Furthermore, it can record or convert audio files directly into MP3 format. Finally, there’s also the option of installing new codecs for improved software performance.

KMPlayer stands out from the competition by being capable of playing back all types of multimedia files without needing external codecs or decoders, thanks to an internal decoding engine and filter system which interacts in an entirely controlled environment, eliminating potential conflicts between different internal and external decoders that would cause KMPlayer to crash or not function correctly.

KMplayer stands out as a free player that is capable of installing and using external codecs without the user needing to download third-party software like QuickTime, Windows Media Player or VLC. This capability is made possible through its built-in reClock multimedia engine which enables real time hardware or software rate adaptation as well as audio timestretching (pal speedup compensation) and dynamic range compression features for HD videos played back via HD player.

The ReClock multimedia engine supports many audio formats. KMplayer can play back multi-track LPCM audio files, AC3 files and MKV files without needing any plugins or decoders; additionally it features video filters such as motion blurring, sharpening, color balance adjustments, contrast saturation hue screen resizing flipping frame capture settings etc. Furthermore, it imports subtitles while recording TV channels.

This is especially beneficial for frequent video viewers who may otherwise have difficulty fitting videos onto their phones.
