Hi,

OMG! Sorry for the blunder, not even realized the whole question not only confusing other but me too. Apology.
 Is that advisable to use 2 different media player to verify whether the content is played in a right time speed?

Did you compile the video, or is it from the internet?

It will not prove anything to play it in 2 different media players, it will be more of a media player test than a video test.

Instead to verify that the video works well you can play it in an Advanced Media Player such as
Media Player Classic:
http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/

In the Menu Bar -> View -> Statistics

This will show you the performance of the video:
If while encoding you set the Frame Rate at 25 FPS, it should not drop below 23 FPS
And if the video is having any playback problems you will see dropped frames
also the Jitter value must remain below 15 ms, this means the video is playing smoothly.

Hi,

Thanks for the great advice. Is that any other media player besides this? Intent to check other meta-data as well like sampling rate,ratio, etc.
