UMPlayer: A fast, free media player with large media format support

Want a universal media player, which can play a large variety of video and audio files. Then you should try  UMPlayer or Universal Media Player. It supports a large number of media file formats and has a list of interesting features, that you would definitely like.

UMPlayer is free as it is open source and is licensed under terms of GNU (General Public License). UMPlayer also shows support for playback of DVDs, (S)VCDs, Audio CDs, TV/ Radiocards and Web streams.

It shows a good support for subtitles of movies and any other media content, as by this program you can search for subtitles on or you can upload your subtitles to it.

The program has many features, which we can’t talk about each topic in detail. But here is a list that tells you about the interesting features of the program:

  • Large support for Media Files
  • DVDs, (S)VCDs, Audio CDs playback option
  • TV/ Radiocards and web streaming support
  • Good Subtitles support
  • YouTube support
  • Shoutcast Support
  • 6 pre-installed skins and option for downloadable skins
  • Totally Customizable, large list of preferences
  • Log Window
  • Mirror image and flip image option for videos
  • Audio Filters
  • Good full screen mode

The interface of the application is wonderful and so are the 6 pre-installed themes, that allow you to change the theme to your liking. The support for Shoutcast and YouTube is well-integrated with UMPlayer. The player is very fast as it loads your videos and audio quickly, whether they are from your PC or from internet.

I compared VLC and UMPlayer, and in my opinion UMPlayer scores higher than VLC Media Player. UMPlayer scores more as it has a large support of media formats and a very interesting user interface.

It is a perfect application for a person who thinks that he/she needs a perfect and a fast media player with a large variety of supported media formats. Try it out for yourself and let us know how you find it.
