Enjoy crisper, cleaner videos with SmoothVideo Project

Trying out a new video player might get you a better interface, wider format support, more tools and extras. But the core video quality will be essentially the same, just a faithful rendering of your source footage.

SmoothVideo Project (SVP) goes a step further by using frame interpolation to perhaps double your video frame rate, delivering noticeably smoother, crisper pictures.

While that sounds like a resource-hungry process, the developer says GPU acceleration support enables you “to watch FullHD 1080p-video recalculated to 60Hz in real-time using a mid-range CPU and almost any GPU hardware”. And it’s free for personal use.

Installation is straightforward, and relatively unintrusive. There’s no adware or pile of codecs, you’re told exactly what’s happening, and at a minimum you can just accept all the default settings. Although to allow for more tweaking we’d recommend you check “Install and register MadVR” and “Use MadVR in Media Player Classic Home Cinema” when the options appear.
