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?

On my old pc I had problems with MPC, but now everything works fine and I vote for it. VLC isn't even worth a mention, while GOM player is ok, but has it's quirks. As for "massive codec packs", 99% of all videos are Xvid, so I only need 1 codec installed.

These are the only video players i've used.

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.

I really don't create videos, But for downloaded videos and DVDs, I use DVD Play 3.2 pre-installed from my Compaq notebook. :woot:

To answer your question: Other.

I do need something to play FLV, though... :( Can anyone help?





Thanks in advance...

Wow, I tried VLC Player sometime back, you know, for the easy dreamscene workaround, but quickly discarded it when I couldn't easily use it. HA! I have to give it another try! :woot:


Thanks! B)

I love VLC. While it's not the best GUI in the world, far from it, it gets the job done, and I can even watch videos that aren't done downloading yet. With that, it's cross-platform, and it's ability to play a lot of different formats, it wins in my eyes.

VLC and BSPlayer both are good, but I prefer GOM Player. It looks better and is easy to customize.

most of those, i believe, are some what derivitives of MPlayer i think, although i am not to sure though.

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.
http://mpui.sourceforge.net/

then there is the mplayer-plugin, so far only for linux, but it lets mplayer handle formats on the web in your browser....
