  • long time user of VLC player however the last version update I had it bogged down to a crawl.
    I found potplayer thinking until I got vlc sorted out,I never changed back,its fast and does what I need.
    I have a massive music collection so for that I do like 1x1 player as it plays from the directory without making playlist,its not pretty and maybe could have a couple added options but it works flawlessly as is.

  • I have tried all of those. VLC is the one I use. But KLM wasn't too bad either.

  • VLC for me is the best, has not failed me yet, I've tried the other alternatives but this is so far the best when it comes to MP3 and Movies. I've tried the KLM and its not to bad, tried the K-Lite or the Media Classic which reminds me of my Win 98 days. I will stick with VLC for the mean time, I think its because of the traffic cones,, hehehe
