What's the best free, and easy to use video player out there that will play most any videos I've downloaded? I have been using an older BSPlayer (before they put add into it) and it's starting to not be able to play some videos I've got recently so any help would be very welcomed.

I second VLC. Smile It plays everything and it is open-source. <3

If you somehow don't like VLC, Media Player Classic is a really great one as well. Smile

I third the motion. It's really hard to find thing that VLC doesn't play. I've been using it for awhile and I still haven't found anything that doesn't work with it. I mean come on, it's totally free!

VLC is love Smile. Definitely go with it. But I shall say, it is quite ugly Sad. Oh well, hopefully someone will develop it and make it prettier Smile

^ There are tons of VLC skins you can download and install. Meow You can even make your own if you know how. The default interface is built to be light-weight I guess so it's not that attractive.

VLC is looking like it's going to work out great. Its's already played some of the ones I was having a hard time with. Thanks so much!

For what it's worth I can also recommend VLC, it even does a good job of de-interlacing mpeg files like VOBs etc.

I actually use XP Media Center for most of my viewing (and listening), with the 'Combined Community Codec Pack' installed it plays absolutely everything on both the laptop screen and when connected to HDTV. This is a little strange as not all files will play on WMP, even though Media Center uses it as it's player Confused

I mainly use VLC when nosing through folders, which XPMC isn't really designed for.
You won't be dissapointed with VLC (although I imagine you probably have it by now! Wink )

Well I use VLC player too, and it works fine, except for some ogm files, The player gives 'Don't send' type of error and I don't know what is the problem, but when the VLC fails to play the video file, I use ZoomPlayer, which comes wtih the CCCP codec pack Smile
