madVR 0.87.10

Updated: 23 Apr 2014

madVR is a high quality video renderer (GPU assisted) that can be used with Media Player Classic Home Cinema or any other media player which supports madVR; just select madVR as the preferred renderer in the media player's settings.
Features of madVR 0.87:

- high quality chroma upsampling
- high quality scaling (bicubic, mitchell, lanczos, spline etc)
- high quality YCbCr -> RGB conversion
- gamut & gamma correction for display calibration
- full 16bit processing queue
- final 16bit processing result is dithered down to RGB output bitdepth
- bypasses graphics card's video (damage) algorithms
- all work is done via GPU shaders
- no shortcuts, highest quality has priority over anything else

Known problems / limitations:

- no subtitle support yet
- DVD playback with navigation/menu currently only works in XP, but not in newer OSs
- hardware accelerated video decoding (DXVA) is currently not supported
- hardware accelerated deinterlacing (DXVA) is currently not supported

• Firewall complaints:

madVR tries to automatically find other PCs in your local network which are also running madVR. If any such PCs are found, you can remotely switch audio and subtitle tracks, jump to specific chapters, etc etc. For this network functionality to work, madVR tries to access the local network, obviously. So if your firewall complains, you know why. If you don't ever plan to use madVR's network functionality, you can safely tell your firewall to block any and all madVR network accesses. Please rest assured, though, that madVR does not upload your private data to a server or anything of that sort. So allowing madVR to access the LAN should not result in any privacy or security problems.

The MadVR renderer is great. Video looks crisper and clearer, and it makes terrific use of the graphics card you're ...
