The KMPlayer is a versatile media player which can cover various types of container format such as VCD, DVD, AVI, MKV, Ogg Theora, OGM, 3GP, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, and QuickTime among others. It handles a wide range of subtitles and allows you to capture audio, video, and screenshots in many ways.

The player provides both internal and external filters with a fully controlled environment in terms of connections to other splitters, decoders, audio/video transform filters and renderers without grappling with the DirectShow merit system. Internal filters are not registered to user's system to keep it from being messed up with system filters.

The KMPlayer includes almost all the essential decoders required for media playback. Furthermore, to get beyond the limitation of internal decoders, the external ones such as commercial h.264 decoders or cyberlink/intervideo audio decoders can be specified, so that KMP works optimally by the users' own customization. Even though the KMP is based upon directshow structure, it supports Winamp, Realmedia and Quicktime by the internal logic. Thus, it is possible to specify where to try to connect firstly the media in preferences.

In short, the player provides a strong hybrid structure efficient for interconnecting various directshow filters, winamp input&dsp plugin, and internal filters. The most outstanding feature is that the player has the full control of filter connections to prevent a media playback from being messed.

The player can set multifarious audio and video effects, slow down or increase playback speed with regular tone, select parts of a video as favorites, do an exceptionally powerful A-B repeat, remap the keys of remote interface for HTPC including overlay screen controls, change a skin dynamically depending on a media type playing, and many more. It is completely customizable thanks to a wide selection of skins and color schemes, and the configuration options are extremely extensive.

Dive into the fantastic stage of The KMPlayer for the professionals!
You'll be definitely fascinated by the way of working through every part of its rich functions.
May the Force be with you!!!

KMPlayer (o) - Complete and official form
KMplayer (x)
KM Player (x)
KM player (x)
KMPlayer (x) ---> KDE frontend for mplayer which has nothing to do with KMP
Korean Media Player (x)
Korea Multimedia Player(o)
KMP (o) - Abbreviation of K-Multimedia Player

K-Multimedia Player (o)
Kang Multimedia Player (X)


The KMPlayer is based upon MPlayer or KMPlayer (KDE) or VLC (x); KMP is basically a directshow application though it has an extended hybrid structure to use shipped decoders as a plugin (by wrapping it for the connection to directshow).

The KMPlayer uses the codec of MPlayer or VLC (x); Not exactly. Both MPlayer or VLC use a libavcodec library from FFmpeg project. The library is also used in ffdshow. What KMP uses is exactly a libavcodec library from FFmpeg, not the codec of anything. And KMP borrowed some GUI interfaces to configure the supported features of the library from ffdshow etc (very well organized form). The binary of the library can be replaced (libcodec.dll). The library name was changed due to the confliction with a directshow wrapper of libavcodec (ffdshow) which is registered to system. Originally, the player had used a libavcodec binary from Unified Codec Package of dTomoyo (famous codec package provider in Korea) before the confliction report.

Why is it possible to use some plugins of winamp?; The player simulates some APIs of the older version of winamp for making it possible to use the plugin of winamp. It is not 100% compatible. (Mainly focused on enabling input plugins) Personally, I don't use almost all winamp things about the plugin. (There are better ways.) The plugin structure of winamp is not so efficient as it must be loaded when launching the player even if it is not used. Recently, winamp changed many parts of the plugin structure resulting in the compatibility issues with KMP (It became hard to support due to the hidden parts).

Why not include Real Decoders?

Because it is illegal. Do not force anything illegal to us.

Quote:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Alternative
According to RealNetworks, this codec pack is illegal, because RealMedia codecs are copyrighted by RealNetworks, and were not licensed by KL Software. According to Karl Lillevold of RealNetworks, KL Software simply re-packages RealNetworks' own DLLs and distributes them without permission.
Quote:
Official comment from RealNetworks
Note that distributing so called codec packs, which is nothing but re-distribution of codec DLLs copyrighted by RealNetworks, and a few registry keys, is not allowed by the EULA (End-User License Agreement). Note that this is not unique for RealPlayer DLLs, most proprietary software products have this restriction.

As for the playback of Quicktime media, KMP does not nearly depend on Quicktime components recently.

BTW, refer to the following as for the detail things in regard with the playback of real media.
http://www.kmplayer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=357



ps. The KMPlayer is not a codec package. So stop comparing it with K-Lite MPC etc. Because I can do the same thing like K-Lite KMP. Do you know it is really funny to mention such a thing? All directshow players will play anything with pre-installed codecs if there is a suitable splitter and decoder. It is not because of the specialties of any specified directshow based player but because of the fundmantal structure of directshow. For a general use, any kind of directshow players with ffdshow will be good enough to fit your purpose. Believe or not, KMP can do more things which is impossible with codec packages or ffdshow combinations.
