Media Player Classic - Home Cinema is a Media Player Classic mod design for homecinema usage.

Media Player Classic is an extremely light-weight media player for Windows. It looks just like Windows Media Player v6.4, but has many additional features. It has a built in DVD player with real-time zoom, support for AVI subtitles, QuickTime and RealVideo support (requires QuickTime and/or Real Player), and lots more.

    Reviewing 1.7.11 (Mar 15, 2017)

    This hasn't been updated on SourceForge for a couple versions now. I like to get the standalone filters to go with the player but all that's available now is for version 1.7.9 along with its accompanying older version player. This new version player also no longer plays well with Shark007's codecs, which I use on my home theater system PC. The player now crashes on DVD movie play right off the bat and the AC3 audio on any video file has a funny noise that pops up in the background off and on, and may or not be related to the Shark007 codecs package install. I have now switched to MPC-BE instead, which works well with Shark007 codecs. The only thing this player has going for it now is the subtitle download capabilities, of which MPC-BE sorely lacks, so I keep MPC-HC on hand just in case I need to download a subtitle file for a movie if needed, although I could just do that directly online to Subscene, Subscene has never failed to provide a subtitle file for a movie, especially for foreign language parts only.

    Unless you're using K-lite codec pack, look elsewhere for a player. As mentioned above, MC-BE works well, and VLC payer is another option, that has most all the internal codecs you would most likely need.

    3 stars, but only being that it could work well with K-lite codec pack, a codec pack I personally don't care to use

    Still the best from the original media player classic that saw off the disastrous ad riddle real player to where we are today, this is the best.

    Reviewing Beta (Jul 11, 2013)

    Even though I have personally switched to the MPlayer/SMPlayer combo, I give this player 4 stars. Installed with the Mega Codec Pack it should play almost anything, if not everything. The only drawback for me is that I cannot use this player to view content on an HDTV via s-video cable. Screen is blank, only volume. I now use SMPlayer as my default player to achieve this. QuickTime can do it too, but QuickTime Player is very limited nowadays.

    I use VLC for PC viewing of media. Am I missing something by not using MPC? The only thing is that VLC is not available in 64bit yet and I don't feel like downloading every codec to play a certain file with MPC. Someone please enlighten me about this, Thanks for any info. I give it 5 stars cause it has always been a favorite of everyone but I have never used it except back in the days of Windows 95.

    Mr. Flemens. 99% of the Windows users use Windows XP or 7 and you give this extraordinarily stable and great player one star because it supposedly crashed your Windows 8? That's rather childish, isn't it?

    I have never seen MPC crash any OS that I installed, and if I ever encounter that, I will first blame the bad drivers, because that sounds rather logical to me.

    User applications cannot crash an OS, if they do - you have problems with your OS.

    Impressive program.
    To get 5 stars it needs to be able to play iso-files.

    Don't know what people with program issues are talking about. On my Win7 64bit system there are no issues with this player what so ever.

    Fine tune the settings and you'll have excellent video quality. Combine with K-Lite's 64bit codec pack for increased flexibility.

    MPC-HC was a good player up to version 1.5.xx.
    Something changed, couple of months ago: all the last releases are full of bugs, real beta's or even alpha's.
    Stay away of all 1.6.x.x
