What is madVR?
madVR is an advanced video renderer written by Mathias Rauen, which leverages the power of your graphics card (“GPU”) for advanced video scaling and processing.
Some of the advanced features that madVR offers include: high precision YUV>RGB conversion, inverse-telecine with decimation to extract 24p from a 29fps source; frame blending to play back video smoothly regardless of the source framerate or refresh rate; colorspace transformations and 3DLUT calibration.
How do I use madVR?
In MC's options for video, change the video mode from Red October Standard to Red October HQ.
Tools → Options → Video → General Video Settings → Video Mode: Red October HQ
That's all that's needed. The next time you play a video, Media Center will download the required files for the plugin to work.
