Media Revolution

CNET Editors' review

Media Revolution provides all the necessary elements for viewing and listening to any media file type, all together in one program. With a cool design and a little more to offer than the competition, this is a great tool for media junkies.

The program's interface is a treat to navigate, with clear command icons and intuitive organization. This was fortunate, because the Help file lacks anything resembling instructions. Nevertheless, we were able to swiftly jump between our audio and video files, all of which were displayed onscreen, and utilize them without any effort. Our audio files sounded crisp when played, and the video files were presented in a clear fashion, thanks to the program's large display. Media Revolution handles a variety of file types with ease and speed, including MP3s, MP4s, and WAVs. We love how Media Revolution provides a series of special features aimed at covering every conceivable media outlet. Not only could we watch DVDs with it, but also listen to dozens of different streaming radio stations. These features helped vault Media Revolution past several other programs that perform the same basic functions but offer less overall.

Media Revolution has a 30-day trial. We were pleased with this sleek program and its variety of entertainment options. Its ability to offer a little more than other media players makes this a program we recommend.

    "Its easier than you think"

    June 17, 2011  |   By Cylence

    Version: Media Revolution 3.5.4

    Pros

    It can do almost everything what any Video or Audio Player needs.
    It has All possible needed DSPs for chaning Audio and Video
    The intelligent Random is like you have your own tv sender

    Cons

    no problems or cons found

    Summary

    What did you guys doing with this player, to add titles simply drag and drop a folder or some tites into the player, or where youve found the next Folder button, below this is a ig ADD Button, click on it and there Add Folders or Add Titles .... Is really a Pro needed for this?
    Also you can move your mouse to the left monitor side, and there wait until the Playlist is slided in, and there is also a ADD Button and much more, and you can also drag files here.
    The inteligent Random function did play like you have your own tv sender. I dont have any tv since ive using MEDIA Revolution.
    Perfect PC for this Player has multiple Monitors, i have one MIMO USB mini Monitor on my Desk, wheres the Sidebar / Playist and the Deskdisplay from MEDIA Revolution, and on one 47 Inch LCD in Front, theres the Videowindow of MR.
    Its the only Player which can do this in this way. Its the perfect MEDIA Center. I dont have any DVDPlayer or something else since using it.
    If you have Audiodelay or something like that, you can fast change it with rightclicking on the Audio Button in the Videowindow, or below DSP. Every Delay is saved into the Playist, so when you play the title again, the Delay is already set.
    MEDIA Revolution can start your PC to a desired Time from Hibernate or Standby. With this function you can Wake up with your Favourite Song or Video.
    The intelligent Random has some Addiotnal functions like the TV Mode, with this you can set prefered Genres for every day and time, example, every Friday at 22 o Clock Play X-Files and something like that. No other Players did have such a feature like i now.
    With the Search function you can also Search for similiar Titles, and this function shows you also which of these similiar titles you already have in your playlist. This is powered by Tastekid.com
    The DVR can also record Webstreams, if you have the url of it.
    The DVDPlayer can make Bookmarks, and also have all DSPs for Audio like the MediaPlayer has.
    The Playist is extremey fast, sorting 60000 titles does only need ap. 5 seconds. It saves much more infs than only the title, also the kind of file, codec, resolution, quality, a memo for your own text to this file and much more.
    You can build as much Playlists and also Favouriteslists as you want to. When youre moving the mouse on the Speaker or Eye icon in the Playlist or Favourites or also in the Treeview, you can Preview/or hear the fies with an internal secondary Preview Player, and also play it within the DVR.
    The Playlist is also available as an Treeview, where you can find much fast what youre searching for, if you have sorted your files within Folders. Here you can also search for new Files in Folders, or you can make Hardlinks/Softlinks and Folderjunctions, This Tool is also possible from within the Sidebar, which has some more usefull Tools.
    Theres so much more what you can do with MEDIA Revolution and its so much more easier than you think. Its the only Usefull Player for Extremely Massive Media Collections.
    I Love it!

    sorry for some write errors, my keyboard makes problems here... *grrr*

    Updated on Jun 17, 2011

    The Player also is possible to use Soundgraph Remote Control and some Pearl USB Remotes.
    It has also one addition internal DJ Player which can Crossfade between Mediaplayer / DVDPlayer / DJPlayer / DVR
    There are functions for Shutting down after Title / Playlist / a number of titles or a desired Time.
    When playing Audiofiles theres a Automatic Crossfader possible.
    You can use Third party Filters like Sony denoise, alparysoft, iuLab and much more.
    When moving the mouse in the Pllaylist / Favlist/ Treeview to the CoverIcon, you see a big version of the Cover.
    You can Click Pause stop and Next also in the Icon in the DesktopDisplay on the Right bottom. The Sidebar and Playlist can be Switched to different monitors for Multimonitor Systems.

    "Worst...interface...ever."

    April 7, 2011  |   By gallowayk

    Version: Media Revolution 3.4.5

    Pros

    I honestly couldn't find any pros, perhaps the DVR function? Yeah, we'll call that a pro, just to be nice since there aren't any others.

    Cons

    Completely unusable interface. I could not find a way to browse to my own media files, there were only next track / next folder and previous track / previous folder options. I wonder if you can even browse to anything recorded via the DVR? Useless.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time. All you will have to look forward to is an ugly, useless, unusable interface. Oh, and the awesome samples, which you better like since you can't listen to anything else. Unless of course you open your own file by double-clicking if file types are associated with this piece of drivel, because that's the only way to get this thing to open your own files. From that point you can browse by going forward or backward through tracks or folders. It might be able to play CDs or DVDs but I didn't try it on those since I keep my media files on my hard drive (as do most people anymore), and if this thing can't properly browse those then it's useless.

    IT IS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND THE DEVELOPERS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY EMBARRASSED TO HAVE RELEASED IT.

    "Trial version good for only 30 days"

    March 30, 2011  |   By mincage

    Version: Media Revolution 3.4.2

    Pros

    The radio player was the only usable part of this download

    Cons

    There were 4 windows I could access, one was in German. No easy way to figure out how to play files. Only radio was bearable.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time unless your an IT pro and can figure out how to use it.
