The Best Media Player to Play Discs/Folders/ISO Files and Videos on Win/Mac
Nowadays, a large number of players flood into the market, which creates much more choices for users, but at the same time, which also makes it harder for users to choose the best media player from so many competitors. Which player on earth is more competent? Here, we might as well start from such perspectives to think about this question. In the first place, consider whether there is a format limit when you use the player to play your favorite videos. Normally speaking, the best media player is expected to play all formats of videos, no matter it is DVD, Blu-ray folders, ISO files or others. Secondly, focus on the play mode of the player. The more it can satisfy users’ play habit and psychology, the better this player is. Nothing is more terrific if you can do some pre-settings when your video is playing in this software. Is there such a miraculous player in our life? The answer is definitely Yes. Now, let’s get together to learn about DVDFab Player 5, presently the most powerful player to play back DVD & Blu-ray Discs/ISO files/folders, and unprotected 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray ISO files/folders.

One of the most marvellous designs of DVDFab Player 5 is its Navigation Menu, which distinguishes it from other media players. Click Playback on the left side after you click Settings and there is two Menu Mode options for the DVD and UHD/Blu-ray Playback: Simple Mode and Menu Mode. The Simple Mode provides you with the auto-collected movie information, including director, category, year, actors and a simple plot. You can click the Play button to directly play the main movie title, or you can choose to view other titles presented at the bottom of the interface.

Click Video on the left side and you will find the HDR Mode. Besides, you can adjust the Output Color Range from the two choices: Full Color Range (0-255) and Limited Color Range (16-235). Not all the computer environment is ready for HDR or 4K UHD contents.

Of course, you can also decide Left view first or right view first. Then, with the help of 3D glasses, your video watching experience must be very pleasant.

Alternatively, you can right-click your mouse and choose Subtitle to perform the same operations above, and add the external subtitle for your playing video by clicking Load subtitle.

As we all know, the area code of Blu-ray discs can be divided into A, B and C. Blu-ray discs of A area can only be played in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and some regions in Southeast Asia; Blu-ray discs of B area can only be played in Europe and Australia; Blu-ray discs of C area can be played in China, Russia and India.
