BSPlayer is easiest and cleariest.

Really, no mention of MPC-HC? Granted in order to get the best out of it you need to fiddle with it a lot and add a lot of external filters, but it's highly worth it and it's still probably just as good as these 5 without doing so.

It's really surprising, the omission of MPC-HC, because it's almost synonymous with anime fansub playback - the recommended player by pretty much every group due to the ability to customize your filters in order to be compliant and efficient with the latest encoding and subtitle rendering.

MPC-HC is the best player by far once properly configured for the latest media. It's not hard to do either. Just look up a Hi10P playback guide.

K-lite media player, pros use it and it supports every format out there with every single codec available except Apple Prores codec and DNxHD

Any pc based video editor/dit or whatever video specialist will have something to do with K-lite

K-lite is just a codec pack, isn't it? The player in that codec pack is MPC player.

CCCP is better than k-lite but a Hi10P optimized install of MPC-HC is best.

pandehz1457d ago (Edited 1457d ago )

Yea MPC-HC is basically k-lite, im just using the old name when they bundled it together into the player.

Its still bundled together but the name wont show as K-Lite Media Player

And yea it is the bestest :D

splash player IS one if not the best of all the media players I tried for playing High Quality stuff .
please try it , then try something else and see the picture deference .

VLC sucks. It's a stuttery resource hog and the quality is mediocre at best. It and it's ilk are for total noobs.
