Hi all,

I was using media player classic, but now I'm using VLC media player. What I like about it is that there is no need to add extra codecs like mpc, but it dosen't seem to play all media types, and the playlist dosen't join to the media player (and this bugs me). So does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks

Hi amnesia, hope I am not too late.

Rather than giving you a long list of media players, I think it's better for you to check these links (I am pretty sure they would be useful):

Hope that helps.

Thanks, I actually went to gizmos the other day. Currently using The KM Player. It's like MPC and VLC merged into one.

if anyone else is interested in trying it, here is the lastest version

The link at Gizmos is for an older version.

I tried GOM, but it wouldn't play a couple of files, and then i t didn't want to play a DVD, so I gave up on it.

Odd… it plays everything for me. Then again that may be because I have all the codecs :D.

One thing you may want to try is first download and install CCCP or Shark007 codec packs. Then try using any media player and see if you still have problems.
