Until you get into the high end professional stuff, video quality has more to do with the hardware installed on your system then the player. if you look at the "minimum" .vs "recommended" system requirements of all video players, it'becomes evident. Unless your video hardware is capable of handling high resolutions, fast frame rates and other current video technologies, there is very little quality difference in most freebies. Even the actual video file format plays more of a role then the player itself.
