I used to never have issues with VLC player.  Just recently, I had a need to use it.  But, quickly realized all media playback stutters; and, can barely play any videos correctly.  With MPC-HC, it takes full advantage of my hardware; and, can even scale in real time 2160P or 4K H.264 videos without any stuttering.


I've tried completely cleanly uninstalling VLC and also tried many different versions.  What settings should I use for it to playback like MPC-HC?  I'm using an extremely standard PC (Intel quadcore, Nvidia 640GT, Creative Labs XiFi) using all WHQL certified drivers.


One thing I noticed right away VLC looks like it uses old fashioned video overlay instead of EVR.

Can your HTPC Media Center / DVR Do this??
