    I really like this app apart from that it has trouble playing some files.

    I prefer its simplicity compared to VLC, MPC, Potsplayer , WMP etc

    Is there any way to fix the codec error. ? It can mkv, but some mkv it cant I tried a registry fix but did not help

  2. NOPE, windows 10 may /may not have codec support for these files..
    probably try a codec pack

    Yeah, read that thread before posting. Recommendations were players mentioned. None of them have the ease and simplicity of Movies and TV. Even Windows Media Center which I can hack install W10 lacks the feature of going to the next video

    The skip buttons do not work with WMC remote. I guess I could customize taskbar but I hate no 30 sec skip ahead and back by default

    Do MPC-HC and BE share the same codecs ? BE is having trouble playing the same files I have trouble playing in Movies&TV but HC can play them fine

    MPC-BE is a fork of MPC-HC (which is a fork of MPC again), it has a different UI and a couple of improvements.
    They're basically the same programs with customized UI.

    Media Player Classic - Black Edition (MPC-BE) is a fork of MPC-HC. It moved away from MPC's aim to mimic the look and feel of Windows Media Player with updated player controls and provides additional features on top of MPC-HC such as Seekbar Previews.

    As far as codecs are concerned, you can use the internal filters or externalcodecs like LAV FILTERS.
