Hey, everybody. I've been consistently frustrated in finding an intelligently-minimalist, modular video player with a good (or at the very least, existent) community. The closest I've come is the Fusion player (http://fusionmedia.org/), which I'm reasonably happy with, but I'm wondering what else is out there. I gave the 1337 player a shot, but my video card doesn't like DirectX 9 (neither do I, for that matter). What are people using that doesn't have the bloat typical of video players?

you should try M-Player Classic! It's pretty compact and very useful.

I only use ZoomPlayer.
It's feature rich without being bloated.

The problem/difference to fb2k is, that most of these players use DirectShow, so they should be equally fast/good looking etc. A mediaplayer which would use its own PlugIn system (with decoders from the ffmpeg project) would probably kick ass.

I agree... but ATM, I haven't found a player like that. So I use MPC/ZoomPlayer for the time being.

Hmm, doesn't Zoom Player import msdxm.ocx? (aka the Media Player 6.x control)

The few players, which don't rely on DirectShow (for decoding), are ports of Linux players like VLC or MPlayer. They all use code from ffmpeg to some extend so speed/quality should not vary much.

I haven't really tested many because zoomplayer has always worked so well for me. It's updated quite regularly as well.

zoomplayer works for me. I don't need anything fancy, though the aspect ratio tweaks are nice for the odd fucked divx or when I want to go to the trouble of changing my sony 27" into pseudo-16/9 mode.

Honestly most of the time I just use wmp 6.2. Does what its supposed to do just fine.

Ahh, I had forgotten about VLC... I think I'll give it a second look and see if it suits my needs. Thanks for reminding me! smile.gif

i only can say, that the best player under windows - i've ever seen, was the VLC (www.videolan.org) port for windows.

under linux there are three really good players, the mplayer (www.mplayerhq.hu), xine (xine.sf.net) and again the VLC (www.videolan.org)

that's all wink.gif

The version of Media Player Classic linked to in one of the first posts is very old, new versions can be downloaded from:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli/
It's an excellent player, but I wouldn't compare it to Foobar2000, it hardly has any features to organize your collection or customize the player in any way. But if you just need something to play (video) files, then mplayerc is great.
It comes with a lot of filters built-in btw. I don't see the problem with DirectShow though, except perhaps for the inconvenience of having to install filters for the formats you want to decode (but that would be true for a custom plugin system too).

I've used KMPlayer and PotPlayer for years, I used to love them.

KMPlayer sold and it's full of ads. PotPlayer doesn't exit the Korean cage, some autoupdates reset everything back to Korean language and I don't want to use a software that doesn't even update properly. I mainly use and test for business as well, I like to use what I give to customers.

I've never liked VLC, it's too heavy for my use maybe. SPlayer is ok.

MPC-HC is the best one.
