Comparing CPU and GPU usage while watching MKV files - MPC-HC vs Windows Photos app

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am mostly curious about this. 

 

Receded the CPU and GPU usage between these two apps. 

 

Windows 10 Build in Photos app: 

CPU - 2

GPU - 7

 

MPC-HC: 

CPU 3

GPU 27

 

Curious about the difference in GPU usage. It seems the build in Photos app is way more efficient in playing MKV. 

 

Why is this the case? 

 

Thanks! 

 

Windows 10 Prp

Intel G4560 (built in graphics)

MPC-HC may be trying to apply deinterlacing or some post-processing. You'd have to check the settings and disable all such additional stuff and then check the usage again.

MKV is a video file format, do you view a single frame with photos app? 

MPC-HC is lightweight video playback software, even my old laptop works great with it. I wouldn't even try running win 10 on my hardware...

indeed, this is what surprised me. 

 

"do you view a single frame with photos app?"

maybe this?

I don't know, I don't use MPC-HC. You're just going to have to try different settings and see what effect they have.

you were correct!

 

moving this setting to Default resulted in the EXACT same CPU/GPU as the photos app. 

 

Thanks for the help!!!

 

This was an interesting thing to learn :)
