Media Player Classic 1.7.8


The video player does not come with any fancy features to distinguish it from the competition. Instead it displays a simple and plain, but useful interface, that strongly resembles older Windows Media Player versions, but this is not bad, as most people will be familiar with these looks. Most of the interface is taken by the viewing screen and this is understandable. In the upper left corner users will see the usual program menus that will help you open a video file, adjust settings, work with favorites and use the online help. The bottom left is occupied by the basic Play, Stop, Pause and other buttons that manage the video file. Some interesting functions that are worth mentioning include the possibility to save or load a subtitle or search in an online database. The Play section allows you to go to a particular frame, select filters and shades, configure subtitles and others. The program goes as far as to offer full support for Blu-ray videos and movies.
