If you're the type of person who enjoys spending time listening to music or watching movies with friends and family, then a multimedia player can come in handy. One such audio/video player is Scorpio Player, a futuristic-looking and simple-to-learn tool for when you want to enjoy your favorite tunes or movie trilogies.
The application greets you with an interface which is pure eye-candy for those who love all things celestial or mysterious. The dark theme coupled with sleek toolbars and highlight animations on the mouse cursor are a treat for those who value aesthetics above all else. Of course, the user interface's visuals can be toned down from the settings menu, thus making this application appropriate even for low-end hardware platforms.
The menu sports few selectable buttons, but once you start pressing them, that's when the real space magic begins: a plethora of settings to better customize your multimedia viewing experience, which is likely to satisfy even picky users.
Another advantage is that it supports a wide variety of formats, like RMVB, MKV, FLV, TS, M2TS, VOB, WMV, AVI, MP4, MP3, AVI, H. 264, WEBM, AAC, APE, FLAC and OGG.
Scorpio Player allows drag and drop actions as well as importing multiple files for quickly creating playlists, but file importing can also be done manually with the built-in search bar.
For those capable of listening/watching two things at a time, this multimedia player can launch multiple instances by simply selecting the "New window" from the "Open" tab. Sound quality can also be adjusted, either with the channel selection, audio device selection or fine-tuning via the built-in equalizer.
Your favorite songs may be grouped into playlists which the application remembers, while video files can also have bookmark support, allowing you to pick up where you left off in case you have to take a break from a movie. Movies that you regularly watch can be added to a favorites list for quick access later.
The application abandons the old "boring text at the bottom of the screen" idea when it comes to subtitles. Apart from the fact that it can automatically search for subtitles on the Internet based on the video file's name, you can modify how the subtitles appear on the screen. Customizable font size or opacity or adjustable positioning are just some of the options put at your disposal by this software application.
With pristine visuals and an abundance of customization options, this audio/video player is a good tool for when you just want to lay back, relax and enjoy a nice evening. Thanks to its cross-platform support (Xbox, HoloLens, mobile), you are not just limited to watching movies in front of your PC, but also on other favorite devices.
