I bought a cheap bodycam that records in mjpeg uncompressed 720P with a bitrate of 15000 (9,95 from Action)
I tried multiple common players but all stutter
Hard to find a good one but this one plays it flawlessly.
My native players are SM-player and MPC-HC

November 2019 - for new users - Light Alloy is a clone of the venerable MPC-HC player and family, but after the copy not much development was made. So the core code is similar to the version of some years ago, but the interface is ugly, wrong, unusable and not intuitive. The software has a lot of bugs not present on MPC-HC or MPC-BE. The development, if any, is dead and stopped. I don't advice this player...please, just use MPC-HC or MPC-BE or PotPlayer or Zoom Player for a DirectShow based capable video player. Add LAV Filters as splitter, video and audio decoder combo + madVR Video renderer + Sanear Audio renderer; for streaming and internet videos please use the Source Filter 3DYD Youtube Source or directly youtube_dl.exe. That's it.. for a high quality Windows HTPC software enviroment.
