GOM player is a free user-friendly video player that has enough power to play most known multimedia formats with ease. With all of its features easily accessible through a context menu, everything is a right-click away.
With support for most video and audio formats in it, GOM player will hardly ask you to install codecs. It will play broken files and will skip the frames that are missing or damaged. The learning curve for GOM player is not very steep. It will take you a few minutes to learn how to use it.
Its sleek design and compactness give it an edge over the competition. It can easily replace well known media players such as the built in Windows Media Player by Microsoft. It has most common features built into it such as media streaming from the internet and the ability to show subtitles wherever they are available. Like most media players it is skin-able so that you can feel comfortable while watching a video. The most used features have shortcuts, such as F12 to play from a movie CD/DVD drive.

With its pleasant interface and a ton of features, it flies miles over the other multimedia players.

Guest #29618980 If GOM Player or MPC use lots of memory, use Daum Pot Player to safe your memory/RAM & processor.

Guest #33266307 Not really. I've actually used both. When I started up Daum Potplayer, my laptop was always crashing. And with GOM Player it wasn't crashing. That's my experience.
