GOM Media Player

15, Aug 2006


This Korean freeware media player grabbed my attention because of its simplicity of installation and use, packing at the same time more than enough features. It works like a charm for all the novice users, but also offers a lot of advanced features for advanced users (almost everything that Media Player Classic has and even a few additional options).

The best part is that GOM Player supports most of the codecs (AVI, DAT, MPEG, DivX and lots more) by its own embedded codec system, so you don’t have to look for appropriate codecs every time when you can’t play a certain video format or install any codec before or after the player is installed. Of course if you need to play some very exotic file format you’ll have to install the appropriate codec for it.

Another cool part in this player is the ability to play broken or incomplete AVI video files. Or in other words you can preview the downloaded part of a file and not have to wait for it to be completed in order to see it, or if the download stops for some reason you can preview the completed part before deciding to restart the download.

If you are into High Definition videos, the GOM Player can help you a lot, because it has one of the best playback of HD video… better than the one Media Player Classic has and most of the other video players!

And there is a lot more in the GOM Player, but you better try it and see for yourself…
