Here is another refined and polished media player that caters to all the needs that you are looking for.Various features have been updated and it is made more simple and easy to use.
Kantaris is an open source media player which unlike other media players does not require any separate codecs as it plays almost all the formats like MPEG,MOV,MP3,WMV,MKV,FLV,OGG files and the list goes on.DVD’s and audio CD’s are played on it and the music visualizations are amazingly beautiful.
Kantaris is based on the code of open source media player VLC. So, it basically inherits all the great features of VLC, and then adds some more on top of that. If you are looking for a replacement for your VLC Media Player, Kantaris would be a good choice.
Here are some of the features of Kantaris Open Source Media Player:
- When you play a media, Kantaris connects to its online subtitle database, and downloads the subtitles for that media.
- Kantaris can play songs that are in RAR archives, without a need to extract them!
- You can play all the popular media formats, without a need to install any codec.
- Free and Open source.
Kantaris is a good open source media player. I missed the feature of changing skin, that I have got so used to courtesy Winamp. Also, it does not has an option to download streaming media, like Real Player does. All in all, Kantaris works well.
