Media Player Classic is an audio/video player which follows the design and functionality of the original Windows Media Player which was both simple and useful.

Much like the features of the original WMP, Media Player Classic features a simple and easy-to-use layout but includes much more functionality. Starting with the integration of many different audio and video codecs, this classic player can play most types of video files including: CD Audio, Flash video, QuickTime, RealPlayer, etc.

Though the layout of the program is pretty simple, the behind-the-scenes code of this program is highly advanced and supports context menus, pan-and-zoom, subtitle support and the ability to switch between audio streams (IE. English and French).

Overall, this application is still useful despite no longer being updated.
