Functional players for UHD playback?

So, I'm making some pretty good looking HEVC streams from x265 now, and playing around with some alternative encoders as well.

For playback, what players are people liking? Accurate playback, good performance, good audio sync?

So far using the Strongeme decoder in Windows Media Player has worked the best for me, handling up to UHD 24p playback on my 12-core Sandy Bridge workstation (I imagine WPP is a big help here!). VLC will load content, but gets lousy fps at high frame sizes.

Anyone have any other players they like?

Better change that title or people will complain about rule 12 and why it is selectively enforced.

LAV filters has always worked great, and continues to work with h265.

I just install the Kawaii Codec Pack which combines LAV, Reclock, MADVR and MPC-HC (and xy-vsfilter) and be done with it.

It's a shame this thing is an (L)GPL violating libavcodec.

Yes, I also have MPC-HC Nightly and LAV filters (+ AutoFrequency, Reclock, Madvr)
Works like a charm.

Even though my computer's CPU is ancient* and can't even handle H.264 at decent SD bitrate/featureset, and that I probably won't do any serious encoding of HEVC until the Matroska specs are officially updated for it, I'll just be using my own builds of FFmpeg and mpv.
