GOM Media Player is a free alternative desktop media player with a range of advanced features. The software supports a wide range of file types and provides the user with extensive customisation options. It also integrates with GOM mobile apps, allowing to control your computer's media player using your mobile device as a remote control. Popular in its native South Korea, GOM is now moving into the English-speaking market.

Lots of features, lots of file types

GOM Media Player supports a huge range of file types, ranging from common video formats like mp4, AVI and flv to Matroska, Ogg, OGM and more. When the player doesn't have the necessary codec to play the chosen file, it will automatically search online for what it needs, directing you to a site where you can download the relevant codec. Designed for a multilingual environment, this media player also supports a wide range of different subtitle formats. You can even customise the appearance of the subtitles for maximum visibility. When setting up the player you can choose which file types it will automatically open; if you have a preferred media player for specific formats, you don't have to open them with GOM. You can also specify video output quality to suit the needs of your screen and device. If you want to take an image from a video, the screen capture tool is easy to use. If you want to watch a video while doing something else, you can adjust the player's transparency so that the video appears transparently over your screen.

A simple beginning with plenty of options

The basic interface of GOM Media Player is relatively simple; if you've used other media player applications you shouldn't have any trouble figuring it out. Advanced controls let you adjust more technical options while watching or listening to a media file. This second tier of options is something you'll find again and again in this app -- the basic functions are simple, but advanced options allow for a high degree of customisation, including customisation of the player's appearance. You can choose one of a small number of default skins or download additional free skins online.

Easy to use but with robust depth

This is an excellent alternative media player, with good support for a large number of file types and an excellent range of presentation options. If you're in the market for a free media player you can tweak and customise extensively, this could be a good choice for you, but it's also suitable for people who just want a simple player that will play whatever files they give it. The only major downside to this app is that technical support is pretty limited; the Help function is not much more than a link to a FAQ, and if your question isn't covered there, you're out of luck.

    "*Dangerous Software!*"

    Installs much more than a Google toolbar and totally destroys your PC with standard installation. *Do not install!*. More.
