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.

"I am very impressed with this player"

March 30, 2011  |  By RUupTOit

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.4.1437

Pros

The main things that impress me are the full screen (stretch) fuction that actually does fill my entire screen with the movie and the preferences window that allows me to activate and adjust a multitude of features

Cons

none that i have found

Summary

I have many Audio and video players that I use based on what I am viewing or listening to.

Audio Review. I do a lot of audio editing. Athough the KMPlayer does not give me the option of recording what it puts out, I can add reverb, equalizer etc to my songs and get an idea of where to make changes with my editing programs.

Video review. I have not encountered a video file that KMPlayer cannot open. I download videos that Windows Media Player, VideoLan, Divx... cannot open. This player has opened them all. Even 2 that windows said were currupted. I really do like this one.

"Best player out there!!!"

March 26, 2011  |  By searley99

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.4.1437

Pros

It's a close race between KMPlayer and VLC. KMPlayer comes out on top because I have had a problem sometimes with VLC getting half way through playing a ripped DVD and the picture starts shaking, then I can play the same file in KMP and it is fine.

Cons

Sometimes i would like LESS options to choose from... esp as regards captions.

Summary

Too bad I paid a good $30.00 dollars for "Zoom Player" pro a couple years back. It doesn't even come close to these free players.

"My anti-virus program F-Prot tells me this is malware"

March 21, 2011  |  By 1pogo1

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.4.1437

Pros

F-prot won't let me open it.

Cons

F-prot won't let me open it.

Summary

I receive the message: W32/MalwareF.FFMJ. The file is quarantined and even if I turn off F-prot, Spybot search and Destroy won't let me open it

"A great multimedia player for most types of files"

March 19, 2011  |  By Andrew932

 |  Version: The KMPlayer 2.9.4.1437

Pros

Great interface
Many options
Plays 720p and 1080p videos well

Cons

There are none

Summary

Ignore the negative comments at the bottom, they are from either another company or someone trying desperately to bring the rating down.

This is by far the best media player out there.
