There are many media players out there trying to be your default player for playing media files. But GOM Media Player stands out as a unique player because of its support for a big range of media file formats. This free multimedia player supports AVI MPEG DivX WMV XviD DAT ASF MOV and other common codecs like H263 MP4 OGG AC3 and FLV1.

There is a pop-out playlist that can help you to manage your media files or to save them in this free multimedia player. But the sorting mode is limited which fails to make us fall for it. The most impressive thing of this free media player is its customizable settings that are found on the control panel. You can easily adjust a video’s saturation hue and brightness.  You won’t be able to see the changes as there is no preview window so you have to do this adjustment while the video is playing.

If you love capturing screenshot from these videos there is a built in screen capture feature that can help you to do it. Other features of this universal media player include customizable themes adjustable audio controls zooming and panning. It can even play damaged or incomplete files by skipping the missing or damaged frames. When you want to play a file just drag it and drop it on the main window to start playing it.
