But you're welcome to continue polluting your beloved dsplayer thread with pointless posts, I don't mind...

It has become too obvious Windows is not important to many Kodi developers. However, this seems to be a vision based on personal philosophy and developer bias more than the needs of users. Considering 35% or more of Kodi users are downloading it to use with Windows, Windows is most likely under-supported.

It seems silly, given almost every HTPC sold comes with Windows installed and a savvy user base that already knows how to use the OS. It is taught in school.

So, the only way forward:
  • Separate the player components and offer the video renderer as a binary, so a range of options can be used.
  • Fork mpv, or a take a cue from mpv and attempt to reproduce some of madVR's features in Kodi's video player.
  • Leave the video rendering options alone. I hope this is not the case. I'm sure even Linux users are annoyed by the mediocre quality of DXVA scaling and pixel shaders that don't even use an anti-ringing filter.
It would be nice if Kodi was a little more bold with its vision when it comes to the topic of "quality." TV, speaker and A/V manufacturers are obsessed with these qualities, but Kodi seems content to offer a slick user interface with a rubbish player.

Maybe it's time you go outside and play for several weeks instead of trolling here.
