Posted In Video tools - By Techtiplib on Wednesday, February 11th, 2015 With No Comments »

Movies uploaded online, homemade digital files and DVD ripped videos are in various formats, which is all the reason a best free media player has always been front and center for users. On why you should keep 5KPlayer, a FREE UHD media player for movies, music, DVD or even radio recently unveiled by DearMob, Inc., instead of any others, go read this full review of it.


5KPlayer is a mixture of free (MKV) HD video player, music player, AirPlay media streamer and online video downloader

Now, you may ask, of all the free and fee-based player services, there is no good media player that can outshine 5KPlayer? The following is a function list detailing what 5KPlayer can do for playing music/video/DVD, in light of which you probably will find out the answer.

Specification Details of 5KPlayer

  • Genre: Media Player Software
  • Version: 2.0
  • Size: 36.5 MB
  • Platforms: Mac and Windows (coming soon) 

Main Characteristics

  1. For starters, 5KPlayer that we’ve tested is a truly FREE video and audio player software. And be rest assured, it is not bundled with any adware, spyware or virus at all.
  2. It is capable of playing movie videos in MP4, MKV, AVI, FLV, etc, audios in MP3 APE, FLAC, AAC and more, DVDs (incl. region-locked DVDs) as well as radio. 5KPlayer wins hands down compared to QT, a popular Mac video player, which is limited in supportable video formats.
  3. What really amazes me is that 5KPlayer is a free media player supporting AirPlay and online video download, be it 1080p, 4K UHD or 5K, from YouTube, Vevo, Facebook and other 300 video websites. You are allowed to play music and videos on any AirPlay enabled devices by, such as streaming movies from iPhone/iPad/iPod to Mac or AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV to enjoy widescreen visual feast.
  4. It is a media file manager. 5KPlayer makes me feel like I get the hang of how to easily organize piles of DVD movies, video and music files.

Bonus Points

Besides its user-friendly interface, we also find some other considerate designs of this media player: it natively supports playing interlaced videos and can change interlaced scanning mode to the progressive to improve video effect, which means that all kinds of camcorder-recorded videos can be output in high quality with 5KPlayer while other video players cannot even play them. What’s more, this free UHD media player offers manual settings of audio/video/subtitles synchronizations if you get stuck in the problem of video delay. 

Software Update

As a newly released UHD movie player and free music player software, 5KPlayer is under further development for continuous update. Note that the current version works greatly on Mac OS X 10.7 to 10.10 Yosemite and the Windows edition is still on the way.
