Media Player Classic - Home Cinema

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema (MPC-HC) is a free and open source audio and video player for Windows. MPC-HC is based on the original Guliverkli project and contains a lot of additional features and bug fixes.

We are in dire need of new developers of any kind. If you can code a little, or you can create logos for the player and images for the file associations, or you can create/maintain the main website, please join our IRC channel and talk to us. Any help is always appreciated.

Find some easy ticket on our trac page, fix the problem, send a pull request, or post the patch on trac or come on IRC and we'll review it for you.

We care about keeping an open project open and free for contributions wherever they may come from.

Main Features:

  • Option to remove tearing
  • Better support for Windows Vista/7, including a 64-bit build
