Editors' Review

+

KMPlayer has evolved from a video player to a leading source for content discovery. The app's record-breaking viewership and the use of its flagship media is most visible on the gaming front, with a successful casting of Season 3 of the League of Legends World Championship. Alongside other forays into e-sports, like GOM and Starcraft 2: Hearts of the Swarm, KMPlayer has established strong viewership that's created a whole new layer of interaction beyond being a standalone video player.

Pros

Unobtrusive layout:Dark colors and a pop-out settings menu give you clean, uninterrupted access to features like subtitle management, brightness/contrast adjustments, and frame captures.

Full video codec support: Similar to video players like VLC and GOM, KMPlayer is a universal media player that can tackle just about any format you throw at it.

Mobile compatibility: KMPlayer's companion app works with the desktop player. You can stream local videos to your mobile device via Wi-Fi if you have the Connect app installed on Android or iOS.

Cons

Display heavy: KMPlayer is not a standalone video player, so it encourages content discovery via partnerships with some third-party apps. The result is a preview-heavy player that throws ads and links at you constantly.

Bundled apps: KMPlayer contains bundled apps. If you're not careful, you could install browser add-ons unintentionally.

Bottom Line

KMPlayer remains a solid video player, but it's also become a specialized player aiming for a particular audience. Some viewers will see its offerings as premium content; others will find the bundling a distraction or a nuisance. While the video player may have universal support and a bit of something for everyone, those looking for a more lightweight player should look elsewhere. The addition of mobile playback adds incentive if you're looking for ways to play movies without worrying about formats and storage on Android and iOS.

"used to be my ONLY player"

January 14, 2015  |  By gnjuss

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.132

Pros

slick, simple, the last player you'll ever need

Cons

no more DTS AC3 codecs people, you'll have to buy them... Which means that the player that used to play everything, now won't play anything.

Summary

don't waste your time, until the DTS codec problem is resolved, DO NOT download

"Has Gotten Better"

January 07, 2015  |  By Rateara

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.132

Pros

This update has got rid of the side box thing it use to have,which is way better!

Will do what it is meant to do.
Will link to smart phone so you can watch videos in your pc.

Cons

The cons are all gone, since the side box is gone.
(by the way KM runs in the background so KM connect will work if you choose to link to phone. Not spying =_=.,.. honestly people. I wonder if people are getting to paranoid these days.)
As for the other stuff... You installed them yourself. Read and Skip, Un-tick or Decline and always select custom install. This is the same for every other installer these days now full of unwanted stuff. Review KM player not the stuff to failed to Decline while you installed KMplayer. Because thats you fault.

Summary

Keeper for everyday video format watching.
Simple and easy.
