My first choice for media player is the MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC. A free software.This player is in the field for many years now and most of you must be using it or aware of it. But not utilizing its potentials.
Have you heard about the K-Lite Codec Pack ? It comes bundled with Media Player classic as Extra Video codecs.. Its a complete package and contains everything you need to play your movies. There are three versions of the K-Lite Codec Pack: Basic, Standard and Full. For detail information and download of your choice check it here K-Lite Codec.
