    The VLC ActiveX (used by the VLC plugin) is something that may be fixed/updated in the future so it uses the same matching settings in the VLC application itself. Right now we can only manage whatever they made available currently. Audio and Video are processed by the VLC ActiveX -- the video plugin simply tells where to display the video and at what aspect ratio (depending on settings).

    if using built in, very little, the processing of that video is handled by the OS

    audio is unmanaged in Ride Runner
    even volume, the Windows OS mixer manages that

    on my first carpc with RR version 2007 I used media player classic with ffdshow without any kind of problem. Now using same hardware, same drivers and last version of RR, last version of FFDshow I got some errors when playing videos:
    1) i don't know how to explain well but the window of RR becolme inactive and I cannot press any button, the commands are not responding.
    2) "Subscript out of range" error (randomly)

    With VLC I did not have these errors but for some video the audio quality is bad. I'm not a fan of VLC either, I chhose it because gave me less problems than MPC & ffdshow

    I'm asking because, although I don't have any audio issues, the video display is different.
    When playing a movie directly with VLC and it's scaled to fullscreen it's smooth/filtered.
    Within RoadRunner (built-in vlc) the video isn't filtered (just nearest neighbour stretching), so the video is grainy/pixelated.
    So it seems to me that there IS something not working correctly. Perhaps it's a limitation of the VLC ActiveX control ?!

    VLC is not a directshow player, it has its own software decoders built it...
    what ever it does, is what it does... and how ever the vlc activex does, is what we, in rr, can do with vlc

    im sure if you use ffdshow, with its resize filter, you can get nice scaling
    you want to get control of filters, remember windows with the built in player
    will try to create a video graph, using filters with the highest merrits, which might not be want you want...

    media player classic can use built in codecs, and external ones
    again, its how you configure it...

    i would classify all that ADVANCED, and you have to have some understanding on how video playback on windows os works...

    if one keeps it simple, no crazy codec packs installed, just ffdshow latest stable, i think you can get results that work fine

    I just wanted to point out that the audio problem of radu81 could be related, i.e. a restriction of the vlc activex, and NOT a bug in RR .
