The ALShow codecs included movie player lets your watch all your videos, movies, and DVDs without searching for video codecs or audio codecs. From AVI to XviD, playing movies is first-click easy with codecs for all popular video, audio, and movie formats. ALShow also recognizes codecs that you do not have and automatically helps instantly install the right codecs. ALShow loads movies fast and plays movies smoothly.

No more video playback stuttering. Audio, video, and screen captures let you save portions of movies to share with friends. You can also import them to your favorite audio or video editor. Video looping lets you repeat parts of a movie. Captions and subtitles are supported for monitor and TV output. The ESC key hides ALShow when you are supposed to do homework. Click the tray icon to resume playing your DVD movie or video.

i have had my eyes on the folks over at altools for a few years now. i was using ALShow and loving it when VLC was the most highly praised media player and before KMPlayer came close to being on the scene.

the majority of features that are offered in KMPlayer are also offered in ALShow (changing brightness, recording from video being played, jumping forward or back in small, medium, or larger time increments, playing pretty much any type of video format including DVD's), but in some cases ALShow is more customizable (how far ahead jumps in time are from shortcut keys).

to me, KMPlayer "looks cooler", and occasionally I've had to use it (or VLC) for random files when ALShow has had problems. but, this is maybe 1 percent of the time. i still use ALShow as my preferred movie player.

i just hope it stays freeware

  • nice and customizable keyboard shortcuts
  • small on resources
  • plays pretty much everything
  • occasionally come across a file that it can't play, however this is quite rare
