Free MP4 Player
Free MP4 Player comes with a name that clearly reveals its purpose. It is intended to provide you with a simple utility that can be used for playing MP4 videos.
In a section containing an abundance of similar tools, simplicity is probably the only thing that makes this application worth your while. Its main interface resembles that of any video player, comprising a single window where all the options are within reach.
The GUI includes the controls and settings that you would expect from such an utility, namely standard 'Play' and 'Stop' buttons, as well as options for navigating throughout the video (fast-forward). These are accompanied by audio volume adjustment controls and a button that allows you to open the file to play.
Free MP4 Player is dedicated to help you watch MP4 videos and as such, this is the only file format it provides support for. To make things even worse, you are not allowed to create playlists in order to jump from one video to another (each video must be opened individually using the button in the main window) and the drag and drop function is not supported, which is really frustrating, considering ease of use is a strong point of the application.
Designed with ease of use in mind, Free MP4 Player only bundles the basic controls for opening and controlling the playback process. Its straightforward approach makes it suitable for beginners, but even this type of users could find its simplicity rather boring.
While Free MP4 Player does its job as promised, there are various other alternatives out there with a broader feature pack, offering support for MP4 files alongside other formats and not limiting the range of video types you can watch.
