trodas is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Best playback quality - setting DivX decoding filters

Once i did a great "mistake", and installed DivX 3.11, and then DivX 5.0.2 over it.

Nothing is that bad, but now, suddently, when i moved the postfilter options down to minimal (this is also so called "quality" level, but its bullshit naming - this just blur the movie even more, so, making the mpeg blocks corners blurry are probably supposed to "increase" of the resulting image quality :evil: ) - but W/O this the movie looks GREAT! :o :shock:

I was amazed! Too many unseen before details and - holly shit, what a sharpness!!! :shock: 8)

Desplite the small size on screen, the movie (Queen of the Damned, BTW) visual aperance nearly startign to be comparable to DVD quality! (i have some more (142) DVDs, so i know what i talking about )

Unfortunetely, this movie cant be resized for fullscreen playback. There are the known jagged edges, so, it just must be played non-scaled, thats all.

Luckily, BSPlayer can do that - just for fullscreen switch to resolution the movie are made for, and - viola - you (ATM sadly only teoreticaly) get a great picture, never seen before.

There are only there problems now.
I reinstalled my windows and i have no idea, how to convice the DivX to just DISABLE the unwanted annoing mpeg block-blurring.

The second problem is, that at least BSPlayer b490, altrought allowed me to play a 512 pixels wide movie on 512x384 screen (hoooray!) has a bug there, the image is veraticaly stretched to about 1/3 its own height... Latest b492 even crash, when you try if convice to use 512x384 res, so, dont try that!

The third problem is, that resolution 640x480 looks ugly. Why, when 512x384 not? Because of microlines! The damn pig*uckers on nVidia just forgot to allow us to enable double-refresh, to we can see this resolution as nice, as the 512x384 is (in fact, because this is higger resolution, it will look even better! And yes, even on 17-19"...!). Solution? Ask these, until they allow to do that. 8) (mails i got )

Want email to some nVidia suckers?
Or can anyone help me with the DivX filters settings - eg. how to hack them to they do NOT blur the image anymore?
Thx.
