ALPlayer is a multimedia player that comes equipped with codecs so that users do not need to download additional codecs to play different kinds of audio and video files. The application has a simple interface similar to that of other video players. In the event that the player does not have the codec for the file, it automatically looks for it and downloads it. Here are some of the main features of the software:

• Bookmark – The application has a function that allows users to bookmark certain parts of the movie. This is useful if the user decides to stop in the middle of the movie and decides to resume later on.
• Capturing – The program also has capturing capabilities. ALPlayer can capture the audio from the video clip and screen captures from the video.
• Instant hide and mute – ALPlayer also has instant hide and mute functions. Users can disable the sound or minimize the program by just clicking on a hotkey.
• Supports wide variety of formats – The application supports a wide variety of formats including WMX, AVI, WMV, MPEG, MOV, DIVX, and many others.
• Loop function – With the application, users can loop segments from the video by inputting start and end points.
