The KMPlayer is a versatile media player which can cover various types of container format such as VCD, DVD, AVI, MKV, Ogg Theora, OGM, 3GP, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, and QuickTime among others. It handles a wide range of subtitles and allows you to capture audio, video, and screenshots in many ways. The player provides both internal and external filters with a fully controlled environment in terms of connections to other splitters, decoders, audio/video transform filters and renderers without grappling with the DirectShow merit system. Internal filters are not registered to user's system to keep it from being messed up with system filters. The KMPlayer includes almost all the essential decoders required for media playback. Furthermore, to get beyond the limitation of internal decoders, the external ones such as commercial h.264 decoders or cyberlink/intervideo audio decoders can be specified, so that KMP works optimally by the users' own customization.

So what's the big diference betwene VLC, MPC, KMP and Pot Player?

At least u can install all of them and find out what they are.
One of them is windows frame and i hate players without windows frame

this is pretty much obsolete when the original dev of this switched over to 'Pot Player' (i.e. )

Potplayer has some really good options, but is missing some of KMPlayer's better ones. Still one of the best out there though.

one of my biggest arguments against The KMPlayer, especially for those of us with slower CPU's, is it does not have hardware accelerated h264 video (the last i checked) which is a big deal.

Pot Player on the other hand supports it out of the box which keeps CPU use quite low which is around 5percent on my AMD Athlon X2 CPU. without that it can shoot up to 30-40percent or so for 720p and 1080p (60+ percent) has issues with audio/video sync which goes away once the GPU is doing nearly all of the work

so basically those of us with slower dual core's or single core CPU's the hardware acceleration of h264 video is a must especially when you get into 1080p territory.

p.s. even the popular 'VLC Player' does not have hardware acceleration on by default but you can turn it on in it's settings. MPC-HC supports hardware acceleration out of the box which is good but i just prefer the overall interface/feel of Pot Player over those.
