Despite the fact that the latest version of Light Alloy was released more than half a year ago, its popularity stays at a certain level (you can download Light Alloy from our website).
Free status of the player is probably due to the fact that the developer is also from Russia. "Extra - interface" as it may be called, is the first thing that attracts attention to this player. All buttons in the program as well as in the settings, and the main control panel, are in a kind of "kiddy" style. You can find this more an advantage than a disadvantage, since such buttons look pretty nice. There are no annoying stereotypical models which can also be considered a plus. In addition, all the buttons are easy to remove, using the context menu, opened by right-clicking on the viewed area.
Significant disadvantages of the player relate to the language support. The program is free only in Russian version, for others, the localized version will cost $ 10. Furthermore, the application is not cross-platform and works only with Windows, and updates are very rare.
Supported video formats: M1V, M2V, MPE, MKV, OGM, SBA RM, QT, RV (Light Alloy free download is available on our website).
Supported audio formats: AIFC, AIF, AIFF, IT, AU, KAR, MOD, MKA, S3M, STM, SND, XM.
