Coincidentally discovered: playing video..

Post by mrwul » Sun Oct 14, 2018 1:09 pm

When I was clicking thru images, I selected a .mp4 file and XnViewMP started playing it...
Shame on me, but I have to confess: I wasn't aware of that.
I have been using a different video player all the time.

Went over to the XnViewMP home page, it is all about displaying images.
Many formats, but all images. Not a word about playing videos.
Okay, it may not be entirely the same as dedicated players, e.g. I can't select subtitles, but nonetheless, it plays .mp4, .mkv
Very nice!

Maybe one day, those features will come... :wink:
