Among the media players which offer support for madVR we mention MPC-HC, KMPlayer, Zoom Player and Daum PotPlayer.
The main features of this GPU assisted video renderer are high-quality scaling, chroma upsampling, YCbCr to RGB conversion, full 16bit processing queue, gamut & gamma correction for display calibration, and final 16bit processing result dithered down to RGB output bitdepth.
All the actions are performed via GPU shaders and obtaining the highest quality is top priority for madVR.
This application has some limitations as well as capabilities, although in the future updates will probably add more to the features of madVR: it does not support subtitles yet and the DVD playback with navigation menu is only available in XP.
Other features not supported are hardware accelerated video decoding (DXVA) and hardware accelerated deinterlacing (DXVA).
madVR is a tool worth trying for all media enthusiasts who want to get the best out of their video files. Videos have a crispier look and the graphic card works at its full potential so your movies look a lot more like real life.
The latest updates have added new capabilities to madVR:
* modified/simplified HDR tone mapping settings page
* small HDR tone mapping saturation improvement
* OSD now also shows the measured luminance of the current frame (in addition to the average)
* fixed: render & present queues didn't always fill in Windows 10 build 1803
* fixed: using XySubFilter sometimes resulted in black screen / freeze
* fixed: using HDR "processing" resulted in dark and red-ish image
* fixed: using BT.601/709 gamma curve with HDR tone mapping produced gray-ish image
* fixed: settings dialog sometimes crashed on display mode / custom mode tab
I Tested it with some 720p rips. it brought wonderland
the new series to life :)
just overwrite files in svp folder
SVP project is awesome. once you get it to work (learning curve)
Anti-ringing filter work great while upscaling :p
In addition, I'm disappointed there is NO 64-bit version of the renderer available right now. Hopefully the developer is planning to take care of this soon, as I do not intend on further using 32-bit media players on a 64-bit version of Windows.
Otherwise, it's a great piece of software and I definitely recommend trying it out.
