It used to be a great media player but with the latest version is turn into a adware application, free but bloatware.

may be will use other player like The KMPlayer/Daum PotPlayer but they send shit in internet(like trojan virus)

It shall be noted that it's on the libav team's hall of shame for Open Source license violations:


It kicks VLC's ass.

about GOM Media Player and VLC Media Player Jun 2011

I'd like to update my previous comment.

Been using GOM Player for a while now, and I have to say that in regard to ease of use, functionality and performance, it simply kicks VLC's ass.


Supports lot's of formats

Worked for me on lot's of formats no other player could open.


A good alternative to VLC

Positive Comment by 72dpi
about GOM Media Player and VLC Media Player Jun 2011

I'm not sure I agree with it having a "sleek" UI (although it's definitely better than VLC).

I was actually looking for an alternative to VLC, when I found GOM Player. It seems to play about anything, it's really fast, and watching movies with it on a laptop is a joy. Space = Play/pause, Enter = Full screen / windowed, Esc = Minimize.


Sleek UI

Positive Comment by Aerialsky
about GOM Media Player Jun 2011

Sleek UI,and one feature that I really appreciate from this media player is If you run a video file and there is already a file with a similar name in the directory, it will be automatically added to your playlist.
