lightweight media player with built-in codecs Media Player Classic Home Cinema is a lightweight, open source media player that supports all common video, audio and image file formats available as well as video playback. The program looks just like the old Windows Media Player v6.4, but comes with many additional features, including built-in codecs, enhanced rendering (EVR), subtitles, TV playback and recording (with installed TV tuner), and more. In order to reduce CPU usage dramatically. MPC-HC includes an embedded video decoder decode x.264, H.264 and VC-1 with hardly any CPU time required. Other features include native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats, H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, OSD (On Screen Display), multi-monitor configuration options and more. Copyright

It's what I use 5 stars by gimpguy Aug 19, 2012 (Read all my 1158 reviews)
I've used this for some time over any current media player. It actually plays things without the bloat or hassle. Between this and VLC, no need for anything more. showShow review details
Simple and effective 5 stars by reco388 May 29, 2012
MPC-HC has them all: it's very simple, lightweight, straightforward, no-nonsense player that runs even on "ancient" PC. Why bother using "whale"-type players when you can just use this tiny "sportive" gem? I am using it since 2008, and no other player has taken it's place in my PC. showShow review details
Needs DirectX 9 3 stars by Rob-vG Feb 21, 2012 (Read all my 3 reviews)
Media Player Classic has the appearance of Windows Media Player 6.4. And used to handle more formats than its Microsoft counterpart. In my view the program doesn't seem fully mature. If you have a fairly new system with DirectX 10 or 11, MPC-HC insists on installing DirectX 9. I hope in time this dependency will be solved, to make MPC a true small program capable of great things. showShow review details
