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.

"It does the job"

Pros

It opened an AIFF file that my Windows Media Player claimed was a 'closed' or 'off-limits' type of file. (For the record the file was a legitimate language learning file from the Peace Corps...it wasn't porn, illegal or questionable at all)

Cons

I can't get that darn box off the screen at times.
In order to get rid of that box you have to click on the icon in the toolbar and hit "EXIT" to get rid of it.

Summary

In summary, I originally downloaded it to see if it would open the elusive AIFF file and it did. So I'll keep it on my laptop for files my WMP won't open. If it was a bit more user-friendly I'd give it 5 stars. All in all, it's a good piece of software to have.
