    Thanks for this… just discovered the CoreAVC codec pack. Also, you might be interested in Daum PotPlayer, which is another player by the creators of KMPlayer and and actually updated often. Not to mention it is supperior to KMPlayer in every single way, except for subtitles… worth checking out.

    • Ya I have tried the Daum PotPlayer and really didn’t like the interface; even though it is pretty much the core from KMPlayer. But maybe I will give it another try.. that was a couple months ago. Do they have a classic KMplayer skin? I will try hooking Daum PotPlayer up with CoreAVC and see how it goes…

      • Deus

        PotPlayer does actually have the classic KMPlayer skin (the one when you first install KMPlayer?), and a lot of the interfect and menus are very similar if not the same. PotPlayer seems to be better overall, on performance, in the details, etc…. the only problem I’m having with it is that sometimes the subtitles display at a different size and outline/shadow on different movie files…

          I agree with your comments on Coreavc and KM player if you get a setup for pot player let us know. I had an asus at3ion board i rebuilt for my daughter, added cooling and it plays 1080p and x.264 perfect thanks for the info

  • soner

    İ do not switch to Pot because it does not contain the text to speech feature allowing a blind user to watch movies with subtitles being read by a synthesiser which is available in km player. Pot may be update more often, yet up to now, there has not been a media file which i was unable to play with KM Player.

  • Kevin

    thank you so much, for giving this detailed tutorial… helped a lot. and now i gotta check out that other player to see, if its really better.
