Recommendation for a media player

I would like to run one of the media player apps on a USB drive, that has to be run on an older, slower computer. This computer already has MPC on it, and when it was transitioning between video clips on a playlist, it gave a one second MPC splash screen (or whatever it was called), before going on to the next video.

So I'd like a video player that runs light--all I need to do is play MP4 (and perhaps an occasional) WMV video, but I suppose they all can do that. I'd like it to require as few system resources as possible, and transition seamlessly between videos on a playlist. I suppose I can install and run them all, and see which one is best, but just to save some time, does someone already know of a video player that can do that? is the link for the video player apps.

MPC is light

As media players go, MPC is about as lightweight as modern players get in terms of resource usage.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
