Softpedia Editor's Review for Crystal Player Pro
An advanced media player optimized on speed
Written by Elena Opris on November 26th, 2012
Crystal Player Pro is a powerful media player that you can use to view movies. It supports several file types, including 3GP, ASF, AVI, DIVX, FLV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, RMVB and WMV.
The user interface is very appealing (consists of glass and shadows), but navigating through Crystal Player Pro can be a bit tricky - buttons are very small, and you have to hover your mouse and wait some time for the title to appear.
We tested this product on Windows 7. Unfortunately, it could not open 3GP, FLV, MP4 and MPG files in our case (the error says "Can't locate video stream"). But when you drag and drop video files into Crystal Player, the application automatically creates a playlist (you can sort by title, full path, reverse, or randomize).
In Crystal Player Pro, you can toggle color control, adjust brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, sharpness, equalizer, but also apply filters - soften, sharpen, gray scale, auto volume, remove voices (a feature that is not well developed), add base, and accent stereo.
Additionally, you can attach audio to a video file, change aspect ratio, capture an image, zoom in and out, select language, add and customize subtitles (font, color, transparency, shadow, fade out). You can also check out the help file for any information or guidelines on how to use Crystal Player Pro.
In conclusion, Crystal Player Pro is a decent media player, but it definitely needs some touchups (e.g. support for additional video formats, better integration of features). Also, it uses a high amount of system resources.
