MPC, short for Media Player Classic, is one of the best free media players for Windows. Media Player Classic create the nostalgia by mimicking the look and feel of Windows Media Player 6.4. On the other hand, unlike WMP 6.4, MPC boasts of options and features.

MPC-HC is the most popular fork version of Media Player Classic. "HC" means "Home Cinema". Since July 2017, MPC-HC has already stopped updating but the existing features are good enough for the users. After all, what more can we ask from such an excellent open-source media player? It is completely lightweight compare to the bulky iTunes.

Now that iTunes is saying goodbye to us, why not take this chance to switch to MPC-HC? It can save you a lot of storage and it has a better audio performance than VLC player. You can play iTunes movies and TV shows on MPC-HC without many hassles. The only thing you need to do is get the DRM-ed videos converted to DRM-free ones. And TunesKit M4V Converter is the only tool you'll need.
