Software Update: The KMPlayer

Version 3.8 of The KMPlayer has been released. This program, not to be confused with KMPlayer from the KDE Software Compilation, is a comprehensive media player for the Windows platform. The KMPlayer handles a variety of formats and containers, including vcd, dvd, avi, mkv, Ogg Theora, ogm, 3gp, mpeg-1/2/4, wmv, RealMedia, and QuickTime, using both internal as external filters. There are also extensive options for subtitles, it is possible to take screenshots or to save audio and video clips, and the appearance can be adjusted by means of skins.

Today, The KMPlayer is published by KMP Media Corporation, but the original developer of this program started his own business some time ago. His media player is called Daum PotPlayer and is very similar in appearance and functionality to The KMPlayer. The installation file contains some optional sponsor modules, so pay attention during the installation. The changelog of this release shows the following changes and improvements:
