Quick installation and clear-cut environment
The installation process does not bring any kind of surprises and it is over in a few seconds, while the UI you come face to face with happens to enclose quite a modern and clean build. As a result, it can be used by anybody with great ease, from beginners to experienced people.
The main window includes a panel where to view the image feed, as well as playback controls (play, fast forward, next or previous frame etc.), a volume bar and a few other buttons.
Change colors and control frame rate
This software utility enables you to watch DCP movies, and only upload them with the help of the incorporated file browser, as the “drag and drop” feature is not supported. Aside from that, you can easily zoom in and out, loop the video and change the playback speed, the colors and the resolution.
View an check hashes, and display metadata details
A metadata inspector enables you to view information regarding the clip, such as resolution, bit depth, quality layers, creator, title, edit rate and frame count. It is possible to check the hashes of all opened files, view logs and save them to the hard drive as an XML, run in a full screen mode and show FPS stats, drop frames, time code and source info.
To sum up, easyDCP Player is a simple, yet efficient piece of software, which does not put a strain on the system’s performance. The response time is good, the environment is friendly and there are sufficient options to keep you busy for a good period of time.
