How to play back Hi10P content:
There are a number of different methods available to achieve (smooth) Hi10P playback:
Download the SMplayer standalone, or just use mplayer2 from the CLI
Grab the latest CCCP and use the player that comes with it (CCCP will dither everything down to 8 bit before rendering. You might also run into performance issues on slower hardware
Use MPC-HC together with madVR and LAV (jump to guide) (maximum quality but needs a bit of configuration + tweaking)
Download the latest unstable build of VLC Media Player (you really shouldn’t be using VLC) and install it
If you’re having trouble playing Hi10P due to performance reasons, CoreAVC 3 is now out, but it still has some issues. Oh, and apparently worse performance than ffdshow. Never mind this, don’t install CoreAVC except for 8-bit software decoding (oh, LAV Video has faster CUDA decoding as well for 8-bit)
Mplayer2 (and SMplayer by extension) will be fine for most users, especially those who want something that just works out of the box. For the maximum playback quality however, you’ll need to use MPC-HC + madVR as shown below.
If you use some other operating system like GNU/Hurd/Linux/Haiku/BSD/VMX/OS/2/MS-DOS/Menuet/BareMetalOS/whatever, it’s the same deal — just get mplayer2 or VLC.
On Mac OS X, get Mplayer OSX with these binaries if you want OC and other neat stuff.
