I haven't needed to download videos of any kind for years, since streaming is so plentiful now. If I do end up having to hunt down a download that isn't available to stream, I'll usually watch it in Windows Media Player or Quicktime depending on the file format requirements. I'm not very good with codecs and the like so I try not to mess with the settings on that too much unless I absolutely have to in order to get a video to work.

As for my streaming sites, I'll just list them by order of priority below:

  1. Crunchyroll
  2. MoeTube
  3. KissAnime
  4. AnimeFrost
  5. DubzOnline

I don't really watch too much animu these days, but when I do, I always use either KissAnime's player for streaming, or MPC with the CCCP.

Sadly I'm running on a craptop, so I don't get to use any of the real high-fidelity effects; but it's still leagues ahead of VLC or even Windows Media Player.

mpv with a custom config on linux. Sometimes use svp with it too. More often for films.

I just use VLC since it's easy and I don't have to install codec packs.

I originally installed VLC to view WebMs before I knew you could just open them with a browser and kept it around to watch anime on. Recently decided to try out MPC after VLC finally hiccuped on me during an anime.

I use KCP which is just a modified MCP. I have it set as an external player in Kodi for my HTPC

He has no style. He has no grace. This Kong has a funny face.

Hate me but I use WMP because I actually like the pretty buttons at the bottom, and K-lite Mega (I know it includes MPC-HC BUT u.u)

oh yeah, and if I'm on linux, just regular mplayer

I recently discovered that it's incredibly easy to convert MKVs into a format the PS3 can stream so I've been messing around with that lately. Anime looks pretty good on a big TV.
