Comments about VLC Media Player as a Alternative to MPC-HC
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.3
work perfectly all codecs0
For me I could not play 4k videos on VLC, no matter of the settings, I was using the latest version but nothing. With MPC-HC I could play 4k out of the box.0
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.0
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.1
Comments about MPV as a Alternative to MPC-HC
Ultra lightweight, minimal interface, borderless / frameless if desired.-1
A minamalist GUI is not a positive trait, especially for a media player. The appropriate amount of command line usage for an everyday application in 2022 is zero.1
Wow, extraordinary: simple, light, just gets the job done. No tons of codecs tuning, only an effective player.-1
- Plays all video files
- Has a simple and uncluttered GUI
- Easy on the CPU and battery
- A bit harder to set up than other media players

Comments about SMPlayer as a Alternative to MPC-HC
Very similar to MPC-HC in terms of features, and very customisable as well, even though it's lightweight all the same. Includes one of my favourite features from MPC-HC which is the subtitle search and download feature for the video file you're watching.7
SMPlayer lacks the features and the feel of MPC-HC-1
It is more complete than MPC and has the same perfomance.-3

Anyone looking for a replacement of MPC-HC is looking for a good video player not a music player.20

Celluloid (formerly GNOME MPV) is a simple GTK+ frontend for mpv. Celluloid interacts with mpv via the client API exported by libmpv, allowing access to mpv's powerful playback capabilities.
Videos (previously Totem) is the official movie player of the GNOME desktop environment based on xine-lib or GStreamer. It features a playlist, a full-screen mode, seek and volume controls, as well as keyboard navigation.
