Is it possible to play multimedia files without installing codecs to your computer? Yes, if you use ALShow.
This application allows you to play DVDs and movies without needing additional software.

ALShow supports a variety of video formats, such as MP4, FLV, AVI and DVD movies.

Formerly known as ALPlayer, ALShow features the most popular codecs and when it identifies a file needing a rare codec, it installs it for you.

It is as simple as that!

ALShow offers you almost all the features you could expect from a regular media player and a bit more. Besides working without codecs, it provides other useful features, too.

With ALShow, you can hide and mute the main window using just the Escape key (in case your boss comes).

Moreover, you can bookmark your video (so you can see your favorite scenes later), capture parts of the movie (images, audio or video shots) and loop.

Looping means that you can review the same scene over and over again; just mark the starting and the ending points and don’t worry about anything else.

The file formats supported by ALShow are 3G2, 3GP, 3GP2, 3GPP, ASF, ASK, ASX, AVI, BMK, DAT, DIVX, FLV, IFO, K3G, M1V, M2T, M2TS, M2V, M4V, MKA, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPA, MPE, MPEG, MPG, MTS, OGM, RM, RMVB, SKM, SMI, SMIL, SRT, SUB, SWF, TP, TS, VOB, WM, WMP, WMV, WMX and WVX.

ALShow used to be called ALPlayer until the 2.1.0.7 version was released. Some improvements made to the final releases of this application were fixing security issues, changing the interface and the skins and better playback support for various file formats.

The developers of ALShow have taken care of everything: codecs, supported formats and playback options. All you have to do is to install it and enjoy your favorite movies.
