Each local media player has its own killer features – as lightweight as MPC-HC, as multi-platform as VLC. While some may provide certain streaming sources of 360 degree videos, some can offer stabler video download abilities, but none of them can do perfect in all aspects. And that’s when we need several backup choices of different media players installed on our computer. Especially in a family, when your parents or grandparents might not as fast a learner as you are to skillfully handle advanced tools, you might consider installing some easier-to-use yet not old-fashioned media players for them on your shared computers. And by that, we mean 5KPlayer.

Your simplest go-to multimedia player that plays all, including 4K HDR Videos/DVDs
5KPlayer fully manifests minimalism in media software field, simplifying media playback to new extremes. As an all-in-one multimedia player, 5KPlayer’s self-demonstrative UI design is an indication of understanding that most users are reluctant to invest much time learning a new tool before using. Therefore, it has made all its major features shown on the elegant main user panel; with specific tweaks listed in Settings and the powerful right click. That’s it, extremely easy to figure out all it can do in 10 min, even for your great-grandpa.
But 5KPlayer’s minimalism does not mean serving adequately for simple needs only. It also serves for higher demands, the likes of viewing incomplete/broken files, 4K 10bit HDR video playback, and as many codecs supports as possible, from professional format, popular format to privated formats.
5KPlayer won’t brutally define if a file is unplayable and close the playback process. Instead, it will try analyzing whatever can be extracted for proper playback and presents them. Unlike Windows Media Player which needs additional codecs installed to playback certain files, or QuickTime which suddenly stops supporting Mac platforms without earlier alerts, the out-of-box 5KPlayer plays almost all codecs/formats without extra codec packs and soundly supports macOS/Windows, meanwhile promising updates on a regular basis. Supporting high-res codecs including 4K DTS-HD, HEVC, H264, MKV, FLAC, AAC, ALAC and multi-region HDR DVDs is 5KPlayer’s top priority. With its core engine leveraging hardware decoding, HD videos, 4K HDR videos, and 4K DVD videos can be smoothly presented and efficiently nailed by this powerful media player which is also catching up with new 360 degree video playback and interaction feature.
Your stablest online 8K/4K HDR video downloader to enrich media collection
From online video sharing sites, 5KPlayer makes sure that you don’t have to watch and lose. Encountering any interesting video that you’d like to grab in your local collection for editing, learning or offline sharing, 5KPlayer will have you fully backed by its stable and fast download ability.
Following its on panel guide, you can directly download videos of 8K/4K/HD resolution in any format, including audio-only format of M4A, with or without subtitles, as you please. In case you prefer other video/audio formats like MKV, MP3 or AAC, 5KPlayer also won’t miss a shoot to provide format conversion utility.
Your Connected 4K HDR Streaming Player that wields both LAN and WAN streaming
More of a highlight, this multimedia player supports both AirPlay mirroring and DLNA streaming protocols to beam 4K HDR contents cross screens via LAN wirelessly. You can either mirror your iOS screen to PC for live broadcasting, or stream movies from mobile to computers/computers to UHD TV for bigger screen enjoyment. As it is a computer-oriented streaming, your mobile devices, TV, PS4/PS3, and Xbox are all bestowed with wireless access to 5KPlayer’s library. You can always walk around in your house and continue to watch movies playing on PC from your mobile tablets.
But if you think 5KPlayer can only fuss with local networks, you could be wrong. It is a peer-to-peer network based player – developed in a networking environment, capable of handling WAN streaming and LAN streaming alike. It plays back streaming files like m3u8, network streams like internet radios and even fetching live streams.
In 5KPlayer, everything gets boosted, from UHD DVD video playback, video download, to 4K video streaming. For a simple structured media player, it is perfectly intuitive and incredibly versatile. Again, don’t forget join their 4th anniversary campaign to win prizes!
