Video players are programs used by the users to play multimedia files that include video content, but also audio, images, and other interactive forms. The video formats that are played most of the time are AVI and MP4. In order for us to be able to play such files, we will need appropriate software which will have support for specific types of extensions, will allow us to configure the playback option in a basic way, and will contain codecs that enable us to play video without any problems. The programs we can use are quite numerous. Here are just some of the most popular:

  • VLC Media Player – a free multimedia player with open source code
  • Media Player Classic Home Cinema – it is a multimedia player that is equally as popular as the rest. It also supports a number of multimedia formats.
  • KMPlayer – another media player. It can also display 3D and 4K movies.

You can also look for more exotic video players such as those two from Poland:

  • ALLPlayer – a free multimedia player written by programmer Artur Majtczak. It will reproduce the most important multimedia formats without any problems.
  • BESTplayer – a simple and free program that does not require installation. It will also play the most popular audio and video file formats.

It is worth noting that both programs given above have the ability to automatically search and adjust the subtitles for the movie being watched.

The programs listed above are sufficient for home use. It should be remembered that each of them also has its own individual characteristics that you may like. For an in-depth analysis, check the program’s own properties on the manufacturer’s website and read the reviews.

If you think that it is not enough, you can use paid programs. One of them is Splash. It plays the following file types: AVI, MKV, MOV, M2TS, MTS, M2T, MP4, MPG, TS. It supports video playback in H.264, MPEG-2, VC-1 and AC-3, AAC LC, HE-AAC, MPEG Layer I / II, Linear PCM, DTS audio codecs. There is also Divx / Xvid support and 5.1 sound. The program has everything necessary for smooth movie support in the best quality.
