The best thing you guys can do if you aren’t really great with computers and codec config is to download k-lite codec pack.
just google it, its all over. download any of them, they will all work.
you get media player classic with it, which rivals VLC in usefulness...imo.
Could just get KMPlayer along with Real alt. lite and quicktime lite....
The player has more configuration options than the two mentioned players and allows for one to not have to install a messy codec pack.
NOTE: K-Lite codec pack comes with Real alt. lite and quicktime lite.
The best video player"S” are :
1) The Kmplayer ... many supported formats/options/menus/nice interface
2) VLC ... many supported formats/supports broken files/lack of menu options and functions
3) MPC ... many supported formats/supports broken files* may crash ocasionally/nice classic skin
Note that BSPlayer or Cyberlink Powerdvd dont match the criteria of being Best Media Player because they aren’t FREE !!
I have trouble playing mkv video files.I even downloaded K-Lite Codec Pack. The video cannot play smoothly. The timing for the video and the audio doesn’t match. Please help!!!
PS:I am currently using Media Player Classic.
MPCSTAR player..is the ultimate & best video player ...THAN.. VLC player...and other players..when compared to video quality..and..sound..quality
U can move forward or backward..just use..ARROW KEYS...It moves 5 seconds.
In search of the best video player - 2010 Digital Video Showdown
There is little doubt that mpeg has become the standard video format on the net and home video.
Waaay back (2002) when this app’s video capabilities were being added; Mpeg gave you the ability to start and stop play anywhere in a clip. For that reason Mpg format became the focus. (Avi Wmv and Vob) videos do play.
When developing custom software; you can suit yourself and that’s just what this beauty does. The program has features the others will be working on for years.
The 'golf' option plays each short video clip then its' last 3 seconds (the swing) in slow motion. Within 10 minutes of leaving the golf course the nearly 200 video clips (from 2 camcorders) are up and playing on the clubhouse screen. No software does it better or faster than that. None.
A similar feature for wild wild party video gigs. The Profanity Delay / Censorship option 'XXX' prevents the final 3 seconds of video from playing. Someone says something nasty. Shut off recording. Someone does something illegal shut off recording etc etc.
By creating a 'mini' video (2secs or less) as the golfers approach the tee; a 'group break' record is created. Now the play back can be done 'random by foursome'. OR for Real Estate - shoot a mini clip outside the house and 5 or 6 from inside and have videos play 'random by property' in the office window.
This player can play a random segment in a random video then freeze for 4 seconds on the last frame as a screen saver!!! If you have lots of video you’ll want random.
Swamp Video has a number of other great video features. The above are the key ones the competition doesn’t have.
No matter how fantastic each Video format may be; MPEG or otherwise. They are nothing without great video playback capabilities. Swamp video is by far the greatest mpeg player to date.
The source code and most recent executable is FREELY available.
Time-line playback makes doing video easy and fast. No video editing - No Joining videos - No Splitting videos.
