I’ve been a user of Media Player Classic since I remember. I don’t like the default Windows Media Player and any other alternatives didn’t interest me since all I needed was provided by MPC.
However, the latest version of MPC is such a piece of shit, it was almost unusable! Constant crashes, missing DLLs and stuff like that made me to take a closer look at VLC, which I’ve seen being used much often than MPC. I was pleased they provided an install-free version, so I downloaded the ZIP archive, extracted, tried out and after setting up some keyboard shortcuts etc… I must say, I am impressed!
The stability, speed and user friendliness won me over.
So long, MPC, it’s been pleasure using you, however, the competition has clearly an edge in all areas.
