Publisher's Description

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.

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

Excellent software and works great, does as it says it will do, I have no problems with this at all.

Went back to MPC 1.6.2. Later versions have no center channel sound. Couldn't find an option to set to 2.1 stereo. Guess the new folks at MPC assume everyone has 5.1 theater speakers for their rig.

Once the original developer left, versions since 1.6.2 have been bells, whistles and tinkering more than anything else.

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.

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.

@TROLL: What a "nice" video file has been troubling you that you just have simply installed more than 20 players on your system? That's weird, isn't it?

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema bundled with K-Lite Codec Pack works perfectly for me every time.

Great lite player.
I just don't know why they keep writing that empty key to the registry even when running it in portable mode, I contacted them and they lied about fixing it.

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.
