Top Ten PC Video Players

Which type of media players we use to play our video files?

The Top TenXW


I've used vlc since I can't remember when, no complaint until lately when it couldn't play a movies smoothly. But these did not take its credits away.

VLC is the best video player ever, it is very easy to use and shows videos in high quality. It can play any kind of videos. It is my favourite video player

This is the best video player ever... It can play like al video formats man... King of video players man...

Best video player I have experienced... Very user friendly. Space bar for Pause and play... Right ^^ Left keys to forward ^^ backward... Trust me.. Use it

Full of so many functions if you want more than just play pause and stop.

For users that want more just pressing play in order to see a movie.
Synchronize subtitles, change contrast, quality, movie speed.
Lots of shortcut key to use especially if you have a wireless keyboard.

It's a best video player for windows.

Great for automatic find for sub-titles. Great for watching in any frame size controlled by mouse scroll and is free.

I use this one, it has many great options and is very practicable - MatrixGuy

I'm using it for at least 6 years and it's still the best player around. It also have integrated subtitles downloader. Perfect!

Whats amazing player and its picture quality is best...

4Windows Media Player

Why do people looks for compicated programes when this very easy to use program plays it all? - BigZ

The reason why it's down on the 5th even though it is a default player is that it does not support that much formats.

Only this video player can play 4k resolution video flawlessly. on other video player like vlc its lags a lot

Build in software. I love it.

5PowerDvD player

It upscales dvds to amazing quality. Works best with graphics card parallel processing. And the sound quality is 10/10 with use of hi fidelity headphones.

The best movie experience can be in Power DVD only and that too in cinema mode. It supports all formats and provides best controls that one can get.
Hats off to powerDVD...

Its very cool player with suitable system in smart playeing videos

Awesome I used it before!

6GOM Player

Thank's to GOM player. I can watch know the movie that I download try it...

I had all of above programs, and can safely say that Gom is best of the best, simply he never let me down, I don't know for 'unknown format' of some video since I installed this amazing software. All praise of me for Gom player, absolutely better than BS player and it goes 'shoulder to shoulder' with VLC. Download this player and you will not regret. Has quality, has performance! *11 of 10*

I love it's shortcuts and best quality of subtitles ever the best quality of video streaming without any pixelizetion, very preferable for me I chose it as best player for high quality videos

It is a best player in the world for me. I vote it 11 out of 10.

Awesome for bluray never reduces quality never slows down and no fog effect like in vlc has all codecs it's simply easy to use

The best ever, you can play any format of a video it will not disappoint your

It has the best colour balance of all players, included GOM and VLC. If you click on the taskbar hidden icons arrow (Windows 7, to the right of the taskbar) and then you click on icons for ffdshow audio or video a variety of tools are available for enhancing sound, including a volume booster, a nice array of filters for bad audio and like 30 or 40 independent apps that allows you to make wonders with otherwise unusable videos. This is also the player with lower memory usage and fastest start,

Good and fast, but doesn't look that good.

I like KLC for pause/play by clicking feature, and fast loading than others.
Great feature, do not like only its sound intensity quality.

Agreed! I've been using RealPlayer for years and love all it offers and its ease in use. It's basically an all in one media player that accommodates all popular media and video formats. I'm actually surprised to not see it make your list.

RealPlayer is super easy to use. It's just one click to download any video I'm watching. I love it!
