I was wondering the other night this very question. I'm pretty clueless at what the media splitters/Filters do so I thought I'd post a question on what exactly these little apps do. How do they work? Why do we need them etc?
Do players like MPC HC, PotPlayer, SMplayer, Zoom Player have them built-in?

excellent explanation jagabo...very "101"and easy to understand
what makes these seprate Filters/Splitters any better than the other?...i.e...will Haali be any better than LAV and vice versa?...do they have the same basic compenents built in or are they different?
Different reader/splitter packages may handle different file types. I've Haali for years. I'm aware of LAV but I've never used it. Microsoft often changes the A/V specifications to add features like support of interlaced video and hardware MPEG 2 and h.264 decoding. Different readers/splitters (and players) may lag in support for those features. And different software has different bugs. Basically, use what works for you.
