Sharks installs Gabests splitter and guest what???? Gabests splitter supports bitstreaming
b) If you want a .mkv splitter outside of MPC-HC, the internal MPC-HC splitter (MatroskaSplitter) is the best you can find. You can download it of the same links from where you get MPC-HC, the standalone filters package.
See above, also the site you link to is in Russian or whatever and is extremely hard to read when your first language is English.
c) My guide is not 32 pages long, it`s 7-8 settings to tick + mapping your keys and it works flawlessy, with DXVA, bitstreaming, fforward/backward/subtitle/audio swithching and superb PQ. I understand you like Sharks codec pack, i`ve added references to his pack and the minimalist guide to set it up and will make a separate chapter for it after i test it out to see that everything works as expected, but first try to set up things the way i wrote them and then bash it if you find something that doesn`t work.
Last time I checked my guide wasn't 32 pages either
maybe 32 steps but I wanted to go step by step, setting by setting so that when you were completed EVERYTHING would play back with zero issues.
I was just being thorough
it is not about bashing anything, if you want to write your guide and setup process you need to explain things in every single detail possible. If this is for noobs as you say, a noob is not going to know what a filter is or what a codec is. But if you further explain it, show them what it does, and how it works and what settings do what, they start to learn this and are able to help out other noobs.
Go back into any of my base 5k post, and I **** you not 4k of them are probably answering the same questions asked over and over and over again. That is the reason I wrote my guide and went into such length and detail was so that the noob learned from it, what settings did what, and how it all works together.
Lastly you talk about PQ like MPC-HC is the best out there, well sorry to tell you but PQ is in the eye of the beholder, some like a more "natural" look, which is what I see when I use 7MC for direct playback, MPC-HC i use on my desktop, MPC-HC is a desktop app, it honestly isn't meant for the "10 foot" user experience like 7MC is.
MP-HC is great I won't refute that, but PQ? I don't know about that, looks too filtered and too sharpend, doesn't give you the film like, natural look.
I`m all for suggestions and making the guide even better, but please be constructive. Find something that doesn`t work and report it.
As I said above, the more thorough you are, and the more detail oriented you are, and the more step by step, down to the T you can be, the better this guide will be. But just giving links to things, giving vague detail, and not explaining what each piece of the puzzle does, doesn't make it noob friendly, like I said noobs don't know what filters, or codes or hell even that an .mkv isn't a codec, but a container that holds codecs in the form of video file and separate audio file and sub titles, ect..
so the more detail oriented you are the better this guide would be. That is the only reason I am giving this feed back, I've been meaning to do a write up like this for years, took me forever to do the sharks codec write up I did, so go for it, the more you can do the better, as I never had time to do it.
