Editors' Review

DVDFab Media Player makes it possible to play all kinds of media on your computer, from downloaded YouTube videos to Blu-ray discs. Just add your videos, then sit back and enjoy the show.

Pros

Nice interface: DVDFab Media Player presents a clear, streamlined interface that users of all experience levels will find accessible. You can open files from your computer or from a DVD or Blu-ray, and all the videos you add will show up in a list on the right-hand side of the viewing window. When you're watching a movie, you can hide that list to increase the viewing area.

Viewing options: You can adjust the aspect ratio and set other viewing preferences right from the app's main interface, including changing skins. Choose Quick and Simple Mode to just watch your movie, or opt for Full Navigation Mode for an enhanced Blu-ray viewing experience.

Cons

Need to be connected: DVDFab Media Player requires an Internet connection to play Blu-ray discs. However, when you're not connected, you can play other media already downloaded to your computer.

Bottom Line

DVDFab Media Player is a good, comprehensive program for playing Blu-rays and other media. It gives you everything you want to maximize your viewing experience in an accessible package that makes it easy to find the features you're looking for.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of DVDFab Media Player 2.4.0.0.

"No longer free and does not play all Blu-ray disks."

August 11, 2015  |  By bsperan

 |  Version: DVDFab Free Media Player 2.5.0.3

Pros

When it works properly, it works pretty well. Video playback quality is above average.

Cons

I don't know what previous versions were like. But the current version is NOT free. Installation starts a trial period, making this "demoware." More importantly, this player will not play all Blu-ray disks. Some will not play. Or they might play the previews and show the main menu, but the movie itself will refuse to play. And even when the movie does play, the menu may not work, preventing us from taking advantage of any of the disk's features.

Also, options are quite limited for a media player. Other players like VideoLan and MPC Home Theater have a lot of options, such as being able to initiate the disk's subtitles without going through the disk's menu, or navigating straight to a certain chapter. DVDFab's player seems almost bare bones in comparison.

Summary

Especially with such flaws, a price of $65 is too much. There are better alternatives that are priced similarly or cheaper, with better features, and are far more reliable. And the fact that this isn't actually free is a huge turn-off for me.

"works as it claims"

July 31, 2015  |  By tbahang

 |  Version: DVDFab Free Media Player 2.5.0.3

Pros

Not the best video player on the Windows platform however works without a problem as it claims. Still presents some lagging issue when playing large size 4K videos. Considering the fact that 4K UHD is not mature yet, hope this player gets better and better.

Cons

None so far

"Nice, Simple and Elegant"

June 19, 2015  |  By Amyacker

 |  Version: DVDFab Free Media Player 2.5.0.3

Pros

This video player has very elegant interface designing, beautiful skins as well. But, I think it still lacks someting. Let me think, right, it's the ability to use the remote for playback control. I don't want to get up from bed each time, I want to pause and resume playing.

Cons

Suitable to me.
