Windows 7: what is the best out and out media player

08 Oct 2009   #31

Windows 7

I've always sworn by KMPlayer although have tried VLC & MPC, but the other day I tried out watching an avi with ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre and wow the picture difference was huge over the others for colour quality

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

Just tried Arcsoft TMT and did not find any significant improvement over what I get from properly configured MPC-HC plus I vastly prefer the MPC interface. I compared the same AVI file in both players. Seemed almost identical video image quality to me. I really couldn't say one was better than the other in terms of picture quality, imo. I'm watching on a 24" 1920 x 1080 LCD monitor.

So for me, no compelling reason to spend money on a media player.

Windows 7 x64 SP1 - Ubuntu 10.10 x64 - Linux Mint 10 (dual boot + Virtual Box)

JRiver Media Center 14 for music (its the best ofr quality and managing tagging and big colletions) and for video its nice.

MPC Home Cinema for quick video viewing and not so common formats

Cyberlink Power DVD for DVD and HD Video. The quality is awesome.

Got them all working OK on Win7 x64 b7600

Windows 7 ultimate

I've resigned myself to using iTunes as my main music player now, mostly because I like listening to a lot of podcasts. Before I used Winamp a lot, but I've tried most others as well.

Notice how JetAudio seems to be one of tha rare (only?) players whose video window behaves like Windows Media Player when it's minimized - the video keeps playing down there and it can be Aero Peeked.

Win7 2100

Audio: +1 vote for MediaMonkey - awesome DB tools for large music collections!

Video: I rarely watch movies, but I will have to give Shark007's codec pack a try.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

I just switched (hopefully temporarily) from using (for video) MPC-HC x64 w. AC3 Filter, to MPC-HC x86 with Shark's W7 codecs, + CoreAVC Pro + AC3 Filter and am greatly enjoying how easy it now is to tweak things so I can play various files types with the filters/codecs that work best for me. Very impressed with Sharks settings tool. Makes a complex thing much easier to deal with (and tweak). And CoreAVC Pro seems pretty awesome for the H264 stuff. Looking forward to when they release their x64 version so I can go back to using MPC-HC x64.
