VPlayer is a lightweight Windows video player that can handle the common video formats on the market, while offering a very simple interface to interact with its users.
There’s not much to configure about the program and this can only be good news for beginners who are looking for a full-featured video player to do its job with no fuss.
A settings screen is also available, but most of the options concern the look of the program which can be further tweaked with new skins and different colors. Subtitle support is also available, again with multiple configurable parameters such as transparency level, colors, size and font.
File associations can be configured with the help of a dedicated screen, and so is the case of on-screen display, with parameters concerning font, colors and position.
The bad thing about VPlayer is that it supports only a limited amount of video formats, which include ASF, AVI, MPA, MPEG, MPE, MPG, WMV and DAT. As you can see, some very popular video formats are missing completely, so VPlayer could disappoint a lot of users.
The program doesn’t slow down the system at all, but it becomes unresponsive on Windows 7 every once in a while.
All in all however, VPlayer can serve its purpose with minimum configuration options which, again, is only good news for rookies. They only need a simple application that doesn’t need further customization to do its job and VPlayer seems to be exactly this kind of tool.
