VLC vs. BS Player vs. GOM Player vs. KMPlayer vs. Media Player Classic
Posted 23 September 2007 - 05:15 PM
These media players are mostly used for playing the Divx/XviD AVI videos downloaded from the net. All of these players use their own codecs, where as you have to install codec bundles like K-Lite Codec Pack to play any video format on Media Player Classic and WMP.
Which one are you using?

VLC: Perfect player but lacking in GUI.
GOM: Bets GUI, but lacking in color correction.
MPC: Too simple for my taste, but perfect color toning etc.
WMP: I use it for music only.

If VLC does not work, try MPlayer http://www.mplayerhq.hu/ .. it was the standard, and still is, in linux for a long time. think of it is a VLC with a bit of a better GUI that is skinnable.
If your running Windows, you may want to try out MPUI, an alternative front end to MPlayer, incase you dont like it's own front end.
then there is the mplayer-plugin, so far only for linux, but it lets mplayer handle formats on the web in your browser....
