CHENGDU, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DearMob releases 5KPlayer for Windows version 3.1 lately, hitting another success on Microsoft Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 after earning 397,304 downloads on Windows 10 PCs among the most popular media players for Windows 10. Multiple aspects of this free video music player have been optimized including: a speed-up in YouTube video download spurred by new Intel Skylake processor, expanded native support for H.265, H.264 and more 4K UHD video codec. 5KPlayer users can now experience AirPlay streaming with Surface Book and Surface Pro 4, in precisely the same quality as Macbook Pro and iPad Pro video and music AirPlay.
5KPlayer as a multi-purpose media player has made quick response to Windows OS upgrade consecutively: Being not only a free alternative to the Windows Media Center halted in Windows 10, it is making the best out of Microsoft's new Core i7 for online video downloads; revamped together is its video compatibility to support H.264, H.265 and VOB which Windows Media Center won't play, as well as an overture to realize Apple AirPlay on Windows powered devices to present sleek wireless streaming.
Surface Book or Surface Pro 4 can now save video download time by two-thirds with 5KPlayer for Windows version 3.1 installed, given an average bandwidth of 25Mbps in U.S. families. The Intel Skylake processor which Microsoft adopted in this product generation, can handle 4K UHD films at 60fps on 3 displays simultaneously. Seizing the remarkable upgrade in hardware, 5KPlayer is taking its YouTube video download speed to a next stage.
Customers in favor of Windows 10 OS while not being content with the limited video format of Windows Media Player may find 5KPlayer just suitable. Now that H.265 and H.264 - video codec for 4K UHD videos - matters more than ever, WMP shows no intent to follow suit. Thus in joint effort with YouTube and Netflix, which supply an increasing number of 4K contents, 5KPlayer configures codec support for H.264, H.265, VP8 and VP9. The thorough regeneration of 4K UHD video from H.264 to H.265 takes time, hence 5KPlayer embraces both to leave a buffering zone for streaming media providers and the customers.
The competition between Microsoft and Apple is stepping up since the release of Surface Book, and 5KPlayer AirPlay seems to add value to the latter. The 13.5-inch display may not be glitzy enough to clinch a deal - though nothing stops Microsoft from reaching the top end of laptop processing speed - but 5KPlayer seems to increment the $1499 laptop and the $899 tablet without charging users: By enabling equivalent AirPlay video quality while maintaining the convenience and compatibility of Windows OS. This is, without doubt, good news to both Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book users.
Despite the absence of multi-media solutions on Windows 10, it is cheerful to see Microsoft developing quality devices by leaps and fogs. When Microsoft focuses more on Lumia 950/950 XL, Surface Pro 4, Surface Book, HoloLens and other products, 5KPlayer makes video and music playback, downloading and streaming on Windows 10 devices more professional, uplifting the user experience as a whole.
