MPC-BE or Media Player Classic Home Cinema Black Edition Mod is a light-weight media player that supports all common video and audio file formats available. The BE Mod (Black Edition Mod) is a heavily modified version of Media Player Classic Home Cinema, much better looking than the plain old MPC. MPC-HC BE Mod is usually newer because they use the latest SVN the most up-to-date version of the code. MPC-BE can use either the codecs that you installed to your system, or its own codecs without affecting the rest of your system. Thus you are able to play almost all video and audio formats even on a system where no codecs were installed, such as MPEG, WMV, Quicktime (MOV), DIVX, Real Video, MJPEG, H.261, H.263, H.264, HuffYUV, Indeo 3/4/5, Theora and others. While being very easy to use, MPC-BE is loaded with many advanced features. You can select audio tracks and subtitles in multi-track videos, or even load audio and subtitles from separate files etc.
