Conclusion: On the concluding part, we can say that the Media Player Classic holds some place among the users considering it is quite simple to use, easy to install, does not take enough space. But since the users are limited as the software is just limited to Windows Users, the Media Player Classic lags behind in the number of users globally. When, we go through several reviews, we can arrive at the conclusion that, Media Player Classic holds some edge over VLC Media Player in terms of visual, but since the options are limited for the users, many people tend to have VLC Media Player at least in their systems. Personally speaking, Media are a class when we talk of the video aspects, and even, when I feel troubled with VLC Player in these aspects, I immediately switch to Media Player Classic.

Conclusion: Since, VLC Media Player is a versatile player, which works on different platform, the VLC Media Player, holds some edge over Media Player Classic. Even, the wide file format support is just another reason for the great love of the people towards VLC Media Player. The Audio aspects of VLC Media are much better than the Media Player Classic. While MPC is just for Windows, this holds great advantages for VLC Media. May be in the future, Media Player starts working on other platforms and there will be a great competition ahead. Considering the usage part, Media Player Classic has some noteworthy points over VLC media. The direct comparison gets diluted if you are not windows users. But for Windows users, Media Player Classic and VLC Media, both are the winners. Even, I have both the Media Players! Now, it’s your choice, what to use! The Ball is in your court, and since both are available for free, it is your choice to make. Remember, Mac and other platforms guys, need no thinking as there is no Media Player Classic available for them!
