Kantaris Media Player
Free and open source media player which plays almost all multimedia formats without the need for installing any separate codecs. Connects to an online subtitle database, finds subtitles that are a perfect fit to the played media. Plays RAR-archives without first extracting the media. Beautiful music visualizations.
Kantaris Media Player aims to be an all-in-one media player that provides a great audio and video experience. Kantaris is an open-source alternative to Windows Media Player with similar GUI and features. Video playback is based upon Videolan Client (VLC) which enables Kantaris to play almost anything without the need of installing any codecs separately. It features an attractive skin, some nice audio visualizations, and integration with Last.fm and Apple movies trailers.
The player is mostly written in C# which is relatively easy to understand so if you looking for a project to get involved in don’t look any further. People that are willing to help out by testing new versions or answering questions from other users are also very welcome.
Kantaris can automatically find subtitles for you online that are a perfectly synced to the video file playing. Correct subtitles character encoding will always be identified so that all characters always look the way they should, this is a unique feature for Kantaris Media Player.
Fixed problem with detecting subtitle language. Fixed problem caused by dll files from old versions interfering with the latest versions
