Light Alloy is a compact media player designed to help you load and play most popular multimedia formats, such as AVI, VOB, FLV, MKV and MOV. It is wrapped in a seemingly simple, yet clear-cut interface so that you can enjoy watching movies or listening to music.

Built-in media codecs

The program integrates a set of codecs which make it possible to play media content immediately right the installation. Apart from these built-in codecs put at your disposal, you can switch to the ones installed on your computer (if any), depending on your preferences.

File type and subtitle support

It supports high quality video content such as DVD movies and Blu-ray discs, in addition to MKV and MP4 files. Subtitles are supported, automatically identified and loaded with the movie, provided that they are in the same location as the clip. Plus, if you notice any mistakes, then you can adjust the timing in order to synchronize the text to the motion picture.

Standard, yet useful media player controls

The main application window contains a media player seeker and allows you to adjust the volume level as well as to put together a playlist to continuously play multiple files without user intervention. Another important aspect worth mentioning is that the PC can be scheduled to shut down as soon as the video stops playlist (in case you fall asleep).

Additional features and customization settings

Light Alloy lets you go through a list of multiple skins to choose for the interface, and you can also activate OSD (on-screen display). What's more, you can sort the playlist by various criteria, set bookmarks, search for a particular file, make image adjustments pertaining to the brightness, contrast, saturation and aspect ratio, examine file properties, schedule an audio alarm to go off at a specific time, and much more. Plus, you can make file associations and reconfigure keyboard shortcuts. WinLIRC support is integrated.

Evaluation and conclusion

The software utility worked smoothly in our tests, without triggering the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error messages. It had minimal impact on computer performance. All things considered, Light Alloy seems to supply users with a generous set of skills for playing audio and video settings, so you can definitely give it a shot.
