It's got built-in subtitles, DXVA hardware acceleration, tons of filters, and plays nice with external codecs. Output is quite customizable. Has a nice UI.

I love VLC Media Player, and use it as my primary video player; however, I want surprised to find it incapable of properly reading Star Wars I The Phantom Menace (probably due to the InterActual software it was infected with). Fortunately, this application enabled me to enjoy the movie without any hassles.

I am a Zoom Player user, but the main 3 reasons I ever preferred Zoom Player over MPC, was how you could set Zoom player to play the next media file in the folder, without having to create a playlist for it to play the next file, the ability to zoom in and out the video/window with the mouse wheel and the fact I found a skin that let me shrink the player to the point the window was really tiny, making it perfect for any multitasking work. I also used the shortcut SHIFT+H which would bring the play history in it's nice sleek interface, but that's secondary.

For better or worse, Zoom Player looked better too and all nice, but no matter what, unlike MPC, it did not like external Codec packs. Also after testing for a long time I came to the conclusion that ZP uses more sources than MPC, so MPC is indeed more lightweight.

For anyone that does not like the windows 98 look of MPC, I suggest to look up KCP Codec Pack Black Edition. It is a codec pack compiled to support extra codecs packed with the black edition of MPC, which looks really awesome. If you want to see an image of how it looks if you tinket a bit with it's looks, here it is on my windows 7 machine;

MPCBE

The buttons on the top right do not appear until you move your mouse over there and then they pop up. So do not worry, you won't be watching your movie with these there.

The one and only, although now replaced by MPC-BE, which is even more powerful and fast.

I think MPC HC is the best

I've always used VLC but when I play mp4 or some mkv files and I want to skip from a position to another in the progress bar, VLC takes a long time to render and it's frustrating.

MPC HC is always fast!

Very Quick and Responsive!

MPC loads videos and music very quickly. When I listen to music through vlc, when I try to start a new song, there is about a two second delay, but with Media PLayer Classic, it is almost instantaneous! Very nice player!

I liked this media player, it was fast and light. I could not find out if i could see my album covers for my music, which i would have liked. Good player but something keeps bringing me back to other players.

MPC-HC is my new favourite player regarding playing 1080p-stuff. It looks so beautiful with ffdshow-tryouts. Much better quality than with VLC.

I was unable to play some videos from a DVD that where in a folder (.NFO, etc) and not in a real disk, using VLC Player I had always program crashes. I downloaded this application (MediaPlayer Clasic Home Cinema) and it works like a charm! Thanks!
