    Do you really think mood should post MPC-BE nightly builds in this thread?
    There is or was a MPC-BE nightly about every couple of days, as reported by VideoHelp.com, Codecs.com and Softpedia.
    I don't see the benefit of reporting MPC-BE nightly builds in this Wilders thread.

    Yes. Of course if he wants to.
    I know.
    Well, I spend my online time mostly at Wilders so I can see the benefit number 1: Less clicks. :D

    Posting of nightly releases from for example: Free-Codecs would be "too much" (several builds a week...) :cautious:

    I surely can imagine that would be 'too much'.
    That is why I asked Mister X, do you really think mood should post MPC-BE nightly builds in this thread.
    I suppose Mister X will need to do a few more clicks, to visit VideoHelp.com, (Free-)Codecs.com, or Softpedia for the nightly releases. ;)

    Got to admit-others might be more acceptable, maybe even more compatible or better than some, but this is by far a personal choice in this camp. Like the way you can dock the Playlist right under the video screen. Was getting some drag and slowdown after several shows running concurrently (perhaps a memory leak) but all in all it's been a super useful addition and best of all FREE!!

    YES!

    Many thanks. It and it's cousin or brother, MPC-HC have really won over interest on this end. Excellent efforts and thought have returned satisfying results.

    Added support for PCM A-law and mu-law decoding.
    Remaked and fixed E-AC3 transmission over the bitstream via HDMI.
    Processing time stamps has been remaked, which should make playback of some formats (for example, RealAudio) more even.
    Added support for decoding DVD-Audio with two groups of channels whose frequency or bitdeph is different.
    Improved TrueHD bitstreaming.

    MPCVideoDec
    Fixed output of an inverted RGB image when working with VSFilter.
    If YUV video parameters are not specified, then set BT.601 or BT.709 based on the resolution for more correct conversion to RGB.
    Fixed playback of H.264 streams with a high ReFrames value.

    MpcAudioRenderer

    Now the default mode is WASAPI Shared, as the most user-friendly.
    Redesigned status window. Added the ability to translate.
    Added device buffer setting. Available values are "Default" (which gives the driver), 50 and 100 ms.

    EVR Custom Presenter
    Fixed using NominalRange for input video stream.

    I currently use SMPlayer. What are the advantages of using MPC-BE over SMPlayer or even MPC-HC?

    I tried SMPlayer before, and it wasn't able to play DVD with certain copy protection correctly (the Wall-E DVD is one example). (The same applies to VLC media player.)
    MPC-BE plays DVD with such 'difficult' copy protection with no problems. (The same applies to MPC-HC, and also Windows Media Player on Windows 7.)
    Regarding MPC-BE and MPC-HC, I like the fact that MPC-BE is still supported, where MPC-HC's development is stopped and MPC-HC only gets 'unofficial' updates.

    Do you know if MPC-BE can play commercial Blu-Ray movies?

    That may be (MPC-HC's current development stage off) but I found it has the better Playlist docking compared to MPC-BE. For some reason MPC-BE's docking of the Playlist won't snap under the video play box and in fact obscures the Video if you try watch with it engaged.

    MPC-HC nicely snaps and locks the playlist tightly under the Video Playing and is easily accessible for a user to simply click on any selection (as well as smoothly scroll) to switch over to a different Video.

    BOTH-However do a bang up job with Video Clarity of all sorts of video files no matter the extension, MKV, AVI, DVD, MP4 etc. :)

    I'm sorry, I don't know. I never bought any Blu-Ray movies, still only DVD and DVD players here.
