It is a multimedia player where you can reproduce and use the main audio and video formats available. For me, the program is pretty good because of its lightweight player and it has good compatibility with different kind of formats. Its simplicity is the major feature of this program, so you will not have any problem to use this software. On the other side, we all know that most of the media players that are available now have really advanced tools and that is not the case of this program because it keeps simple software oriented to all first timer users. Plus, for those people who like to configure everything in their own players, this program can disappoint you since it provides few options only. But, for those who like to play multimedia files will love this one. Also, a good thing here is that despite having few options this program is still very versatile software. High definition formats such as MKV or OGG for audio and video are also supported. All in all, Media Player Classic is a great tool especially for simple tasks.


  • Uncomplicated program that is very easy to use

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.


  • The player bears a simple and basic interface.
  • IT supports many file formats.


  • It faces competition from other media players.
