Pros: Plays most multimedia files thrown on it. The integration of video capture from a web cam is a nice feature as well as the media info.
Cons: This "mega" cocktail of codec sometimes give me a headache to configure properly but pleasurable when I got it right on my computer.
Other Thoughts: There are releases that will make me mad because I cannot properly configure my 5.1 speaker system to function as 5.1 do. Release 7.8.0 is one of them. Actually release 7.7.0 is also the same and I uninstall it. Just downloaded this one to try again. It is now two releases in a row that the problem persist. I was thinking that this is only related to its support of older OS such as WinXP but in my Win7 I experience same problem. I'll stay out of this pack for a while.
