I did not ask for h264. I do not want h264. Yet slowly, this is becoming more and more the format of choice. It makes my old shitbox slow to a crawl and even with CoreAVC and custom mplayer settings I can't bear to try and watch a show with the audio 10 seconds ahead of the video and subs.
For something that's supposed to be higher quality it makes me want to tear my hair out in frustration... Jesus christ. My computer's not even that old.

Why would you want this? Larger files and decoding so complicated that anything less than a multi-cored rig nearly catches fire trying to play it back, for what?

Please, tell me, why? I know I'm not the only one who hates it. I know, I know, "get a better computer lols" but I have no need to upgrade and I'd rather not dump a wad of cash into a new PC just so I can play along with the subbers.

I was happy with the old avi files, even if they were bad quality sometimes.
