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.

"Used to be my favorite, above WMP and VLC"

January 24, 2016  |  By Nick408

2016-01-24 01:38:18  |  By Nick408

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.72.5234

Pros

It's the only player that has beginning and ending time skips. Such as for skipping annoying sitcom theme songs. Best feature ever.

Cons

Malwarebytes used to remove it's PUP malware. No problem. But now Windows Defender flags it as straight up virus. What a letdown.

"Once great player reduced to simple malware"

December 25, 2015  |  By garylben

2015-12-25 14:48:59  |  By garylben

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.2.72.5234

Pros

Plays everything well; great as a player as long as your attention is devoted to the screen absolutely.

Cons

In the last few months of this once outstanding software has devolved into simple malware. It now pops up a crapware download prompt on startup and after each file which can't be closed, except by starting another file. Worst of all, that prompt is in the center of the playback area, which is also the area the user clicks to access the control menus. Constant vigilance is needed to keep from downloading the very worst sorts of PUP software and malware. Sooner or later a user WILL unwittingly download some of this crapware onto their machine.

Summary

Try VLC or any of the others. The learning here for me is that this company I once considered to be at the top of the field has absolutely no ethical standards. This outfit should not be trusted and thier software products (all of them!!!) should be avoided. This is the most let down I have felt by a company I trusted and respected in a very long time.
