Haihaisoft Universal Player is a nice free alternative to Windows Media Player adding extra codecs for added features, with a nice clean interface that resembles Windows Media Player.

The downside is the fact it requires a codec pack to run. It doesn't have it's own built in codec pack. Every feature you can get from Haihaisoft Universal Player you can get with Windows Media Player through the same K-Lite Codec Pack.

To me this is rather redundant because the whole purpose of an alternative is to provide more features than the alternative not provide the same exact features. I see no reason to switch from Windows Media Player to Haihaisoft Universal Player when the codec pack it uses gives Windows Media Player the same features and it looks almost exactly like Windows Media Player.

Pros
  • Powerful Media Player
  • Nice Clean Interface
  • Free
Cons
  • Requires Codec To Play Certain Video Files
  • Windows Media Player Can Use The Same Codec
  • Makes Switching From Windows Media Player Redundant
