Editors' review

To a certain extent, all media players are the same; they play audio or video, and the only thing that really differentiates them from one another is their features and interface. Unfortunately, uAmp has absolutely nothing going for it where either of these is concerned.

We will never understand why software designers create interfaces that are festooned with tiny buttons and text. Not only was it virtually impossible to decipher words and symbols on uAmp's interface, but also the buttons were so small that we had difficulty even clicking on them. The program offers several different skins, but we hardly count this as an asset when everything else about the interface is so frustratingly small. As for uAmp's features, there's not much to discuss. The program does play both audio and video, and videos can be resized by manually entering the desired height and width pixels, which we guess is kind of cool. The audio player allows for the creation of playlists, but so do most other media players. To its credit, the program does come with a fairly detailed Readme file, but we have trouble imagining that anyone could deal with uAmp's interface for long enough to want to learn how to use it. Overall, although the program does work just fine for playing both audio and video, we thought the interface was absurdly bad. There are many other media players out there that don't require a magnifying glass for use.

uAmp is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program.

    "Fantastic media player."

    August 10, 2009   |   By dess71

    Version: uAmp 5.0

    Pros

    light weight and easy to operate

    Cons

    Audio and video played on a separate window. No audio dragging button. Player above video.

    Summary

    I like the product for its light weightedness and so for its loading fast. Simple- no complications.
    It can not play some media files. Poor interface.
