media player classic
My first post...
Initially I could not start anything on my "DVD Super Multi drive" - HL-DT-ST DVDR GH41NAM. I did some online research and downloaded some sort of codec. Now, at least, the drive opens when I click on its icon in NBVCXZ (Gateway name for "My Computer").
This morning I saw a new icon on my desktop - Media Player Classic. I inserted a DVD that I played yesterday on a standard DVD player. MPC opened as soon as I clicked play. I saw the opening/title still frame, tried both "Play" buttons (there was another one in MPC toolbar but the entire toolbar was grey. After playing more with the MPC I found no mention of Windows 7, just XP and Vista. So I downloaded the latest version of MPC, 22.214.171.12403 (the one I discovered this morning is 1.4.2499.0). To my surprise, both icon peacefully co-exist on the desktop, and can be opened independently. The only difference I noticed: the original one says "64-bit Edition" on its interface (although the new one installed in the same folder: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Essentials Codec Pack\MPC\mpc-hc.exe", just one is marked mpc-hc and the other one mpc-hc64.
I could not play music CD, as Real Player is my default audio player and I could not change it to MPC as it is not listed in "Change" window (which does not bother me much as Real Player is good enough).
Do I need to install something else to bring MPC to life (whatever version)?

It appears you downloaded "Essentials" Codec pack, which happened to include MPC.
MPC is primarily a video player. What happens when you attempt to play an avi file or an mpeg file or a wmv file?
You should not have to download anything else if you want to use MPC. You may have to change file associations.
Real Player is difficult to deal with and likes to remain the audio player, which seems to be OK with you.
