What is the best video player for Windows?

Maksym Hoyda May 14, 2013

I and my friend were disputing what is the best video player. I say that is Gom Player and he says that is VLC. What do you think that is the best video player?

    I find Potplayer is better than VLC. Better playlist interface. However Both Potplayer and VLC can sometimes struggle with large playlists (10,000+). I found that UMplayer can handle large playlists the best but Potplayer is the best overall.

    I've been using The Kmplayer for more than 6 years. It is a bit heavy nowadays bust still plays virtually anything. If you had to rank the 3 of them (GOM and VLC as well), how would you do it?

    VLC is way better than GOM Player.My personal favorite was VLC but now it's DivX Plus.

    I use VLC and media player classic (one that gets installed with codec).

    VLC is the best Video Player for as it can play any video you throws at it. It also works on Linux and Mac.

    Between the mentioned video players, I would choose GOM Player. But my preferred right now is PotPlayer.

    VLC media player is the swiss army knife of media players. It is a must have but it is not necessarily the best. Paid ones like Cyberlink PowerDVD and free ones like Winamp, KM Player etc. are also good. Be sure to check out Tomahawk.

    VLC is best with good support.

    The best video player is the one that "gets the job done". If you are satisfied with GOM then stick with it. All the players have their perks, strengths and weak spots.

    Personally I use MPC-HC with the madVR renderer. It does take some setup and testing but you will get great image quality out of it. One drawback is that madVR can't render all the stuff MPC-HC can play so every now and then I have to switch renderer to playback a file.

    All in all doing something "better" doesn't necessarily mean being the best choice.

    VLC Media Player is undoubtedly the best video player.

    MakeUseOf has an article on top 7 secret features of VLC

    "Best" is a subjective term. VLC. and GOM Player are both excllent without a doubt. VLC is extraordinarily flexible (player, server, converter, multi-interface, multi platform). GOM Player is also a very fine player, arguably with a better default interface/skin. KM Player is also excellent, and some people still swear by Media Player Classic or MPlayer.

    Personally I would choose VLC out of the two.

    VideoLan VLC player is good, but has become resource hungry and some mp4's do not play very well in VLC. Media Player Classic-Home Cinema (MPC-HC) performs and behaves better while giving similar features, functions, and format compatibility. http://mpc-hc.org/

    The other suggested media players are quite good as well, so they may be worth trying out to make sure you find what you like.

    GOM Player vs VLC

    depends i guess which one you like, interface...

    GOM player Codec Finder service that helps you locate missing codecs for formats that aren’t supported by default.

      That depends on the individual. I also root for VLC as the best.
