World's Best Media Player





iamarun
Hello Dear Friends.

I am here so excited to announce to you the Best media player i have ever seen or used. It is made by South Korean's and Named as Korean Media Player. Some people might see it as the clone of Winamp but it is not. I have been using KM Player for the last 3 years and have never looked or used any of the other Media players. I tell you that you will surely fell in love with this player when you know the things you can do with this player. It can and will play all the formats that other players cannot play. You can even watch the movies as your desktop background. The sound quality is very very good. Its simple to use and will work with all the complicated formats.

There are many different good option like choosing different language audio tracks in a movie. It can show more than one subtile at a time. It has handfull of option for Video, Audio. Now its upto you to decide to use this or not. Some of you might have used it and some of may not even know it.

Read the below testimony by one of the users

Let me say, I am completely in awe of this media player. Not only does it have the gloss, glory, and glamour of any other player... It also has great codecs, great filters, and great system tray support. On top of all this, it also takes very little system resources along with an immense amount of support.

-- I have had to do many things, including using google and any search engine I could to try and find a player just to play the specific little file types. Before KMPlayer i had Quicktime, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, Several FLV players that were for different TYPES of flv's along with other random media players like VMC and others for the codecs that others were glitching on.

After looking at a comment from someone at giveawayoftheday.com, I heard about KMPlayer. I instantly searched google for it, and downloaded it. I really expected it to suck like every other media player, in fact I was very sure of it with a generic name with Player in the name. After opening it with flv and it displaying the file without any problems I was in awe.

During watching this movie, i was playing around with the immense amount of extra tools, and color display it has. It was like every button I pressed open up a new media player all in itself with capabilities. The filters this program has exceeds Sony Vegas's support while taking 9-10k mem usage.

This versatile, beautifully designed and elegantly textured media player has tooken me by surprise and has made me able to remove all of the spyware infested, memory taking programs like Quicktime and RealPlayer.

I you have video format that you do not know use KMP, it will play it for you.

The 'mini modes' are lacking legibility! Are the fonts customizeable as in Winamp?
Indyan
Hmm.. i see that it has got a new skin. I had tried it sometime back. Was decent enough. But I found that the interface wasnt as intuitive as Crystal Player (but better than that of most other players - read wmp,winamp,vlc.
Lukero
Wow, that looks like an awesome player! Step aside, VLC cos KMPlayer is here! I'm going use KMPlayer from now on. Thanks for the recommendation iamarun!

hello friends

thank you for the comments. If you need any troubleshooting please ask me and also would suggest you find very useful tips and troubleshooting stuff online in the KMPlayer.com website.

Hope you will enjoy.

What is about media players that they rarely if ever use the native widget set of the system they're running on?

My choice for video: Media Player Classic. simple and Functional.
My choice for music: Winamp. Traditional and effective. I mean the 2.93 version.

With so much skinning and miscellaneous stuff, KMPlayer turns out to be a bloat / resource hog compared to the free OPEN-SOURCE multi-platform GPLed mplayer (like VLC). Agreed, mplayer is for the command line geeks and keyboard shortcut freaks, and the bundled GUI makes a mockery of all sane things, but, with the capability of MPUI GUI added, I think it is one of the best all-media playback options that I have at my disposal.

The Amarok team is planning on releasing an Amarok 2.0 build for Windows and not just for Linux as it had been previously.
That should really shake things up - Amarok is awesome!

ETA was first half of next year I think.
BlueVD
Basically, I have my list plotted out. MPlayer and Amarok on linux while on windows I preffer winamp and GomPlayer. before trying KMplayer you didn't happen to try GomPlayer, did you? It supports a lot of files, not to mention non-standard codecs.
ssthanapati
I prefer 2 play my videos on Media Player classic... with K-lite codec pack installed and i can play all types of videos

for songs i stick 2 WM player. Smile

Hello friends,

I believe media players is not all about being satisfied just playing a video and watch it. Its all about satisfying your eyes and the ears.

As i have already told you i have used different Media players but was never satisfied with the output i get.

Again its all about what you personally like and its godd when we can share our views and practical use of different softwares which would help others and finally will bring the best software out of it.

Any thank you for the input. I would only suggest you to use KMP and study it colsely and its you who decide whether it is good or not.

I also use VLC and some times Media Player classic but most of the times i use KMPlayer because its gives please and satisfication to my eyes and ears.

