Editors' Review

GOM Media Player gives you the ability to play all kinds of media files right on your Windows computer with no conversions required. The list of supported formats is extensive, and the many customization options let you watch your videos exactly the way that you want to.

Pros

Configuration options: When you first install this software, the Setup Wizard walks you through the process of configuring it. For instance, you can choose a Normal, High-Quality, or TV Output configuration, and you can also specify the speaker configuration you'll be using and the Codec System you want the program to utilize.

Control Panel: The program's Control Panel includes options for adjusting video brightness, contrast, and saturation, as well as audio qualities, and subtitle details. And, of course, you'll also find controls for things like Time Jump and Playback Speed.

Cons

No real help: There is a Help option that comes with this program, but it really just takes you to a FAQ Support Center where you can ask your own question or try to search through the countless other threads to find the information you're looking for. It would be nice to have some sort of basic Quick Start Manual at least.

Extra steps: The Setup Wizard is a helpful tool, but it does seem to take you through some questionable steps. For instance, you can specify which file types you'd like the program to handle, but it would make more sense for it to handle all of them by default.

Bottom Line

GOM Media Player is a competent option if you want to play various media files right on your PC. When you're done with the Setup Wizard, you're ready to start playing videos, plain and simple. Plus, the program is completely free, so there's really no reason not to give it a try.

"Tried to watch two movies and neither had sound."

January 26, 2015  |  By cosmicnut

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.64.5211

Pros

This app is quite easy to begin playing videos or movies. The full screen display is great, as well as the variety of screen sizes that are resident. See Cons:

Cons

Not all movies have sound, so the codecs are somehow weak or lacking altogether. This annoying situation forces me to switch to VLC or KMP.

Summary

GOM is only good for some videos and movies. If you don't mind the frustration of trial and error discovery, then you might enjoy it.

January 18, 2015  |  By brucebuk

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.64.5211

Pros

NONE - this program is infected

Cons

THIS FILE IS CORRUPT - I installed malware on my computer - something called SEARCH PROTECT - It lit up my virus program like fireworks on the fourth of July. it tried taking over my browsers. someone from download.cnet should try installing this and see what happens. had to go back a few days to a restore point.

"Great player but hate the adware that came with it"

December 14, 2014  |  By gayle_999

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.64.5211

Pros

Program itself worked great. I wanted to use it to get still shots of some video I had taken on a recent cruise. Options for capturing still shots were great and easy to use!

Cons

The same day I downloaded and installed GOM player, it also installed Tivoli search engine which took over my browser's default searching, and myradioplayer which randomly plays annoying ads in my Firefox browser. When I use Windows Control Panel to try to uninstall "myradioplayer" and "Search Protect" (A google search told me that Search Protect is what Tivoli is listed as under the program list), I get an error say it cannot be uninstalled or that it thinks it already uninstalled it. I was able to manually uninstall/disable Tivoli Search in my browsers manually. But I know it hasn't uninstalled from my system because the ads keep popping up in my browser, and I still have the myradioplayer icon on my desktop.

Summary

Great software for video editing stuff. Good luck getting rid of the crap that comes with it.
