Yeh, I don't care for this, it's missing the CPU/GPU/RAM utilized info in the Display Stats.

Generally good player, but man does it have configuration overload.
Also takes a lot of disk space compared to, say, the fully equivalent MPC-BE.
Bundling a PUP in the installer is a drawback!

Hard to tell if this is necessary in any way.
MPC-BE's own EVR(CP) renderer is perfectly adequate when set to proper max settings.
EVR is useless with HDR content.

It is useless for HDR though.

VLC Media Player 3.0.8

VLC may have been one of the first universal type multi-platform players that could handle everything without the need for a system-polluting codec pack, but it sure never felt like a true Windows program.
Clunky UI, convoluted settings, and general lack of niceties found in other modern players really hold it back (even though it "just works" for most folks).
Not to mention taking forever between versions. Will 4.0 ever be released?? And finally have seek bar preview, for example? Maybe someday VLC will be a worthy alternative again.
