With the bewildering number of audio and video formats available you can often find yourself wasting a lot of time looking for the right media player to play them all, and not enough time enjoying your media. Choosing a media player or codec pack that covers all of these formats and any that you may want in the future is going to save you a lot of time in the long run, so making the right choice is vital. You might want an all-in-one deal with all the trimmings and features or you may be the kind of person who wants a basic, yet customisable player. Sick of dabbling with various recommended media players I looked to an alternative option in SysPlayer and found myself pleasantly surprised.

Where the SysPlayer sets itself apart is in its simplicity and ease of use, within minutes of familiarising myself with the interface I was quite comfortable in using the software. The interface is not the most attractive but it is familiar and certainly not the worst looking player out there. I would prefer functionality to flashy design and resource consumption 9 times out of 10. It does market itself as "extremely lightweight" so you do expect it to fall into the "barebones" category mentioned earlier, in which players generally use less resources at the cost of features. However, the SysPlayer does not seem to be lacking in features and is on par in this aspect with other commonly used players.

It handled any and all audio and video formats I could throw at it and playback quality was of note. Playlist support was what is expected in a modern media player and other features seemed to work as advertised. Another massive bonus was the ability to open an entire folder of media files, as I struggle to comprehend how some popular players omit this feature. However, I was unable to get HD Blu-Ray to work with the player and I also found the Webcam support to be slightly lacking but as I do not use my webcam in any other media player it is no big issue.

While ultimately your choice of media player comes down to personal taste, I believe the SysPlayer to be a valuable option and genuine competitor. It houses all of the tools that the average user needs and most importantly is intuitive and straightforward to use, making it stand out from the alternative players that may boast a few added features but at the cost of resource usage and user friendliness.
