What is everyones favorite video playing program? For this thread I would like everyone to follow a few simple rules. I would like to see the version number of the program that you like, a download location, and a reason of why this is your favorite Video Player Program.

1. Program and version number

2. download location

3. Reason

I have 2 favorites

VLC player 8.6i

http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/0.8.6i/win32/

I really like the 7z version of this because it is a standalone program. I prefer not to install programs when possible.

K-Lite Codec Pack 4.1.7 STANDARD

http://www.free-codecs.com/K_lite_codec_pack_download.htm

I use a custom version of this with the " c:\klmcodec.exe -MakeUnattended " command. This is really useful for unattended installations of XP.

Yes, as above, then my preffered playback solution is:

MPC for it's nice clean looks and powerfull backend, coupled together with ffdshow tryouts for decoding/post-processing/subtitling and then optionally Haali Media Splitter(if wanting a more advanced splitter than MPC's internal MP4/MKV/OGM/AVI source filters) and VSFilter(if wanting a more advanced subtitle filter than the internal ones of ffdshow and MPC)...

clsid's MPC builds from guliverkli2 project (last rev. from Gabest with updated libs, patches and small changes):

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ckage_id=245753

Or -

casimir666's MPC mod: MPC-HC (last rev. from Gabest with updated libs, patches and also new development, like e.g. DXVA enabled H264 decoder, EVR renderer and fullscreen d3d anti-tearing mode etc):

http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/

Coupled with -

ffdshow tryouts:

http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/

And optionally -

Haali Media Splitter:

http://haali.cs.msu.ru/mkv/MatroskaSplitter.exe

VSFilter:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...lease_id=541232

For audio, then of-course: foobar2000

my pick:

  • mpc (hc or not) as a player
  • ffdshow, for most mpeg4 asp formats
  • coreavc, for h.264/mpeg4 avc files
  • ac3filter, for ac3 audio
  • haali splitter, as a splitter
  • directvobsub, for subs
  • several different mpeg2 codecs (vista's is pretty decent though)

x264 & xvid also installed, but just for encoding (lots of other tools for that)

I use the installer version of VLC

videolan.org

and i also use the Cole2k Codec Pack (this uses FFDShow as the decoder)

32bit OS only

http://www.cole2k.net/?download=CP-S

With these two tiny bits of kit I have never ever needed anything else to play and sort of media file.

VLC uses FFmpeg's libavcodec directly and doesen't support DShow decoders like ffdshow...
