As far as continuously developed video players, I recommend MPC-BE here (get latest 1.5.2 release):

Or MPC-HC, now only occasionally updated but still killer:

The famous Potplayer is excellent but the options approach "quicksand" complexity.  VLC Media Player, also excellent but cannot use the top-notch madVR renderer unlike the others.  This topic should be moved to the Misc./Off-Topic forum if you want to continue to discuss video players.

Have you had a look at this component? https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,113166.0.html (now renamed Chimera, see #50).

Won't make fb2k into a full-blown video player, but if your thing is to have vids accessible from fb2k ...?
