It hasn't been updated in a long time, but it's still the fastest H.264 decoder around, both in software and hardware. To give an extreme example, a 2000-era Pentium III can play 720p fluidly using the combination of programs you quoted. And since I know I'll be stuck with my current hardware for a while, I like getting the most out of it
