The company Cyberlink is well-known for developing software aimed at playing multimedia files. Previously known as PowerDVD Mobile, it's now called CyberLink Power Media Player, and is a multimedia player for Windows with which we can play video and audio at the highest quality, as well as being able to open our photo.
Compatible with a wide range of formats
Lots of people talk about VLC due to its versatility to play multimedia files. And it's true, the open-source application supports the majority of existing formats but this development by CyberLink has nothing to envy. In fact, the format has to be really odd to not be supported:
- Video formats supported: M4V, MP4V, MP4, MOV, 3G2, 3GP2, 3GP, 3GPP, AVI, ASF, WM, WMV, MKV, M2TS (with MPEG-2 and H.264), MPG, VOB, MPEG-4 Part 2, H.264, VC-1, WMV (7,8,9), MPEG-1, and MPEG-2.
- Compatible audio formats: DTS, AC3 (DD, DD+), AAC, MP3, PCM/WAV, and M4A.
- Compatible image formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, and TIF.
- Subtitle formats supported: SubRip (*.SRT), PowerDivX (*.PSB), MicroDVD (*.SUB), SunViewer (*.SUB), SubStation Alpha (*.SSA, *.ASS), and SAMI (*.SMI).
As we can see, it supports loads of different formats, even for subtitles. But we're talking more about a media center rather than just a media player as we can centralize the management of our entire collection of multimedia files, being able to share them with different devices and users.
This is the complete list of features of this program:
- Wireless transmission and shared use of videos, photos, and music by means of DLNA.
- Create playlists of videos, photos, and audio that can be sent to your phone.
- Bar with buttons to access the search of different contents from your library.
- Functions to edit images and videos, and to apply effects.
- Calendar view with a complete history of files added to the collection, as well as edits.
- User-defined spaces.
- Play contents from online sources of the likes of YouTube.
It's a commercial program so you're going to have to pay some money to be able to download and get hold of a serial or activation code for this Pro version.
