NO LONGER DEVELOPED
Media Player Classic looks just like Windows Media Player 6.4, but has many additional features. It has a built in DVD player with real-time zoom, support for AVI subtitles, QuickTime and RealVideo support (requires QuickTime and/or Real Player), built-in MPEG2/SVCD/DVD codec. No longer developed so use instead MPC-HC or MPC-BE.

MPC and MPC-HC are my favourite media players.
Using them about 6 years i think!

But this player may not be good for newbies, as sometimes some settings should be changed for proper playback!

(Yes i use other players too... at home MPC.)
(At work, college use VLC, KMP, GOM)

This is exactly what I was looking for. I downloaded AVS, RealPlayer & Roxio before I found Media Player Classic. I highly recommend it.

"Works better than mplayer2 but when you try and right click on a mpg and open with it cant find the file to play."

This is easy enough to fix.

- open Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types.
- scroll down to MPG (or whatever file extension you want to open using MPC)
- click on Advanced -> New
- in the Acion field, enter: Media Player Classic
- in the Application... field, Browse to mplayerc.exe and select it
- add "%1" to the end, so that in the Application field, it reads like so:
"C:\Program Files\mplayer.exe" "%1"

The %1 represents the file you want to open (eg. movie.mpg), and the quotes around %1 is in case there are spaces in the path/filename (ie. to make it commandline-friendly).

When you right-click on an MPG file, it will now show "Media Player Classic" in the context menu.



"If only it was updated by the author."

You can use Media Player Classic Home Theatre, which is more or less a continuation of this project. MPC-HT is great. It even plays FLVs.

Best video player - ever. Plays every sick and unknown video format. And can be configured to play anything else what can be played if necessary codec is provided. Gives you a lot of free time, because you won't ever need to get any other players.

YES. As you say, add ffdshow and it's the best combo ever with a very light footprint and no installation or registry crap. Microsoft lost the plot long ago with complex undecipherable hard-to-use bloatware (or saw that complexity ensured adding to its bottom line?) ... wish MS stood back and took stock and a leaf out of this crowd's book.

I have looked for a free and simple software for playing video DVDs on my PC for a long time. Media player classic is perfect! Free, only a .exe (zipped, without installation effort) and works without problems. Thanks!

I've just started using this little gem to play those tasty 4.3 or 7gb files with video content you seem to find a lot these days ;).

I use a wireless video transmitter to play them on my TV. With PowerDVD the sound was terrible and video playback seemed choppy as well.

MPC fixed these problems, so I'm quite happy now :)

Wonderful free player. It's my default player for all video files and mp3s. For me it beats WinDVD, WMP, VLC and PowerDVD. It can (hopefully) only get better.

Re: the previous poster's comment about it replaying mpeg files.
Go to options (last item in the View menu or simply press the 'O' key and select playback options. Click on the Play time(s) button and set value to 1.

Nice easy to use video player, which I use a lot.
Excellent free DVD player as well.
The only grumble is that when playing an mpeg from my hard drive, it doesn't stop at the end of the file, it plays it from the beginning again.
Other than that, an excellent piece of freeware.

It's a great player overall.

No have any problem for any files.

Light and robusted.

For Nero(Any)images use Daemon Tools,load Nero(any) image and player with MPC.Too easy.

This doesn't play CDs properly. It cuts off the 1st second or so of each track. Doesn't have rewind either. Instead, the "rewind" knob is some weirdo "slow-motion" effect, which I never need to use!?

Weird multi-media player if you ask me!

This tool absolutely rocks, I have been using it a few weeks and it is my #1 player for video files. Great program!

And to the previous post, there is a way to save your settings. Look a little in the options dialog. You will find a check box that says "Save settings to ini file". Go there and all will be resolved.
Great Progam again!!!
Keep writen' man!

This little program is great. I only started using it recently, but have made it my default media player since the first try. It's just so much quicker to load and load movies than WMP. Has played all formats so far as well.

I have only one small complaint and that is it doesn't retain certain settings after close or even when loading a new movie (such as locking in zoom, etc.). Not a problem, just a minor annoyance, but I can definately live with it. Terrific little player!

Much faster than bloatware Windows MediaPlayer, this is simple and does exactly what is has to do with no frills, and even if something isn't supported just go find the codecs, as long as you have the right codecs it will play anything you throw at it, including xvid and divx 6. Even if its not supported it tells you exactly what data you need and tries to find it for you without the unhelpful crap Windoze player coughs up, or all the useless rubbish we don't need to 'make the player more intuitive'

Uses very little HD space,very powerful tool that supports many files formats,extremely stable and fast loading.
Recommended to use with Quicktime Alternative and Real Alternative.Has a bonus feature of being able to play DVD's.Nice and simple interface.
What more could you want from a media player.
10\10 easily!

Ignore previous comment, Media Player Classic is one of the most powerfull software player. I've been using for several years and is the only player I need. Fast, easy to use, you can navigate precisely along the movie. Is the only player I know which can start a DVD with a double-click on VIDEO_TS.IFO file and this is an important feature if you work a lot with DVDs.

10/10 from me.

"Primitive" would be more like it, e.g. DVD navigation: only the menus & the keyboard know for sure. Seems to apply to internals as well: hung my system playing a garden-variety DVD from a disk directory. I hate having to do chkdsk's, so I put the bits somewhere where they won't hurt anybody any more.

this app worked flawlessly. The one nice thing about this application is that it did not need to be installed. you can just copy the .exe to your desktop and run it from there to watch a movie. Why is this a good thing? well in a corporate environment most machines are locked down to prevent users from installing un-authorized software. No need to worry with this app. NOTE: i've only tried it on winXP sp2.

This little gem just keeps getting better, only been using for less than 12 months but its my only & default player for all popular formats and more.

4 x 10 ratings from me again, and a big thanks to the developers.
