Play media successfully and without headaches basic task of any self-respecting computer, but both macOS and windows have very basic shortcomings in this regard: in either case, their native players are very limited, with support for few formats and almost no extra display option.
To get around the problem, many people resort to players such as VLC. But what if you are looking for a slightly more say, friendly or more playable solution? Well, for these and others there is the 5KPlayer for Macs (and PCs) by developer Dearmob.
The utility is a full-featured 4K HDR file player that promises to play basically anything you play on it, plus some extra features such as a basic editor, AirPlay support and advanced controls.
For starters, the player supports a wide range of formats, so you will certainly not be shaking your hands with it at any time, nor with the most obscure files. We support MKV, M2TS, MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV and other video files, as well as various audio formats such as MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, FLAC and ALAC. All the most popular compression patterns run perfectly on it, and you can still play DVDs if you have the drive in your machine or as a peripheral.
We also have hardware acceleration here for always smooth playback, and the ability to stream content via various protocols (AirPlay, M3U8 or DNLA are all available), so you can play the playback video for Apple TVs, Android devices, Smart TVs or video game consoles.
You also have refined playback controls, with the ability to add subtitles, manually configure screen aspect ratio and more. And as if that weren't enough, the software even comes with a built-in mini editor for basic adjustments to your video file. You can trim them, change playback speed, adjust color balance and more.
Finally, 5KPlayer also has a tool to record the screen of the iPhone or iPad being mirrored for the Mac, as well as a feature to download videos online from all the most popular sites. The cool thing is that all of these features are arranged in a very simple interface, which is not to intimidate anyone, not even those who do not speak English since, for now, the application is only available in that language.
5KPlayer can be downloaded for free from its official website, and anyone interested can also participate in DearMob's official promotion: simply by downloading the app and entering your email address, you are now competing for a number of prizes. We have a Panasonic HC-VX1 camcorder, 30 monthly premium YouTube subscriptions and unlimited 4K Video Converter licenses yes, just join the promotion that you already get the utility.
