A new program from Digiarty called 5kplayer bills itself as being what a proper media player should be. And having tried it, I tend to agree that it's a pretty impressive piece of work. It'll play your audio and video files, as well as allow you to access streaming radio stations. Plus, it'll stream your content to an Apple AirPlay if you have one, and there's even a handy Youtube downloader built in too. So you can grab a copy of any interesting video and keep it on your PC for subsequent playback or editing.
5kplayer is free, and you'll find it at www.5kplayer.com. The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust. It's a download of around 30 MB. I tried it on Windows 10, but it should work on 7 and above.
Even if you're not in the market for yet another media player, this is a handy Youtube downloader so is definitely worth trying for that capability alone.
