Editors' Review

+

As various media players jockey for position to become your default setting for music and video streams, GOM Media Player's support for a wide range of file formats has helped it stand out as a firm favorite.

Supported formats include DAT, MPEG, DivX, XviD, WMV, ASF, AVI, and MOV, as are common codecs like FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, and H263. A pop-out playlist can save and organize your various media files, though the limited sort modes--two--hardly makes it a champ.

More impressive are the customizable settings on the control panel. Here you can adjust a video's image brightness, hue, and saturation. There's no preview window, and changes occur as the video runs, so unless you care for a rousing session of trial and error, be sure to tweak the settings after clicking "play." There's also a built-in screen-capture feature that includes zooming and panning, customizable themes, hot keys, and a host of preset and adjustable audio controls.

GOM is weakest when you're looking for help documentation and trying to tweak Save settings, but overall it's a very strong player worth at least a supporting role in your video-watching habits, if not the lead.

    "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 trouble with VLC or WinMedia players.
