Media Player Classic (MPC) is a compact media player for 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows . The application mimics the look and feel of the old, lightweightWindows Media Player 6.4 but integrates most options and features found in modern media players. It and its forks are standard media players in the K-Lite Codec Pack and the Combined Community Codec Pack .
MPC-HC updates the original player and adds many useful functionalities including the option to remove tearing , additional video decoders (in particular H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 with DirectX Video Acceleration support), Enhanced Video Renderer support, and multiple bug fixes. There is also a 64 bit-version of Media Player Classic Home Cinema that supports Windows XP x64, Windows Vista x64, Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8 x64.
As of version 1.4.2499.0, MPC-HC was the first open-source media player to implement color management support.[citation needed ] Windows 8 support was introduced in version 1.6.5
