What is UMPlayer?

UMPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems. It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5, WMV and even H.264 movies.

Another great feature of UMPlayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB, but you can use GGI, SDL (and this way all their drivers), VESA (on every VESA compatible card, even without X11!) and some low level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx and ATI), too! Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. UMPlayer supports displaying through some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the Siemens DVB, DXR2 and DXR3/Hollywood+.

UMPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls. European/ISO 8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Korean fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, SubRip, OGM, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and our own: MPsub). DVD subtitles (SPU streams, VOBsub and Closed Captions) are supported as well.

This seems like a less-actively-developed fork of SMPlayer. Fewer updates, very out of date source code (that I could find) with no clear links to anything else on its website. It seems like it was just dropped onto the Internet then forgotten about by it's developer.

I had been using UMPlayer for a while, more than a year, maybe two. I don't know sh*ts, but its video image quality is comparably better than like, VLC. Just press CTRL+E to access equalizer so you could make your favorite porn actors look tanner. It used to be my easy to go player for videos and dvd files like the simpsons. It's easy like a sin. But after I reinstalled my windows, it started acting weird. Like reading fonts that could take forever. It crashes and just doesn't behave the same.

I play my cartoon dvd with windows player 12 now. It does good but it's just not the same experience like I had with UMPlayer.

I need recommendation for alternatives to this with same or better video quality.
