Geek Software of the Week: GOM Player!
So… first off, I LOVE the VLC Player, and I am still using that… but if there was a second choice for me, it would be this one… the GOM Player! You may say, that isn’t exactly a rousing recommendation… well, it is and isn’t… players are personal preference, and I just like VLC Player’s features and such… but this one is really nice too and you may find it more user friendly!
“GOM Player supports most popular codecs (AVI, DAT, MPEG, DivX plus many more) with its own embedded codec system that you won’t have to look for appropriate codecs everytime you can’t play a certain video format. For those codecs that require a license that cannot be distributed, GOM will automatically lead you to an open-source codec web-site. Watch video files while you are downloading them! GOM has a registered patent for playing broken AVI files and files that are still being downloaded. So try one of your broken AVI files or one that you are downloading right now. You’ll find it amazing! GOM supports a lot of advanced features for advanced users. You can customize the player by creating your own skin, setting toggle keys, VMR modes, detailed resolution among others. It also provides features such as an overlay mixer, real-time index rebuilding for AVI files, unicode support, key frame based RW/FF and many more!”
