KMPlayer is another free and feature-rich video player for Windows 10. We think its sheer number of features makes it best for advanced users. With this movie player, you can control video and audio playback with buttons and hotkeys and adjust the video screen and sound with noise reduction and super high-speed mode. KMPlayer uses Chromecast to cast videos from your PC to your TV with no lag.

Kodi is a free and open-source movie player and entertainment hub. Store all your digital media in one place, including tv, movies, podcasts, music, photos, games, and more. Your movie collection is stored with artwork, cast, and genre, and the TV library shows episode and season views, posters or banners, watched tags, show descriptions, and actors.
VLC Media Player is completely free with no ads, spyware, or user tracking. It plays a wide range of file formats, making it a great movie player for people playing very old or unusual formats. It is filled with features, but there is a steep learning curve. Also, you cannot use tags on VLC Media Player, making organization difficult. Its learning curve and lack of Blu-ray support put this feature-rich movie player in the middle of our list.
Although MediaMonkey has excellent tools for audio playback, it does little to enhance video. We like this media player for its vast media organizational tools. Since it is free, it could work nicely alongside one of the free movie players above with Blu-ray/DVD playback, but few management features. For an all-in-one solution, try PowerDVD. It has similar organizational tools, plus upscaled audio and video for a home-theater experience.
