Default Question on JRMC / Convolution

Why do you not use JRMC for video? Also, I'm interested in your thinking on the decision between a single Windows PC for Media Player / Convolution vs separate Windows PC for Media Player & Linux PC for Convolution. The single PC model seems simpler but it doesn't seem possible to allow for other digital sources (e.g., DVD or CDP for family use).

A number of reasons:

1 - I've found that it's much easier to configure the directshow filters EXACTLY as I want them in Zoomplayer. I have a convoluted filter path, and I couldn't get them exactly how I want it in JRMC. I think it was something to do with Reclock...

2 - I've been running Zoomplayer for years, and am (sometimes) involved in the closed testing. Inertia - I use it because I use it. The quality can be equalled, but not bettered. It does the job.

3 - I like to keep things separate. I use WMP for casual listening (coz the wifey can use it), MPC-HC for casual PC style viewing (a la double click file and watch at desk).
But I use JRMC for serious music listening on the HT, with Convolver + DRC, setup for 2 channel playback. Controlled via Gimzo on my Android phone.
And Zoom Player for serious movie watching on the HT, again with Convolver + DRC, but configured for 7.1 channel playback. Controlled via a Pronto (works better in the dark, and you don't have to unlock it like the phone).




This allows me to have each player configured to do a single task well.

In the other room I use XBMC - for similar reasons, the family is used to it and it works.


Simple eh?
