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.

"Don't do it"

March 27, 2015  |  By scaanderson

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.134

Pros

There are no pros

Cons

It was a nightmare. It downloaded some kind of software to clean the computer and I could not get it off my screen. It never played my dvd and it took so long to uninstall everything it downloaded on my pc.

Summary

Save yourself a headache. It was horrible!

"KMPlayer no more, turned into a malware"

March 27, 2015  |  By chw131

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.3.0.32

Pros

Play many video/audio formats used to be a the only one choice of my video player.

Cons

Full of ads ware and malware, constant ads, and my antivirus program and chrome even blocked this app.
It is on my NO NOT USE list now.

Summary

The original developer have left and created another better player called PotPlayer. It is now the new king in the house. KMPlayer was sold to Pandora TV, the original developer left, and it has languished in a nightmare land of shoddy updates that have broken a once fine player.

"APP with strong viewership? Are you illiterate?"

March 01, 2015  |  By salesalex

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.133

Pros

It is great player 4 nothing

Cons

it is HEAVY on CPU, BLOATED, has STUPID RESTRICTIONS that pushes user toward premium upgrade so it is a scam. It still exists only thanks to its old fame when it had no competition.

Summary

I didn't know that an app could have a viewership untill I read your review. So you are saying that there are a lot of people which just install Kmplayer and watch it hanging on their computers. That is probably the most idiotic statement I have ever read on some decent site. Please CNET, stop hiring crackheads !

"INSTALLS MALWARE & HIJACK ALL THE BROWSERS"

February 20, 2015  |  By usrrnone

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.133

Pros

I'm not a tech person. Sound quality is good in this player.

Cons

it installs a malware. downloaded file from kmplayer.com site. As I notice malware installs while installer runs & through internet (installer downloads malware). I had download kmplayer updates several times. Never happened this. No I'm not a person who do not un tick check boxes to unwanted s/w.

It's webssearches which hijack the browser. FF, chrome, IE all are hijacked. It goes to that website & can't get back by changing home page. get rid from it from chrome from changing short cut target properties. Doesn't work it for FF& IE. Had to reinstall FF. IE still hijacked.

Summary

It's a shame such a well known s/w company doing this. No one will ever use such a site hijacking site. If this happen again I'll switch to more reliable player.
