Better than VLC

"I have used VIC player for years and this performs better than VLC which lags so much upon starting a video. Best of all it plays 1080p video smothly. The design is simply, navigation is easy. Would like to see a little more controls. With the way that it is, it's still great. "A Must Download""

"It VLC with the quality and ease of Quicktime. I had a video that needed good de-interlacing and VLC made it look like crap. Thanks to VideoPlayer it looks great!! I hope they make an iOS version."

Play 4K/5K/1080p HD videos. No Bufferings or Crashes

4K technology is changing the way we watch videos. With four times the resolution of 1080p videos, HD content playback is a resource-intensive task, and if a video player is not capable of coping with these high standards, expect buffering, choppy, or crashes. Cisdem believes that high-quality video experiences matter. We develop technology to empower Video Player play 1080P and 5K videos with smooth video and no bugs or artifacts. Every image, every action, still or moving, is delicately displayed.
