ReClock DirectShow Filter Description
ReClock DirectShow Filter is a software application that provides users with a simple means of getting rid of faulty playback of AVI and MPEG files, by tweaking a large number of audio and video settings.
The setup process is a piece of cake, while the interface is not particularly appealing. It comes with three tabbed panes which includes a large number of information, a few check boxes and some drop-down menus. It does not enclose any Help contents, and therefore, it might be a good idea to only let experienced people handle this program.
Tweak some audio configurations
First and foremost, you should know it is possible to configure some audio settings. For example, you can choose which device to use with DirectSound, WaveOut and Kernel Streaming, as well as select the audio interface to use for PCM or SPDIF/AC3 sound.
You can also input the sound pre-buffer size, and latency for PCM and SPDIF, enable audio time stretching and force ReClock to be loaded in PowerDVD.
Video and more advances options to customize
When it comes to video settings, it is possible to choose the hardware access method (DirectDraw or Direct 3D) and the monitor detection method, as well as set up the utility to determine the frame rate of media files using DirectShow and a built-in estimator.
Some advanced options help you to enable a VSYNC connection with a VMR9 or another renderer, give high CPU priority to your multimedia player, enable events notifications and logging, and clean up video clocking timings database.
Conclusion and performance
It does not use a large amount of system resources in order to work properly, and its response time is quite good. The interface could use some improvements.
All in all, ReClock DirectShow Filter proves to be a useful piece of software, for those who encounter some issues in correctly viewing AVI and MPEG videos.
