    "Decent Player absolutely no viruses"

    November 28, 2014  |   By lightless

    Version: Splash Lite 1.8.2

    Pros

    It doesn't contain any viruses. It doesn't even offer to install third party software. It's the cleanest possible installation. I can't understand the fake reviewers, shame on you. Very easy options dialog.

    Cons

    Some important customizations are missing like custom shortcuts etc

    Summary

    It plays all video files. It doesn't contain any malware.

    "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 5, 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!!!!
