I have UMPLayer, but its gotten flakey. Stuttering, sound stops while video plays. These are videos I've downloaded from youtube. No viruses or trojans in them.

Thanks.

I use the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack for Windows Media Player it will basically play any audio/video file in WMP if you do that.
It might try to install a piece of adware so read the installation carefully!

Vlc works the best of the first two. Both seem to keep small video show areas, regardeless of the format of the original video. Nice when I'm working on web sites and just want to hear some video amvs I've downloaded. But not when it jumps between sizes for each video. I seldom watch full screen which is apparently the only other possibility.

I found a free video editor, but what it downloaded upon unzipping was a free audio editor, from dvdvideosoft.com

Cammygirl192, I'll check that one. Thanks !

In Media Player Classic when playing a video click O for options and keys and you will see all the shortcut keys
clicking 1,2,3 will change seek bar
Clicking Alt 1, Alt 2, Alt3, Alt4 etc will change player size
I could write several pages on the options within this player
