NEW: For Windows Users, check out the new Kawaii Codec Pack (KCP) made by Swaps4 from Haruhichan that... basically does what this guide is for, but in a easy user-friendly wizard! It is still in BETA, but please still try it out, and let me or Swaps4 know of any problems you might encounter!
Can't figure out how to get our files to play? This section will have all the information you'll need!
For Windows, there's two recomended and officially supported methods from Elysium Subs. One utilizing Media Player Classic - Home Cinema as the main player and one using KMPlayer.
I recommend using the KMPlayer method due to the overall faster speed, stability, and customizability of the KMPlayer program, but MPC-HC will work just fine for most people. However, if you are adventurous and want to try out a new method, KMPlayer really is a GREAT alternative. If you want to have both options available, I highly recommend you follow through the MPC-HC guide FIRST, then do the KMPlayer guide. They can work alongside each other. Both guides configure your computer to be able to playback all 10-bit video encodes!

Other Operation Systems:
If you have a very low spec computer and HD video playback lags, install and use the CoreAVC decoder. Make sure to get version 3 or higher, as anything lower will not support 10-bit. Don't use this method if you computer can decode the files perfectly fine. If this still doesn't fix it, I suggest you invest in a better computer.
If you are having trouble playing FLAC Audio, install the madFLAC codec here.
PS3 or Xbox 360 (or any UPnP Media Device) Playback:
Note: You will need a fairly powerful computer (Dual-Core Minimum) to use this method, as it is processing on-the-fly video transcoding.
