MPCStar 4.2

Simple media player with basic codecs

Some players come loaded with too many features and too many codecs - not MPCStar. MPCStar is a universal video player that can play most formats of films downloaded from the internet. MPCStar has been developed using open source libraries, so it's highly customisable if you have any programming knowledge. One of the best features however is a pop-up blocker which prevents pop-ups appearing that sometimes come loaded with films. View full description

Some players come loaded with too many features and too many codecs - not MPCStar. MPCStar is a universal video player that can play most formats of films downloaded from the internet. MPCStar has been developed using open source libraries, so it's highly customisable if you have any programming knowledge. One of the best features however is a pop-up blocker which prevents pop-ups appearing that sometimes come loaded with films.

To ensure smooth playback and not get weighed down with too many codecs, MPCStar contains only the major codecs including Media Player Classic, FFDshow Codec Pack, RealPlayer Codecs, ActiveX controls, QuickTime Codecs and DirectVobSub (a.k.a. VSFilter). The only problem is that these codecs are regularly updated and there appears to be no automatic update function but overall, this is one of the simplest and most powerful players I've tried since VLC player.

Changes

  • new option for fast/slow playback: keep pitch
  • add default hotkey for next/previous file
  • fix the bug that sometimes the cursor and status bar won't hide in full screen mode
  • fix the bug that sometimes the jump forwards/backwards hotkey will take action twice

MPCStar supports the following formats

AVI, WMV, WM, MPEG, ASF, RM, FLV, MOV, QT, 3GP, MKV, MP4, SWF

MPCStar is a universal video player. With the MPCStar you will be able to play any format of the movies that you download from the internet.

MPCStar is developed using opensource libraries, so it is completely free and contains no spyware or adware.
