I went to MPC first. Here is the last post, by clsid on 5th August 2007:
"Media Player Classic (patched build)
I have made a custom build of Media Player Classic. It is based on the latest source code from the original Guliverkli project. Changes include some bug fixes, fixes for all known security vulnerabilities (yes, people at Secunia, they are fixed!), updated libraries, and a few small tweaks and improvements.
I have no plans to do any further development on MPC. I don’t have the time nor the skills to do that. However, if someone posts a patch that fixes or improves functionality in MPC, then I would be happy to include it and compile an updated version. I also occasionally backport small changes from MPC-HC.
The Home Cinema version of Media Player Classic is actively being developed (by Casimir666 et al). That version also includes all important patches that I have applied. All feature requests and bug reports should be placed there. "
