If you want a media player that is fast and can easily play your videos as well as audio on your PC, then Media Player Classic is what you need. This application enables you to watch your favorite movies and video clips. Plus, you can also listen to your favorite music. It supports several formats including FLV, WAV, MP3, MPEG and many more. What I like about this media player is that it doesn’t need any installation because it comes as an executable file. You can simply store it in your USB and use it anywhere you want. I find its interface very simple and straightforward. It has an old-school look that is similar to the classic Windows media player. Moreover, I like that this app also supports subtitles for movies. Just search the subtitle you need in the Subtitle Database feature and it will automatically forward you to a link where the subtitle file is available. Overall, Media Player Classic contains a variety of potent tools, making it a practical and reliable application.


  • It has a simple interface
  • It supports different media formats

Simple yet Very Powerful Media Player That Can Give you a Great Playback Experience

Media Player Classic is a simple version of a media player but on the other hand, it is more enhanced. Media Player Classic has a pretty basic user interface and with tons of codecs that you really need to be able to play different video files. Moreover, it has a faster response time. This program is a powerful tool with an old-fashioned interface that gives you an improved playback experience. This application can also play some DVDs. But in order to do so, you must first have external decoders to enable to play them. At the same time, it can also play RealMedia files, but make sure that the Realplayer One is installed in your computer. One of the best features of this application is the ability to modify the filters while you are playing your selected video. In summary, Media Player Classic is a simple media player but for me, it is one of the best and most reliable software I have used. It is definitely worth checking.

This is a media player for Microsoft windows that supports many file types which are; MPEG-1, MPEG 2 and MPEG 4 playback, direct shows, Realplayer and QuickTime components. Playback and recording of television has been made possible on MPC so long as you have a TV tuner. It also supports matroska which is a file format that holds more than one media in a single file and ogg containers which is simply an open container format that ensures efficient streaming and changing of high quality multimedia files.

The player bears a simple and basic interface that any user can find simple to use, it is mostly self-explanatory. On the upper side of the interface there five basic function provisions each with a drop down menu that will enable a user to do all the tasks provided by the player from simple one like opening a media file from any destination in the computer, to complex ones like audio switching and change settings. The function buttons are; File, view, play, Navigate, Favorites, and help designed to help the users when they are stranded whilst using the player. On the lower part of the interface are basic buttons; play, pause, stop, skip forward or backwards and the volume button.

I can attest that this player serves as the last resort when it comes to media files that won't play on other media players. If a media file doesn't play on MPC then it is most likely will not do so on any other player. This simply means that this player is powerful player. It is actually small in size hence doesn’t consume a lot of space on the users machine.

  • IT supports many file formats.


  • It faces competition from other media players.
