Media Player Classic [Home Cinema] 1.0.10.0

Media Player Classic looks just like Windows Media Player 6.4, but has many additional features. It has a built in DVD player with real-time zoom, support for AVI subtitles, QuickTime and RealVideo support (requires QuickTime and/or Real Player); built-in MPEG2/SVCD/DVD codec.

Not quite. VLC has more features and it has more native supports for codecs (included libraries.) And I use Media Player Classic. (at home -- at work I use VLC.) Why? Faster, more subtitle support (thus it's totally compatible with the http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?act=announce&f=12&id=11 Mega Codec pack). I was debating over who would win in a war, and I'd declare a tie.

Agreed KMplayer is the best. VLC does NOT have better subtitle support as mentioned above (it's actually very bad, even with vobsub) and yea the interface is even uglier than MPC.

You're supposed to be watching to video not the GUI.

They're too busy whining to concentrate on watching anything other than nitpicking about the GUI. *shrug*

Don't hate because we dislike your favorite program. GUI doesn't mean EVERYTHING, but it means something. Even when playing a video you MUST look at it, what if you wanted to hit the pause button? Or select a different audio or subtitle track? Yea go be a smartass somewhere else.

I just found out about 10 minutes ago that Media Player Classic has two vulnerabilities. Then I check Neowin to see this "Home Cinema" edition, in which both vulnerabilities have been fixed.

although i really love media player classic on windows, i really wouldn't ever wanna see a GUI like that in my living-room.
sorry, thumbs down.

"Support for EVR (Enhanced Video Renderer) :
EVR is a new video renderer available with Windows Vista. It could be used on Windows XP if .Net Framework 3.0 is installed. MPC support two type of EVR :
* EVR : video is displayer by Microsoft presenter. Internal subtitles, Pixels Shaders, and D3D fullscreen are not supported with this version
* EVR custom presenter : the rendering part is made by MPC, almost the same way it's done with VMR9 renderless. Internal subtitles, Pixels Shaders and D3D fullscreen options are working in this mode."
Quote from the Home Cinema website; this is the major feature the original version doesn't have. The original MPC, now 6.4.9.1, is still being updated by "clsid", one of the developers still working on FFDSHOW TRYOUTS:
http://ffdshow-tryout.sourceforge.net/

It's the official MPC with some modifications and a bunch of patches applied to it. The original developer stopped working on MPC a long time ago.

yah but its still a WELCOME spin off imo bangbang hehe, don't you agree? wouldnt anyone?

<3 MPC the best video software ever
