    Not sure if there's such a thing.

    My current setup is a 2560x1440 27" monitor, with a 660Ti card.

    Is there any software that can be used to upscale lower res videos (i.e. all resolutions lower than 1440p), whether it is found on the web (youtube, vimeo) or played locally (madVR can be used only for local files I presume).

    looking forward to the suggestions!

  2. Play video full screen = upscale

    a 720p video is still a 720p video when played full screen. To illustrate, a 720p looks worse on a 1440p monitor than when on a 720p monitor.

    Not exactly, since the number of pixels have been increased by a factor of four. It's now 1440p.

    Which is about how yours will look if you try and upscale in real time. There are better upscalers but they won't work in real time, and the improvement still won't be all that great.

    It's a matter of the quality of the upscaling. Sharpness vs. aliasing artifacts. Graphics cards typically support point, bilinear, and bicubic scaling. So you're already gettings upscaling. What you are looking for is better upscaling.

    alright sure, maybe I wasn't clear about the terminology. So where/how can I get better quality upscaling (compared to what's stock)?

  7. You can't. Video on web is played by eather Flash player that can not use any external render or by web browser that can not use any external render, too.

    You can only download video and use madVR to upcale it to full screen.

    Not unless you can convince your browser to use madVR as the output device.
