Suisei no Gargantia – 12

Rackage in SD is still more Rackage than you can handle. Trust me.

Well, the TV station royally trolled us this episode by temporarily rescheduling the show into a standard definition timeslot, meaning that this episode was aired in SD only.

We’ve used the TV broadcast for our usual 480p release, and for now we’ve put out a temporary 720p release using the only HD source available – CR’s video. We’ll be replacing this release with a proper HDTV encode when it airs on another channel in a couple of days, so if you want the best possible quality I’d recommend waiting for that. In any case, here it is, and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how they wrap this one up next week.

Edit: As promised, episode 12’s 720p release has been replaced with an updated version encoded from HDTV.

    Are you guys going to be doing the Ghost in the Shell ARISE OVA?

  2. And I was right all along. [spoiler]The Striker AI gone rouge after the Colonel didn’t survive the emergency hibernation during the wormhole trip to Earth. Probably due to internal bleeding during the last stand against the Hideauze.[/spoiler] Am I right @ MT-Switch? :3

    [spoiler]Damn. Sweet metal to metal action.
    Finally, Ledo had made his resolve to protect Gargantia after witnessing the purging ritual that is similar to Galactic Alliance’s doctrine of eliminate human that are not worth to them. Luckily, Lady Rackage is siding with Flange/Pinion fleet… for now. Mutiny! Arrr!

    Now, what secret that lies beneath Gargantia had it keep the viewers for a long time? A tactical nuke silo? Nuclear powered laser cannon? Or a-la Command & Conquer: Generals Up-link Laser Cannon? Cannot wait for next Sunday to come.[/spoiler]

    C’mon Urobutcher. Keep ’em coming!

    Don’t see why people bash VLC so much, it’s been working just fine for me the 5 years I’ve been using it. Then again, the CPU usage is of no concern for me on my main computer, but I use it on every other computer I have for video playback as well.

    I might not be able to playback 1080p on some of them, but then they usually don’t support 1080p to begin with, my older computers support and play 720p just fine. My netbook can play 720p, but the screen is 480p, it’s unwatchable on the built-in screen (frameloss and slowed playback) but work just fine if I use an external screen.

    The only time where VLC was put down to knees for me, was a soft-rendered, moving letter with a translated overlay, that was a 1080p video, don’t remember which one of the many series I’ve watched it was from though. The scene was about 5 seconds long, and if I let it play for longer than 3 seconds of it, it would freeze up the video, but continue with the audio until forced quit.

    The no end card problem might be due to madVR. I reported it on the bug tracker: http://bugs.madshi.net/view.php?id=96.

  8. @Xythar You mentioned that you’d be releasing the HD airing when it’s aired…can we get a date for that?

  9. Xythar on June 25, 2013 at 7:08 am said:

    @Soulthus Ah, that could be it. I’m using madVR on this PC but I’ve got smooth motion turned off.

    @Liam: Should be some time late Tuesday in American timezones.

    “Don’t see why people bash VLC so much..” because it manages to screw up audio, video and subs besides being CPU heavy for no reason, bad seeking, framedroping for absolutely no reason

  11. asparte on June 25, 2013 at 11:36 am said:

    Is there huge difference between CR video and 720p TV rip?

  12. Thanks for the release, guys. Any idea when you’ll be announcing your summer plans? I have my fingers crossed for Monogatari season 2. *.*

  13. Thanks for the SD release!

    TY for release and I hope u guys pick up Illya and Monogatari season 2 for the summer 😀

    Its true i cant see the end cards with VLC but i did check with my S4 using MX player and its actually there

    Thanks so much for the episode!

    Have a great night!


  17. Noob question time (since 80% of the thread post ranting on VLC/MPC stuff):

    What’s the significant difference of playing the videos on DirectShow Video set on default (Enhance Video Render (custom presenter)) and madVR on MPC with xy-vsfilter setup?

  18. Somewhere in Gargantia’s main ship, there is a slot for that key and when you put it in, the fleet transforms into a super robot and the background music will be “Ga-ga-ga ga-ga-ga Gargantia”.

    I have never used VLC before. However, if Windows Media Player can play the video properly, while VLC cannot, then it is time to question the choice of player.

  20. @Jo :
    No wonder them ships needs to be linked to form that one giant fleet…
    Instead of just sailing alongside each other…
    The WORLD of GARGANTIA indeed… ( <_< )

    “because it manages to screw up audio, video and subs besides being CPU heavy for no reason, bad seeking, framedroping for absolutely no reason”
    I’ve only witnessed the audio/video screw-up once, and evidently, no other media player I tried could handle it better anyway. Except for that one screw-up, the CPU doesn’t use much more than 3-4% for me (around 12% on my netbook), the netbook procured no better result on any other media player.

    “I have never used VLC before”
    How do you know that WMP is better if you never tried VLC? And it’s usually the other way around…

  22. Xythar on June 26, 2013 at 1:34 pm said:

    Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic are not the same thing, by the way. The CCCP includes Media Player Classic, which is the player I recommend.

    @AMg: madvr gives you better scaling options, but taxed hardware more. Basically, if you have fast hardware, might as well make use of it by using madvr.

    Damn, I came here to make a “rack and pinion” comment and was beaten to the punch!

    Will you guys be doing the Bakemonogatari Second Season?

  26. Justgoaway on June 27, 2013 at 7:46 am said:

    Please do Bakemonogatari Second Season.

    Well, I only tell you to question your choice, not to say one thing is definitely better than the other, since I only have experience with WMP and MPC. I only suggest to try out other player and see in how it is better or worse than the player that you are frequently using.

  28. LARGEHARD on June 27, 2013 at 12:22 pm said:

    Can’t we all just enjoy watching this show and stop bashing each others media players and hardware performance…?


    Thanks as always UTW team… 😀

    If there is no problem with the player I’m using there really is no need for me to “question my choice”, however, if you only tell me to try other media players that is a whole different story, there is no reason to not try them.

    On that note, I haven’t tried MPC, so I’ll give that a shot later, just wished it would work on Linux as well, but let’s not be critical.

    I have tried WMP, got annoyed by all the codec downloads and failure to fetch most of them, couldn’t even play an MP3 file last time I tried, downloaded a codec pack of 113MB or something to get them all, and it still would have problems playing some of my media. (Immediately after, I tried VLC and it could play ALL of my media, without downloading 113MB of codecs. Back then, 113MB was quite a big deal to download, just to find out it didn’t work) PS: I don’t really like the over-styled UI of WMP.

    I also tried QuickTime(QT and the alternative QTA), while it can play most of my media without getting a lot of codecs, I don’t like the UI style, but above all else, it use up more than double the CPU workload compared to VLC for me, my Mac-crazy friend says it works perfectly on Mac OS though.

    I’ve tried out some others which I don’t remember the name of, but some quick testing proved them inferior by either using a lot of RAM and CPU or being unable to play most of my media.

    MPC seems to have what I’m looking for in a media player, customizable, lightweight, simplistic UI, so I’ll give it a try.

  30. Thnx for the subs 😀
