Interesting alternative to MPC-HC, but missing some basic features from MPC-HC, like: - Repeat option in right-click context menu - Advanced settings section - High precision timer Beside this, there's a annoying problem: when you play a video with the renderer "MPC Audio Renderer", all your videos on browser get stuck, and you can't watch them again until you close the video in MPC-BE. And I would like that, as MPC-HC does, the .png screenshots have no compression. I have taken screenshots from the same frame on MPC-HC and MPC-BE and noticed that the file size was much bigger in MPC-HC, what made me question if MPC-BE decrease the screenshot quality. (“Quality compression” value in screenshot menu is 1, which I believe to be the lowest compression level possible). Also, I suggest to make a download package including LAV Filters + MadVR + XySubFilter for those interested. Furthermore, it would be nice a feature to increase/decrease the subtitle size with keyboard shortcuts.
I like MPC-BE video player as further development of MPC-HC with many improvements and bug fixes. This is excellent tool that I use in pair with Mp4 Video 1 Click for Windows as video converter embedded into Windows File Explorer mouse context menu.
Work very well on all 4k videos I have with the KabyLake 7400T and NVIDIA 1050Ti george
This is somewhat better than mpc-hc but lacks a few of mpc-hc's features... - no auto show/hide playlist and controls in windowed mode... Playlist can't be set to auto reveal even in fullscreen - mpc-hc's subtitle downloader works flawlessly using podnapisi subtitles server but mpc-be just can't download any subtitles for even the most famous movies. If these things get fixed then it would become the ultimate player, for me at least.
Until now I have always used the MPC-HC. Unfortunately, this project is now dead. If you use the MPC-BE with external LAV filters, it works just as well. Thanks to the developers - go on!
