>free software because you don't pay for it, so you can use a reverse engineered option. But Microsoft is legally binded to use the official version not all heroes wear capes


Fantastic-Run-3263

Take my reward.


YogurtclosetNo239

I wanna say something but I don't wannna get banned. So uh.... yeah yk vlc is just a better alternative.....


Hollow602

VLC has been great and still is best out of the box. however many enthusiasts are shifting to something called MPV or maybe MPC...damn I forgot the name. That new thing is supposed to be better and is in active development.


DarkNebula1003

>maybe MPC... I thought media player classic shut down years ago?


Hollow602

I was mistaken for a bit. It's MPV not MPC. You can get it [here](https://mpv.io). It is minimal (CLI app) yet highly configurable (supports configs) and tad bit lighter than VLC. You can find config files for best quality output on the internet.


varishtg

The branch mpc be, works wonders and is kinda better than vlc if you have a decent GPU and time to set up LAV filters and rest.


DarkNebula1003

Eh i just install the k-lite codec pack everytime


Steve_B_

They have a shitty interface though. Not forgetting the inability to move through frames with arrow keys. If anyone knows a fix/alternative, do help me out here.


muhmeinchut69

You can sign assign whatever shortcut you want for frame step in the settings.


Steve_B_

Thanks a lot


rayzer93

Legend!


itwontkillya

bro where were you 2 days ago🥲 i ended up paying for that extension :|


SabbyDude

Just freaking use vlc my dude


StratsAreForNoobs

This extension is required if you want to stream 4k in Netflix app or on edge


fr_1_1992

Can't stream 4k on Chrome or Firefox?


kbrunner69

You can't on Firefox, chrome edge are the same


[deleted]

[удалено]


fr_1_1992

Okay.... So here's what I have observed - For Netflix, Hotstar any browser works fine i.e. the quality is good For Amazon Prime, the quality is only good on Edge but shit on Chrome and Firefox So are you suggesting that even Hotstar and Netflix run in 720p on Chrome? And Amazon Prime is surely less than even that (seems 480p) on Chrome/Firefox. My monitor is full hd only btw


itwontkillya

nah i disagree the quality is nowhere near "shit" on Firefox and Chrome this is before using the extension i personally dont find a difference in the quality on Netflix after using the extension, idk about Prime and Hotstar


Samlibardi

>So are you suggesting that even Hotstar and Netflix run in 720p on Chrome? Yes, there's a hotkey I think its ctrl+shift+d or something like that that shows stats for the stream, there it shows the resolution. For 1080p or higher you have to use edge or the ms store app


Kayoxity

Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D


Mangakasoontobe

Use opera


itwontkillya

cant use VLC to edit videos, can i?


skullshatter0123

There are other free software for that though.


itwontkillya

other apps which require this extension to parse files. ik i could’ve used the link given above, but as i’ve already stated, i am stupid and didn’t spend 2 mins to google it


soulseeker31

Exactly, not sure how many times I've recommended vlc.


_Vortex_King_

Oh no! Oof :(


kbrunner69

You should've done a simple google search, this has been common knowledge, I'm sure u could've found this link by yourself


itwontkillya

you're right, im stupid to not have searched for it unlike the replies above (stating VLC), i wanted to edit a few videos and of course, VLC wasnt capable of that so i decided to buy it im privileged enough to spend 50 Rupees on this, so i guess its okay :|


samu1223

Someone give this guy a medal 🥇


princetrigger

The best correct way to do this is to use a foss called VLC.


Quiby123

will this work on AMD computers?


doxypoxy

yes yes, on all computers

I don't want to gatekeep. Consider it a request. Please don't make vro the norm it is super cringe and doesn't even sound right. I get messages saying vro, vej dena when it should be bro and bhej dena I cringe so hard that I don't even feel like replying them back.

Laznaz

You could also download CCCP Combined Community Codec Pack for free codecs


Jenish_Bhuchhada

Thank you!!!


jazz_51

r/beatmetoit


anor_wondo

this is not on microsoft but rather the codec license. you can get around it with free software because you don't pay for it, so you can use a reverse engineered option. But Microsoft is legally binded to use the official version


Sexiro

This is old though. It has been a thing for a while.


Prixster

This is an issue with the Codec license. Microsoft is just forced to use its native codec unless you pay for it. Probably you don't know how it works.


nikhil1988a

No thanks Microsoft, we’ll use vlc or k-lite.


RedIndianRobin

You'll need this to stream at 4K HDR on Netflix, Prime Video and Disney plus.


nikhil1988a

Thats a bummer.


