If you have a Mac, then QuickTime player comes with it by default. Maybe its my love for VLC or respect for Windows Media Player and Winamp, but I have never liked QuickTime Player.
I have always found QuickTime to be very sluggish. When I first tried it on my Windows PC during my school days, it felt as if my machine had became dead slow. I know that there might be some other reason behind it, but I’ve never had good experiences with QuickTime. I am aware of the fact that QuickTime Player is one of the most advanced media players available, but the fact that I cannot use it made me look for some better alternatives. If you share a similar story and are looking for some good alternatives to QuickTime, then here are my picks for the best free alternatives to QuickTime.
I have tried VLC, Winamp and iTunes on my Mac and I never gave KM Player a try. But I know number of people who just love KM Player. They prefer it over the likes of VLC player. So, if you are looking for a change, then try out KM Player. I gave it a try before writing this review, and its indeed wonderful.
Well, this is a Mac specific application which is basically an all in one media player. It supports almost all the media formats, which makes it an ultimate tool. It has incorporated Macbook’s touch pad technology quite beautifully. Gestures like pinch, swipe and tap work well on this app.
LC is meant for all your media needs, but people do use it only for watching videos. VLC Player offers all the advanced features a modern day media player. Whether it would be its codecs, volume booster and easy to use interface, its just top class!
Yes, its the legendary Winamp. I have never seen a media player a clean as Winamp. I know that its been years that you haven’t used this beautiful program, but give it a try now. You will love it to the core as it has all the advanced features that any media player in the current market has.
Its a grand media player. Once you launch it, you will really feel special and I am not kidding. For a regular VLC player, XBMC looks like virtual machine in itself. With its advanced features, AMAZING user interface. It’s surely a must-check-out media player.
