about ALShow Jun 2011

I tried every movie player (like VLC, Mplayer, Movie Player Classic) to watch a movie and ALShow was the only video player that helped me play it. ALShow detected that the video was encoded with Indeo Video. A video codec developed by Intel in 1992 and helped me download that special codec in a matter of seconds. I can highly recommend ALShow.
