KMPlayer also known as the KMPlayer, K-Multimedia player or KMP is a multimedia player known to support a large number of formats, including VCD, DVD, AVI, MKV, Ogg, OGM, 3GP, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, FLV and Quick Time. This should explain the application’s enormous popularity and a lot of positive reviews it has received since its release in 2002. Another thing much appreciated by both users and experts is that KMPlayer is one of the few players that actually give well-deserved attention to subtitles. Apart from supporting multiple formats the app also allows editing subtitles, you can change encoding and their look – font, size, color, etc. and customize the way subtitles are loaded –manually or automatically. KMPlayer is capable of supporting up to three sets of subtitles at a time. The player helps you regulate playback speed, take screenshots, playback a video segment in a loop and there is much more.
