The popularreminds one of the first versions of the Windows Media Player 6.4. While Microsoft has moved to a more larger player both in size and CPU usage, everyone wanted to simply play their videos without much effort. Lighter in memory usage as it is small and more simply.
Theis great not only because it uses less memory but also has the ability to zoom and to play DVD’s. It also still supports QuickTime and Real Player Alternative files. It has built in MPEG2 and DVD codecs. If you are looking for a player that uses a bit more memory but plays more video then look for the VLC player on this website.
