UMPlayer Review

Fernando Ortega

Free and open source media player

A review of UMPlayer by Fernando Ortega

UMPlayer is a simple, lightweight and extremely fast media player for Windows. While it is also supported on multiple operating systems, we only tested it on Windows.

UMPlayer, short for Universal Media Player, is exactly as it sounds. It supports playback of both local media such as audio and video and can also connect to Internet streams and playback online radio stations, online videos and also supports the playback of online television. Unfortunately, you're going to have to already know which content you're interested in because this player doesn't come with any presets.

The GUI of UMPlayer is pretty basic which means it doesn't eat a lot of memory trying to be pretty. The interface includes a search engine script to find and playback online services like YouTube and Shoutcast.

The GUI doesn't even have to remain static. As UMPlayer supports skinning, you're completely free to have the program looking personalized to your own tastes. Installation of skins is easy.

The list of formats that this media player can playback is long and extensive; it currently supports over 200 audio and video file formats and does so with a very small footprint.

The program is based on MPlayer, so the playback of media is sure to be pretty stable.

UMPlayer features and highlights:
  • Audio delay adjustment
  • Configurable subtitles
  • Localization (35 different translations)
  • Remember media position
  • Remember media settings
  • SHOUTcast search
  • Skinnable interface
  • Subtitles delay adjustment
  • Subtitles search
