    • I had some rare cases were VLC and MPlayer couldn't play a video correctly. MPV did it for me on Linux and Windows. Also like the GUI (or the lack of it) a lot more. vektorwegDec 2016 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There was a time when VLC was justifiably considered the best open-source cross-platform movie player. MPV has closed the gap substantially and is likely to work out-of-the-box in a minority of cases where VLC gets stuck. Excellent software. Open souce (trustworthy) and free, of course.

    • Foobar is a wonderfully customizable app for playing music files. It is very configurable and can be skinned and adjusted in many ways. Compared to VLC you can make Foobar look really cool if you want to use it as your main audio player. It has a good number of plugins for playing other audio types and organizing your audio library. kholdstayrJul 2017 • 5 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Bundleware The installer contains additional bloatware that can hijack your browser's settings. Be careful during the installation:
    • Its effects are easier to use and it has an extensive Preferences selection; BE AWARE, they have a separate music player. I have both. the Reverb is solid. you can avoid the crapware by doing the first download from Ninite and just updating or do a custom install.
