Editors' Review

+

Despite lacking a Help file, KMPlayer is one of the most powerful freeware video players we've seen. It includes a vast array of video- and audio-capturing options, as well as skins, a plethora of playback controls and tweaks, and broad DVD support.

You'll have to learn the ropes yourself, perhaps a hindrance to newcomers. But if you're familiar with where things ought to be in programs, and willing to patiently wait for mouse-over labels to pop up and then click on them for the actual menus, KMPlayer has the potential to be immensely rewarding. It supports all major file formats, and all of the minor and obscure ones we tested. It did have problems with the RealPlayer 11's video capture IVR format, but not much else.

Advanced options include frame capture and a frame-forward feature, which is actually a fractional Play button, but the difference is negligible. The Pause button is a fast responder, too. Combined with streaming TV and HDTV compatibility, playlists, and the ability to select which codec is used on a video-by-video basis, and you get a media player that demands attention.

"Needs a lot of work"

May 21, 2008  |  By Kevy_MT

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.3.1430 beta

Pros

I originally got The KMPlayer to view DVD movies on my computer, download size was fair, installation was quite easy.

Cons

Once The KMPlayer was installed on my computer, I tried viewing a DVD on it, I selected the "Full screen" option (there are something like 4 different full screen options) and it went to full screen, but it also really messed with my desktop. Not only that, once in full screen, the player totally closed! However, the DVD movie kept playing on my system... I could hear it going on, but I could not see anything other than my blank desktop (wallpaper was gone, even the desktop icons were missing). I managed to stop the movie playing by opening a new window of The KMPlayer and selecting the DVD movie playing in my system, I then stopped the movie and it shut down the audio that was playing. I found the preferences window to be very small in text size making it very difficult (at least for me) to read. The multiple full screen options were very confusing as well. I gave this program 3 stars, only because of the ease of installation and size of the download. Some people may find this program fairly good, I could not find much good about this program.

"My favorite player."

May 20, 2008  |  By alexjustdoit

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.3.1430 beta

Pros

Stylish, great looks, many settings. Has all the codecs I have ever needed pre-installed.

Cons

I like pretty much everything but I wish there was a main interface kind of like in iTunes or Winamp where you can just select a file.

"It's an easy program to use and run."

May 19, 2008  |  By charlisabunny

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.3.1430 beta

Pros

I've not had any glitches or problems with it on my computer as I did the AVS Player. I've had to reinstall the AVS Player so many times, I gave up on it. The KM Player seems to load faster, and is a no hassel program to use.

Cons

I didn't find anything about it that I didn't like.
