Winamp 5.61.3133
on 02 April 2011, reviewed by: Dwight


By far the best player/ free converter @24/32bit 192khz! Offers reference quality playback @ 64 bit floating point calculation/ 225db dynamic range with Power FX2 paid plugin (need a robust i series CPU)! I play it over HDMI on my Home Theater to enjoy excellent stereo imaging and high fidelity.

I have compared it with Window media 12, Spider, Nero Mulrimedia Hub 10 etc and found that Winamp 5.62 wins hands down.

Free version does not allow ripping to mp3, high bit HE ACC etc. However, you get free ripping into 320bit LC AAC, 128bit HE AAC, VBR/CBR WMA Pro, FLAC etc

Winamp has loads of customisation/settings right up to the plugin levels and hence make it a audiophile grade player.

i followed C:\WINDOWS\System32\OggDSuninst.exe
and uninstaledl it. it works well now, thanks for info. it helped alot here


K-Lite Codec Pack 7.0.0 Full, Standard and Basic
on 31 March 2011, reviewed by: svizac69


This app has become completely useless for 70% of the people because MPEG-4 encoder (along with 90% of other useful encoders)in FFdshow VFW is GONE! For f@ck sake leave it as an option... I guess You don't want users to do their encodings anymore.

In the last 3 months everybody I know has said farewell to this codec pack because of this single flaw. Good luck with it...and btw, FAREWELL!!

AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) 2.55
on 28 March 2011, reviewed by: Nathan


I really like AutoGK as it makes conversion really easy.It is what I use to make AVI before turning it into MKV.

I sometimes do get the out of sync audio but instead of not using the video I downloaded virtual dub which lets me fix it really quickly.

I also got 'no suitable audio decompresor installed'on VD which I ignore and continue to fix my movie.

It is wonderful that we can use the newest codec.


VLC (VideoLAN Client) 1.1.8
on 26 March 2011, reviewed by: Mike S


I started using VLC about 4 or 5 years ago, when Windows Media Player wouldn't play a lot of the movies I had download,and never looked back.

Version 1.1.4 was real buggy with certain codecs for me but 1.1.8 everything so far is fine. I love the ability to customize so many settings, and the fact it take almost anything I can throw at it.

I donate to this project when ever I can.

Rating 9/10

DVDStyler 1.8.3 rc2
on 26 March 2011, reviewed by: Mike


I use DVDStyler all of the author movies I have downloaded from torrents. Given the flex of this app, I can make them look pretty professional.

I have used avi ,mp4, mp3, mkv, flv, & even srt subtitle files with no problems. On the menus you can use png, jpeg, and ico files for backgrounds and buttons. You can dvds longer by lowering the bit rate, and make slide-shows on the fly.

Really the only complaint I have is when using wide screen movies they are stretched to fit a 16:9 screen and the picture is warped. The best work around is to add black borders to the original video on top & bottom so the ratio stays the same. This should be a built in option.

I rate DVDStyler 9 out of 10


1by1 1.72
on 25 March 2011, reviewed by: Alan


I searched for this kind of file player and tried most of them out there. I found that none of the others could provide the features and ease of use that 1by1 could provide.

I absolutely love not having to create playlists or download some type of propriatary software to enable the playing of the music files I have. I wanted a randomizer to prevent the line up of my music becoming predictable and stale.

This player is by far 100% better than all the BS jukebox / DJ player software apps offered for free or for sale on the internet. Of course there are several improvements that the developers could make to 1by1, but for now the player meets and exceeds my needs in it's current form. I'de like to say thank you to the software developers for creating this software and for offering as freeware!!

They truly understood what was needed in a randomizer player and how using it can totally maximize my enjoyment and listenability of the music which I have collected with pride over the years.

Thank you.

After having this installed I had very few issues, or so I thought. After about 3 months of haveing certain avi files causing Windows Media Player to crash I uninstalled this codec pack and it worked fine. Ironic that a codec is suposed to help files work is messing them up.

My oppionion is that they lumped these codecs together without seeing which ones conflicted. If you're having BEC errors THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

You installed/uninstalled Radlight Player and/or other Radlight Software after reading fake black hat internet propaganda reviews.

Now your system is F@*ked! Gspot tells you it's screwed, but can't do anything to help you, well finally this tool does something.

Stop right now, close all of your other tabs linking to various bullsh@t 'apps' claiming to help you repair codecs and install this one.

This tool actually does something quickly and lets you get back to watching pr0n instead of screwing around with your filters and codecs and reading various articles with 20-step instructions on how register this and test that BS.

Whoever developed this, THANK YOU!!!!

it works well on my windows 7 on power dvd 10 mark II ultra version.


Hi, how did you make it run with PDVD 10 ? I have win 7 x64 and tried the Always load option in DirectVobSub and what it does is:it appears for a very brief period in the notification area of the taskbar and then disappears. Of course, the movie doesnt show any subtitle (its an AVI file with a SUB extension, if it makes any difference).

I have the same problem in PowerDVD 11.Thanks in advance,James.

Just comment again to say I given up playing with its settings and got a bit older copy The KMPlayer CUDA + HAM DXVA from net and now it runs very good even better than I tweak myself. They add CoreAVC/MPC-HC Audio & Video Decoder/Cyberlink Decoder. No Sync issues or anything.

I noticed it however uses 30-50% CPU of my AMD 6 Core compare to official build own settings which only uses 10-15%

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.0.0
on 09 March 2011, reviewed by: Hatem


Very useful pack as usual , but unfortunately Real audio codec (COOK) problem still exists , the reason is obvious the codec is copyrighted and nonfree and this pack is free and still there isn't any alternative libraries .

I tried the solution mentioned in FAQ on my win7 and didn't work , after coping the five dlls and still the same problem playing RMVBs . I think in win7 it's the ***king user privileges issues preventing the mpc-hc from accessing a directory or I should install mpc instead .

And I noticed some lag playing FLVs as well .

keep the god work up and thanks

yes yes i agree,... FLV is kinda laggy and still cant play RMVB file,...but the rest are perfect,...like its name, its a real mega codec !!!

It's good, except for the problem that it does not restore media after you close and open the player. Even though i have it set for it to do so.

It does provide me with media info while it's playing. It enhances my searching for media in my player.

Hi, Im the author of Windows Media Player Plus. Do you still have this problem with the latest version (2.1)? If so, then I suggest that you contact me by e-mail for further troubleshooting.

You can find my e-mail address in Windows Media Player Plus! Settings - About, or on the Windows Media Player Plus! homepage.

Weird player, so much options and doesn't always work at its best.

Example my old 1.7ghz (retired) pc I run all mkv properly up to 720p. Now new AMD 6 core I had issue at beginning with 1080p so I got CoreAVC and keep changing setting until able to more or less properly run 1080p then I checked and noticed after short while SD mkv files goes out of sync! which never happen on old pc.

I ended up deleting Kmplayer registry to forced it to give real default settings before tweaking again for it to run CoreAVC. Now finally looks like SD & HD mkv can run properly without sync or etc issues.

This program takes FOREVER to load blu rays, that is, if it does decide to work and not randomly turn off your laptop's display forcing you to restart until it works. But wait, there's more. On some hdtvs, it will not play the dts audio.

This program is the worst piece of nuts that I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with and I recommend that you look around for superior blu ray software, such as Arcsoft's Total Media Theatre.
