VLC don't have alternative

Positive Review by alsed about VLC Media Player Feb 2015

In my opinion VLC don't have an alternative. Why? Because none of the players don't offer such a wide variety of functions and stability. VLC has one of the best ratio how slow(old)computer is and how good movie can it be played.


GOM Player is more lightweight

Negative Review by Venom88 about VLC Media Player Also mentioning: GOM Media Player Oct 2010

I don't like VLC anymore :(
VLC always crashes when I try to read a CD or a DVD (at least on my notebook and on the desktop).

Now I'm trying GOM Player which is more lightweight too.


I think that GOM Player is a good alternative to VLC: it can open a lot of formats like VLC, regarding the installation it's smaller (GOM Player about 20 MB, VLC 77MB ).

It's a pity GOM Player isn't multilanguage :(


MPC-HC is the most lightweight though.
And is multi language!


The only video player I'll need

It plays almost everything, including DVDs. And it's free. What more could you want?
