DAPlayer is a free media player with one or two unusual extra features that you won't find everywhere else.
So it doesn't just play common video formats, like MPEG, AVI or WMV, for instance. There's also support for trickier file types, like FLV, RM/ RMBV, OGV and more.
And DAPlayer isn't just another DVD player. It's a region free DVD player, so you won't be hassled with annoying messages about changing your DVD drive from one region to another.
Better still, there's support for playing Blu-ray discs, both commercial and home-made (DAPlayer is compatible with BD+ and AACS-protected discs).
And DAPlayer is happy playing all the regular 1080p/1080i video formats. including M2TS, AVCHD, TP, MPEG-TS, EVO, MKV, AVC and MOD. There's support for HD video mixed-in subtitle tracks. And the program is optimised for performance, with the authors claiming a mere "10% CPU cost on i5 CPU when playing 1080P AVCHD video".
