Can anyone suggest me about specific software?
« on: January 22, 2012, 11:52:35 am »

2 things:

1. What is better? CodeBlocks or Dev C++? (both are C++ developing IDE's)
2. Which video player do you recommend me, in terms of low memory and cpu use, plus good video playing framerate. Maybe VLC?

(my actual video player is DivX's but it uses all the power of my Intel Pentium IV D:)

Thanks beforehand.

Codeblocks. It's much easier to use from what I can tell.
Dev C++ seems to just indent your code randomly just to anger you. This may just be me though.
I'd recommend vlc as it is easy to use and will play almost anything (unlike windows media player).
However for speed I have found mplayer to be better sometimes as it seems to use video card specific acceleration better, this means it plays video more smoothly and uses less cpu.

Choice of IDE is personal, try them both. I have only used Code::Blocks, and it is good enough for me.

VLC, and if you're an anime fan you should get MediaPlayerClassic with the Combined Community Codec Pack.

For using 10-bit videos? Meh, thx for the suggestion. But VLC is cool enough; only half CPU power is used ^^

I've tried both, and Dev C++ worked a lot better for me. It wasn't any kind of significant difference though, and I was hardly programming on a high level, so take that as you will.
