Anansi Media Hub
Anansi Media Hub is a user-friendly and reliable piece of software designed to provide you with the ability to watch any video you want or listen to music, regardless of the formats.
After a regular installation process, you can launch the application and start playing the files that you want, by loading them from the 'Media' menu, as it does not support drag and drop nor does it allow you to integrate it into your Windows context menu.
You can add videos or audios, playing them in in full screen or minimized to the taskbar. Anansi Media Hub can play multiple file formats, including AVI, WMV, MOV, MP4, MP3, WAV, WMA or FLV.
Anansi Media Hub features several basic functions, which allow you to 'Play / Pause' the file you are currently rendering, as well as completely 'Stop' it. Similarly, you can adjust the 'Play Speed', with options such as 'Fast', 'Normal' or 'Slow' to choose from.
The program enables you to adjust the 'Volume' either from the context menu, the 'Audio' menu or using the assigned hotkeys, 'CTRL + Up' and ''CTRL Down', as well as simply mute it. You can zoom in on a video by 50, 100 or 200 percent.
Anansi Media Hub is quite simple to handle, requiring a minimum level of experience or knowledge in working with such tools. However, it only offers a limited amount of functions and features, being less likely to stand a fighting chance when competing with more popular media players.
To conclude, Anansi Media Hub is a lightweight utility which can render a wide range of media formats, both audio and video, showing promise for future development.
