Hi Rahul,
Superb post. I thought you introduce ordinary media players. I prefer KM Player on top of everyone. I personally love it a lot and very fond of the feature to seek forward and backward with arrow keys. Volume control can also be done with up and down arrow keys. But I like to play old media files with VLC because it gives much volume than others (upto 400% I think). Daum Pot player is new to me among the list.

Thank you so much for yet another superb post.
