KMPlayer is a free, lightweight and robust media player with an active community behind it. It currently supports a long list of popular audio and video formats for playback.
As the popularity of open source and free media players grows, KMPlayer is one that stands out as both functional and nice-looking. The reason why KMPlayer has become so popular is because of the bloated nature of some of the normal staples like Windows Media Player and Winamp.
KMPlayer is presented as a minimalistic, but feature rich program which makes playing back video files quick and easy. With full support for skinning KMPlayer, you're able to have it looking the way you like without having to deal with the complicated setup of rival VLC player.
Playing back video files in KMPlayer can also be optimized, thanks to the processing tools offered from within the interface. That means you're able to sharpen video output and apply some impressive features to give your videos that ever-so impressive shine. External filters and decoders can also be defined; currently, you're able to use CyberLink's and InterVideo's external audio and video decoders. KMPlayer, although being based on DirectShow, also interally supports Winamp, RealMedia and Quicktime. Winamp plugins can also be used.
One last feature we think mentioning is the video capture tool which is a main feature in KMPlayer; you're able to capture certain parts of the video with the player. Enough said!
KMPlayer is software which can play DVD video.
Installation note: During the first few steps of installing KMPlayer on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.
