5KPlayer is a comprehensive video and audio utility that works mainly as a media player. Still, it includes a series of additional features that cover most playback needs. Therefore, you can use it with confidence as a handy video and music streamer, a stable YouTube downloader, as well as a fine video and audio tuner.
The program comes with a modern and clear-cut interface, featuring a modular appearance for fast access to both main and secondary functions. The main window is clean and simple, yet the black-colored only theme may cause visual discomfort, providing an oppressive feeling. However, the organization of the video and audio play sources into clearly defined categories is a great advantage. You just need to select the corresponding module and you are ready to enjoy your favorite movies and audio tracks as you please. The media files you wish to play can be located on your computer, or you can watch them directly from a DVD disc. Furthermore, the program enables you to connect to radio stations for live music streaming. Popular radios come as presets, but you can listen to whatever online station you like simply by pasting the radio URL into the program.
Two additional functions complete the range of options provided by this application – namely, the utility allows you to download files from popular video sharing sites, as well as to stream media from portable iOS devices. Downloading online media files is done easily by pasting the file's URL into the program. The videos can be saved as FLV, 3GP, WEBM, and MP4 files, either in their original quality – which may be up to 4K – or an inferior quality, in order to preserve disk space.
What you will also appreciate about this tool is the ability to tailor sensitive luminosity issues, such as the brightness, the saturation, the contrast, and the hue of the displayed image, so that you can benefit from a better watching experience. In addition, you can rotate and flip the image, as well as take snapshots. The audio also supports customization, as the program comes with an advanced audio equalizer.
All the above-mentioned features make 5KPlayer a valuable media player. It is compatible with multiple playback sources, including radio and iOS devices. The library module keeps your movies and music tracks conveniently organized into categories, so that you can enjoy a seamless playback experience.
