This is no longer Freeware it's Adware - Go for VLC player which is free & don't have associated junk added.

Now bundled with AVG software, installs without asking.
Garbage.
...
EDIT : There IS the option to install or not AVG software, checked to install by default, sneaky at the end as always, and I had missed it. Sneaky is not dishonest, so I'll have to correct my revue for a player which remains in itself a very good one.

GOM was a tiny good player !
A nag screen has now killed it all :-(
Impossible to deactivate :-(
I will go back to VLC Media Player which is still free, is much more powerful but heavier and using more resources.
VLC has got a much better buffer too => no slowdown while GOM was slowing lagging when moving forward into some films.
Bye GOM...

Going downhill: As below it try's to add a tool-bar & gives ads after each use, I would prefer the option to purchase rather than have crap added to my PC - Looking elsewhere now ~

GOM Player is now Ad-Ware both on installation & in usage - Therefore no longer Freeware ~

BEWARE! : this new GOM Player ver. 2.1.40.5106 proposes in a very sneaky manner to install ASK tool-bar. BEWARE !
I like and use this player, one minus for the crap associated to it.

My favorite media player. I don't see image quality issues whatsoever - GOM along with AIMP for audio & you wont go far wrong.

If you have issues with sound I would look elsewhere on your system as I use a high quality external DAC with dedicated audiophile British amp & sound on any video including HD is pretty good.

If you want alternatives try S Player or KM Player:

I suppose we are spoiled for choice as there are 3 excellent free players rather than the dreadful WMP.

GOM IMHO is a great program.

I see a lot of people commenting on features but since I use foobar for my audio, something like this would be used for video only.

With that said, both this and KMplayer have something in common, average image quality. They're better than that terrible VLC but they really can't reproduce the same quality that BSplayer and WMP Classic Home Cinema do, and for me, that's the feature that is most important

Hi,
This great to know about the best about GOM where it is a freeware media player that supports many features for advanced users who desire to watch video files at the best quality.
I think it will work for me..
Thanks ..

I was a long time (2 or 3 years) user of GOM. Sadly I started to encounter issues with playback (esp HD), low sound output and playing some files.
Yet again I tried all the likely contenders on my Win7 setup. KMPlayer did cause me some heartache with its complex settings, but I went back to default and just tweaked a couple of preferences. It is the outstanding player available.
I think WMP is a good player - I just don't like to use it and it lacks the capture features I demand. I tried this new GOM. It plays really well and is as feature rich as ever. I'm struggling to get sound working properly and I just can't be bothered fiddling. You may have better mileage.
For now KMP is a winner at every level, it works out of the box and has advanced DVD and TV skills too.
GOM has always had a problem interacting with its users, queries and bugs are just not addressed. KMP wins on this level as well.

This has been a pretty good media player, and it hasn't failed me at all. Way better than KMPlayer, WMP 12, or VLC. Haven't discovered any kind of bugs and it works well for playing back most, if not all, video and audio files. Pretty much easy to configure Gom Player to your liking, if you know what you're doing. If not, it's not hard to figure it out.

Unlike VLC or other media players I've seen, GOM lets you do some pretty cool stuff, such as configuring it to use a Winamp DSP plugin, in case you wanna tweak the audio or give it a boost, depending on the plugin you use with it. It can also take snapshots of what you watch, which I don't do often, but it's a nice feature. You can change the skin of GOM as well, in case you want it to have a different look.

Keep in mind, for instance, KMPlayer can do what GOM Player does, but based on past experience, KMPlayer does have problems sticking with certain configuration settings, such as the codecs you select to play certain audio and/or video files. It can also be a bit slow to start, which is why I stopped using this particular player.

GOM is a really good choice for a media player and I love using it. Doesn't crash, isn't full of bugs, and starts up quick, which is what a good media player should do. I don't plan on changing media players any time soon. The guys in charge of VLC player could learn a thing or two from GOM Player. Just a personal thought.

And| is typing rubbish. Complete FUD.
Just check with a decent firewall. The only connection GOM make, if you want to, is an auto update which can be switched off.

And the Ask toolbar is optional. Just don't click Next like an idiot when installing.

Just found out this piece of software is a gateway for GOM TV. What you watch, koreans might be watching on GOM TV.

Hacker ware.

Use to love this player but KMPlayer and ALShow are also very relaxed, I prefer ALShow because it does everything I want with smoothness.
Gomplayer isnt crap, it is just what you prefer but be carefull with installing and uncheck Ask Toolbar
