    Hi!

    I use since many years VLC. It works fine with all Formats. And no Problems with the new 4K Movies.

    MPC simply because it is lighter for old computers/laptops, I used to get lags with VLC.

    The nice feature about VLC is you can loop a start point and stop point any where in a video. I don't think MPC can do that. I don't have troubles with either one of them but the DVD player that came with ten gave me all kinds of trouble...

    I use both VLC and MPC. Every now and then I will come across a movie that will be choppy or sound is distorted in one player so I switch to the other and all is fine. So it's great that both players work for the formats I play. Both are keepers to me

    cheers

    I like VCL over Media Player.. why?? Well, I found that VCL plays all of the formats I use.

    VLC, because if the file is playable, VLC will play it. However, for my ripped DVDs in AVI format with the original AC3 surround sound preserved I prefer Kodi because that is the only program, so far, I have found that will push the 5.1 surround sound through HDMI to my audio receiver.

    The one complaint I have about VLC (other than the sound) is the lack of library building.

    MPC-HC v1.7.11


    Just discovered:
    - apply 'minimal mode',
    - set to remember screen size and position,
    - apply right click context menu values,
    - apply multiple instances,

    opens entire folders in a clean player(s) as album thumbnails for multiple playlists.
    Still a nice player!

    I began using VLC long long ago when it was the only thing I could find that plays everything.

    But when I found K-Lite Media Player Classic, I dropped VLC.
    MPC has a much easier cleaner interface and it's much easier to use.
