Media Player Classic
is an audio and video player for Windows that looks like Windows Media Player 6.4, but works a bit more like all-in-one media application VLC
. Each application is open source, and each can handle almost any audio or video file you throw at it. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement.
Media Player Classic Home Cinema Edition takes the basic version of MPC and adds a few extra features, including:
- Support for additional decoders, including H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support
- Improved support for Windows Vista, including a 64 bit release
- Translation into additional languages
The media player takes up just a few megabytes and doesn't require installation, so you can throw it on a USB flash drive and carry it around with you.
