The TechRadar site decided to settle the matter of media player performance in definitive fashion, loading up a few test files in different formats in 16 different media players, including Lifehacker favourites VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic and Windows Media Player, the built-in app we've recently learned to love. The results?
VLC averaged out on top in loading speed, CPU utilisation and memory usage, while Windows Media Player "really didn't perform that badly". Other media players, including those among our five favourites, fared well, as detailed at the full post. [TechRadar]
