We must bear in mind that these specific applications are used for a multitude of tasks related to leisure in the professional environment. Whether to watch work-related videos, our favorite movies and series, listen to music, or view content online, these players are in most computers. What we must take into consideration at the same time is that not all of them have the same functionality or characteristics.
As usual in other types of programs, here we find some proposals that are much better than others. It is precisely for all this that we must consider several sections before deciding on one solution or another. Precisely in these same lines we want to talk about some aspects of writing to look to reject a certain program of this type.
It no longer has support from its developer
As a general rule, or at least it is the most recommended, once we have opted for a multimedia player, we should download it from its official website. This provides us with the most recent version released by its developer, and at the same time we avoid the arrival of malicious codes hidden in the executable. However, it may be the case that, when downloading this new program, we see that its official website no longer exists. It may also be the case that we see that the last version sent is already several years old.
This means that the people in charge of the software that we are going to use no longer offer support to your project. This is a compelling reason why we should discard the use of this program, both for functionality and security.
Limited format support
In addition to being stable, one of the premises that we must demand from any program with these characteristics is its compatibility with multiple formats. In fact, this is a requirement that we should extend to the reproduction of videos and music. With this, what we want to tell you is that we must choose a multimedia player that is compatible with most of the current video and audio formats.
We say all this because there are some somewhat limited alternatives in this regard. Either because they use their own formats, file types limited to a specific set, or simply that they no longer receive support for the most recent ones. This is something that with the passage of time we will surely miss, so it is preferable to look for another proposal.
High resource consumption
These programs that we refer to in these lines must be trained to function correctly in all types of equipment and configurations. Hence the importance that sometimes we can detect each other if we refer to the consumption of PC resources. On certain occasions, and in reality without many at least visible reasons, we notice that consumption of CPU and RAM of some of these reproducers it is excessive.
Therefore, this is something that can directly affect the reproduction of content as such, especially if they are of high quality. It may be the case that we find cuts in the reproduction of both audio and video, which is a serious problem in this regard. Therefore, it is more worth choosing another option that manages to manage those resources more adequately.
