I like the K-Lite codec pack which installs Media Player Classic Home Cinema as one of its components. Plays everything I have thrown at it quite well in most cases and I like the media player classic home cinema player a lot for video. K-Lite

During the install process, one is presented with several options as to which codecs to use for various things. I always check AC3 filter wherever that is offered as an option because I think it provides better sound quality, although just using the defaults will usually work quite well too.

(Choose the "standard" pack or above to get the media player home cinema included.)

I prefer the Media Player Classic, which is also available in a 64 bit version now. No installation needed, he can automatically stretch the video to monitor size and plays everything. Filters can easilly be included, too.

Thanks for the link. I was using Gabest version and I downloaded Homecinema x64.
What's up with those .dlls?

The builtin players, Windows Media Player and Media Center work great when
a properly built codec package such as the Windows 7 Codecs is utilized.
For x64 users there is a 2nd installation required, x64 Components addon

No 3rd party players are needed in this case.

I believe you but 3rd party players have a lot more features than WMP like:
Zoom, Pan&Scan, subtitles, snapshot etc.

The only other file I might need is a .srt file which wmp handles nicely..

+1 for Windows 7 Codecs

Video player that divides video into smaller scenes for preview?
Hi there. I'm looking for a video player that can divide videos into smaller scenes (like every 15 or 30 sec) so that they serve as previews and lets you seek to the part you want. Note that it doesn't really split the video; it just does it on the spot for previewing purposes. This technique was...

If the 64bit players are better can you suggest me one, to see if I...

Video Player Lockup
OK so when I attempt to use any video player on an existing AVI file my system locks up and has to be rebooted. I have tried WMP, VLC (my preference) and KPS. They all react the same way, leads me to believe it is hardware and not a software issue, Is 1 gig of ram enough for this system to...
