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.

"The only Video file player I use."

November 21, 2014  |  By Rateara

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.130

Pros

Plays everything flawlessly on PC and Android.
-With KM connect I can watch Anime or K-dramas on my Android that are in my PC while my PC is in uses my someone else! So no need to waste space in my Smart phone or tablet.
Perfectly clean. =)

Cons

The KM box that comes on the side of KMplayer.
nothing else... If you install carefully and READ before you install it will be all fine.
"no point of installing this one.
you will regret." -This is incorrect! Only people who RUSH INSTALL may regret.
If you can read you will be fine. and the option to uninstall toolbars and software is always there... -_^

Summary

The installer may come with options to install other software or search toolbars.
READ and press DECLINE, SKIP and remember to UN-TICK check boxes on options to install added software/toolbars and you will be fine. ^_^
You will get KMplayer itself with no surprises.

"Warning! Lots of Malware!"

November 10, 2014  |  By svgtom

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.130

Pros

Player can play lots of files.

Cons

You get unexpected gifts.

Summary

As another user mentioned, it includes a lot of unwanted programs. I also declined everything when I did the installation and I thought all was fine. The next day shortly after I booted up I got a message that a program was installed (something like OneShopPayDay). I then got pop ups asking for permission to install other programs such as registry cleaners.

At this point Norton started flagging stuff and also prevented a download. Further inspection revealed that something called Groovorio ( a browser hijacker) was also installed without my permission. Between Norton and MalwareBytes I was able to get rid of everything. At least I hope it's all gone.

Oh, and I also uninstalled the KMPlayer.
