KMP Player - Malware detected

Negative Comment by Archipel
about KMPlayer Mar 2016

I installed this after unchecking all the various junkware options during the setup process, but still my AVG Antivirus Free 2015 immediately detected a malware pattern called MalSign.Generic.C4D in a temp file installed by KMP called "additionaloffers-setup-100435845.exe.". I'm glad I installed KMP on a sandbox system before letting it loose on my workstation. KMP appears to be junkware, people.

KMPlayer replaced by PotPlayer

Comment by bobkush
about KMPlayer Apr 2014

KMPlayer is dead as in dead, the original author left the development long time ago and its development has stopped, its developer however started another project called POTPLAYER, which is in my opinion KMPlayer improved+features.

It was "okay"

Comment by impossible
about KMPlayer and SMPlayer, VLC Media Player, MPC-HC Jul 2013

This was an okay player for me, I did not like the thumbnail for media files, The look of the player was not as good as I expected, I did like the features it had while playing my music such as: bit rate, album image etc. on the other hand I did not like that it installed a toolbar and I am sure I was not asked during the installation about a toolbar. I would not recommend it but I would take another look at it in the near future to see if it has improved.

Daum Potplayer over KMplayer

Comment by Thordelan
about KMPlayer and Daum PotPlayer Oct 2011

If you guys like KMPlayer, then you definitely have to give a try to Daum PotPlayer, that's the new project from the guy who made KMplayer since he sold it, therefore both players are very similar, you won't be lost. PotPlayer is just better and loads a lot faster.

about KMPlayer Jun 2011

Seems to be a good player. It's sad that there are still programs out there that don't install themselves in Windows multi-user environments. If you install this on Win7, it will only be installed for the admin account under which you went through the install wizard. It's also not listed among the uninstall software dialog.
