SockPlayer Review

Play multiple video formats along with a screen capture utility
A review of SockPlayer by Tina de Pierre

SockPlayer is a fully-fledged media player that supports all popular video and audio formats.

As you might expect, this media player has all of the same controls you would expect such but it also includes a ton of other things which can make it useful like rotate, mirror, flip, de-interlace as well as an audio equalizer.

SockPlayer also includes a video capture tool which can record your entire desktop for specific periods of 5, 60 or 300 minutes or for an unspecified amount of time (unlimited based on disk space). Other video capture capabilities include capture from webcam or another video source connected.

SockPlayer can also add effects to what you're watching real time like de-block for pixelated movies, add noise for that old film feel and can also blur or sharpen images while you're watching them.

The audio player tools that come packed with this program include a karaoke mode, volume normalization and the ability to switch between audio channels like surround sound or just dual-channel stereo sound.

In conclusion, SockPlayer includes many different audio and video tools for enhancing your playback capabilities while also added some character to video playback with its video filters.
