AK-Player

CNET Editors' review

AK-Player is a media player designed to allow offline viewing of streaming video files (such as those on YouTube). By moving the streaming video feed from a temporary area to a regular folder, AK-Player essentially lets you download, save, and replay streaming video any time you want (something most Windows video players can't do, as they don't support the streaming video formats). The application installs easily.

The AK-Player interface is clean and easy to work with. A nice feature of AK-Player is the capability to trigger a search on your drives for videos that may be saved in temporary or permanent locations. AK-Player also supports playback of more than one video at a time, allowing you to arrange several windows playing simultaneously, each with their own playback controls and volume. We found this feature quite neat, as it allowed us to compare video feeds and camera angles. By supporting a wide number of video formats, AK-Player supported every streaming video feed we could find on the Web.

AK-Player worked well for us. Although most people will use it for YouTube, it worked on every site we tried that offered streaming videos. While some other video playback utilities allow you to save a streaming file locally, AK-Player has some features they lacked. If you like streaming videos and want better control and access to them, AK-Player is a solid, reliable application.

    "I have been looking for this"

    November 3, 2012  |   By sara_tomy

    Version: AK-Player 7.0

    Pros

    I have been looking for a software that can open many videos simultaneously.

    I like watching videos and I share the videos with my friends but the problem was when I use my friend's external hard drive I spend long time to find the videos that interest me before I copy it on my computer.

    The good thing about this free media player it that it let me search in any hard drive for videos and get all the videos and I click open 4 time and the program will open 4 different screes then I go to the program play list and go to any file in the list which is really interesting feature to open many videos at the same time.

    finally when I like any video I just right click on the file on the playlist and copy it to my hard drive.

    what I really love it's completely free

    Cons

    no cons yet

    Summary

    make it easy for me to open many videos on screen simultaneously.

    "Fishy....."

    May 14, 2012  |   By nickrusso

    Version: AK-Player 7.0

    Pros

    .....free?

    Cons

    looks like a con job

    Summary

    Before you can setup, it insists you install their download manager so you can download .Net. Guess what? I already have that version of .Net installed.

    I suspect adware or spyware.
