Editors' Review

GOM Player is a free video and media player that offers high-quality playback, easy optimization, and a sleek interface. It's easier to use than some of the popular open-source players but nearly as flexible and less confusing (better-looking, too). With extras like screen capture, GOM Player offers quality playback without the fiddly settings of the better-known alternatives. Naturally it has all the essentials, such as full-screen view, playlists, and hot keys.

GOM Player's look is quite attractive, with orange highlights on active buttons and a control panel resembling an audio component's aluminum faceplate; you can reskin the interface, too, and select many other options from the main context menu. When you first run GOM Player, a setup wizard helps you configure the program's playback settings for your individual needs. There are three choices: Normal mode, which GOM player recommends for most users; High-Quality mode, which optimizes playback for high-quality displays but uses more system resources and is not recommended for less powerful PCs; and TV Output mode, which is great for home theater systems. We've seen plenty of ordinary video players and were more interested in what GOM Player can do, so we selected High-Quality mode. We also specified VMR9 output, which requires DirectX 9 or higher. We could also configure subtitles and enable multiple instances of GOM Player. GOM Player can play back audio in three stereo modes (2, 4, and 5.1 channels) as well as S/PDIF output. You can associate the program with a wide range of file types and extensions, too, though if you plan to try GOM Player without giving up your current media player, you may want to retain your file associations; you can always change them to GOM Player later, if you prefer.

GOM Player's playback quality didn't disappoint, nor did its controls and features. While we've long relied on open-source project players that have every bell, whistle, and option you can think of (or think up and add yourself), we'd have no problem with GOM Player in the projectionist's booth, and no problem recommending it to anyone needing an easy-to-use, high-quality video player.

March 06, 2012  |  By xaivic

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.1.37.5085

Pros

in VLC i had a couple of problems, in full screen the quality would decrease and appear like big pixels with a couple of smaller ones inside. and when in full screen the framerate would drop so that the pickture would hack alot. i have none of these problems with UMplayer and it's also got youtube engine build into it

Cons

there are none that i can find

"Legendary Video Quality almost better than Reality"

February 18, 2012  |  By badjaeaux

 |  Version: GOM Media Player 2.1.37.5085

Pros

I won my first art contest 1st Place out of 200 in 1992 when i was eight. When our home cable shows 0.0001% negative alteration in video quality, i was be the first in the world to protest. Windows Media Player 7/10 and VLC 6.9/10 GOM is 11/10 for Winning Sharp videos. Very easy to make, SMALL windows to view while also doing other stuff and can open MULTIPLE widows.

Cons

I would give GOM 11 out of 5 stars if it can provide as much codecs as VLC as music wise is currently zero (no music for my .flv .mp4 files). In 1992 our little boys choir won Christmas caroling contest 2nd place in our City of Millions. I will be a recording pro one day. One of my goals in life is to become a World No.1 Sound Engineer. Good News!! Windows Media Player is starting to work better when I downloaded the other two.

Summary

If you have Windows MP and VLC, you're gonna Luuove GOM !! It gives you Clearer, Sharper videos and its ABSOLUTELY FREE !! I want to THANK the Lord Almighty God for EVERYTHING my Family our Life, our Food, our Safety the amazing Internet and may he Bless the People making GOM, Cnet, VLC, WMP and their Families as well with Good Health and Abundance for making our Dear Earth a better place, for sharing their valuable talent and skills. Thank You Very Much from our Family, from the bottom of our humble yet grateful hearts Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and R. Kelly BIG TIME sharers ALL time Legends +) <3<3<3
