Media Player Classic Download

Media Player Classic allows us to playback a whole set of available multimedia files (Audio CDs, DVD, Quicktime and RealMedia files, midi and many others). Software has very easy to use interface and full support of DirectX 9.0 technology.

MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 playback
This player is capable of VCD, SVCD and DVD playback, without the need to install any additional software or codecs. Media Player Classic has built-in codecs for MPEG-2 video with support for subtitles and codecs for LPCM, MP2, AC3 and DTS audio. It also contains an improved MPEG splitter that supports subtitles on SVCDs and supports direct playback of VCDs and SVCDs using its VCD/SVCD/XCD Reader. On October 30, 2005 Gabest added *.mp4 and MPEG-4 Timed Text support. [1] An AAC decoding filter has been present in MPC for a while, which makes MPC suitable for AAC playback in mp4, and an alternative to Winamp and iTunes.

DirectShow, QuickTime and RealPlayer architectures
Media Player Classic is primarily based on the DirectShow architecture, and therefore automatically uses installed DirectShow decoding filters. For instance, after installing the open source DirectShow decoding filter ffdshow, fast and high quality decoding and postprocessing of the DivX, Xvid and H.264 formats is available in MPC.

In addition to DirectShow, MPC can also use the QuickTime and the RealPlayer architectures (if installed on the computer) to play their native files.

Matroska and Ogg containers
Media Player Classic supports native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats. However, OGM audio playback is limited by a lack of support for the CoreVorbis DirectShow filter, which mainly affects newer OGM files (c. 2006). The crux of this problem is that MPC is hard-coded to use an older Vorbis filter, so even if one installs newer filters, MPC is unable to use them.[1]

TV tuners
MPC supports playback and recording of television if a supported TV tuner is installed.
