DVD Playback and Purevideo


Active Member
Hi all,

Just a quick question - those people using the Purevideo decoder, what (if anything) do you use to scale your DVD's? I see that people using TT and FFDSHOW scale up their DVD's is the same thing possible with purevideo? Am I getting this all wrong?!

As far as I understand - purevideo adds post processing tweaks in hardware, something that ffdshow does in software.

Scaling is different, that is done by the graphics card and your display device with purevideo. Although with ffdshow you can add extra scaling in software.
