Media Player Classic (MPC) is an application which resembles Windows Media Player 6.4 in terms of interface and CPU usage, but which comes with a big load of extra features you will definitely enjoy.
Old school aspect and a lot of power under the hood at the same time!

Developed by Gabest, MPC is able to play the most popular video file formats, including FLAC, FLV, QuickTime and RealVideo.

The application benefits from a built-in DVD player with real-time zoom as well.

No compatibility issues will arise due to the MPEG2/SVCD/DVD codec.

MPC takes care of all the aspects of your movie watching experience, including subtitles. Easily embed subtitles by using the Media Player’s online subtitle database; you will be sent automatically to a page where the subtitle you need is available.

MPC comes with a series of other neat functions, as well.

It can cause your system to take different actions after playback, such as shutting down, logging off, standing by or hibernating. It allows you to jump to a certain frame in your video, which is helpful especially when you want to crop it. Another interesting feature is being able to eliminate all the sound or certain audio tracks. Furthermore, you can modify the filters when playing video files.

Media Player Classic is being constantly improved, and the latest versions have undergone useful changes, such as updates of the common/release.vsprops and of the manifest file, compiling with VS2008, adding the ATL include files and many others.

MPC is the kind of media player that suits both beginners and experts. Its intuitive and simple interface makes it easy to use by anyone, and you can explore its more advanced options, as well.

The application does not lack the assets of a modern media player and it completely satisfies its users.
