Baka MPlayer (32-bit) sets itself apart from other similar programs with extensive built-in support for most video and audio extensions, freeing you from the annoying process of finding the right codecs to download before you can play your media.
Extensive codec support: Baka MPlayer plays all the popular video and audio formats without any problems.
Ingenious voice recognition feature: The app features a voice recognition feature that accepts basic commands like "pause" and "decrease volume" when spoken into your microphone, which is an intriguing addition for a basic media player.
Seamless subtitles integration: If a subtitle file is in the same folder as the video you are playing, the subtitles will automatically be displayed.
Unpolished interface: Though easy to use, the interface could do with a little more polish, particularly the "Play" button and the volume slider, which look clunky and out of place among the sleek black and electric blue visual scheme.
Slow voice recognition: We would like to see some more development with the voice recognition system, which often couldn't understand our directions so that it was usually faster to issue commands the old-fashioned way with mouse and cursor. However, as the feature is still in beta, this was to be expected.
Even though there are many multimedia players out there, Baka MPlayer won't disappoint you. While it may lack the polish of better-known apps like VLC media player, this player has everything you need to enjoy your videos and music.
Baka MPlayer is a free and open source, mpv (formerly mplayer2/MPlayer) based multimedia player. It's simple design reflects the idea for an uncluttered, simple, and enjoyable environment for watching anime. It also supports opening Youtube videos (through mpv), is portable, and has support for voice commands (in beta).
