Can anyone recommend a lightweight x265 player?

VLC media player uses too much memory for me.

Thank you

How much memory do you have and how is VLC in use affecting your machine overall?

I have about 2gb, pentium dual core, windows 7.

Yesterday after upgrading to the latest version of vlc, i was playing a video and the system started making the sound it makes when it is under strain. After closing vlc it became normal. I had firefox open but it was never a issue before.

If you're referring to a bios beep sound, this could be due to a number of reasons. If though the sound is coming from your speakers, it could be something else. In any case, you might like to try this player which is generating good comments from some of our members, including for resource use.

I've given the Softpedia link because the home site is in Russian.

Playing x265 videos requires much resources of the system. If the resources are not enough, you might experience the system being under strain. If the resources are not enough, then no matter which player you try, the video will not play properly.

You have not specified the exact model of your processor. But, from what I guess, it might not be enough to play the x265 video.

A video card often helps in such cases, or a sound card.

I am no expert, but this is what I have observed.

x265 videos are certainly for play on the newer systems.

You can try PotPlayer, or LightAlloy as suggested, but my guess is, the result will be the same.
