Reviews by Scientific Frontline

It's just not a worthy player to even consider a true review. As Josh pointed out... what award
Now mpchc may not be the prettiest or skinable like some... but if you are wanting to play videos, (any video) this still gets my highest ranking.

It should have been fine, but as reported before... there are many download sites that have injected Trojan/Viruses in the package. The worst of them is "brothersoft .com."

It is best to download VCP from the source: http://shark007 .net

Keep in mind "free-codecs.com" is not at all responsible for what you get from the mirror download sites. They are just are a well trusted review and link site.

Although I hate to do this on a review for a product, I would really suggest K-Lite Mega Codecs, and use the MPHC player that is offered with it.

Should solve issue. Yet really, get away from GOM... so many better free players.

Stand on your head...
Oh come on you knew someone was going to say it.

Frankly I have yet to find one thing that I like about GOM.

MPHC still much better, heck even Jet Audio is better.

Dear Dan,
I downloaded the latest package in Sandboxie and checked with Norton 360. The file is clean.
Please indicated which mirror you downloaded from so that can be checked and report to the good guys at Codec.com. There is unfortunately a few mirror site that come up at Codecs.com that have been known to be infected. I also have noticed that Codecs.com takes affirmative action to remove those links.
What puzzles me Dan is why you installed it if Norton's said it was infected. Set your download MRG. to scan after download, and you would not had an issue.

I personally don't use this package, but thoroughly tested it and found it to be a very clean and well thought package.

For those who want to be more security, highly suggest you learn how to use Sandboxie before moving a program to regular program files.

The updates just keep getting better!
Flawless performance.

Now to change the subject to those that are having issues with MPC/H
Keep in mind that those that are distributed with K-lite are beta versions.
The true latest stable build is:
v1.3.1249.0 / 27 august 2009
and can be downloaded here:
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge .net/History.html

MPCH is by far one of the best players, and is mine by choice. Yet I have had issues with versions released with K-lite.

Highly recommend using only the version from the official sourceforge site to reduce issues.

Have to agree... Never really could understand why anyone would use this program.
RP has been on life support way too long.
RP you do need to RIP.
Now what would we recommend.
Just can't go wrong with MPC Home Cinema.
VLC
and my favorite back-up and for audio: JetAudio

Amazed on how many problems I am see by others.
8 comps running K-Lite Mega and no issues. Everything from XP to Vista 64
What I am seeing with many of the problems listed is most likely the same issues.
1. Never overwrite old version.! Uninstall
2. Never have more then one Codec package.

Here really is the best way. Uninstall all other codec packages. Run a registry cleaner if you had other version then K-Lite.
Reboot and install.
