DirectVobSub (vsfilter) [version 2.33]
DirectVobSub is a tool for displaying subtitles. Your subtitle file should have the same filename as your video file (for example
Movie.avi and Movie.sub) and should be in the same folder as your video file. Then the subtitles will automatically be displayed in
DirectVobSub is simply a DirectShow filter which can be used to display subtitle. It integrates automatically with any DirectShow
player like the Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic, The Core Media Player and others.
AC3Filter is a high quality free DirectShow filter designed for real time audio decoding and processing. It has a priority on wide
functionality and convenient settings. Filter can decode following audio formats: AC3/DTS/MPEG Audio. It also supports multi-
channel and digital (SPDIF) outputs.
FFDSHOW is a DirectShow decoding filter for decompressing DivX, XviD, H.264, FLV1, WMV, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, MPEG-4 movies. It uses
libavcodec from ffmpeg project for video decompression, postprocessing code from mplayer to enhance visual quality of low bitrate
movies, and is based on original DirectShow filter from XviD, which is GPL'ed educational implementation of MPEG4 encoder.
First of all, the FFDSHOW consumes way less CPU power than original DivX codecs, even with maximum post-processing. At the same
time the post-processing seems to give excellent quality results and allows more configuring than the original DivX 5 codec. It can
even automaticly reduce post-processing if your CPU is getting overloaded. The noise filter adds a kind of a rasterising effect to
the picture - might be useful in some cases. The alpha version also includes experimental playback for MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 files
(such as VCD and SVCD movies), which works pretty damn well. Only problem is that MPEG-2 playback can't play the SVCD clips
directly from the CD, but requires the video to be extracted to the HDD by using VCDGear first.
