Ever since the invent of the World Wide Web, the entertainment industry has been redefined in an extravagant way and the major portion of the pie is being taken by the multimedia industry. As an avid media lover, I have always cherished my movie and music collection and was rejoiced with the introduction of cloud computing. When it comes to watching or listening to my favorite media files, I used to hate it whenever I had to switch between programs to play different types of media files and those frequent software crashes are still annoying. I have come a long way using MPC-HC after trying my hands on Windows Media Player, Real-time Player, VLC Player. etc.
MPC-HC proved to be just the thing a media lover would expect it to be. It is an all-rounder multimedia player that supports almost all types of media files. It is extremely light weight as well and doesn’t prompt you to download extra codec to support various file types. It runs smoothly on media file types without a lag and with really good quality. The look and feel of user interface is very impressive with no toolbars and advertisements to occupy the viewer’s screen. And it is 100% spyware/malware free.
MPC HC being an open source media player and it could be customized easily with its wide array of options. It is developed in C++ and maintained by a community of developers under GNU General Public License. It is available for windows in 32 bit and 64 bit configurations.
It supports subtitles, can play Audio CDs, VCDs, DVDs, and can be used for Digital Video Broadcasting. It also supports the video format or recording over TV tuners.
The only downside that I could zero in on was that MPC-HC does not support live streaming and lacks the facility for a cloud storage. Except these two factors, MPC-HC is amazing compact allround media player that works seemlessly smooth with various types of media files. Since it is so versatlie, it could be customized to a great extent to suit the user‘s taste and needs. Personally I use K-lite codec pack, as it allows access to more formats and adds to customizations with various codecs you can use depending on your PC configuration.
