Advanced Karaoke Player
Advanced Karaoke Player is a Windows tool whose purpose is to help you play and manage karaoke playlists and DVD/VCD movies.
Not much to like about the GUI
The application does not impress in the visual department. Its features are not at all intuitive, so you are likely to spend extra time in order to understand how it works.
To make things even worse, there’s no support for a help manual that could shed some light upon the functions of the program. The utility does not sport a clear and coherent structure of its features, so you do not know where to get started. You can use several skins for changing the looks of the tool but some features become invisible when you apply them.
Advanced Karaoke Player doesn’t offer support for a standard audio player integrated within its main layout but it actually shows only a few buttons for playing, pausing or repeating the current selection.
What’s more, you are allowed to jump to the next item in the list, keep tracks of your audio files with the aid of a playlist, adjust the volume using the built-in slider, choose between several preset artists, and search for songs by code.
Advanced Karaoke Player gives you the possibility to work with a media manager that allows you to import songs from your computer, organize your movies with the aid of preset and user-defined categories, as well as password-protect the media manager. It works with DAT, MPG, AVI, WMV, AST, VOB, RM, and RMVB file format.
In conclusion, Advanced Karaoke Player does not bring anything new to the category of karaoke software applications. A major drawback is the interface which makes the learning process difficult and demanding. It needs GUI and functionality improvements in order to compete with other programs.
