Tks..Top of line player


poor, can`t load additional audio file watching the movies, even MPC does that


vlc is good but once check bsplayer alsso,,,it may be shareware but video quality is superior than vlc even u expand da picture size


Does it now remember custom equilizer settings?
It’s really irritating to set equilizer every time you open it…
Otherwise a great player!


KMPlayer is the best. Freeware with more than shareware quality!!!!!!


Very good and very light player


I really Like this player Very Light, Nice Quality, and make sense user friendly. Actually KM player is great but the new one from the Same Developer “POT PLaye”r is the ultimate. Killer Quality


VLC can fix audio synch and also can set to fullscreen where wmp wont.


ie fullscreen 16×9 from a 4×3 video


PotPlayer is way better than this one. I could not make it play subtitles no matter I did: codecs, updates, etc.


PotPlayer N.1 now


VLC has nightly builds. These builds will have the latest security fixes and git updates.
