Hey whs,

I saw an article just yesterday about VLC. I think I'll d/l it and check it out. You've had good experiences with it I take it.

Not that I've had any bad experiences with GOM, I enjoy it, but I'm curious about the extras VLC has.

It sounds like it has a lot of features like GOM, so I'll check it out sometime.

WMP 12. As an overall audio/video solution that comes integrated, it does the job very well and with the Shark 007 Codec Pack, it plays pretty much anything I throw at it.

Media Player Classic
Real Player
VLC

I use MPC for all my videos . (cause its faster than VLC, and has the "open each video in a new player" feature)

Real Player to play audios only . (cause i like its interface more than any other good audio player)

VLC as a back up player . (it can repair and play corrupted videos that MPC won't play)

I would now say Media Player Classic overall is the best player.

KMplayer & Gomplayer are nice too

VLC is good backup player because it plays everything out of the box but not the best codec for x264.
