AllPlayer stands out from other free media players with its superior subtitle options. It has an up-to-date layout and plays nearly everything, but it really excels at video subtitles. It automatically searches for all available matching subtitles, and its self-teaching Intelligent Subtitles remain onscreen for as long as you need them. AllPlayer also supports dual monitors or monitor/TV output, S/PDIF, Dolby Surround, and Parental Controls, and its AVI Doctor can preview downloading torrents and repair broken files.
Play it all: True to its name, AllPlayer plays just about any kind of media file, including uncommon and obscure formats. When a page or frame won’t open, it automatically searches for the right codec.
Smart subtitles: AllPlayer’s built-in subtitle engine learns and adjusts itself to your viewing habits. You can customize subtitle appearance and behavior, choose languages, send subtitles to the server, and more. Subtitles can be spoken aloud by speech synthesis, too.
Codec choices: In Custom setup, you can tell AllPlayer to use your own codecs for movies.
Remote control app: The AllPlayer Remote app controls AllPlayer from your Android device.
Setup extras: Standard setup bundles an app named Catzilla. Custom setup lets you deselect it, but a click-through notification would make you feel less used.
Translations: Some menus didn’t translate fully, such as the Filtry (Filter) menu.
AllPlayer holds its own against the best media players. But for subtitles, it not only stands out but stands alone. If you’ve had difficulty finding matching subtitles for movies and DVDs, try AllPlayer.
