Video Players?
Wondering if anyone has any video player recommendations.  I've just started using Media Player Classic, but something with a playlist and automatic codec downloading would be nice.  Sorry if this is too off-topic.  Should there be an Off-Topic subforum?

I also use MPC as video player, don't use anything else. You could take a look at Mplayer or Videolan or Core Media Player. Maybe Zoom player. But don't know if they have auto-download codecs...

You are so right.  I just started using it recently and hadn't discovered that yet.  Thanks.

MPC is my first recommendation and VLC would be my second. ffdshow-alpha is grat for handling video codecs and such - I use it with MPC. VLC comes with its own libraries so you don't need ffdshow, though I like ffdshow's post processing a bit better (one of the many reasons I use ffdshow with MPC for my vid stuff).

If, for some reason, you are not sure what codec a certain video uses, you can identify it with a prog called GSpot.

GSpot

@topdownjimmy:
This topic might help you 
It will be boring if you use a dshow-base player without ffdshow, but you need alot of parser, splitter to get them work...
MPlayer also is a great player,
although compile the binary it's a bit painful...
