Technical progress never stops. Hardware becomes more and more advanced, including television sets and computer displays. Video definitions become gargantuan by previous standards. But not all software products for playback can keep up with the rise of high definitions. That's why specialized products like 5KPlayer are so useful.

5KPlayer is a media player application for HD videos of definitions up to and including 5K. It installs fast and provides users with a friendly interface, making it easy to launch and navigate. Basic functionality includes video (and audio) playback in "heavy" formats such as 4K, 5K, 1080p HD, DVD, MP3, AAC, APE FLAC, etc. 5KPlayer can play both files from a hard drive or a USB and DVD/Bluray discs.

Additional functionality provided by 5KPlayer includes downloading video from platforms like Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, etc, and uploading your own videos to such platforms in order to watch them online. There's also support for radio tune-in with frequency adjustment interface and AirPlay support for streaming.

5KPlayer is a bit flashy for my tastes, but has all the right to be. It supports the hottest formats in our quality-obsessed age, lets you manipulate the files online and throws in a little extra. It's also free, which is a big plus in my book. If you need an HD player, check this one out.
