Media Player Classic Home Cinema is a comprehensive open source audio and video player that is capable of playing a myriad of formats. It also incorporates a host of features that make it one of the better programs of its type.
One of its greatest strengths is how smooth it is. It plays videos smoothly on not-so-powerful devices, even at high resolutions. In fact, MPC-HC (its abbreviated name) is able to play large files with resolutions of 1080p with virtually no cuts or buffering delays.
Media Player Classic Home Cinema includes all kinds of video decoders including H.264 and VC-1 with support for DXVA and Direct Video Acceleration technology. It is capable of playing DVD or BluRay discs, audio CDs, and even DVB TV signals, not to mention countless additional options, such as support and customization of subtitles or even automatic internet searches for subtitles for whatever you are already playing.
Without a doubt, when choosing a comprehensive multimedia player, Media Player Classic is one of the best options. Its extensive customization options, speed, and compatibility make it a must-have on any Windows computer.
