Currently I update my x264 codec on regular basis(about once a month), since the codec is still under testing phase.
In Future I will continue to do this as I see fit since its the best for quality purpose.
If there are any issues which arise with playback, I would be the first person to know this because I watch each and every second of each and every episode we release.
ffdshow is currently running behind times, as regular updates to keep up with new and upcoming codec support is running thin, same goes with VLC player.
If there are problems please feel free to alert me on IRC, and I will share what I use to get things to work correctly.
