    "Player works perfect for 50%"

    March 6, 2012  |   By AVM1986

    Pros

    + Supports all videofiles and even a lot of audiofiles.
    + Plays youtube video's.
    + Picture/video quality looks superb.

    Cons

    - Out of sync.
    - Takes just as much system memory as windows media player.

    Summary

    The audio is not always out of sync, but with some video's it's out of sync. (sound is not accurate during a frame/scene)
    I compared it with VLC media player, and VLC had no issues during a video while UMPlayer is out of sync with the same video.
    Maybe you can adjust the video's to avoid out of sync, but for most people VLC is the best solution for direct and fluid playback.
    But i must say that UMPlayer has better picture quality than VLC.

    (cont') I've figured out that I need to turn off the 'Audio/Video auto sync' option as well. It'll out of sync when you apply the changes but the next time you open a file or move the time slider, it'll play perfectly.

    Same 'audio out of sync' thingy happened to me. Try enable the 'A-V Sync Correction' with default values (0.0) set in General>Audio tab of Preferences window and see if it works.
