The new releases don't work on my system. I am using the next to latest video driver from Nvidia 255.82. .8821 works Flawlessly! .8821 is Fantastic! But all of the newer .89x versions crash, give you a black screen you can't get out of, or jutter supper bad like you are running it on a one-core pc with a 32k VGA card. I've got a fairly "standard" set up; libde 0.2 builds of LAV 0.65 spliter and video, FFdshow Tryouts Audio 4531, xySubfilter, Reclock, on top of MPC-BE 1.4.5 Build 677. I'm running AMD FX 8-Core, 8 Gigs RAM, MSI NiVidia GTX 750ti (dual fan), with next to latest driver (255.82), on Windows 10 x64 Pro. Like I said, .8821 works AWSOME! No change in settings from .8821 to the .89x series (tried 01-05), and it turns to garbage. I did try it with Nivida driver 255.98, with same results. Also, Norton doesn't like the new build, 8905, and quarantines one of the dlls. I hope this is helpful and that they can fix it.

madVR has a lot of features so I made a very complete guide to setup madVR with MPC-HC.

madVR is skipping frames after version 0.87.9 even for default settings. Tried upto version 0.87.14 but still same issue.

Nice for beginner and advanced user alike, if you're too stupid to understand all the option you can just leave it at default and it will work better than other renderer out there.

Good when it works. Started nicely but evolved into kind of bloatware, now you have smooth video options and video renderer but you still lack a guide or manual to work out things like calibration profiles, or buffer optimizations. Error Diffusion only accepts DX11 (aka Vista and higher) and on the latest version techsmith isn't rendered. Support also is nonexistent.
Don't bother if you don't wanna be bothered.
