Media Player Classic For Windows (32/64 bit)

Media Player Classic

Media Player Classic is an improved edition of the classic Windows Media Player 6.4 with the ability to play QuickTime and Real Player files. Unlike KMPlayer it doesn’t have the facility to identify codecs with built in logic but with proper codecs installed in the system it will be perfect for use. It has sound filters and playlist options.

A good thing about installing Media Player Classic is that it does not need to be installed. You can just copy the 2.1 MB setup file to any folder you wish and run it from there, or create a shortcut to it on your Desktop or Launch bar. It’s a portable application. However if you want to push the functionalities of Media Player Classic, you will have to install a codec pack for it to run every format available. Even while playing the QuickTime and Real Player files, these applications need to be installed in the system.

It works on all versions of Windows, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7. The different thing about this latest version is the added support for Ogg Theora and AC3.

Some codec packs such as K-Lite Mega Codec Pack Full might offer the option to install Media Player Classic, skip that because then you’ll be having two versions of the player in your system.

The interface of Media Player Classic is very much like the conventional Windows Media Player's older versions. So there are no problems in understanding the basic functionalities. If you have been using Windows Media Player for long, then it will not be difficult to handle. New users possibly will have a tough time getting into the essential features. Many of the options are accessible through the top menu or by right-clicking in the main window.

I will not call the Media Player Classic's interface very modern or stylish because as the name says it’s a very retro, old school style player with no catchy gimmicks to it.