All I need is Winamp and two specialised players for what Winamp fails to either play correctly or play at all. Specifically, these formats are SID (for Commodore 64 Chiptunes, which Winamp cannot play so I rely on a small player to more or less accurately play the tunes. SID emulation has never been really perfect) and MOD (which Winamp seems to like to butcher - I played Acidjazzed Evening's MP3, and the actual MOD in both a pure MOD player (which faithfully replayed the song), and Winamp - the difference was nuts).

Since I don't think KMPlayer has a SID player, I'm not one for much eye candy (yes, Winamp has skins, but I'm willing to put up with it), and I'm satisfied with Winamp, I don't think I'll be switching to any other player anytime soon.

I prefer Winamp for audio files, BSplayer with K-lite codec pack for video files, PowerDVD for DVD's and Media player classic with CoreAVC for HD movies.

And since I'm at HD, I bet that this program need much more system requirements when playing HD movies than Media player classic with CoreAVC HD codec (if it can play HD at all).
djcaution
I'm scared of trying a different media player...
fadirocks
I admit that I use Winamp but seriously all I need is Media Player Classic
iamarun
you dont have to be scared to try a software and especially if it is a media player it is good to know what this media player can do better than the other. And we only know how a mango tastes only when we eat. So if you are interested to feel KMplayer you need to have a bite
azuwis
I prefer MPlayer to KMPlayer
iamarun
No problem brohter you are welcome to use any player that you wish to use. I am here posting this topic to let people know that there is another player that has come, so that you would give it a try.

The layout may not look cool but player itself works nice.
Rosanova
Hi there,

I've been trying allot of media players and some has been nice and allot hasn't.

Winamp is a classic and I won't spend time to say something that the most already knows about it.

Windows Media Player is another classic, but I think that it's too heavy to run, and it's still needing features that I expect on a Media Player.

VLC is great watching divx files, and it's very light weighted and best of it all it's free.

Then is there these heavy feature so-called Media Center apps, like Nero, Jetaudio and Zortam.

Nero doesn't need more presentation, but I would like to recommend following apps.:

COWON Media Center - jetAudio http://www.cowonamerica.com/products/jetaudio/

Zortam Mp3 Media Studio http://www.zortam.com/index.php

Cheers!

Hi,
Thank you for the post and thank you for sharing what you have. I check these players and will give you my feedback.

By the way i am more interested in Video player than Audio player since i am not a good listener of music but a very good viewer of movies.

As you mentioned about VLC, yes its ture that VLC is a very light player which play the videos very well. I use VLC too. But there are some file formats that which VLC cannot but in KMP you can play any format that you have with you.

Thank you once again

VLC all the way! VLC was written by one of my software heros - the same guy who wrote ffmpeg and QEMU!
ganesh
My worries about KMplayer:

(1) Why is it not open source, while some of its closest competitors (probably a bit ahead even!) in the race are GPLed open source applications (VLC / Mplayer) ?

(2) Why is there a controversy surrounding the usage of GPL code in KMplayer?

Check this link:

http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=462894

In my humble opinion, applications which take in GPL code and then make it closed source are detrimental to the development of open source software in general. Should anyone support such a project at all?
iamarun
This is interesting for me, which i have never thought about it and even didn't come in my way. I will have a look at it and will give you the feedback.

Anyway thank you for the post. Now i am so happy that the forums are so very useful for people so that they know all about a particular software or a topic after all the discussion made by people like you and every one in the forum.

What's wrong with Windows Media Player that everyone hates it so much? As long as the media player can handle playlists and doesn't decrease the sound quality everything is fine with me... Windows Media Player looks great in my opinion, and it can handle all the formats I need. Why would I need to install an other media player?
emem
I think people need a lightweight media player with basic functions. I'm currently using iTunes, because I own an iPod, but it eats 70mb of ram, and that's quite a bit.
carlospro7
I really like what I have right now, winamp. It plays all the formats that I have for it to play, including m4a stuff, because i don't like itunes anymore, but I'd be willing to give kmplayer a shot.
asim
hi guys Very Happy i think windows media player is a good media player and plays all the formats..... if you have it up to date...... thumbs up Exclamation .

Hi there,

I could make a major list of reasons that I'm not into Windows Media Player, but I would just say it by one single word.... Microsoft.... Smile

But what ever! If Windows Media Player works for you, can I just say good for you. But not for me. Anyway doesn't it hurt to try to test something other, as you would probably find a whole new universe that you wouldn't had found with Windows Media Player, and I hope that this discussion also are about exchanging experiences regarding the topic, and to learn about alternatives, and in my case COWON Media Center (that like Windows Media Player also are working with MCE


Cheers!

