  • Help find a video player compatible with Apple's file system | 2021-10-11
    If you're referring to a software video player (as opposed to something you can plug your projector into), VLC is the gold standard as far as I'm concerned.
  • Anyone have a link to ending cinematic playthrough with NO commentary? (Win 7 scrub here)
    If you verify the game files, it should redownload all the cinematics and you can watch them in the cinematics folder. I'm not sure if they'll play in Window's Media Player, but if not, I'd strongly suggest using VLC Player for all your video needs. It's just a better and more robust media player all around.
  • does anybody know how to change the save location of youtube-dl | 2021-10-06
    No, that's only for being able to play all sorts of media files. But if you play them with e.g. VLC, even that codec pack is not needed, because VLC has the codecs built in.

    VLC Player is recommended for viewing.
  • LPT: If ever you need a program you want for free (for example a video/photo editor) don't search for "free", search for "open source" to avoid limited trial versions, adverts and malware
    VLC: basically a video player with most of the video codec supported (at least, in my use case, which is pretty small. available on windows, macOS, linux, android, and iOS).

    Run OBS as admin, Keep your quality control on the CQP (quality settings, don't manually set a bitrate for recording), remove your display capture from your scene with the game capture, and then make sure you watch your recordings in a viewer is more likely to run smoothly, such as VLC:

    3) If you're happy to watch the movie on your PC/Laptop use VLC (free, Windows). Open VLC, open the movie, go to 'Subtitle > Add Subtitle' and select the srt file.
  • Hello everyone! Yesterday I exported some of my tracks in WAV files. Today I found this, my pc want to convert them in Word Files. WHAT'S GOING ON? How can I turn them back in wav files? | 2021-09-07
    I am surprised no one has given a genuine answer yet. I would recommend installing a media player to replace whatever default Windows has which is incredibly limited in the file formats it supports. VLC as can be downloaded from here It is one of the oldest media players out there and it is hardened for the job. I've tried dozens from multiple OSes and haven't hit another quite as good. Installing that should solve your problem.
