GOM Player

whatisgom_img.gif Need a free multimedia player for Windows, but you hate downloading codecs? So do I. Well, no problems with this lovely player. Gom Player plays pretty much all of your usual multimedia file extensions and have all of the codecs built directly into the player application.
And that really helps you out when you don’t have Internet or what not to actually install codecs from.
Cons though? Building codecs directly into a player means that the physical footprint is probably larger than most of the other players. So something to think about when it comes to ttrade-offs.
