Configuring the server-client connection is easy, considering you just have to enter the server's IP address and port number in order to sign in, but not before generating an API key for Emby Theater in Emby Server. Alternatively, you can log in via Emby Connect, so as to avoid having to specify the server configuration details.
Once connected, Emby Theater displays a list of all the folders in your library, exactly as you have organized them during server setup. The application enables you to sort files in your library by various criteria, such as the file name, the rating, the creation date, IMDb rating or release date.

A straightforward VLC-based player that lest you run multiple videos into the same interfaces, providing individual controls and basic multimedia functions.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you have needed to play multiple videos at the same time, but a single program wasn't enough? If you do, you probably have three or four multimedia players on your drive. GridPlayer can be a solution for anyone interested in playing multiple videos while keeping their drive as clean as possible. In addition, this player is built using VLC as an inspiration point, and who is not familiar with VLC?
The installed version of the player requires you to have a certain version of Python on your system, but if you go with the portable version, besides the perks of having the app at your disposal at any time, the Python element is included with the archive.
GridPlayer opens up with a blank window that invites you to drop videos in. You can add one at a time or an entire playlist, it's up to you. Even if all videos are starting at the same time, individual controls are assigned. Pause or run videos at will, or double-click a clip to highlight it on full screen. How the app is behaving in full screen in relation to the background videos can be changed from the settings menu.
The context menu is slightly different from what VLC comes with. That is a reason why VLC users should have an easier time getting around the player compared to those new to it. Adding files, opening or closing playlists, changing the grid's look, and checking out the settings tab are half of what the context menu can do for you.
To summarize, GridPlayer is an excellent tool to have around, especially if you are trying to watch multiple videos within the same interface. The VLC architecture is a huge plus, helping with the overall learning curve.

Lightweight video player app you can use you quickly and easily play your favorite clips, as well as add them from various sources on the internet via links.
Video players come in different shapes and sizes. Some are equipped to cater more to power users and offer additional functionality, while others focus on being as lightweight as they can be.
With regard to that, Video Player is kind of in the middle: it offers some useful, extra features — such as looping, time-stretching, and external source playing capabilities —while remaining lightweight in a minimalist, yet sleek interface.
This is quite a lightweight app, and it's immediately noticeable at first glance. After starting the program, adding video files can be done in two ways: either locally, through the Upload button, or externally, by inputting a link that leads to your clip. Dragging and dropping did not work for us.
Should you want to make any changes while something is playing, the minimalist interface will not interfere with your content. Adding multiple clips is possible, and cycling through them can be done by interacting with the arrows that appear when you hover over the left and right parts of your video. The app also supports the adding of subtitles, making movie-watching more convenient.
Accessible either from the main menu or through the arrow keys is the fast-forward option, which you can use to slow or increase the pace of your clips.
Looping is also possible, and you're allowed to loop the entire video or just parts of it. The app can export your looped file in the .mp4 format.
The ability to add stuff from the web sounded very exciting on paper. Sadly, we did not have much luck in our testing, as adding YouTube links returned nothing in the end. The same was true when inputting Vimeo links.
More than that, the "Reverse Video" feature simply did not work, and the result stayed the same, irrespective of the clip's length. We were also a tad disappointed when the app refused to recognize the videos we'd dropped into it. This made us have to resort to inputting our things through the program's Upload menu, which took more time and was less convenient.
In conclusion, Video Player is a promising app that manages to be both lightweight and still pack some interesting features. Despite the shortcomings, it has potential, so it remains to be seen how much regular updates will improve it.

mrViewer is an old-school looking application that can help you enjoy both your videos and your images right within the same window, while offering you the possibility to attach audio tracks along the way.
The GUI of mrViewer is reminiscent of Linux software, so you will not be getting any polished-looking menus or buttons. Instead, you get functional right-click menus that provide quick access to all relevant functions.
Also, it needs to be emphasized that some of the buttons do not have actual titles, instead you need to hover your mouse cursor over them to understand their purpose. Even though this is meant to make the windows seem less cluttered, it might end up confusing some of the users.
Unlike what you would expect from a viewing app, this utility can be used to add some freehand drawings to your currently open file, as well as several shapes like circles, lines, arrows, and even a text message. Moreover, you can tamper with the hue, brightness, contrast and saturation levels, while constantly keeping an eye on the result.
As previously mentioned, mrViewer supports both images and videos, meaning you can apply these modifications to either a still image or a frame from a loaded clip.
Once you are done with altering your picture or video, you can take the final step, that of exporting your work to a standalone file. When dealing with videos, you can either save the entire file, or the current frame or reel.
The supported formats are quite varied, no matter the target format you are interested in.
All in all, mrViewer can come in handy to all those who do not necessarily look for polished GUIs in their apps, and who would rather spend some time getting used to the plethora of functions a tool provides.

With the big number of streaming services available, people tend to forget that video players still exist. We mostly watch movies online or at the cinema nowadays, so these programs aren't used as much as they were at some point.

As you can figure out from its name, this program is good for playing various video files. It supports a lot of well-known formats, such as MP4, FLV or WebM.
Not only that, but it can be used to play audio files as well. So if you like to have your music available locally and not just online, you don't need to worry about having to find another program to listen to it.
If you want to play something, you first need to import it/them to the program. This can be done either by drag and drop or through the application's menu. You have the option to add files or even entire folders.
When you have a lot of local files that you want to watch or listen to, it isn't exactly convenient to add them to the program individually whenever one finishes playing.
Instead, you can create playlists. You just need to have all the files you want imported onto the program and then save them as a playlist.
The program is good for playing all sorts of content. There are other free and more popular options out there that offer more features, but it is worth at least trying All Video Player out.
