ALShow is a media player that has built-in codecs for playing different kinds of video file formats including AVI, MPEG, VOB, WMV, ASF, and MPG. In some cases, videos use other codecs that may not be built-in to the program. When this happens, the application searches for the right kind of codec and downloads it in order for the file to be played. One of the main features of the media player is the bookmark function. This allows users to bookmark a part of a movie so that it can be viewed later on without having the need to search for the scene again. This feature is also useful if the user needs to stop and resume the movie at a later time.
ALShow also allows users to loop video segments. This can be done by setting a start point and end point. The segment can be played over and over again. Users can also capture parts of the video being played. This includes the audio, a part of the video, or a screenshot.
Other features of the application include the following:
• Hide and mute the player with the ESC key
• Wide variety of supported formats
• Provides plenty of options for customization
