Editors' Review

+

Once you get past its nightmare of an installation process, KMPlayer's sheer power and flexibility are impressive. 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.

When installing KMPlayer, be sure to keep your eyes peeled, as the process is less than straightforward. It presents a number of different jargon-filled installation options ("Extender Plus External Codec?"), an offer for a bundled Ask.com toolbar, and inexplicably another offer for a "Clean Water Action Reminder." It's also worth noting that my install experience included a prompt for me to "re-start as an admin" in order to update the app. I did this and was stuck in an eternal update loop that forced me to restart the program.

Installation issues aside, I am actually pretty impressed with the number of features KMPlayer offers. I was able to play DVDs without a hitch, and I didn't run into problems with any video file types. Also, the extensive menus include controls for brightness, contrast, hue, and so on, subtitles, screen size, aspect ratio, color, capture tools, and so much more. There's even a built-in audio equalizer and 3D playback capabilities. It's nice that there's so much packed under the hood, but it can be overwhelming if you're not completely comfortable with advanced video terminology.

With so many features, it's a shame there isn't a clear and concise Help file to get users started. Instead, the F1 Help command brings you to KMPlayer's online forum, where you are forced to sift through user-generated instructions and tips.

The bottom line is, if you are a discerning video enthusiast, looking for extreme flexibility in a video player, then KMPlayer should do the trick (once you get past the install process). On the other hand, if you're a more casual viewer looking for a simple player, then this download might be overkill.

"Great player, except for the installation..."

July 03, 2012  |  By computer10171

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.2.0.19

Pros

Great player, plays just about everything
Lots of features
Great for music
Very nice look to it

Cons

It installs some crap with it, that I uninstalled right away
For example the toolbars and a bunch of stuff for ASK. I don't remember an option not to install it. So be aware of that.

"Poor picture quality - compare to VLC"

July 02, 2012  |  By SteaknEggs95973

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.2.0.19

Pros

Lots of features

Cons

Poor picture quality - compare to VLC

Summary

I tried viewing several avi files using KMPlayer, VLC Player, and Media Player Classic - Home Cinema [my personal favorite]. In full-screen mode, KM failed to be as good quality as the other two players.
Hey, I was hoping it would be really good, but it didn't. Try comparing for yourselves.

"Outstanding"

June 26, 2012  |  By realtf

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.2.0.19

Pros

Fluidity.U can rewind-forward like bullets using the shortcut buttons(unlike vlc where it takes ages to forward and to make it quick u have to use the mouse as the shortcut keys are pathetic) and its sleek design is almost too good to be true.Plays every format.

Cons

U have to go to process to stop it when kmp is not responding.In case of other players u can just click the cross and its done.

Summary

Use it cause u'll like it.It is user friendly.And I really think there should be more KMP users.Judging by the numbers it looks like now a days people barely know how to use a computer.

"Forget this not worth getting-"

May 28, 2012  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.2.0.19

Pros

None.Not user friendly at all.

Cons

Complicated difficult to figure out how to use. Crashed several times.

Summary

I first tried KM player last year when I was looking for an alternative to Windows Media Player. But I found it was not user friendly at all,complicated to figure out how to use. Unfortunately nothing has changed since last years version, and also,when I played audio files they did not play right. KM player has some good visualisations,it is one of the few players that does. But I found the sound was not very good and the player slowed down and crashed several times. And it is so difficult to use I could not figure out the settings. With VLC player,Gom player and Windows Media Player,I don't have this problem. In Gom player there are no visualisations, but at least you can use it.In KM player I also found the visualisations made the audio sound playback wrong. That is not good. So forget KM player and go for VLC if you are looking for visualisations or Gom player.Which does not have visualisations, but works well on all versions of windows,as does VLC player.Andrea Borman.

"Perfect Player plays everything that I throw at it."

May 25, 2012  |  By munak

 |  Version: KMPlayer 3.2.0.19

Pros

Plays every format that I've introduced to it, supports 10bit videos only few players out there are able to play, multi-sub is awesome, sleek interface but for the newcomers it's a little bit awkward at first. One of my favorite features of this player is the panic mode that other players don't have. Last but not the least is the 3D mode.

Cons

The desktop mode is gone in this version of KMPlayer, well it's not completely gone but I think it's not working at the moment

Summary

Great video player it has everything you'll ever need as a standard user but also for us power-users it has an outstanding features that needs time to get used to if you've come from a different player
