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.

"Infected SW"

May 14, 2016  |  By hk2000dc

2016-05-14 08:04:52  |  By hk2000dc

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.3.0.5248

Pros

USED TO BE great.

Cons

Now it's an infected POS. Norton started notifying me of attacks being blocked as soon as I started installing it. Also keeps popping up ads in the player that I cannot seem to get rid of- in short, even though it is very versatile, it's just too risky IMO!

Summary

Find something else.
