To cut the matter short, this tool is ideal, to make your UHD/(+HDR) videos going smooth and viewable. Only installing popular and well-known videoplayer like VLC, MPCs and PotPlayer didn't helped me to watch videos on my new 2160p HDR10 TV, lots of lags.
LAV Filters Megamix did great job with lots of explanations on developer's site. After installing it with MPC it was still not running fine, but reinstalling with PotPlayer it worked very well in playing back of every different encoded video.
So far so good, but there are generally some issues:
1. for a beginner, its not easy to decide, what really necessary/needed to install. after installing, you also have to configure LAV Splitter, LAV Audio, LAV Video settings. the installer didn't do it for you
2. user settings, especially difficult to configure PotPlayer behave & look, are after installation and also after updating gone. needs some time and patience to restore. there should be a big warning.....
3. i got a lot of permanent freezes, while starting a video and shortly after starting another one
My configuration: i5-4570, 8 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 1060
Conclusion: LAV Filters Megamix is a very nice tool collection to get your videos to run properly. big rocommendation, but could be for non-geeks easier to use. hopefuly it gets more stable. 8/10 score right now, but it has the potencial to run to the max of 10
