Most of us are quite happy with our media players. The popularity of online streaming has meant that our reliance on media players is starting to fade away. However, as anybody who still plays videos on their computer directly, a good media player is invaluable. For ages, people have looked at alternatives to the native player that comes with the OS. Over the years, I have used WinAmp, JetAudio, and more recently, VLC Player. All of them were great for their time but lost their charm as technology moved on. 5KPlayer is the latest addition to the list. offering the following features:
5KPlayer – Features
It offers the following features:
- Play 4K/5K/1080p HD videos

- Arrange your files in a media library
- Have built-in AirPlay sender/receiver to stream audio video from iPhone 7.

No need to download extra codecs
What makes this program really handy is that once installed, there is no need to install any extra codec or such like. The package comes complete with all you need. This feature makes it a very handy alternative to VLC Player.
The software comes with built in AirPlay technology. Unlike others, it can act as both a receiver and a sender. It can stream from any iOS 10 device, such as iPhone 7, iPad, iPod or even your Apple Watch. You can watch media on Windows, Mac OS, etc.
Using this, you can also stream your media from anything like a Mac device or a Windows to Apple TV or AirPlay speakers.
You can also configure this to get AirPlay Mirroring. This allows you to replicate your entire iPhone or iPad screen to a relevant device. You can even record!
