My 3D blurays are ISO's and they are going to stay that way.
DSPlayer doesn't like ISO's, it will play the 3D MKV's fine. But my HTPC is actually my PC, my JVC has to be the primary display for 3D to work, and I don't like the resolution switching ball game that happens with 3D, I have to leave 3D mode ticked in the Nvidia control panel, which then forces some of my actual PC apps or games into anaglyph 3D mode at a later time when I open them, its just buggy. So 3D is a bit more of a manual affair right now.
I am going to be buying a DuneHDSolo pretty soon anyway, I want my HTPC to have nothing to do with 3D, its nothing but a headache through Nvidia and looks like ****. I am not even watching 3D right now because of it.
I hate MPC-HC Seegs. There is no scenario where I am going to use it. I have hated it since the year 2000. I have legitimately tried it multiple times though, its even currently installed and MadVR works with it, I just find it clunky and outdated since it requires a mouse. There is no need to use it when DSPlayer plays everything instantly and flawlessly with no hiccups, my iOS control app for Kodi is the only thing I ever have to touch, and my wife can use it etc etc... I am just not getting why MPC-HC over DSPlayer? Can you list some reasons as to why I would use that?
Both can fully support every audio format under the sun, 3D is a non issue for me, both can play MKV 3D but I prefer ISO. I still get the full Kodi OSD at all times with DSPlayer etc and resume support (CRUCIAL for me)...
In your video you were still using a mouse or keyboard. Can the Kodi iOS app control MPC-HC? I just don't get it dude. Where is the scenario where this is the better app for video? Is it because it has more menu and filter options? Irrelevant if using MadVR.
