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.

"full of malware, trash"

June 03, 2015  |  By Miranda Burnett

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.9.1.136

Pros

Frame extraction unlike any other program; tons of video/audio preferences

Cons

FULL of malware/adware/general crapware that you can't uncheck upon installation; forums are down; even Chrome and any virus program will tag this as full of malware.

Summary

Awful, awful, awful. KMPlayer was once my go-to player for every situation, but particularly when I needed to use the frame extraction function... it broke and I had to update, to find myself with a computer full of trash, even after I unchecked a few crapware programs during installation. The browser hijackers weren't even the worst part, but even they malfunctioned when trying to install themselves and screwed up my entire Chrome installation. Horrible.
