MPC-BE Review

Sven Sorensen
Media player taking from the best of other open source projects
A review of MPC-BE by Sven Sørensen

MPC-BE (Media Player Classic - Black Edition) is a free and well thought-out video player which has taken a lot from other open source projects, especially that of the original Media Player Classic.

Since the program uses the code of the ever-so-successful MPC, it is fully capable of playing almost any known video file format currently available and it is also highly capable of playing back audio files without any hitches. MPC-BE can play Blu-ray dics, DVD discs and other optical or solid state media.

The user interface of MPC-BE is very easy to use and includes all of the main basic controls of other media players (such as play, stop, pause, etc.) along with a ton of other tools for viewing media such as options for controlling aspect ratio, zoom, filters, shaders and volume output. Almost everything can be controlled with hotkeys and many adjustments can be assigned to mouse operation include the mouse wheel.

MPC-BE can also select different "Rendering Settings", control color management (Input Type, Ambient Light, VSync, etc.) and can also tweak your GPU for enhanced video playback.

Since MPC-BE is a highly customizable and powerful media player, it can take a little while to get used to so many options but after getting accustomed to its features, MPC-BE is certainly a valuable program to have installed.

Overall, MPC-BE is an excellent media player that most power users would enjoy.
