There are a lot of programs for playing audio and video files, and most of us have a favorite, and it would be hard for anything to make us switch to another one. AVS Media Player is a free program for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, and 11 that will allow you to play audio and video files.
How Does AVS Media Player Work?
Unfortunately, we have to start this review with criticism and a warning. When you download the program and start the installation, be careful because AVS Media Player will try to install additional programs, so don’t rush to press the Next button.
As we mentioned, AVS Media Player is used to play audio and video files. This works by transforming the program’s user interface depending on the file format you’re playing. If you play a video file, the user interface will be a video player that strongly resembles GOM Player, and if you play an audio file, the interface will be an audio player that looks like AIMP.
As for the video player, 19 formats are supported, which we consider quite a solid number. AVS Media Player does not support 4K resolution, so if this is something you require from your video player, you will have to look elsewhere. After loading the video file, the subtitle will be automatically loaded, if the file has the same name as the video file. Also, the program contains solid options for adjusting subtitles, including changing the font, adjusting the font size and color, changing the position, and more.
The audio player supports 15 formats, and the user interface, in addition to the commands for controlling audio playback, also contains a playlist that will allow you to create categories and subcategories and thus organize your music. The authors have also included the possibility of activating a visualization that will dance on the screen to the rhythm of the music.
The biggest complaint we have is the fact that when working AVS Media Player consumes a lot of system resources and that, when loading files, it often happens that the program freezes for a few seconds before continuing. However, this is not such a big complaint, and if you have a newer PC, you probably won’t even notice this.
AVS Media Player Is a Solid Program That Should Be Considered
AVS Media Player is a solid program and we believe certain users will like it. The only real downside is that it doesn’t support 4K video, but if you don’t have a 4K monitor this won’t be a problem. We didn’t encounter any problems or bugs while using it, so AVS Media Player gets our recommendation.
Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 and 11
