A home entertainment system for your phone, that’s more than just an elaborate media player.
Kinoma Play Review
by on March 13, 2010
On one hand we love Kinoma Play. It tries and succeeds at being more than a standard media player. On the other hand we’d have loved for Kinoma Play to be a really good media player in the first place.
It succeeds wonderfully in many areas and is a little disappointing in others. Let’s start with the bad. It’s not a universal media player, you can’t throw any-old AVI at it, but it does support MPEG-4 and its variants, AVC/H.264, WMV9 and flash video. That means you’ll still be converting or transcoding files.
If you get past that, it’s something of a revelation. An easy-to-use media player is at its heart but its modular design means there are extensions for Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm (but no streaming) even Google Reader.
Some are admittedly hit and miss, the YouTube one wouldn’t load video for us for example. The Google Reader throws you out to a browser to ultimately read articles and streaming media is provided via Orb on your desktop.
It’s not perfect but it’s a well supported application and provides a wide-range of services.
