Media Player Classic – BE is a free and open source audio and video player for Windows. Media Player Classic – BE is based on original “Media Player Classic” project (Gabest) and “Media Player Classic Home Cinema” project (Casimir666), contains additional features and bug fixes. The BE mod (Black Edition Mod) is a skinned version of Media Player Classic Home Cinema, much more aesthetic than the old MPC.
