CNET Editors' review
Wondershare Player backs up its abundant style with solid format support and enough features to please most people. With on-the-fly playlisting and a built-in screenshot tool, it's tough to deny how this app hits most of the right notes. While it won't impress everyone, it's more than worth a look to see if it can be your video player of choice.
This sleek player focuses heavily on good looks. It gives you a minimalist black interface that looks fantastic. Most of the player's buttons are some form of translucent, so they're easy to use while not getting in the way of the video at all. As far as video playback, Wondershare Player handled all of the major formats without a hitch when we tested it. It added every video we played into a handy playlist that we could edit, loop, and repeat with just a click. The program includes a built-in screenshot tool to capture moments of a particular video, as well. You can assign that -- and most of its other features -- a particular hot key from the program's advanced settings menu.
While it doesn't have a ton of advanced features, Wondershare Player hits the sweet spot of features that people will be excited for. That, combined with the player's fantastic look and feel, should win a lot of movie watchers over. It's easily one of the best-looking universal players you can find for your PC.

"Great user interface and fonts"
Version: Wondershare Player 1.0.2
First off I'm an Arab man, this player gives very good support for arabic and I loved how can I use any font I want and the arabic letters still appear !! In a player like VLC only 2 fonts works for arabic and if you selected another font the letters will appear just like squares !!
For the movies quality this one really rocks on both audio and video..
And I have to mention that I really loved the user interface specially the design of "settings" and sliding bar..
Non so far..
This player is light, smooth and strong !! I really recommend downloading it for everyone !
"Good Player, but ..."
Version: Wondershare Player 1.0.2
Recently, I went to play a DVD (The Dark Knight), when I discovered my trusty VLC player had trouble playing it. Not sure why, as VLC is usually pretty rock solid. So I went searching for another free player. Wondershare Player looked good, so I went ahead and installed it, after reading the terms and conditions. Wondershare Player was able to play the DVD with no problems.
A few days after watching said DVD, I started getting random pop-ups advertising Wondershare products. Nothing like this was mentioned in the terms and conditions, which I read thoroughly. No, the player wasn't running. I was actually giving a presentation to a client when this first happened. Other times, while working on a spreadsheet, or working on some code.
If it weren't for this nag, even when the software isn't running, I'd be happy with it. Get rid of the spyware/nagware. Yes, WSHELPER does phone home. Yes, it gives me popups. At least warn a user before you plop this bomb on them.
