Conclusion and performance
It does not burden the system’s performance, as the CPU and memory usage is low at all times and you can run it along with others programs without experiencing issues. All tasks are performed in a timely manner, the interface is suitable to all users and there are sufficient options integrated to keep you busy for quite a while. However, in our tests there were a few problems with the proper display of the English language, some words appearing entirely in Polish.
Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say ALLPlayer proves to be a pretty reliable and efficient piece of software.
