Free media player for Windows
5KPlayer is a music and video player with a downloading platform. It’s also AirPlay and DLNA enabled. But can it compete with major competitors such as VLC Media Player and Windows Media Player?
5KPlayer offers you a place to not only watch your favorite movies, series, and listen to your best tracks, but also a place where you can download new media. It can download from several different websites, including popular sites such as Vimeo, YouTube, Dailymotion, Facebook, MySpace, and Instagram.
The app is Airplay enabled which means that it can display contents from your iOS device to your computer. It can also record your screen. The program hosts a similar feature with a mixture of a DLNA server, DLNA renderer, and DLNA controller. For example, it can stream videos and music from your Android to your PC.
5KPlayer also boasts the ability to convert video formats into audio formats such as MP3. It also has a specific feature for converting YouTube videos into MP3s. The program has everything you need, all in one place.
This free software has a simple installation process, and don’t worry, it’s completely safe. After downloading the program, you will need to click on the setup file. Next, you’ll be asked to select an installation destination. You can opt to create a desktop/quick launch icon or not. Finally, if your system requests it, be sure to allow it access to public and private networks.
We think that 5KPlayer is an excellent choice of a media player that boasts many different functions that you wouldn’t usually find in one platform, particularly the downloader and Android and iOS compatibility. We’re also quite fond of the YouTube to MP3 converter.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you’re looking to try a new media player, 5KPlayer might be for you. You can decide for yourself whether you think it’s better than its competitors.
