Audio and video player. Supports most popular formats like AAC, MPEG, WMA, OGG, and so on. Flawlessly plays any format without additional codecs installed.

Developed by KMP Media, KMPlayer is a well-known media player in this branch by most of the users because it shares notoriety with other applications of this kind like BS Player, VLC media player or Gom Player.

The installation process goes smoothly from one step to the next, so it can be done by even the most novice user.
As you start the program you enjoy the simplicity of its interface and the multitude of skins and color themes. Still, the icons from the bottom panel of the default theme seem a bit too small, but this can be adjusted by shifting to "Touch" theme, so there's nothing to worry about.

KM Player is equipped with diverse video format support like RTS, MPEG1, MPEG2, AAC, WMA7, WMA8, OGG or the most common ones such as AVI, MOV, MPEG, MKV, MP4, FLV, 3GP, TS, WMV, ASF, SWF. The audio sector it's not neglected featuring formats like MP3, AAC, WAV, WMA, CDA, FLAC, M4A, MID, OGG, AC3 or DTS. It also supports CD image files and various options for Pictures, Playlists, and Subtitles.

Moreover, it allows you to watch movies in 3D, 4K, and UHD, with the possibility to capture your favorite audio and video parts from the movies.

Besides its numerous supporting formats, what I like about KM Player is that it's highly customizable, has support for over 24 languages, it's very responsive, and not to mention, it's free.
A clever media-player solution to take into consideration for any type of user.
