    nice to see it's still around.
    I loved MPC, and kept using windows media player 6.x before it.

    Is there any reason to upgrade from 1.1?

    Sweet. I just had switched over from CCCP to what Coalgirls had recommended for watching anime. I guess I gotta set it back up again.

    Improved codecs and image quality. { At least I noticed a big jump when going from 1.1 to the 1.4 series. }

    I was posting somewhat tongue in cheek. I use DivX decoder for h264 (don't care about other codecs) and Haali renderer, so I don't expect an upgrade to make any difference :lol:

    The trouble with this stuff is it's so fragile and subtle. I don't change my software because it can take days to get it back to working the way it was before. Too many magic knobs to frobnicate :???:

    Might have to give this a try again at some point. Been using PotPlayer lately. Pretty nice program.

    Is MPC-HC still missing A -> B repeat capability?

    Regards,

    Anyone know if this version has 10bit encode support?

    Can someone explain the 10bit vs 8bit video files? What is the benefit other than requiring more processing power?

    I believe the 10bt is about full digital sound quality?

    H.264 10 bits is not just for producing 10 bits video though. By processing in 10 bits, it's possible to make motion estimation and other compression related computations more accurate and thus has the potential to provide better coding efficiency. 10 bits encoding is particularly good for plain surfaces and lightly textured area (such as cloud and smokes), so it's quite popular for cartoon and animation encoding.
