F.A.Q’s

Are your encodes 10bit or 8bit? What’s the difference?
We re-encode anime in 10bit via x264 using CRF method. 10bit encoding gives better compression and retention of quality compared to 8bit counterparts when all other encoding parameters remain constant.

How does your multi-sub releases work?
Sometimes we may use more than one fansubs for our releases to please the followers of individual groups, nonetheless it gives you more freedom/option to choose your favourite sub. Normally, in such releases one fansub is set as default that will automatically run on playing the video and the other subs can be choosen from your video player options to replace the default if needed.

Playback Issues

KCP

We strongly recommend our users to download and use Kawaii Codec Packbecause it is the best thing that has happened to video playback. When installing KCP make sure you read through the instructions and settings info on the download page. People who want to question why, they can do a brief google/youtube search and relieve their minds of any doubt. But if you still insist on being a noob then just use CCCP. 

If playback is impossible (no video) then go to KCP Settings>Video tab>Check Enable EVR-CP. However, this means disabling madVR!!! What is the point then! Check the manual method below. Trust me its worth it.
