In this digital age we’re always looking for upcoming tech products that do a ‘better’ job than the one before it. This is where SPlayer comes in. This software program is a simpler version of what some of the bigger programs like Winamp, ITunes, AIMP and B.S. Player do. Sometimes being simpler is simply better. SPlayer is considered a lightweight video and audio player because of its light usage of the system resources, in addition to the ease of use. The SPlayer is also able to play formats such as DVDRip, HDTV, RMVB, QuickTime, APE, FLAC, AAC, MPC, MPEG-2, AC3.DTS, 2 GP/AMR, Indeo, XVD, OGG/OGM and MPEG-4. This program works on computers and laptops using operating systems Windows 7, Vista and XP.

What SPlayer can do for the user is to allow them to enjoy music and movies on their computers or laptops. It is able to support an incredible list of formats, including streaming media and DVD formats. The format of the screen does not interfere with the viewing of the program of choice. Users can also use their personal USB devices and play music or videos directly from the device. Because this program supports so many formats, there doesn’t need to be any additional downloading of codec packs. Another perk to save memory space and to not bog down the system.

In addition to the lightweight resource use, the minimalistic appearance and the ability to stream many formats, SPlayer is also able to do more in-depth things as well. The program can provide support for subtitles and has the ability to capture individual frames by using a screenshot tool. It can be used in three different sizes, which are minimal, compact and standard. Lastly it also has a video and audio equalizer. The subtitles are found automatically online by the program.

In looking and using the program, the design of the interface is not as appealing as other players may be. However, in paring down on a complicated design, SPlayer is able to offer options like adjustable fast-forwarding increments, the ability to resume playback and the ability to set up auto play. The minimalistic approach to SPlayer may be a big attractor to those that like clean, simple lines on their screen.

SPlayer is completely free and doesn’t require installation, which is really appealing to those with small storage space on their devices. When users play with the audio equalizer they are able to enhance the playback of their music. Another great perk is that the user is able to customize skins for their players. It also has no built-in Adware to spam up the screen. SPlayer doesn’t have to be downloaded, which means that it is an entirely portable application.
