    I have VLC, MPC, Windows Media Player, QT,Xvid, and GOM player. They all have their own pros, but also their own cons. I like GOM the best, but it is riddled with adware, among which includes Yahoo Search(WTF?). I know how to remove it, but it is a pain in the ass, and that's not the point of this thread. I'd like you pinheads to tell me what you use and what's so good about it. Thank you in advance. I'll hang up and listen for your answers.

    I use WMP Classic, it works great. But when the audio is out of sync I use VLC because it's easy to adjust that.

    MPC-HC, lean, does everything I need including easily turning subtitles off and on and outputting AC3 and DTS tracks. Have my PS3 bluetooth remote set up to control it as well.

    Anybody know how to make it so MPC doesn't pause the movie when you click the screen?

    View>Options>Player>Keys>Play/Pause Double click on mouse behaviors for windowed mode and fullscreen. Default is left mouse button to play/pause in both windowed and fullscreen mode. You can make it none for one or both.

    I still remember back in 2003 telling a few of my friends about VLC like it was some hidden gem, even back then, they all knew about it.

    My random story for tonight.

    I also use WMP with LAV filters for my HTPC. I should be using MPC-HC with madVR but LAV works fine and looks good enough to me.
