Play MP4 files, switch to a full screen display, keep a playlist with favorite clips, take screenshots of the current frame (PNG file format), and alter aspect ratio
MP4 Player is a small video player developed specifically for helping you watch MP4 clips directly from the comfort of your desktop. It can be deployed on all Windows versions out there.
Clean and simple looks
You are welcomed by a plain design that includes all playback controls at the bottom of the main window. MP4 files can be imported in the working environment using the built-in browse button (the drag-and-drop support is not implemented). The tool is not capable of playing other video formats so it only works with MP4 videos.
Video playback capabilities
MP4 Player gives you the possibility to make use of basic playback controls in order to play, pause, or stop the current selection, adjust the volume, and seek for a position in the video streams using the built-in slider.
What’s more, you can change the aspect ratio, take screenshots of the current frame (they are automatically saved to ‘My Pictures’ folder and exported to PNG file format), keep the main window on top of other applications, as well as enable or disable a full screen mode.
Other important configuration tweaks worth being mentioned enable you to create a playlist with multiple MP4 files so you can easily open your favorite videos, remove the selected items or clear the entire playlist with a single click, perform searches, and import/export data from/to plain text file format. Plus, you can make the utility remember the current playlist.
MP4 Player lets you play videos frame by frame, make several corrections to the speed and subtitle delay, show or hide the playlist, as well as make use of preset hotkeys for faster actions. Tests have shown that the utility does not eat up a lot of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.
All things considered, MP4 Player comes packed only with basic features for helping you play MP4 video files, and is suitable especially for less experienced users.
