GOM Player: Media player app

GOM Player has a clean design that won't overwhelm new users. Basic playback controls are at the forefront, reducing any learning curve. The default layout caters to those who want to upload a video and start watching it quickly.  For more control, customization becomes the strength of GOM Player. Themes and skins offer a range of visual styles to suit personal preferences. Advanced users can take full control over the player's appearance by completely rearranging control placement and density. 

If, like me, you like to personalize your experience, GOM Player allows you to customize various themes, skins, and controls with the ability to reposition them for a unique look.

So, what is GOM Player's most attractive feature, I hear you ask? The answer is the Codec Finder. This feature can actively scan online sources for the required codec. Sounds great. 

On the other hand, GOM Player also supports 360-degree VR videos! Users with compatible videos will unlock a more immersive viewing experience by exploring the full 360-degree environment of the images. The app supports both top-bottom and left-right 360-degree formats.

Let's talk about one of the most important issues: Subtitles. GOM Player offers built-in tools for subtitles as well. This means you can search for compatible subtitle files through the app and synchronize them with your videos. You can also customize the subtitle appearance.

GOM Player offers flexibility in playback control. You can adjust the video speed to slow down or speed up the content as needed. On the other hand, it's a valuable tool for learning languages or focusing on the intricacies of fast-paced scenes. I will call this feature by its name: A-B repeat function. 

The app offers a free, ad-supported version that gives access to its core features. Premium GOM Player Plus removes ads and offers additional functionality, such as advanced playback settings.

The free version provides a full-featured media player experience with the caveat of advertisements. If you find the player valuable and would prefer to remove ads, or desire the additional features of GOM Player Plus (such as advanced noise reduction), the paid upgrade is available.

Bottom Line

GOM Player can easily handle popular formats like AVI, MP4, and MKV. It also supports other file formats that are not widely used, making it a reliable option.

Developer's Description

Experience the full benefits of comfortable, 360-degree playback environment of multiple file formats including damaged.

GOM Player is a free desktop video player. Originally famous for its high video and audio quality, and support of multiple video formats: flv, mp4, mov, mpg, ts, avi, divx, asx, wmv, m4v, dat, ifo, vob, 3gp/3gp2, rm/rmvb, mkv, ogm. However, there is a lot more to GOM Player, than codec support. If you are interested in VR and 360 degree videos, GOM Player is for you. GOM Player supports a variety of VR and 360 degree; video formats, and provides each user with friendly and simple UI/UX experiences. It can read your local 360 degree; video files and play/stream 360 degree; YouTube videos. For more advanced users, GomPlayer allows custom configuration, enhancing the video view experience. There are thousands of amazing 360 degree; VR videos out there you can watch.

If you are looking for subtitles, GOM Player just made that amazingly simple. GOM Player users are able to access the largest subtitle database in the World. And all you have to do it just play the video. Once you play your video, GOM Player will automatically search its database and show you the matching subtitle results. After you choose the subtitle you want to run, just click apply and the subtitle will be automatically downloaded and applied. That's it: Play the video, select the subtitle, press "apply," and Enjoy. No more digging around the web and wondering if you have the right subtitle.

Another special feature of GOM Player is GOM Remote. GOM users are able to link their smartphones with their GOM Player. That means no more getting off the couch. You can do everything with your smartphone: Play/stop the videos, select videos, raise and lower the volume, dim your screen, and much more. GOM Remote and GOM Player work hand in hand to make your viewing experience comfortable. GOM Player is not your ordinary video player. It stands above the rest to provide its users a unique enjoyable viewing environment.
