Kantaris – awesome new free media player jazzes up our favourite VLC program

Kantaris

Hard core media junkies who know and love the most awesome VLC media player will adore the arrival of this new, snazzier player based on the same codebase. Developed by Swedish student Christofer Persson, Kantaris offers all the fabulous ‘play anything’ ease of use of VLC, but wraps it up in a much more accessible, user friendly and dare we say modern, interface.

It’s awesome! A super easy video library function, LastFM integration and in-built Apple movie trailer search engine. What’s not to love? It will even play .rar compressed archives without you having to expand them. The only small thing it could do with are a few mouseover help texts on the bottom right menu icons to make it easier to navigate the special features. /Nit-pick.

Brilliant! Get it!

 Kantaris Media Player aims to be an all-in-one media player that provides a great audio and video experience. Kantaris is an open-source alternative to Windows Media Player with similar GUI and features. Video playback is based upon Videolan Client (VLC) which enables Kantaris to play almost anything without the need of installing any codecs separately. It features an attractive skin, some nice audio visualizations, and integration with Last.fm and Apple movies trailers.
