KMPlayer 3.8.0.117

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.

What's new in KMPlayer 3.8.0.117:

  • Support playing J2J method modulated files.
  • Support Drag & Drop files IN Zip.
  • Changed extended links at Window 8 & UAC.

They ruined it after 3.6.0.87.

Agree, but the immediately preceding version (think it was .113) was the real shocker for me given how overrun with ads it was and made me finally switch. PotPlayer is not perfect either - it spies on what users are watching and sends the information back home to its masters in Korea.

You're right and it's the best player I've used. Only with the simplicity, native windows UI, integrated LAV filters and build with the latest MSVC 2013 MPC-HC could compare it. Unfortunately Potplayer offers hideous default skin and weird settings that a non tech-savvy guy would receive the full benefits; and that's why because a stupid guy at Videohelp.com manages these custom builds: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/PotPlayer

So, my default player is MPC-HC x64.

A well-configured MPC-HC or MPC-BE is great, but if you think getting there (installing and configuring all the codecs, filters and player settings properly) is less confusing for a non tech-savvy person then you're sadly mistaken. Some people choose to use pre-configured versions bundled with codec packs, but I stay away from these packs like the plague.

i like players without skins like mpc and foobar2000, but one annoying problem i have with mpc (otherwise i would be using it) is that when i skip with the arrows, the movie pauses for tiny moment and then goes back to playing and its really annoying for me, like a game-breaker

The last time I used MPC (I think it was MPC-BE) I didn't have this problem, so might be a bug that's been fixed, or perhaps one in MPC-HC if you used that, or perhaps some problem with your configuration.

Edit: It might have something to do with settings related to keyframe jumping. If something like that's turned on then wherever you jump to the player has to figure out which is the nearest keyframe and jump to that instead, and the delay might get amplified by other things such as a slow drive, state of the file's index and so on.
