Editors' Review

+

Media files come in a lot of formats, and it's not always easy to find a program that can handle all of them. As the name implies, AllPlayer purports to be able to handle a wide variety of different audio and video formats, even obscure ones with little support. Although the program works, it's not without a catch.

AllPlayer's interface is sleek and attractive, with several skins to choose from. A series of buttons across the bottom provides the typical media player controls. We played several common types of audio and video files, including a DVD, with no problem, but when we tried one of the less-common file types, we ran into problems. Although AllPlayer's documentation states that it supports FLV files, when we tried to play one the program told us that we didn't have the appropriate codec and then tried to get us to pay $3 to get it. Some of the program's other features aren't entirely clear, either; although there's a function for creating playlists, when we tried to create one it wasn't obvious how we were supposed to actually add files to it (answer: drag and drop). There's no Help file, so if users have questions about any of AllPlayer's features, they're out of luck. We did like that the program lets users import subtitles and movie information from several sources. Overall, we liked AllPlayer, but users shouldn't expect it to solve all their media-playing problems, at least not without possibly ponying up a few dollars for the appropriate codecs.

AllPlayer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Plays HD movies and many file formats"

February 04, 2012  |  By Scripter1

 |  Version: ALLPlayer 5.0.5

Pros

Plays many video formats.

Cons

Few antiviruses gives false alarms and interrupts installation.

Summary

Need to disable antivirus/firewall/internet security software before install and need to add program to exceptions and exclusions list.
Can use system codecs but works better with codecs from liveupdate service.
Basic codecs are in installer but for playing more formats more codecs are needed.
