Editors' Review

+
This free program delivers the basics for playing back audio and video files, but we wish it were both more flexible and more feature-rich. FastStone Player's main window turns out to be a mixed bag. On one hand, we appreciate its attractive, skinnable design and large viewing window for watching video files. However, we don't like its system for queueing up tracks or clips, as it can only play files within a folder you browse to. This means you can't simply create a playlist from different artists unless all your media is located in one folder. You can choose to play files at random within a folder, and you'll find an interesting tool for watching videos in slow motion. Still, we missed features such as an equalizer, visualizations, and the ability to play or rip CDs. FastStone Player might make a decent pick for greenhorns who don't want to be distracted by numerous features, but we don't think others will find much to get excited about.

    "The faststone way"

    September 15, 2007   |   By playtom

    Version: FastStone Player 3.2

    Pros

    I've always been a fan of faststone programs, and this one certainly didn't let me down. Saved me alot of time, the slow-motion is one of my favorites. If you're looking for a basic along decent features, Faststone Player should certainly be taken into consideration.

    Cons

    Outdated now. Can't quite keep up with the tide.

    "Very handy cute player"

    June 01, 2005   |   By 95616davis

    Version: FastStone Player 3.2

    Pros

    This one works great. I don't know why other guys complained so much. It saves me a lot of effort of opening different players for different tpyes of media files. Plus, it has a slow motion button very handy to watch sports match (for me, the martial arts videos).

    Zoomplayer is good too, but the interface is not intuitive and you have to dig into it to find what you want.

    I enjoy it very much!

    Cons

    Although it uses a static picture on the video window when you listen to mp3 files, it's not a problem to me.

    "Solid, but CANNOT play Real Media by default."

    April 12, 2005   |   By Ignotus

    Version: FastStone Player 3.2

    Pros

    The product has a clean interface, and I generally like most of the other FastStone products. They are free, clean, skinnable, and spyware/addware free.

    Cons

    I downloaded this player specifically to play Real Media (.rm) files without having to install the Real Media player. When I tried to play a Real Media file, I received a popup stating that the Real Player is required to play Real Media files. I despise the Real Player, but that's for a different discussion.

    "awesome is not a word that i would use for this player"

    April 11, 2005   |   By martin4448

    Version: FastStone Player 3.2

    Pros

    i found nothing good to say about this player.

    Cons

    messed up my pc.after downloading this player everything played back in black & white. i tried to start my pc in the last good configuration twice to try to sort it out and when that failed i removed the player which cured the problem. my advice is to keep well away.
