Being the most popular out of all in the entire world, you’ve already heard the name of VLC Media Player. According to the stats, VLC Media Player has managed to bag the very first position with approximately a hit of 5500 likes.

Media Player Classic.
It was released early in the year 2003 which might leave you nostalgic much. The Black Edition of it comes up with better features and improvements lacking at the ‘ease of use’. It isn’t that handy. But the major reason for it bag the rank 3 in this section is because of low usage of resources and the minute size, saving your memory bytes –big time. Integration with Skype just makes it better, like a cherry on the top. Here is the link to get it.
It works great even with the older versions of hardware. Subtitle features of it are the highlight of this media player. It provides features like advanced subtitle formats, multiple display of subtitles at the same instance, streaming video online via URL etc makes it intriguing to use.
You possibly haven’t heard ‘Potplayer’s’ name, right? Well, this not-so-famous media player comes from South Korea. It might be not that famous but is equally worth a try. It is that good that if it manages to receive some appreciation, it’ll kick VLC from its rank. Both are almost similar except for the situations when you need to deal with larger files, PotPlayer works better, way too better. And is the best to watch Blu-ray videos.
This not known at all players resides somewhere hidden in the Windows Store. The ACG Player is sadly the most underrated and trivialised players of all. Its interface is simpler than you expect it to be and the usage of memory bytes is the least. Features like gesture customization, playlist administration, online streaming makes it worth to give a try.
