There are so many different media players out there, why bother to try yet another? That's a no-brainer; none of them fully satisfy your needs. We believe you think like we do, that a really good media player should not only be able to play all the media files in your library, but also be simple and clean. That's where Ace Media Player comes in.
Ace Media Player plays all popular media formats like a charm, with a media engine completely rewritten based on the industry leading high-level media library, FFmpeg. Thus it supports all of the media files you could ever want to play. The most popular media formats include: mkv, mp4, flv, ts, tp, vob, wmv, mpg, avi, rmvb and too many more to list.
Ace Media Player also supports subtitles for both built-in media formats like mkv, and external subtitle files like ssa and srt. The player will auto-detect and auto-load external subtitle files according to media file currently being played.
Ace Media Player adheres to the K.I.S.S philosophy - Keep it simple, stupid. No mind-boggling menus here, yet it's powerful enough to support all popular media formats with a clean and intuitive user interface.
This interface has a compact playlist view to manage media files in a simple manner. Quickly locate your desired media file in a click or two. The interface also functions perfectly in full-screen mode.
The ongoing "development" of media players has caused the big-name players to become bloated, system-resource-hogging beasts with gadgets that no one ever uses. This is precisely the trend that Ace Media Player rejects. Ace Media Player is a concise, straight to the point media player that plays your files without trying to brew coffee at the same time. Sometimes less is more!
