Software Update: Gom Player

Spread the love

Gretech has released an update for version 2.2 of GOM Player. This free media player is developed by Gretech and is suitable for Windows XP or higher. GOM Player comes with several popular codecs, so they don’t need to be installed separately in Windows. If a file is played for which the codec is not yet available, it can be automatically found and added via the codec finder. Furthermore, support is available for playing incomplete files and of course also for subtitles. The installer comes with an AVG toolbar, but installation is optional. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Changes in version include the following.
