Editors' Review

Media players are a dime a dozen, which makes it hard for them to stand out from the crowd. Media Player Classic Home Cinema is another contender in the category, but its glitchy performance failed to impress us enough to make the switch from our current player.

The program's user interface is as basic as it gets, which isn't a bad thing. A menu runs across the top of the window, offering navigational options: File, View, Play, Navigate, Favorites, and Help. A bar with buttons for playing, pausing, stopping, and skipping forward and backward resides at the bottom of the window. We started by inserting a DVD. Since it wasn't our default player, we had to find and open it in the player. The DVD started playing without any issues, but when we clicked the Stop button and then the Play button to resume, rather than start where it left off, the DVD started from the beginning. We tried it again several times only to have the same outcome. Help is available through a link that takes you to the Support page on the program's Web site. From there, a link takes you to a Web site to obtain documentation in various languages, but the idea of downloading a file from an unknown site doesn't exactly spell "security."

Media Player Classic Home Cinema installs and uninstalls cleanly. Overall, there were just too many issues with the program to warrant a recommendation from us.
