The installation process is fast and easy; you just need to pay attention to not installing the Ask Toolbar and you can either accept or refuse an offer from AVG.
Unlike other players, after set up is ready, GOM offers to guide you through an optional setup process in order to optimize your user experience after assessing sound and monitor settings.
The interface of GOM Player is simple and attractive, but it also hides some secrets for advanced users, too.
This player is easily recognizable among others due to its orange, silver and black combination of colors, and to its logo (a paw of a bear), but this doesn’t make it less professional or reliable than other media players.
No matter what format is your movie or your music, GOM will play it for you flawlessly. Between the formats supported by this application we can mention ASF, MP3, MP4, AVI, OGG, WMV, 3GP, VOB, MPEG, AMR, AVC, audio CD formats, DVDs, Video CD, SVCD and many others.
A complete movie experience should not overlook subtitles. GOM Player supports Unicode Text Subtitles, .smi, .srt, .sub, .ssa, .ass, .idx, and embedded subtitles of ASF, MKV and OGM.
You can configure your subtitles as you wish, and change fonts, size, effects, position, character spacing and many other text editor-like options.
The developers of this virtual item have kept things as simple as possible for the average user; the menu is intuitive and you are ready to use it even at the first contact with GOM Player.
It is a media player definitely worth trying!
