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.

"clean and simple GUI is compatible with noobs or grandma..."

March 17, 2008  |  By hsubpots

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.1.9.3753

Pros

and probably why there's no help or faq available, otherwise you'll have to hunt/ask their forums for a solution. Doesnt max your cpu like its close competitors. Does what it says especially divx/avi/xvid files - quality in full screen is comparable to wmp11and imho, better than vlc even with the jalopy I have it installed into:

Gom v 2.1.9.3752

Gateway/MSI P3, 900Mhz Celeron

Xp/sp2, 512Mb
