This article is aimed at providing useful information regarding playback on KMPlayer.

The KMPlayer Overview

The KMPlayer is a versatile media player which can cover various types of container format such as VCD, DVD, AVI, MKV, Ogg Theora, OGM, 3GP, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, and QuickTime among others. It handles a wide range of subtitles and allows you to capture audio, video, and screenshots in many ways.

Tweak

By default KMPlayer utilises it's own internal codecs for video and displaying subtitles.
The codecs that come with the player are good, but are unable to show styled subs and ordered chapters.

This problem can be fixed by allowing KMPlayer to use external codecs found in codec packs like CCCP.
