Not discontinued. Sometimes there are long breaks between releases, it can be months, or years. One break was 2 years (between 2015 to 2017).

A new version was just released (Sept/2018).

Seeing how this post is old I will update you. The project is no longer developed nor maintained.

Official https://mpc-hc.org/ website has been updated and all Download pages have been removed and or hidden, you can longer download 1.7.13 from official source. There is also a banner on the homepage that reads "MPC-HC is not under development since 2017. Please switch to something else."


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!

Filled a Niche Left By VLC Media Player

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.

Better than VLC

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

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.

Best player I know of, when VLC fails I use this. User interface could use an upgrade.

This is open source software... It's not discontinued!

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 it

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.

VLC is still good, but MPC-HC is better

-Lighter
-More stable
-More compatible video and audio formats

The team stopped the project in 2017, but a developer who worked for 5 years on the original project took over the source code to release a more recent version, so, MPC-HC is not really discontinued

To DL the last version : https://github.com/clsid2/mpc-hc/releases/tag/1.8.8
