VLC and Windows 10

Hello everyone !

I just bought a new laptop (gigabyte aero 15) working on windows 10 64bits. I'm discovering this OS and its shortcomings... It seems that everything I have installed on my old PC (windows 7) works flawlessly and the same things I install on this new laptop have a bug. I don't know if it's hardware or software related. Anyway, when I wanna play a 4k video in VLC (latest x32 or x64 version) it is so laggy ! If I play the same video with windows media player, it works just fine. But I wanna keep using VLC obviously. I read on a forum the gpu acceleration in vlc is broken on windows 10. Someone else managed to have it worked fine with a nightly build. But strangely, there's only a few forum posts about this important issue. So I need your help, do I do something wrong here ? Is there a version working properly ? Thank you !

I am using https://mpc-hc.org/ which is an open source media player, which I found excellent. I haven't used any VLC since going to Windows 10.

How's the Aero by the way? I am reading excellent reviews, but I just bought (in the summer, actually) an Asus GL502, as the Aero series wasn't even available in my country.

Thanks for the recommendation for mpc-hc
