If J.River auto configures some of these filters that is a big help. I will have to revisit their trial player again. Thanks for the heads up.
It will not just autoconfigure them, but download and install them for you as well. If a new version of the filter comes out, it'll get that also in the next J. River build... and if the new filter version proves to be buggy, it'll revert to an older version in the following J. River build if the bug becomes known.
That's been the pattern so far, but do remember that the team is only human! It's been a godsend. I love messing around with settings, but I must say, I was getting tired of it with respect to filters. Red October, J. River's auto-config thing has allowed me to enjoy my media again - without crossing my fingers each time I launch a hight bitrate 1080p video with lossless sound, for example!
Just remember to choose RedOctober HQ mode to start with, and you should see LAVCUVID work as the decoder and MadVR as the renderer.
BTW, what is the 'beefy' CPU you have?
