With the tons of TV shows, movies, and documentaries out there in various different definitions and encoded in different codecs and formats, every user looks for the one player that is able to smoothly buffer videos and has the ability to open all sorts of files, ranging from .mp4‘s to .mkv‘s. I hated those days when I had to try to find a codec (that cost money) for Windows Media Player, and I am very grateful for programs out there that don’t have this sort of hassle attached with it.
GOM Player (Gretech Online Movie Player) is a tool that you can use to watch videos. I first started using GOM Player because my VLC Player would freeze my videos consistently (around ever several minutes or so). I’m currently troubleshooting this problem, but in the meantime I still wanted to find a way around this predicament. To my dismay, although GOM Player did read .avi files quite well, it required a codec in order to watch .mkv files. Not the end of the world, but certainly a bit less impressive than VLC’s all-around compatibility right out of the box.
