Most of us use and trust only famous AV players like VLC Player, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, GOM Player, Winamp, KMPlayer and Etc for both good Audio and Video experience. We all know that how famous the above players are. We got used to them so closely that we don’t care of upgrading them or try to install a new version.All the above players which i mentioned are very good players which are stable and flexible. I want to mention some details about KMPlayer which is used by most of the people now a days. KMPlayer team were not upgrading there software from months and also some bugs and errors made people to shift to other players because of its some default errors and bugs which bothered people from using it consistently.
Actually KMPlayer was a Pandora TV product and most of the decisions were taken by Pandora TV management. Now the KMPlayer is separated from them and working individually to increase standard and put more focus on product. Since they have been recently working hard to correct the product bugs and errors, finally they have succeeded in releasing a new version of KMPlayer with more advanced features. The Improved KMPlayer 18.104.22.1689 is really challenging many of the other players. Lets see how it is improved and what made it more stable and consistent, here are some of the new KMPlayer features.
- FLV – Skip Problem : FLV files are treated badly with built-in FLV splitter and also KMPlayer freezes for 20 – 30 secs if we want to scroll the video for ahead or backward in streaming.
- MKV + 24bits FLAC Audio Problem : Whenever we try to play FLAC audio in KMPlayer the video has a choppy playback. This happens with all kinds of resolution videos from 360p t0 1080p. Other videos without FLAC run smoothly.
