AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Embarcadero Technologies (a division of IDERA), a leading provider of software solutions for application development, today announced that ALLPlayer is the January winner of its Cool App contest. ALLPlayer is a popular free program that plays movies and TV shows with subtitles through virtually all video media and formats on the Internet.
ALLPlayer automatically searches and downloads matching subtitles for media files and gives users the option to choose the font, size, style and position of the subtitles. The “search and watch” feature quickly searches all drives on a user’s computer, displays a full list of TV shows and movies that are available and allows viewers to watch immediately, no matter the format.
“It’s often the practical, real-world apps like ALLPlayer that get us the most excited about how people are using Embarcadero,” said Jim McKeeth, lead developer evangelist and engineer at Embarcadero. “ALLPlayer solves the fundamental problem of navigating multiple video formats elegantly to enrich the viewing experience for everyone.”
ALLPlayer features include automatic codecs updates, cooperation with subtitles servers for downloading subtitles in multiple languages and the ability to play BitTorrent movies and series with matching subtitles. It also provides remote control and keyboard hotkeys and parental controls. ALLPlayer is available for desktop Windows and mobile platforms, such as Android, iPad and iPhone iOS.
“Making ALLPlayer as effective and user friendly as it is today was a major challenge, but using RAD Studio and Delphi made developing the program as painless as it could possibly be,” said Jaroslaw Matuszewski of ALLPlayer Group Ltd. “Embarcadero’s tools have been integral to creating millions of happy customers and our business success. The Cool App win is a tremendous honor, and we look forward to years of innovation using Embarcadero technology.”
Embarcadero’s Cool App contest is open to any business or consumer application built with RAD Studio, Delphi or C++Builder. Qualifying apps can use VCL, FireMonkey, DataSnap, EMS, FireDAC, InterBase and any other components, libraries, services, sites, infrastructures, APIs or devices. Embarcadero awards Cool App contest winners a $500 Amazon gift card and winning submissions are also highlighted on the company’s YouTube channel.
