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.

"Download if you don't mind installing opencandy."

March 17, 2014  |  By THE TRUTH TELLER

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

Plays any video extension. Great video quality output.

Cons

Installs open candy without your permission silently in background.
For that i refuse to ever use it ever again.

Summary

Download at your own risk it's one of those programs that is very promising that comes with B.S. spyware.

"tried it, found it lacking"

October 20, 2013  |  By spyready

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

very few overall

Cons

too many to count

Summary

Promises, promises!
If anybody out there knows how to design faultless freeware which actually works right, we will be the first to applaud their efforts.
Free and working seem mutually exclusive terms here. UM is supposed to come with enough codecs to actually function in the first place. (similar claims are made by/for the others in this field) The claims listed above couldn't have been more false in our case.
Real Player came with our machine. It worked GREAT--until last month, when we began to get enough error messages to shake a stick at. UM played at about the same level--not well enough.
Some flv's don't even play using Um, whereas real Player will still play these if not the MP4's we collected on a fact finding mission.
Until somebody comes up with an actual REAL working program which really CAN play all it should be able top play, we feel certain there would be little point in trying on anything else like this one for size.
Extremely disappointing overall.

"Cool, Amazing program"

September 30, 2013  |  By micheals12

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

It has the built-in search for YouTube and even it records the video files automatically.

often it may crashes for unknown reason. At present, UM Player cannot play video files that have one or more foreign characters in their description.

"Quick and good video player"

August 19, 2013  |  By JsaKim

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

Plays every video format without any problem playing the video with sound. Downloaded this after GOM couldn't play my MKV File with sound. This one did perfectly. I think I'll make this my standard video player now.

Cons

The Youtube search bar doesn't actually work but that wasn't the reason I downloaded this. No other cons than that. Plays video like I want it to.

Summary

If you want a video player that will be easy that isn't complicated. Get this. I don't see why it won't be able to do your thing.

"It's outdated now"

May 31, 2013  |  By robertvaran

 |  Version: UMPlayer 0.98

Pros

Very good player, with a lot of interesting features.

Cons

Development has stopped. Youtube doesn't work anymore.

Summary

UMPlayer is actually a fork of SMPlayer. It's recommended to use the original SMPlayer since it has more features and Youtube does work.
