    SMPlayer. In my usage it was less resource intensive than vlc.
    You would notice the difference clearly on less powerful hardware. Vlc struggled to play 1080p x265 mp4 file, but SMPlayer played it without any hiccups.
    Also it remembers the last playing position of files and subtitles loaded last time, search & download subtitles, save screenshot, play youtube or any streaming link, play dvd, play internet radio, save playlist, all other basic player features.

    since KMPlayer went downhill I switched to PotPlayer, it has everything you need.

    Used to use Potplayer with madVR, but now permanently switched to Media Player .NET (MPDN) with render scripts.

    I've been using Daum PotPlayer 64bit for a while now and think it's fantastic.

    I tried Potplayer, SMPlayer, VLC, and others until I ended up using MPC-HC 64x.

    Good thing that PotPlayer can do all of those, and even more like Game/Video Recording [just one out of bazillion things it does], yet everything in a tiny 20MB setup. :D SMPlayer is also neat by the way, it would be my 2nd/3rd choice :)

    I use vlc, it's pretty good but I will switch to MPC-HC next time I reinstall my OS, just to try something different.

    For me, VLC is the best.
