Editors' Review

+

Despite lacking a Help file, KMPlayer is one of the most powerful freeware video players we've seen. It includes a vast array of video- and audio-capturing options, as well as skins, a plethora of playback controls and tweaks, and broad DVD support.

You'll have to learn the ropes yourself, perhaps a hindrance to newcomers. But if you're familiar with where things ought to be in programs, and willing to patiently wait for mouse-over labels to pop up and then click on them for the actual menus, KMPlayer has the potential to be immensely rewarding. It supports all major file formats, and all of the minor and obscure ones we tested. It did have problems with the RealPlayer 11's video capture IVR format, but not much else.

Advanced options include frame capture and a frame-forward feature, which is actually a fractional Play button, but the difference is negligible. The Pause button is a fast responder, too. Combined with streaming TV and HDTV compatibility, playlists, and the ability to select which codec is used on a video-by-video basis, and you get a media player that demands attention.

"The BEST BEST player on earth so far !"

August 17, 2009  |  By oopslikeit

 |  Version: KMPlayer 2.9.4.1434

Pros

1.Plays any video file without glitches(.mkv,.mov,etc)
2.Can do easy seeking while playing any file..(press right/left arrow). even in mkv files. no other player does it like kmplayer.
3.features are unlimited...from dead simple to very advanced one

Cons

shoutcast streaming problems

Summary

This is by far the best player i've ever seen. It plays any video files. It aslo has inbuilt codecs but the best part is you can install an external codec pack like (k-lite codec pack) and make the player use the desired codec. Subtitle support is unmatched...you can do a lot of tweaking with the subtitles in a very easy and initiutive way.

The included audio/video plugins and features help you enhance the playback of audio/video as you please. It includes a lot of features which can be found only in some specialized video players.

The audo output configuration can be changed the way you like for example dolby digital/ dolby prologic/ DTS/ 2.0/ 1.0/2.1/3.1/4.0/4.1/5.1 etc..

You can make a video wall paper using a video.. use the desktop playback mode available in options.
