jfk Posted January 18, 2014 Report Share Posted January 18, 2014 By default, both Windows Media Player and QuickTime will use the graphics card's hardware accelerator for assistance decoding movies. WATCHOUT on the other hand will not use the GPU assistance. To adjust WMP or QT to more closely approximate WATCHOUT behavuor, you can change WMP or QT settings to disable the hardware assistance. To disable WMP's use of hardware accelerated decoding …Open Windows Media Player and right click on the video windowto open this menu … Select More options …Select the Performance tab of the options window Under DVD and video playbackuncheck Turn on DirectX video Acceleration for wmv files Disable a similar setting in Windows QuickTime via QT Player(screenshot examples from Windows QuickTime Player 7.7.4) … Open Windows QuickTime Player and go to Edit – Preferences – QuickTime Preferences … in the Quicktime Preferences window, select the Advanced tab and under Video – DirectX, turn off / uncheck Enable Direct3D video acceleration These changes have no impact on WATCHOUT itself. The purpose is to obtain results in the viewers that are more closely related to the results you will achieve in WATCHOUT. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
