Media Player Classic Home Cinema Edition is a Media Player Classic modification that is especially catering towards Home Cinema users. It makes use of the basic key elements of Media Player Classic such as the low resource usage and compatibility with most popular video formats out of the box.

The Home Cinema edition adds a few handy functions and features to Media Player Classic. It adds an option to remove tearing, additional video decoders such as H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, support for EVR renderer and better Windows Vista support including a release for 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

The modification also adds several language translations which may come in handy for users who prefer a version in their own language. Definitely one of the best choices for media PCs. Runs extremely well on low end PCs.

Update: Media Player Classic Home Cinema, or short MPC-HC, has been in constant development ever since we reviewed the version here on Ghacks.

The latest version of the application is fully compatible with all recent versions of the Windows operating systems, and now available as a 32-bit and 64-bit version.

The 32-bit version of the player has a download size of less than 7 Megabyte which is really lightweight when you compare the size to other popular media players, even great ones like VLC Media Player or SMPlayer.

The player interface may not look like much but that is being made more than up for with the functionality it provides. The program plays all popular video and audio formats out of the box so that you do not have to go out codec hunting as it is likely that everything that you throw at it will play just fine after installation.
