Eventually, after 2 supposedly tries to fix the colour, they came close to MPC-HC. Now it's fine and with appropriate settings, it uses slightly less recources than MPC-HC but the image quality of the latter is slightly better.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I understand that the quality depends on the decoder and filter used. With that in mind - configure mphc and potplayer to use the same stuff (lav, ffdshow, etc).

The benefit of Potplayer for me is being able to choose my own filters, I use LAV and AC3 and xiph for their appropriate codecs.

I would like to know if you've tested quality based upon different filters or with just the straight out of the box configuration. If not then perhaps doing so would change your mind.

I'm talking about the default filters. For XVIDs, pot player is using the MS AVI Splitter and something like that is the reason for ( slightly ) less resources but ( slightly ) less quality, likewise.

On both players you can chose your own filters, but currently I stopped using MadVR/LAV etc. Only occasional problems while the difference in quality sometimes was questionable. In short, it doesn't worth it imo cause I'm using just a 24" PC monitor.
