    Hello there,
    I am not sure if this topic isn't fully answered in another thread, so I will ask for my own.
    If it is answered please link me to the topic.

    I'm going to reinstall MePo1 on my Htpc which I use for years.
    Actually I'm on 1.10 and use the LAV filters/codecs.

    My question is,
    what are actually the "state of the art" codecs for movies and/or TV.
    Is there an codecpack or is it difficult to answer because of the different hardware/software everyone is using?
    What I probably figured out is
    - madVR for 4K with HDR
    - LAV for .h264 & .h265
    what's with DivX or VC1??

    no need for an audiocodec if using passthrough e.g. DTS-HD, DTS, Dolby, Dolby-HD or am I missing it?
    Atmos isn't an option actually for me.

    My System is Win7/64 Bit

    Best regards
