    I heard it mentioned about uploading lossless files to the site. How could I play Lagarith, F1V1, all the Huffyuv versions and all the other lossless compression codecs? The default players in Windows cannot play them. Even VLC doesn’t support HYMT.

    BBB, I'll rephrase that for you VLC Player plays every lossless codec that I throw at it. I don't use HYMT because I read somewhere it's dodgy.

    FYI, if I really want to have a good look at a video, I'll use VDub2, mainly because I can step through each frame with the arrow keys (and do a quick, temporay deinterlace with the in-built filter if needed).

  3. HYMT is produced by a multithreaded variant of HuffYUV.

    ffmpeg includes decoders for it. So most advanced players can play videos encoded with it, without installing a system codec.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the codec. It's just that it's not commonly used and not maintained. There are better options these days.
