The media player processes and displays videos in the Blu-ray quality and above. It supports 1080p HD visual effects, 4K, 5K and 8K Ultra HD formats. Select a preferred audio output, add subtitles, create a playlist and access the media info of the file that is currently playing.

8K Player is a media player developed by Dimo Software capable of playing HD multimedia files without reducing the audio and video quality.
The program has a basic user interface, with a poorly crafted main menu, no extra skin themes and no graphic customizations.

8K Player is equipped with various features, such as the possibility of adding bookmarks, taking snapshots, or even creating GIFs from selected video scenes. Furthermore, it has a screen recording function that can be used to select scenes from clips and share them with family and friends. Also, when playing a video, the users can select the preferred audio output and subtitles along with the media info of the file.

The supported disc and file formats include Blu-ray, DVD, H.265, H.264, 4K, 5K, 8K, UHD movies, MKV, FLV, AVI, MOV, DTS, and Dolby Digital.

To summarize, 8K Player is a clever media player solution to take into consideration. It may not have the prettiest GUI or the cheapest price, but it does bring the cinema into your home.