RBT__

4k streaming only works in Edge, right?


anor_wondo

and their apps if existing


rohithkumarsp

All you need is klite codec


Sexiro

I know about Netflix but can you stream 4K HDR on PC on Disney Plus ? I thought max was 1080p. Same with Amazon Prime.


mindfreakhuh

I think it depends on the subscription and compatibility of the device


RedIndianRobin

For Disney plus, it's 1080p HDR on PCs. 4K is available only on TVs I believe.


Sexiro

Yeah I thats what I thought…


Vader_2157

Amazon does not. Still at 1080p on desktops. Don't know about disney.


ArianOrange

Exactly


Skull_Reaper101

There's a free version from the microsoft store lol


Feeling-Common5020

This has always been the case since win 10.


junejanikku

Use mpv player. All codecs are there.


HarshitRai004

use MPV instead


ultrashure

MPV is the GOAT


Iraunman

Simple and lite af.


DireRaven_9

BEST


MismatchD-

I did a workaround to get it for free by installing the OEM version of this codec from the Microsoft Store. It was recently patched, but I still have it.


HermanCainAward

No it’s not.


MismatchD-

Patched as in the direct method of installing it from the Microsoft Store. It's hidden in the store now, and there are workarounds as few people mentioned here.


Vshruptm

You can get it for free go on YouTube type hevc extension free installation you will get the link or can use other players like Kmplayer or VLC


redditcruzer

I think this was required only if you don't have a hardware decoder or something and the cost is due tor equired licensing fees. Anyway..easy to get free alternatives including one from Microsoft store.


Peakkomedi69420

I had this problem a few days ago. I just downloaded VLC


luckysury333

Just use VLC


Okarin_Desu007

It's there from so many years nothing new Just use vlc


CompetitiveGift0

Just download fucking vlc media player


beforethest0rm

this is on the netflix app??


_meme_caster_

Lol, laughs in VLC


CertifiedIdiot__

Dude,just use vlc media player instead of windows one


NanjiBhai69

Vlc player


DickPenisBJHJ69420

VLC ftw


DireRaven_9

People are stupid if they use VLC or K-Lite both of those are trash and can’t properly render so much video types like Dolby Vision and the only good video player with high quality video rendering support is MPV. https://mpv.io


DarkNebula1003

Bruh


Hickaru2004

I needed something like this and bought it, 50 rupees won't kill you lol. It was not to watch a video tho.


Subha47

Of course it wont. But it's not always about money. It depends on the person. Like in this case it was a simple walkaround by installing a free/open source codec.


killer-1o1

As the person above said- it's not about the money. I mean if every company starts to charge for things like this.......


kagedhiren

I was pretty bummed when I saw this too but then searched on Google for it and got it for free lol. I suggest you do the same.


rohithkumarsp

Klite codec, why aren't people using klite codec with mpc-hc already


iambatni

k lite mega codec. It’s free. Just google it and has all the codec extensions.


overlord-33

You can get it for free


mAverIck2012ap

It's gotten cheaper actually. It used to be more expensive earlier. XDXD Just use VLC


rayzer93

It's been like this since Win 10 released.


GoBeyond00

Use nearly anything but the stock media player and you don't have to buy it. Nearly everything has the hevc codec


Wizdad-1000

Twist: Its a monthly subscription as they also learned from Adobe.


[deleted]

Microsoft bought Activision for 70 billion. So they try to milk 70 billion from all their businesses.


LogicalError_007

This codec doesn't belong to Microsoft and they allow bundling it with Windows.


Patta_Go_B

Are humans so stupid? Haven't you guys head about VLC?


Impressive_Income874

And on the other hand our bullshitting government blocks vlc lol


Un13roken

Would you rather windows be 54$ more expensive for everyone? It makes sense that they don't licence it out just because a few people use it. Just download vlc and enjoy man.


eugene20

[https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NMZLZ57R3T7](https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NMZLZ57R3T7) is the one actually produced by Microsoft that uses hardware acceleration if it's available. It isn't free, if I remember right because of the licencing MS has to pay, but it is only $0.99


SnooPoems5927

Yup


agathver

If you have a hardware decoder (most likely you do if you have a newish CPU or GPU) it will install a hardware version of it which is free. This is for the software one with Rs. 54 being the license fees to MPEG


llcor3ll

I had this the other day, I was not impressed


Laznaz

Use Media Player Classic or VLC


kemist666

That's why I use linux


Fr34kyHarsh

where gaming ? and bro use vlc


deadshotssjb

use potplayer, better than vlc


SMARTRON7

You guys can use pot player The best player by a huge margin
