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.

reply

Agreed.

Even MPC-HC has been discontinued; the current fork is MPC-BE.

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.

One of the ugliest GUIs I have ever seen...why would you design an app around it?

reply

ugliest but most effiency. It can play any media/swf extension, I even can watch anime/movies by using IDM and copy paste link to MPC without delaying. But I find it difficult to play swf games with MPC.

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!