Then, why is WMP not good enough for you? If it's just because Microsoft made it I can't really accept that as a reason...

WMP simply eats ur resources and doesnt even have much features.
You try out VLC - in my view the best media player, and u will understand to never ask such a question ever again
qscomputing
What is it about media player authors that they never seem content to use the widget sets provided by the operating system! If I want a media player, I want something that *plays music* - not something that looks "nice" but is nigh-on impossible to use and doesn't look like anything else on my system. I personally think the best current media player is Amarok, which is currently Linux only but seems to do almost everything and do it well. Only gripe is that it's a bit heavy on resources.
rolie
I use foobar for music, it's less bloated then winamp. It has a nice option to use 24 bit playback if your card supports it. For video files I use vlc player which plays just about everything and media player classic for files that don't play in vlc.

I'm still trying to find a good dvd software. I tried windvd and powerdvd but they seem bloated. I'm currently using windvd until I find a better one.

Hi there,

Thanks for follow up, as my oppinion that Microsoft generally eats too many resources for nothing, and with a world without Microsoft could you actually do the same things with an older pc or smaller pc.

Cheers!

Well, I don't really like KMPlayer. I used to use it, but then encountered some problems.
I have a list of players that I use. VLC player should play about every format known to man, and even if you don't have any codecs installed on the computer. It uses it's own codecs. It's light and highly recommended. Media Player Classic is also a good player. It has alot of options, and if you have codecs installed you can tweak their settings via this player. For music playing, almost all of the audiophiles use Winamp. They say it's just like an equalizer on your computer, and I pretty much agree. You have to have a decent sound card to enjoy it, but if you do... it's just awesome. The free version of Winamp comes with all sorts of "extra" programs that I don't really like, that's why I use Winamp Pro.
dude_xyx
CyberLink PowerDVD is the one I use also I use media player sometimes. I used to use winAmp too but these latest once eat up too much resources.
JayBee
I thing Amarok is the best for music, but I don't have any best player for movies. When I last time try Windows Media Player 11 it seems not to be as bad as previous versions.
cybernytrix
The poster just wants some publicity for his player.
If you want to stick with Windoes media player and not change, simple get the klite codec pack .
You can get it from free-codecs.com and it is really good.

I used to use VLC most of the time, but it does not have a media library and other needed features. WMP11 is one of the surprisingly nice product from the otherwise-pissworth microsoft.

Do yourself a favor and use klite!

If you are in Linux, get all the gstreamer plugins and you are set.

I us VLC, coz it plays most of my video formats.
©Wolfie
The best media programmas are foobar2000 and VLC. VLC seem to work a little slower than foobar. Why foobar2000? It's fast, ultiment lightweight (no skins), better sound quality (at least, that's what I suppose, it seem to sound better than in WMP) AND it does remember the tracks you had selected in the last section. It just go on playing the tracks.

BUT foobar sometimes gives some strange Mp3 and MPG etc etc errors.... Bleehhhh.

So, I had to download VLC again. VLC does support many formats and doesn't give errors. But I am still using foobar. Try it by yourself. It won't harm your pc health.

For those of us only willing to try full featured free software, it would be nice to know what is free and what costs how much.

I'm happy with PowerDVD that came with my new computer last year, but it's mostly because I use PowerProducer to burn DVDs from avi files (Naruto most recently) that I've downloaded and had to convert. using Super.

I tried WinAmp long ago and didn't like it much. It's not clear from the comments, and my own ignorance, if Windows Media Classic is the MS Windows Media Player that comes with the XP system, or something else.

But what is used, and why or why not, is quite interesting to me.
newso
ive tryed many players. however i always go back to windows media player. purley because it loads super fast when you want to open media. things like winamp take absolutley ages to loads. the same with real player and others.
fmwyso
heya, i'm fmwyso Razz.

As far as the comments here are concerned, i tried VCL and all those other programs... KMPlayer uses 2-3k memory when VCL and all the others use 7k+? I have 512mbram and i play games that require 1gig+... I need something without much lag, and Windows Media player is a hogger along with VCL, Real Player, QuickTime and all others...

Starting up? I can usually start KMPlayer in about .5-1second with all graphics on... The only time it has some lag on, is when starting an .flv which usually takes anywhere from 1-3seconds.

The only skepticism i will accept towards KMPlayer is that your used to old media players you used... But that is just pathetic in my opinion Razz.

Anyway, KMPlayer > any other media player in speed, reliability, memory usage and in my opinion the interface is extremely reliable. States everything i need (song name, time, formats, length).
