XULPlayer Review

Tina de Pierre
Excellent media player with many cool features, based on MPlayer
A review of XULPlayer by Tina de Pierre

XULPlayer is a unique media player for Windows which is based on the well-known open source project known as MPlayer. In a word: XULPlayer can play most audio and video formats without the need to install additional codecs or codec packs.

The overall layout of this media player is excellent. You're given an easy-to-read and organize playlist in the bottom pane of the layout and in the upper section, a view of what's currently playing. In the playlist, you've given information such as the media title, file size, file type and the full path to the item. In addition, you can shuffle the playlist.

Another cool feature of XULPlayer is the option to play videos simultaneously, a concept similar to a television picture-in-picture. Just like Windows Media Player and its playback buttons, this media player additionally offers other playback tools like color modification, rotation and other appearance options.

In the end, XULPlayer is a unique media player and though it hasn't been updated in a couple of years, has several nice touches which still make it stand apart years on.

Installation note: During the first few steps of installing XULPlayer on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.
