How to improve video rendering quality in MPlayer

Posted on

MPlayer has lots options for video rendering and filtering. Any suggestions on good MPlayer options that improve video rendering quality nicely?

My ~/.mplayer/config is as follows with 2 profiles:

[fast]
vf=eq2

[default]
vf=hqdn3d 
vo=gl:yuv=3:lscale=5:cscale=5
ao=pulse

The default one gives good video quality by using the hqdn3d video filter while the CPU usage is high. If the CPU is not enough for some high-resolution videos, the fast profile can be used by calling mplayer -profile fast video.mp4 which will then use the less CPU consuming eq2 video filter.
