Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Portable
Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Portable (shortly known as MPC-HC) is an effective and reliable application whose main purpose is to help you play your favorite video files and listen to your songs within seconds.
Since it comes with support for all media formats including AVI, MP3, WAV, MP4, FLV etc., you are able to play what files you want.
The application sports the exact same functionality as the standalone edition; hence we dare say it is even more practical than the latter, since it doesn't affect the computer's registry.
Although it does not come with advanced functionality, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Portable still makes an excellent choice for those who just want to open multimedia files without wasting their time.
Simply navigate to the File menu and quickly open a file or directory. However, if you want to open an entire folder, the application will minimize and maximize according to the file type.
For instance, if the current file is a song, the utility will stay minimized but if you play a video file, it will maximize showing you all the available menus. In case you want to view all the opened files, go to the View menu and access the ‘Playlist’ option. This way, you are able to preview all the media files that are currently available in the playlist.
By accessing the Play menu, you can decrease or increase rate, go to a particular frame (especially useful when you need to split and join video clips), configure subtitles or change the volume as you want.
The Navigate section enables you to go to the previous file or jump to a specific song, as well as select audio and subtitle language, tile and chapter menu.
All in all, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Portable is a simple yet effective utility that helps you to play your favorite media files without installing complex applications and putting a strain on computer performance.
