Gom Player is an apparently simple, yet powerful media player that is able to play back all sorts of files available on the internet. The tool has built-in codecs which allow it to work with various files that might come packed in different formats. If some file still needs a codec, the tool will direct users towards a download location.
Gom Player is one of the players that is able to play back broken AVI files. Thus, users can preview downloading files or play a completely broken file. The playlist feature of the application is designed to provide sorting support to user in a number of ways. Thus, videos and songs can be sorted based on artists, albums or year of appearance. Subtitles are loaded automatically if their name is the same as that of the video but users can drag and drop them if they are not added. Then, they can sync the subtitles with the audio tracks in order to have a good quality experience.
Gom Player can take screenshots of a video file. A keyboard shortcut can be configured for users to achieve this, but there is also the option for the app to do the screenshots automatically, with as many as a thousand images being taken in one session.
