Editors' Review

Video technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, and it's no wonder that high-definition video is growing in popularity. The crystal-clear picture it provides is often stunningly life-like. Splash Lite is a sleek application that lets users view a variety of high-definition video formats that can't be handled by the average media player.

The program's interface is attractive and well-designed, with a menu that appears only when moused over. Using Splash Lite is as easy as using any other media player--the user simply opens the file they want to view, and Splash Lite plays it beautifully. The program supports a variety of video formats, including AVI, MKV, MOV, M2TS, MTS, M2T, MP4, MPG, TS, and also has options for handling subtitles and adjusting audio and video settings. Slash Lite can even be used with a TV tuner to view HD broadcast television. The program comes with a PDF Quick Start guide that is well-written and thorough, walking users through each of the program's features. Overall, we found Splash Lite quite easy to use, and we were impressed with the features and options that it offered. We think this program is a great choice for anyone who needs a simple way to view high-definition video files; beginners will appreciate its intuitive design, and more advanced users will find settings that allow them to customize their experience.

Splash Lite is free. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

"installer contains virus"

February 15, 2014  |  By multi-timm

 |  Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

Pros

I have not tried the product - it was quarantined and removed by my anti-virus (Kingsoft).

Cons

apparently, the installer contains a virus. whether it's a pure virus or spyware or malware I do not know, but my frontline defence Kingsoft anti-virus identified it as containing a virus and removed the file.

Summary

if the creators do not have malware contained in the program or in the installer, they should re-compile the code to avoid false-positives. but the fact that other reviewers are reporting problems, I'm erring on the side of caution and not touching this, as there are other codec packs and media players to choose from.

""Do Search" browser hijacker installs with program"

December 20, 2013  |  By yorklab

 |  Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

Pros

Can play almost any file and looks great.

Cons

Comes with malware

Summary

Used to be my go to player. When I updated to the latest version I had lots of malware to deal with; the "Do Search" browser hijacker being the most annoying. I can no longer recommend this player.

"DANGER! DANGER! DANGER! INSTALLS VIRUSES!"

November 05, 2013  |  By Impartial-Tester

 |  Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

Pros

None, unless you are looking for a great way to ruin a brand new computer.

Cons

Yesterday, I decided to install the Splash Lite video player. I downloaded it directly from the Mirillis.com home page.

During the install, the default was to install Yahoo Toolbar and a host of other bloatware stuff. I unchecked these boxes and continued with the install. Next, the installer installed Yahoo Toolbar anyways along with a ton of other viruses, web browser hijackers, web browser pop ups, etc.

In particular, it installed the "Do Search" browser hijacker which took me all night to get off my machine. What a pain!

Their old version of Splash Lite was pretty good, but stay away from the new version, unless you enjoy having all this junk installed on your computer without your consent.

Summary

The new version of this software is junk. Personally, I stay away from any company like Mirillis Ltd that depends on installing viruses, bloatware, and malware on people's computers as a way to make money.

"Amazing video quality but room for improvement"

October 22, 2013  |  By merwin20

 |  Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

Pros

1. Cool user interface.
2. Crystal clear picture quality.
3. Low usage of RAM.
4. Very stable.
5. Can be used for smart television viewing with a little tweaking.
6. EcoMode.

Cons

1. Lots of options don't work. We need to go for the pro-version for them to work.
2. At times older formats like rmvb, avi. etc., don't play.

Summary

Splash Lite is one of the coolest looking media players ever. But don't just fall for the looks, beacuse coupled with the looks are amazing audio/video quality. It claims to play hi-def videos with great clarity, without losing frames or slowing down the system and it delivers on its promises.

There is something called EcoMode that allows us to use Splash Lite on a laptop by saving battery life, reducing display brightness and power consumption.

"DO NOT INSTALL THIS BROWSER HIJACKER!!"

June 15, 2013  |  By kssagar

 |  Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

Pros

There are no positives in installing this application.

Cons

This application will hijack all your browsers and redirect search engines to point to search.us.com.
I really wonder why CNET is risking their reputation by hosting these malware applications?
For CNET folks, now that my system is corrupted by downloading this app, can you also point me to an app which will remove the adware/malware installed by this application.

Summary

If you dont want to have sleepless nights, PLEASE DON'T INSTALL THIS APPLICATION!!!!
