Potplayer is another free video viewer for your Windows PC, and it has support for devices that are running XP or later and ranges up to Windows 8.1, which is a good thing we hope. It does not matter if you’ve a set of hardware that is low enough; Potplayer will utilize the Hardware Acceleration feature to make sure that you’re able to get an best media experience from your desktop. There are more features when it comes to playback as well.

For instance, unlike the aforementioned video player software, Potplayer supports different kinds of 3D Glasses and 3D-oriented features of Potplayer are just awesome from the user’s point of view. Also, there is an option to get 3D output as per what your requirement is. In addition, Potplayer offers support for almost every codec you would need in the whole journey of movie watching and it supports different kinds of subtitle files as well. Screen snapshot feature, the ability to choose between sound cards, scene bookmarking etc are worth noting too.

KMPlayer is a free video viewer for download. One outstanding feature of KMPlayer is that even when other video players become dumbstruck if the output is of a non-common format, KMPlayer would be able to play that file, quite smoothly & there are impressive features too. Some of those features of KMPlayer include its support for 3D, 2K, 4K & UHD, presence of internal codec files that make playback easier than you except, provided the PC may have relatively lower configuration.

Rather than merely playing files, you have an option to set up libraries when it comes to videos and music; thus, you can get an awesome media experience. Similarly, there is an option to play DVDs well, with all the features you could expect in a typical DVD player. One of the other features that we praise KMPlayer for, is the ability to adjust the playback screen with respect to our screen, convenience of use and there’s an in-built subtitle editor too.

Out of all these free download video viewers, I prefer Leawo Blu-ray player, my personal choice when it comes to watching films. I love its neat interface and HD watching experience and its quiet handy when using.
