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.
AK-Player is a completely free media player download which allows you to watch any streaming video files from sites such as YouTube offline. When you watch a movie file over such a website, the stream is saved to your temporary Internet files folder which is usually hidden and hard to access. Not only that; most media players do not support the streaming media formats anyway. AK-Player, on the other hand, will search through every folder on your computer, including hidden and system folders and allow you to play these files offline without having to waste bandwidth by streaming them every time you want to watch them. AK-Player also supports almost every other media format out there. You can play multiple video files simultaneously, altering volume controls individually for each open window. The free media player download provides many unique features as well as a user friendly and intuitive 3D interface.
