5KPlayer Gets Major Update with New M3U8 Supports, HEVC Playback Improvements, Much More

DearMob’s 5KPlayer upgrads to version 5.5 on both Mac and Windows to offer new features - M3U8 video streaming, highly-efficient HEVC playback, and other miscellaneous changes and corrections.


Sichuan, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2018 -- DearMob's star product 5KPlayer for Windows and Mac has just announced an update to provide new .m3u8 video playlist live streaming and download features, accompanying with improved performance of HEVC/H.265 playback, reinforced hardware decoding ability for UHD 4K 8K videos, and much more.

Version 5.5 of 5KPlayer has refined its role of a media player. The newly-added M3U8 feature brings this player a higher and more appropriate harmonization between online media download and playback. Put simply, it acts as an M3U8 player to play any .m3u8 live streaming video link directly without downloading, thus saving much disk space on computer. It also allows for M3U8 file download for offline watching in case needed. To enjoy M3U8 videos on multiple platforms, 5PKPlayer's DLNA function will be a good call for M3U8 video streaming from computer to various DLNA-compliant devices easily.

Likewise, the strengthened HEVC decoding performance of 5KPlayer shows great power when displaying highly-compressed H.265/H.264 MP4 MOV MKV HDR videos up to 10bit and 300mbps. It performs smoothly all the way while reserving 100% video/audio quality. With Hardware Acceleration being the helpmate, those Herculean decoding tasks are allocated from CPU to GPU. Multitask lovers will find this a super relief as they can now enjoy any resolution videos, however high - UHD 4K or FUHD 8K - while playing video games or shopping online.

Other small changes and amendments include a chunk of bug fixes and performance enhancements like FLAC/MIDI playback bug fixes, FLV fps detection and processing rate improvements, and subtitles auto loading corrections.
