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

It is not considered wise to use x264 via the Video For Windows interface. Most people use the command line version, optionally with a graphical frontend. There are tons of frontends to choose from, most however require the NET Framework.

Some Haali+Bs bugs i've encountered:
- Can't switch to proper fullscreen and back without crashing. Bug will not bother you if you have a flat panel display, or you are watching a BluRay that's gotta be downscaled anyway (1920 pixels wide).
- Can't toggle subtitles. Some people have reported that subtitles don't work at all. I can't confirm this.
- A bit odd audio stream selection, many times you gotta unselect secondary steams, such as director's comments, manually; they get selected only because they are set as "english". Bug will not bother you if your files don't have multiple audio streams.
