The best DivX/XviD media players

Recommended Posts

Right now I use PowerDVD version 6 for any video files, and winamp for all audio files

I use MediaPlayer Classic for all video files, including quicktime, .ogm, RealMedia files, and just about anything else, other than .bin and .cue files. For those, VLC all the way.

i have always just stuck with windows media player 9, it is a pain in the ass to find the right codecs sometimes but once you've got all the right ones it plays just about anything you can throw at it

Windows Media Player 10

 

I CANNOT use anything else...I just cannot get used to it, lol

 

except i use quicktime 7 for .mov files, and VLC for avi files with more than one audio stream and maybe VLC for dvd's as well - skips right to menu lol

This is a very good thread, but I would like to get an answer with respect to Linux Media Players. I tried Media Player Classic, but it didn't work on Ubuntu Linux 5.04. I tried VLC on Ununtu, but it does not allow me to configure aspect ratios (e.g. 4:3). I used the default Totem Media Player that comes with Ubuntu, but it just plain sucks!

 

What does one use for LINUX!!!???

xine (gxine is the gui) and mplayer (gmplayer is is the gui) are both excellent. I also notice a setting for aspect ration in vlc's settings under video preferences.

 

all the best,

mplayer in the console, it just plays everything, audio and video, and you dont even need a gui, no X, no window managers, or you can, its just the best and runs smoother than windows media player, in the console and on the gui, and you can streamrip from realmedia sources and windows media sources. if you have frame buffer installed then that makes it work in a tty.

 

and the contents inside bin and iso's without unpacking them.

VLC and MPC + the Alternative plugin's for video for me. To hell with codec packs, and hunting down individual codecs.

I use WMP10.

 

A lot of my problems with codecs is currently solved by ffdshow.

 

ffdshow is DirectShow and VFW codec for decoding/encoding many video and audio formats, including DivX and XviD movies using libavcodec, xvid and other opensourced libraries with a rich set of postprocessing filters.

VLC rocks. It can't do playlists for music very well, but it's "the best" for anything video in my book.

1st-off HI all ! (just joined, 1st post)

 

After using "MicroDVD Player" for a long time, i tried using a few new ones.

I just tried VLC and un-installed it after 5mins...im sorry but it suxx IMHO...

 

My personal suggestions would be:

1 - The MicroDVD Player

2 - The Core Media Player

 

If you cant playback certain files its because you're missing the needed codecs.

You can get help determining which codecs you need and possibly get them also at Codec Wizard

 

Hope this info helps some ppl also ;)

mplayer is totally sweet too, although not so much in windows, otherwise awesome. can run it from command line, which is sweet, if you like that kind of thing, and lots of options for different gui.

I'm impressed!

I hadn't ever heard of VLC so i had to give it a try especially after the claim it would play corrupted files... low and behold these claims are true.

 

The interface is clean and simple, and it even played an old DivXof the first Spiderman film i had lieing around that i had never been able to play. I am now a VLC convert thx guys :)
