Verdict: Just like choosing perfumes, since they all can cover the body-odor, we tend to lay more emphasis on finding the right fragrance for ourselves that meets our personality rather than the time long it lasts. Thus, even though VLC is an open source media player tycoon that has been through many years and years ahead, if it hardly meets your need or caters to your way of visual perception, choose 5KPlayer.

Now for the last recommendation: if you are still lingering over which one to choose, 5KPlayer or VLC, why not download and use them both as mutual complements since they are free of charge and safe as house.
