    "Well featured video player"

    August 16, 2010  |   By GuardianAngel42


    Good feature set: Audio-Video resynchronization, screenshot ability, color adjustments, and several fun things like cropping and color modification

    Captures video (not tested by me), wide file format support, and good playback


    Poor in-app media navigation, must go through Windows explorer in order to access media (fine for video, very poor for music)

    Generally complex for the average user


    I enjoy having settings to pour through. I like having the option to change almost anything I want. I love this program for VIDEOS, not music. I use Windows Explorer from the get go instead of navigating through the drop down menus so its use of the drop down menus doesn't affect me. If you are the type of person who is easily overwhelmed by excessive menus, choose this program with care.
