How many times haven’t you been able to play an AVI file because it was corrupted? For sure that a lot of times, but if you had installed GOM player you would have played it with no problem because it automatically plays only the good parts of the file, skipping the corrupt parts of it. GOM Player can also play files which are incomplete because of the downloading process, so you can preview large videos before having them downloaded in your HD.

At last, we must highlight that GOM player includes the most important codecs and it automatically download the needed ones, so it will never fail when playing a file.
