Editors' Review

+

UMPlayer makes viewing videos and listening to audio much easier with its all-in-one media player. The attractive design and various tools perform in a comparable fashion to other free software, but the app does have some issues.

Pros

Useful features: UMPlayer easily played various media files on our PC, and the built-in Shoutcast application worked perfectly when activated. The audio and visual customization tools functioned fine as well, despite a minor delay of a half-second when changing properties during playback.

Understandable layout: All icons and menu options are easy to interpret, so you will find no confusion when using this software. The dark color scheme draws attention to videos in an attractive manner.

Cons

Missing functions: YouTube streaming and recording did not work during our tests, and we could not play videos by URL, either. Despite stating that it supports CDA codecs, UMPlayer did not recognize any audio CDs in our disk drive.

Poor DVD playback: Compared to other video players, UMPlayer lagged during DVD playback, often freezing and restarting the video file. The DVD menu was inaccessible as well.

Bottom Line

UMPlayer is an acceptable media player that has a lot more potential. For now, some of the missing features and playback issues may be too big of a trade-off for most users.

"Great media player"

September 09, 2015  |  By nmweatherman

2015-09-09 15:08:42  |  By nmweatherman

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

This media player is almost perfect

Cons

I have two gripes

Summary

The UM Player has a very classy UI and has additional skins. It played all my media with only two complaints from me. One is the equalizer...it is very difficult to use, with the music responding very poorly to settings. And my only other complaint is that the tune begins all over again every time you change a setting. That gets old. I also found it rather difficult to adjust color on videos. I can live with this I guess because I really like UM's UI and otherwise full compliment of features.

"Best Video Player, Period!"

June 13, 2015

2015-06-13 14:19:08

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

Plays all types of video files, No longer need to download codec.

Cons

None known

Summary

Been using this for the past 5 years, I was tired of having to download all types of codec and I was looking for one video player to play every type of video file out there. I have tried & used most all of them... (Including GOM Player which is ranked #1 by C-net) And hands down in my opinion ... UM Player is by far the best... ;)
