Those of us who use our devices to watch TV shows, movies or different types of video content are in luck. The complete KMPlayer that’s been so successful in its Windows version is now finally available for Android.
Although streaming platforms have reached a daunting level of success, there are still many of us who watch movies or videos from a local hard drive or from our own server. However, to get the absolute most out of these recordings, it’s important to have a good player. That’s where KMPlayer comes in. Let’s take a look at the 5 key features this tool has to offer.
1. Compatibility with an infinite number of video and audio formats
A must-have feature of any multimedia player is that it needs to be compatible with most of the formats of your video or audio recordings, so you don’t have to fight with different codecs. In this case, KMPlayer passes the test with flying colors, since it can play any and all of the following formats:
AVI, MP3, WAV, AAC, MOV, MP4, WMV, RMVB, FLAC, 3GP, M4V, MKV, TS, MPG, FLV, amv, bik, bin, iso, crf, evo, gvi, gxf, mp2, mtv, mxf, mxg, nsv, nuv, ogm, ogx, ps, rec, rm, rmvb, rpl, thp, tod, tts, txd, vlc, vob, vro, wtv, xesc, 669, amb, aob, caf, it, m5p, mlp, mod, mpc, mus, oma, rmi, s3m, tak, thd, tta, voc, vpf, w64, wv, xa and xm.
2. UHD playback
Lately, 4K recordings are becoming more and more common, but not all players support this type of resolution. Therefore, another strong point of KMPlayer for Android is that it’s able to support 4K and 8K resolutions.
3. Subtitle support
If you’re the type of person who loves watching content in its original version, you’ll know how important it is to have a player that’s compatible with different subtitle formats. Fortunately, KMPlayer supports more than ten different subtitle formats. Specifically, its current version supports the following formats:
- DVD, DVB, SSA/ASS Subtitle Track.
- SubStation Alpha (.ssa/.ass) with full styling.SAMI (.smi) with ruby tag support.
- SubRip (.srt), MicroDVD (.sub/.txt), VobSub (.sub/.idx), SubViewer2.0 (.sub), MPL2 (.mpl/.txt), TMPlayer (.txt), Teletext, PJS (.pjs) , WebVTT (.vtt).
4. Gesture shortcuts
They may seem unnecessary at first, but once you give KMPlayer’s touch shortcuts a try, you won’t be able to live without them. With a single gesture, the app allows you to turn the volume up or down, as well as pause or play the video at any time.
5. Compatibility with older Android versions
This last feature, but undoubtedly one of the most important, is that KMPlayer is compatible with Android versions as low as 4.0. This means that, unlike other players, you can use it on any device — even ones that are several years old or with devices that no longer support updates to the latest versions of Android.
