A free and powerful media player

StellarPlayer is a free video player software that allows you to easily play and watch video files. Developed by Coldlake Technology (Wuhan) Co., Ltd., this multimedia program supports various media file formats, HD and 4K video playback, numerous streaming protocols, and even different subtitle formats.

Similar to other video players, StellarPlayer boasts clear and crisp graphics for your files, as well as smooth and low latency playback. It also offers a variety of configurations and even the option to install supported plugins. However, its interface has a smattering of Chinese characters—which you can’t change to English.

Take your pick

The core of a good video player application is its wide scope of support. StellarPlayer falls easily enough into this category with just how many formats it can play. It accepts popular video formats like MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV, MKV, HD, 4K, Blu-ray, and HDR. It can also play audio-only files like MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG, among others. Plus, if you prefer streaming videos via website links, this software can handle them as well—offering protocols like HTTP, RTMP, UDP, and FTP

The playback effect and audio direct output here are clear and smooth, avoiding any drop in the file’s quality thanks to its impressive  CPU and GPU tuning technology. Its decoding features multiple graphics cards and AI intelligence to help automatically select the right option for your hardware—such as auto-analysis of HDR videos for lower use of resources when playing them. This program’s high-speed motion compensation algorithm can even improve your videos’ playback to 60 FPS.

Highly user-friendly

Upon launching, you’re greeted with two panes: the left one containing the main buttons you can use for quick playbacks and the right one containing your current playlist. You can hide the right panel with the arrow beside it or customize it using the Playlist Management feature. The four main buttons are Open File, Open Folder, Open URL, and Projection. The last one enables you to screencast—using DLNA projection to either receive feedback from other devices or cast videos to them wirelessly.

Aside from these, you can configure various settings for this video player—such as recordings, screenshots, rendering, hotkeys, and video behavior. You can’t customize the subtitles themselves extensively through this but it does support formats like SRT, ASS, SSA, and SUB. However, while even the program’s theme can be changed, you can’t switch to another language. This is a hassle as the default language is English while some of the labels on the controls are in Chinese—and you can’t fix them with a quick language interface change.

Versatile in its scope

All in all, StellarPlayer is a solid all-around media player for any type of user. While its settings aren’t too in-depth and there are some interface language issues here and there, the program’s performance itself is satisfactory and can be used for either work-related or leisure viewing. This is a highly recommended software for those looking into free and powerful video tools.

StellarPlayer is a free, pure and powerful media player that supports playback of various formats of video and audio.

Useful Media Player
As a media player, of course, it should support many video and audio formats. It supports mp4, avi, flv, wmv, mkv, m4v, mov, rmvb, blu-ray, 4k, rmvb, swf and so on. More importantly, the playback is always auto-optimized to suit the preferred output device. This app can also play various formats of audio, such as mp3, wma, wav, flac, dat, ac3, aac, ape, ogg, ra... The playback of streaming protocols can be allowed. We just need to copy the streaming URL to this app, then we can watch the related videos.

Playlist Management
When we use this app to watch films or other files, playlists can be created to help us to manage audio and video files. We can create different categories to place different playlists, which is easy for us to find any files! We can drag files to adjust the order or category.

Subtitle Setting
StellarPlayer can download and sync subtitles when we play movies. It’s convenient for us. Of course, we can also add subtitles manually and customize the text’s appearance on-screen, such as the font style and font color. This app can support different subtitle files, including srt, ass, ssa, sub.

Our Differences
StellarPlayer supports DLNA projection and is available to receive screen projection from other devices or cast videos to other devices. This app can improve the FPS of videos to 60fps with a simple click and support the playback of videos with HDR effect. HDR videos can be automatically recognized and parsed. We can enjoy these functions without a complicated setup.

What’s more, StellarPlayer supports audio direct output, which means that we can enjoy the more realistic and natural sound. Many video players don’t have this feature or must experience this feature after paying. However, all functions of StellarPlayer are free to users.

StellarPlayer allows users to customize the skin of the main interface. What a sweet design! We can create a player of our own style. Anyway, StellarPlayer will be a good choice for us.
