  • I must say, I thought this was a pretty interesting read when it comes to this topic of video players. Liked the material. . .

  • The player is quite nice, specially the interface. But the only downside I see is limited settings. Maybe advanced settings are hidden somewhere but I couldn’t find any option to change fast forwarding speed etc. Wish those setting could be easily accessible, if they exists.

  • I just downloaded,installed and have been using this 5K player this afternoon-evening and I am very impressed with the great sound quality and the high-def quality of the videos! Its amazing that such a device could be downloaded for free!!! I guess today was my lucky day!I love the very simple interface as well…no fuss…no muss!! All very simple and neat.You state that the player is capable of converting audio from videos into mp3 files.My question is can the player convert audio files like mp3 into midi files???That would be a dream come true for me!! Hope that they will make it their next project and notify me for an update when and/or if it can be done!! Thanx, Dave from New York City
