    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    Good for playing HD video on low performance systems (netbooks, nettops)

    Cons

    Crashing constantly, instable

    Summary

    Fast video-player for HD content on budget systems (netbooks, nettops) with VERY simple interface. Hardware accelerating. Big minus is instability in Windows 7, I tried to use them on 2 clear just installed OS and it's crashed on start or after playing video.

    July 22, 2012  |  

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    Cudn't see one.

    Cons

    barely escaped formatting. Tried to install all sorts of junk during set-up. Never worked, always froze. Even when npt running, de-stabilezed my system. COuldn't uninstall and get rid of remnants even with forced uninstall, all sorts of cleaning program. Had to do it manually at the end. Stay away

    Summary

    Worst program I downloaded from CNET

    "won't play entire dvds"

    June 22, 2012  |   By Itchyhobo

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    very nice looking interface.
    very good sound and very nice picture.
    plays all my converted dvds.
    so far it has played all the random vid files i have collected over the years.

    Cons

    i can't get it to play whole dvds. i will play with it some more, but so far i can only play individual .vob files.

    Summary

    to play entire dvds, i think you have to pay for the upgraded version. not a bad player and it looks great with my converted files, but i wanted a dvd player....

    i really wanted to love this player, but not being able to play whole dvd (i am trying to watching various tv series) makes me sad.

    "very limited functions unless you buy PRO"

    April 7, 2012  |   By MeanGenius

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    1 - it actually works
    2 - sound is better than KMplayer
    3 - GUI is great, best I've ever seen for a media player
    4 - TV tuner function (only in PRO)
    5 - only 13 megabytes

    Cons

    1 - you really can't evaluate the software fully unless you buy PRO

    Summary

    A beautiful well organized interface, plays well, good sound, and it will probably only get better - as long as they keep it simple.

    "VLC Downhill, traded up and found splash"

    March 15, 2012  |   By MasterAilan

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    I have only used it for 1080p playback but here are its benefits for me
    GPU Decoding - Great for HTPCs that have onboard ATI and really cuts down on the CPU usage
    NO TEARING... VLC had a huge problem with tearing on HD files, no longer the case
    Easy to use keyboard controls and mouse - similar to VLC so it was an easy switch
    Ultrasmooth playback, has some nice options as well.
    7.1 surround sound audio support on the EX version!

    Cons

    I can't really see any as of now. Some users have mentioned problems playing certain files but I haven't run into this issue. The playback is much better than VLC.

    Summary

    I would suggest that anyone who has switched over to high def files that they take a swing at splash player, I'm certainly loving it.

    "Very fine but small bugs ruin the program."

    December 4, 2011  |   By ArkIgnus

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    HD Quality.

    Cons

    Video management could have looked better.
    Media Player crashes at some video's, even sees some .AVI files as audio-only files that other video media players play normally.

    Summary

    It's a good media player, just wished the things I mentioned in the cons would not been there when I bought it.

    "Splash Lite Could Be The Best Video Player Out There"

    November 18, 2011  |   By andyseaview

    Version: Splash Lite 1.7.1

    Pros

    Splash lite video player could be the best video player you can download for your system, it has great looking video playback, the video is crisp and clear, especially if its in high def, of course if you download a video that looks bad, it wont look any better on splash lite, or any other video player for that matter, you get what you download when it comes to video, no video player out there can make a video that was recorded bad look any better. so why could it be the best video player you can get, because the splash lite video player program is what it says, LITE, like, lite in the options department, but than again, this is the free version, but even so, they could have gave you a lot more options than they do no matter that its free or not, the km video player is free and their are tons of video and audio options, but this still does not hurt the splash lite player, for what you get from the program, its all real nice, the video looks great and the gui is clean and easy to use

    Cons

    splash lite needs more video and audio options

    Summary

    Go with REALPLAYER or THE KM PLAYER, until the people behind the splash lite program add more audio and video options, but if you dont care about this than by all means download splash lite, it has the best video playback of any free video player out there
