Now that you know how to create your MP4 DVD, it’s now time to figure out which MP4 DVD player is best for you. Although you can still use iSkysoft to watch your DVD, it’s always a wise idea to have a Plan B. To help you out, I decided to dig in to bring you these three top-of-the-line MP4 DVD players that will come in handy regardless of which computer system you’re using.
VLC Media Player
If you like watching movies on your Mac/Windows computer and you know nothing about VLC, please download it now. In fact, VLC has been the undisputed ‘king’ of all media players since its launch in 2001. However, such a title doesn’t come easy. VLC is capable of playing media files of any type including DVD, MP4, M4V, AVI, MP3, MKV, and many others.
On top of that, you can use VLC to convert your MP4 videos to M4V, AVI, FLV, and many other file formats. Moreover, you can burn DVDs with this program, but you can’t convert files into DVD format. Now you see why arming yourself with a powerful converter tool like iSkysoft is vital. But all in all, VLC is an excellent media player.
Hot on the heels of VLC is 5KPlayer which boasts of a more modern user interface, unlike VLC. This program is also free to download and install. And as free as it is, it won’t infect your computer Trojans, virus, or any other unfriendly plug-ins or malware.
Moving forward, you can use 5KPlayer to play any DVD file - be it home-made or commercial DVD. On top of that, 5KPlayer can also support other file formats including APE, FLAC, MP4, , AVI, WMV, and more. If you’re an Apple device user, you can also stream video and music files from iPad, iPhone, and iPod to Windows 7 PC. The only downside is that you can’t use this program as a file conversion tool.
Closing the top three DVD media players is PotPlayer. This South Korean manufactured app is undoubtedly giving the other two options a run for their money. And yes, it shares the developer with the popular KMPlayer. However, PotPlayer falls short of just one thing; this app is compatible with Windows PCs only. So if you’re a Mac user, better look at the other two options.
On a much brighter note, PotPlayer supports several file formats including Blu-ray videos, 3D videos, DVDs, MP4, AVI, MOV, and many other formats. Moreover, you can customize options to your liking. In short, PotPlayer is the best program if you want to handle large files, e.g. Blu-ray.
MP4 is a great file format thanks to its compatibility with modern devices and ability to take up less storage space. So to peacefully enjoy your movie on that old home DVD, you’ll need to convert MP4 to DVD using UniConverter. But the best part is that you can also watch your DVD using the same program. In the meantime, you can continue enjoying your favorite MP4 movies using these three media players.
