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.

to configure your video card to YCbCr 444 or 422 shades of black lose contrast. where it should be black, becomes a shade of gray.

@themyth I completely disagree. Overrated is also "subjective". The re-size algorithms in madvr work wonders for low bit-rate video! Madvr isn't simple to use and I don't believe its meant to be. EVR is simple and does not even compare when it comes to configuration flexibility! Madvr takes a lot of trial and error to get the settings dialed in, but once you get it right the results are impressive! smooth framerate conversion option is new, it can and probably will be improved. Madvr isn't for everyone or every system. Those of us that take the time to dial it in know that madshi's work is top notch and greatly appreciated!

Highly overrated. The subjective quality stands nowhere near the standard EVR. Comparatively dull colors regardless the color corrections, reduced sharpness. Smooth frame rate conversion has no effect on smoothnes beside dropping the frames. Do not recommend.
