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.

    "Found it late but I did find it!"

    October 16, 2014   |   By andrew.seldis

    Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.62.5209

    Pros

    + An excellent UI, with minimal lag in PC functioning.
    + Good clarity of video and audio.
    + Everything is built in.

    Cons

    - None, really!!

    Summary

    After being a faithful follower of VLC for a long time I expected a lot. VLC itself has gone down the drain quality-wise, but I needed that old feel again. Tried KMPlayer but it left me disappointed. Then stumbled upon this and I have never been happier. Most recommended.

    "Latest version 2.2.62.5209 does not work on Windows XP"

    October 10, 2014   |   By briddge

    Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.62.5209

    Pros

    Love GOM player and I prefer it over other media players.

    Cons

    Can't install latest version. I have Windows XP sp3 and I get an installation error saying "installer package cannot be used on your computer."

    Summary

    System requirements says works on XP, you'd expect it to install on XP. Right? So what's the problem? Why GOM ppl say works on XP when it doesn't.

    They need to clarify the cpu requirement or exclude XP altogether as older XP computers aren't going to meet new cpu requirement.

    I'm bummed i can no longer update GOM. I'm stuck with version 2.2.56.5183.

    Pros

    Plays various media formats. Previous version on WinXP PC worked fine.

    No audio with 64-bit Win8.1 PC. Same thing with the previous GOM version.
    No audio trouble with VLC or WinMedia players.
