Vlc is obviously the best! Its compatible with just about everything and have if your not a Vista or 7 user you can use it to make a video your desktop background.(Enable Dreamscene in windows 7)

Media Player Classic..tried all the others, sooner or later they all didnt play something..Ive yet to come across something mpc didnt play..

i tried Media player classic, VLC and Mplayer

Media player is messy with subtitles (AAS, embeded etc....) when watching anime this thing sux....
VLS is ok with subtitles but i had problems with frame freezing... from times to timez same frames were freezing and were mixing with other frames... WTH?
Mplayer is the best i have seen until far..... i hope nothing goes wrong with it....

but as well... next versions will show how things will be in the future.... none of players are 100% working that's the only sure...

KMplayer ver. 3.0 [build 1439] is superior to VLC ver. 1.5, Windows Media Player ver. 11. KMplayer will access my 5.1 surround sound and playback Movies and Music in outstanding quality! The others do not.

For subtitles (and he is very fast and easy for use) the best is BS Player and you dont need other player except PowerDVD for DVD movies

I've used all the players in the list and more. I used to use VLC for ages to play any video/audio, until I found out about KMPlayer. I've now been using KMPlayer for atleast 2 years, and i love it! It plays everything i have, it performs really well, and the functionality is far superior to VLC IMO. The controls are easy, and the player looks really nice. The player sits above all windows when playing files, which i like. Specially when listening to music - everything you would need to do can be done by clicking buttons of the windows of KMPlayer, no need for right clicks or menus.

I tried KMPlayer when VLC was giving trouble with MKV files and changing audio tracks. KMPlayer did the job fine.

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

This. I love because i set controls how I want you can do that in VLC but it don't work for me all the time ;(
Is there any similar program that can customize controls ?

This thread made me use KMPlayer a few months ago and I'm happy with the choice. My second choice is VLC.

Mostly using KMPlayer. Because;

- Multiple subtitle support (e.g. English top, German bottom)
- Effective equalizer (and further bass/treble controls)
- Neat and skinnable interface
- Video zoom in and out
- Easy sound / subtitle synchronization
- Easy aspect ratio change (from keyboard)
- Instant response to ff / rew / pause (from keyboard)
- Remember the last played position both for video and audio
- Run multiple instances
- And many more which I have never needed.

KMPlayer was sold to a company (Pandora TV) some time ago. They promised to continue KMPlayer as freeware. I hope they do keep their promise. And I believe that they will, because they have already released an update.

By the way, it is "The KMPlayer". There is also a player named "KMPlayer", but I don't think this thread is referring to it.

Seldomly using VLC when;

- KMPlayer cannot open or play (very rare though)
- playing a .ts file with multiple audio/subtitle streams
- need to stream a video to TV

VLC for video though I reckon WMP handles audio files better. Bugger codec packs, Any audio WMP can't handle I just convert. Oh and Arcsoft Total Home Theatre for bluray & DVD
