I like the new experimental gpu acceleration. I like any application that takes advantage of the gpu, that's why I will definitely be beta testing the new IE9. That's all, carry on!

I think VLC produces the best video quality. Windows Media Player (for Windows 7) has the best UI and perhaps the best performance (I have some choppy issues with mp4's in VLC). Mainly use VLC as my main player and Media Player as a backup. Not a fan of MPC.

MPC-HC on all PCs except the one with Win7. The new WMP in Win7 simply looks better and performs better. 1. Lower CPU usage on HD content. 2. Recorded TV simply looks better, eg. Don't know what quality settings the TV station is using but if I play with MPC-HC it has motion blur, whereas WMP looks right.

I really miss the feature of MPC-HC, but I can never get quality and performance right. I have looked at many guides that claim it will offload video to GPU but no success in my testing.

WMP 20% cpu usage, MPC-HC around 80%+ usage on HD content.

I pretty much always have VLC as a backup. Also to stream a *.ts as I am recording tv. eg.http://www.bluebit.com.au/

VLC has come along way and I used to use them all the time though I've grown attached to MPC-HC lately. Seems to work a lot smoother than VLC even though I've got a nice system. Also combined with CCC, WMP can play all kinds of videos so I've even less need to use it. Will keep an eye on it though.

+1 for MPC-HC (Media Player Classic - Home Cinema for those that are wondering). I try other media players, but always end up going back to MPC-HC

VLC is finally working on Blu-ray playback which is a very nice addition. I hate Media Player that comes with Windows, and have been a long time fan of VLC. I will be checking out MPC-HC though, never heard of it until it was mentioned here.

Well since i got a dual core (AMD Athlon X2 3600+ (2.0ghz overclocked to 2.4ghz)) recently (so now i can do 1080p if i need to but on my 24" LCD screen on PC there's a minimal difference so i typically prefer 720p to help keep file sizes lower), VLC for some reason stopped the choppy playback when it was doing it just prior to that when i had the single core AMD Athlon64 3500+ CPU.

so basically... 'so far' VLC basically plays back x264 video files fine (no chopper playback) and does not have slider bar issues like it used to have.

p.s. i still prefer 'The KMPlayer' though but at least VLC is a half way decent alternative now. but it's mostly the little things that i like The KMPlayer more than VLC.

It's a shame kmplayer has a hideous UI overall. If it got improved it could be very good.

Last time I checked skins didn't improve it, and some windows, such as the options one can't be changed by them.

pd: kmplayer is a really good player overall, I just can't stand its UI

that's one area i like over VLC myself is the UI (i use the classic one not that newer crap). i also like how you can hit ESC and it instantly minimizes to the taskbar etc etc.
