    It's one alternative, not the best, MPC-HC is very very fast and simple , it's a shame that doesn't exist a very MPC-HC equivalent app in Linux comunity.

    It's all about the functionality while playing, the capability in adjusting the control keys and the skip times configuration.

    Yeah, it can be personalized and the wide of the compatible video and audio formats is almost equal, yet VLC is still no capable of being personalized in the important thing to me.

    Lack of functions as well as utter, complete and total stonewalling from devs on implementing handy functions or options. Examples include, but not limited to: Drag window by window frame, go to next/previous video with Mouse4/5 and play next item in folder without having to use a playlist.

    It has the right codecs to play files that are used in mpc-hc to play video files. That's why it can deliver the same output.

    Doesn't even support hardware decoding, crappy UI. Windows 10's Movies & TV is miles ahead of VLC in, basically everything

    Can't save last file position. Can't keep playlists between sessions. Custom hotkeys don't work.
