I'm looking for an old-style media viewer, one that relies on codecs and filters in the host OS to play videos. Newer video players (like VLC) includes libraries that allows to play everything instead, and I want to play some videos through OS.
So it seems that the best (maybe only?) option is using Media Player Classic, but that project was abandoned... and then forked into two projects: Media Player Classic Black Edition and Media Player Classic Home Cinema. I'm confused, because wikipedia says that MPC-HC was abandoned again but there is still some people updating it... and MPC-BE is the still supported project. Looking again at wikipedia, it seems that MPC-HC has newer versions than MPC-BE, but MPC-BE has more features.
What old style media viewer would you recommend? (Using Windows Media Player is not an option) Do you prefer MPC-BE, MPC-HC or are any other media viewer?
