Splash 1.6.1 lite

There are a few media players out there now that offload video to the graphics card. Splash is one of them and my favourite.
The interface is very clean, simple and "just works". you don't have to mess about with any codecs or settings. It loads very fast and plays most popular videos.
I ended up forking out for the Pro version for the video enhancements and that has cemented it as my favourite video playing software, beating the former champ VLC!. It smooths out low frame-rates, enhances the image quality and colours. It makes even standard definition videos look vibrant and HD.
The only criticism I have is that enabling the Pro enhancements does eat into the processor a little. If you have an Atom grade CPU or less (with an ION or other GPU) then stick to the lite version, which will still offload to the GPU.
Splash 1.3 lite

Well it play files good enough with nice interface to warrant a good review, HOWEVER :
- Subtitle not automatically loaded even when set
- NO styled subtitle support (fail for anime)
- Some missing code, try playing vorbis with this
- Very crude playlist, try dragging file from explorer to the playlist (not the main window)
Still it has come a long way for such a young player. Personally, I'd like a DS filter support...
