I myself have tested several different ones and still can't decide which is "the best". I only use players which have codecs built in so forgive me for not mentioning any other players requiring external codecs.
- VLC- very light; somewhat buggy; poor multi-monitor support (at least in Win2k)
- PotPlayer / KMPlayer - different interface but otherwise very similar; heavier than VLC; stable; good multi-monitor support
- GOM Player - sometimes requires external codecs; somewhat sloppy interface because parts of it rely on the IE engine (IE5/6 in case of Win2k )
- SMPlayer / UMPlayer - slow development; poor multi-monitor support; poor Unicode support
I've used VLC until recently but I'm thinking about switching to KMPlayer because I've got two monitors and VLC doesn't support switching between them very well (= doesn't work at all as the screen is either black or the player itself crashes).
Are there any other players which you would recommend?
