Default Re: The best playback solution for x264/h264 on BSPlayer?

Thanks for clearing things up :)

x264, either VFW or commandline is needed only if you intend to make H.264 encoded videos. It is not needed for decoding.
Anyone knows whether or not VFW is being under active development? Their site seems to be pretty quiet and link to the forum is dead right now.

I'm afraid that no matter what BSPlayer bugs are still there, Haali Media Splitted will soon be the only choice. Gabest's splitter is no longer updated and more and more features of Matroska are unsupported.
How well BSPlayer works with Haali Splitter is my foremost concern. By "bugs" in BSPlayer, how serious bugs are you talking about? Is the combo of BSPlayer and Haali still a feasible solution currently? I'd love to hear about how the BSPlayer is planning to address the bugs......

If you are planning to watch those extremely high bitrate videos (> 4 MBit/s) that are now getting popular, CoreAVC is the only choice.
Yes precisely the reason why I am trying to get started with x264. I will check CoreAVC out.

Again thanks! :D
