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.

"This contains a virus, DO NOT USE"

February 07, 2016  |  By Screamin Eagle Fatty

2016-02-07 02:33:33  |  By Screamin Eagle Fatty

 |  Version: KMPlayer 4.0.1.5

Pros

None. It never worked, and only saw endless advertisements.

Cons

It changed my homepage, installed unneeded programs, let alone never playing a video. It was redirecting my searches, so i look at my new home page address. It was Searchinterneat-a.akamaihd (dot) net now. Research it yourself, its a nasty little browser hijacker that will take you about an hour to get rid of.

Summary

If you are unfortunate enough to download this because you trusted CNET like I did, then I feel for you. I will be more careful and read the reviews next time as well as research myself. It took me a bit over an hour, following five steps, and it did take all five steps including the optional one to remove the virus in this program. Check them youself, but i used the information from Stelian Pilici on Malwaretips (dot) com about the virus to get rid of it. Research it yourself, hopefully it works as well for others as it did for me. I ended up using VLC media player, which has worked well.

"Used to be good, now littered with ads and popups"

February 01, 2016  |  By JsaKim

 |  Version: KMPlayer 4.0.1.5

Pros

It is an extremely easy to use app that can play music seamlessly.

Cons

After the recent updates, this app is now has so many ads on the video player and will also give out some popup ads from time to time which makes it very annoying.

Summary

Find another alternative media player, it's not as good as it used to be.

"cannot even play AVi files aymore"

November 09, 2015  |  By 50mgtramadol

2015-11-09 16:30:26  |  By 50mgtramadol

 |  Version: KMPlayer 4.0.1.5

Pros

this is not your old good kmplayer anymore

Cons

their support forum doesnt register/post anymore

Summary

Let me start that I was using KmPlayer for years and was able to play all kind of files that Windows could not.
Today I started and AVi file with AC3 sound and it plays fine in XBOX video which is an app in Windows 8 on this same computer but in KMPlayer there is no frigging sound. No matter what you do with filters. Just no sound period. pissed!
now update was available and having tried to update Windows defender detects it as malware and blocks it. I disable defender and install the update - it messes up with my Chrome browser installing a 3rd party search engine and changes the home page. And still no sound.
Nice work Kmplayer fukkin junkies, thanks! Your product used to be good like 5 years back, but not anymore. Shove your player up your fricking ****** behinds squint your fricking eyes even more and fix your product , ok?

Tried to complain on their support forum, and it is not possible to register/post new topics
