MPC-HC is an open source media player for Windows.
The program opens just about any audio or video format, along with CDs, DVDs or DVDs, and standard playback controls ensure you'll feel at home right away.
MPC-HC is vastly configurable. The interface can be customised, keyboard shortcuts remapped, file associations set or cleared, playback defaults defined, and a host of small features enabled or disabled.
Video experts in particular will love the complete control they get over filters, shaders, renderers, and every other aspect of playback.
The end result is supremely flexible. MPC-HC doesn't just have an 'always on top' setting to keep its window above everything else, for instance - you can enable this only when you're playing video, so the window is visible when you need it, but can be safely hidden when you don't.
There are some handy extras scattered around the menus, too. Creating a contact sheet of frames taken from a video normally required a separate application, but MPC-HC can do it in a click or two (File > Save Thumbnails).
But despite all the functionality, MPC-HC is very lightweight, runs happily on otherwise underpowered PCs, and has plenty of optimisations to improve performance even further, if you need it.
Version 12.5 changes include:
◦Internal Subtitle Renderer: Convert colorspace of subtitles to match video.
◦Append files to the playlist on drag&drop while holding “Control” key
◦Enable Press and Hold gesture to make easier access to context menu on touch devices
◦Subtitle renderer: Better compatibility with ASS/SSA subtitle files that are slightly violating the specs
◦Rename “Display Stats” and “Reset Display Stats” features to “OSD: Display Renderer Statistics” and “OSD: Reset Renderer Statistics” so that their meaning is clearer in the “Keys” option panel. Also rename “Display Stats” to “Display Statistics” in the “Renderer Settings” menu
