GOM Player

Guide

>> Main Window

The GOM Media Player user interface is composed of 4 main parts: the Main Window, the Playlist Window, the Control Panel, and the GOM Menu.
The Main Window is what you usually see when using GOM Media Player. It consists of the playback area, the seek bar, the basic playback controls, and the buttons to open the other windows of the user interface.
