MPC-BE (also known as Media Player Classic Black Edition) is a free, open source media player for Microsoft Windows OS.

MPC-BE evolved from MPC-HC (Media Player Classic Home Cinema) which was a fork of Media Player Classic (MPC) a player that was very similar to the Windows Media Player. While MPC-BE may look similar to MPC-HC, you should note that MPC-HC project was abandoned in 2017. MPC-BE continued the development with its vision, features, and distinct improvements. If you're looking for an alternative to MPC-HC, try MPC-BE.

Note: MPC-BE is an excellent alternative to other free and commercial media players. If you like the project and encourage the development, please consider a donation to the team.
