"It does the job"

August 04, 2009  |  By GamerKing

 |  Version: Haihaisoft Universal Player 1.4.0

Pros

I guess I may not be very demanding, but this player does everything I want--especially when the cost is FREE!

Cons

The only con I can think of is it's rather silly name -- difficult to say, difficult to remember -- so they won't be getting people recommending it!

"Better alternatives out there."

May 13, 2009  |  By rosenbergs

 |  Version: Haihaisoft Universal Player 1.3.3.0

Pros

Plays AVIs, which is what I needed it to do.

Cons

Very bulky program. (Alternatives like VLC, GOMPlayer, KMPlayer do not have extra codec packs.)
Both this version and previous version leave garbage behind when uninstalled.

Summary

So leaving behind the Klite codec pack installed gave me no way of getting in to deactive AVI Chunk. I found a workaround, which was to download the K-Lite codec pack (do a search for it and it will come up), then installing it into the HaiHaiSoft Universal Player/codec folder. Afterwards, you can uninstall the K-Lite codec pack from control panel, then uninstall the player from there as well. It will still leave an annoying Program Files folder behind, but just delete it without too much worries and use a registry cleaner to fix everything up.

Haihaisoft has chosen to make a functioning albeit malfunctioning program. If you never plan to uninstall it or have the K-Lite codec pack installed already, go ahead and download. Otherwise I suggest you move toward alternatives as I listen above.

"Does what it says, but not worth the hassle."

May 13, 2009  |  By rosenbergs

 |  Version: Haihaisoft Universal Player 1.2.2.0

Pros

Has a lot of codecs, so plays most of the files you will need.

Cons

Has a lot of codecs, most of which you don't need.
Does not uninstall properly.
Looks just like a weak version of windows media player.

Summary

If you are thinking you need this player, then just stick with VLC, GOMPlayer, or KMPlayer. They do not need the extended hassle of downloading codec packs and will uninstall as you wish it to!
