory, right-click the mpv-install.bat and Run as administrator.
3. Go to the C:\Program Files\mpv folder and run the updater.bat as administrator (follow the prompts quickly - I recommend selecting the 64bit-v3 version and the daily builds). This simply updates to any new Shinchiro mpv build and installs/updates ffmpeg.
4. Navigate to C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\mpv and put your mpv.conf text file here. An example mpv.conf added below.

FYI, there is an mpv player support thread now on AVS to help with the mpv.conf file and settings. The mpv manual also shows all the various options you can include.

https://www.avsforum.com/threads/uno...hread.3274072/

Edit: Here's my current mpv.conf (Windows 10, nVidia RTX 2070S, Display is a JVC X790 projector). You can download shaders from the avs support thread above.

I don't think so. Only if you use gpu-api=vulkan

Ok. What is best solution for refresh rate change? I only can find scripts which require nirsoft.

That is the best way currently. It works perfectly.

Yep, that is the best way. Change-refresh.lua and nircmd. Just add any missing refresh rates to changerefresh.conf. I've been using it for years now, works perfectly.

It works yes, but not perfect. The pause must be before playback starts, not start playback for a split of a second, change refresh rate, pause for the set seconds and continue.

But thank you very much. Finally I got it working, but I stick with MPC-BE with MPC-VR, madVR and LAV Filters and Kodi.

I use tv-box on s905 with kodi (corelec 9.2.0)
I need quality hdr to sdr conversion (madvr like)
Can I install this player? or anyone else?

No, not that I'm aware of. You'll need a PC.

Support for custom shaders was recently added. Requires MC 31.0.50 or higher.

On Windows you can use mpv.net which has a context menu. I will soon build a complete new settings dialog and add many rendering settings. For anything beyond that, feel free to make a feature request.

Hi, couple of quick questions please :

- Does the JRiver Renderer (JRVR) have RTX Super Resolution support now? Is it planned?
- Conversely, since MPC Video Renderer does have RTX Super Resolution support, are you able to use MPC Video Renderer with JRiver Media Player?

Thanks, I am hunting for a new video player since ZoomPlayer is only 32bit
