Light Alloy - a decent media player

Light Alloy media player is a new release (August 2014) and can either be installed or you can run the portable version.

On my machine I've downloaded the portable version and run it from a RAMdisk and it's pretty good.
It installed no spyware or toolbars.

Portable version: No need to associate any file types.

Some settings to help it work a little better. Press F10 to open options. (Run as admin) Swith to advanced mode.

Enable faster jump/ seek

It seems like a good choice. I am a VLC user for the longest time, though. It'd be hard to try and get used to something different. I might check it out regardless.

VLC Media Player

I still keep VLC installed as my default media player (for video) but sometimes like to try something different. I've been impressed with both Light Alloy portable version along with Splayer (English) portable version as they both seem to offer much better picture quality than VLC!

+1 for SPlayer Portable. As a bonus for those who like to watch Japanese movies/tv shows.. sometimes it even fetches the .srt English subs without manual intervention.

I still keep the portable version of Light Alloy along with S-Player but have been mostly using Pot Player for the last six months or so.
