Playing a certain file produces very bad video quality on XBMC, but otherwise perfect quality while using Windows Media Player 12, VLC 2.0.1, and MPC 1.6.1.4235 x64. I did notice that MPC 1.5.2.3456 x32 had the same problems as XBMC, so I upgraded to the latest MPC to test, and now it's working.

Here's a screenshot of it working fine: http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/k576...t000-1.jpg

Here's one from XBMC: http://i1116.photobucket.com/albums/k576...hot000.png

FWIW I'm using Eden on Windows 7 x64.

Bit depth : 10 bits

Eden does not support 10bpp video.

Alright then, that explains it. Do you know if the next release will support it, or when it might?
