about Media Player Classic and MPC-HC Mar 2012

MPC has been discontinued. The current version is MPC Home Cinema. I would remove it from the page, or at least notify that's been discontinued.

about Media Player Classic and FFDShow, DirectShow Filter Manager Aug 2011

The title says it all. Media Player Classic plays everything I throw at it and plays everything very well! Standard definition, high definition, it doesn't matter. MPC plays it all!

about Media Player Classic and K-Lite Codec Pack Jun 2011

The interface is simple and easy to use. You use the k-lite codec pack that is bundled with it to play any video that you can ever come across.

It is very versatile, light weight, clean interface, has many complex functions in the back-end if you like to tweak it but simple front-end to not frighten users away.

I used Windows Media Player a lot of Windows, but it gave me problems after a while and this was a nice small program that could play all my videos quickly and painlessly. and I dont remember for sure... what is called right now but I think... I used this program with another program to let me upsample videos when I played it on my big screen TV.

I suggest pairing media player classic with Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) - actually, CCCP comes with Media Player Classic. I haven't had any issues with software bloat since. CCCP was designed to reduce codec bloat.

When paired with the k-lite codec pack, Media Player Classic becomes an ultra-lightweight media player that can handle anything thrown at it. Almost any feature in this program can be customized to your liking. When you want a customizable program that will load to play your video files faster then most other popular choices, MPC is the way to go.
