The software market is filled with video players, so some of the apps are bound to be left in the shadows as they are slowly growing in popularity hoping to become one of the big guys. Dziobas Rar Player is a good example as this tiny utility has been around for a while and has managed to create a steady user base due to its powerful features.
By definition a video player, Dziobas Rar Player is able to play most video formats out there without the need for codecs, which is indeed a great thing. Plus, it has the possibility to open the videos directly from RAR files and, at the same time, to play a movie that has been only partially downloaded.
Users are not likely to encounter any problems when downloading and installing Dziobas Rar Player because everything has been designed to be as simple as possible. Consequently, the interface is also simple and easy to use, even though a more appealing design would surely attract more users.
When playing a movie, users can download the appropriate subtitle from dedicated websites, while also having the possibility to upload their own to the web. Not only can Dziobas Rar Player process a wide range of video formats, but it is also friendly with the PC resources, as it does not stress up the computer too much.
It comes with a lot of video options (rewind, pan screen, framedrop, change speed), as well as audio (delay, mute, overwrite channels) and subtitles ones (change font and position, delay), so users can create the configuration they like best.
All things considered, Dziobas Rar Player is a nice application to use if users are willing to give a chance to the smaller players in the multimedia field. They should, however, keep their expectations quite low, especially considering Dziobas Rar Player works best on older operating systems such as XP and Vista, as it triggers some errors on Windows 7.
