Publisher's Description

RadLight 4 is the first true multimedia player that allows you to fully experience all kind of multimedia content such as DivX, DVD video or AAC/MP4 audio at highest quality possible on the PC. It is the only all-in-one multimedia solution on the market to deliver all of this without being a resource hog or being too complicated. In order to achieve the best user experience and the smoothest playback we needed to take on a different aproach when designing the new generation of RadLight.

RadLight's unique modular architecture and its performance-driven component management allow us to fully utilize the potential of modern PC's while using only limited amount of memory and CPU power. The new sophisticated architecture makes RadLight not only very fast and stable but also highly flexible & extensible via third-party plugins and modules. It's really easy to extend RadLight's functionality or to make it look completely different when necessary.

After seeing all kinds of reviews about this player, I decided to chip in with mine. I paid close attention to this player as it was being developed, and I must say it is, without much ado, one of the best players available out there (that's why the number of dlds is so high). A highly configurable, stable, pleasant and user-friendly interface, all-around media player. Think only about the fact that one can, for instance, assign a specific codec to process a specific kind of file. How many media players allow you to do that? I don't know about you, but I'm tired of media files crashing and not knowing what filter was responsible for it...
As for spyware: guys, you have no clue what you're talking about. It's clean, and no doubt about it. The only real fault I can find with this software is a rather slow development. Other than that... Try it, configure it to the max to your liking, and you'll see how much it will grow on you.

hey, i seriously dont understand why all this negative rating for this player. ya, its not some really remarkable player ... but it definitely DOESN'T CONTAIN any spyware, malware, adware, virus, worm, trojan or any of that s***. looks like it has received a lot of bad rating just because of some negative comments.

All the same, it is not some remarkable player ... i cant understand why the number of downloads are so high...?

A program that asks too much and delivers too little.

They ask $20 for this media player, when the market is already full of more complete, FREE players out there. RadLight's free version requires that you install spyware to run the program. This is completely unacceptable. Any up-and-coming star, as the supporters of RadLight claim it is, should offer a substantially computer friendly free version or a time-limited trial version to say the least. Even then, $20 is a lot to ask for something that plays media on your computer. Most users have windows, which includes Windows Media Player. Winamp has a very powerful Free player, and there are others out there such as Zoomplayer and DivX player.

If you read some of the other reviews you will find that RadLight's reputation is far from stellar. I am aggrivated to no end by a company that subverts new users into thinking they are getting something more out of a media player, when they are paying for less that what others deliver for free.

This is one of the last players I would choose to use on my computer.

The terms reputation and crediability are two of the most important things a product and the company producing it can next to the product it self. When either one is blemished it can be almost impossible to regain its former standing. Tylenol did it after the poisoning issue because they addressed and made corrective measures and already had a solid reputation and people believed them when they claimed it wasnt a QC issue. This product does not have a history of being crediable nor does it have a positive reputation among those who would buy it when another product that DOES have both is available. What does this mean?? No they dont believe you and yes they would rather use something else better rather then risk the same issues of the pastThe product shows nothing to set it apart from others of its kind except for a reputation that will doom it forever.

Scanned my system for malware before and after install. Before install, system did not have anything. After install, I got enliven, and a DSO exploit. Not sure if Radlight is the cause of that though. the scan(s) were dones with A2squared and spybot.
Now are far as the program itself. Looks like a winamp wannabe. It would not play any mpg file that I can watch with a differant player. I think it was a waste of time for me to even try it, but I wanted to see why everybody was hating on it. Personally, I would not recommend it to anybody, and not use it myself. It is uninstalling as I finish typing this

This company has such a nasty history of lying to its customers, hiding behind doublespeak, installing and UNINSTALLING software on users' computers without full disclosure and just downright having no respect for their customers that no one should even consider having anything to do with them or their product.

Seeing that there are dozens of good products out there that will do the same things as this one, and better, for free or for reasonable prices, there is no reason at all to even consider this one. Just go to the company site and read their adware/spyware link - what other media player these days has adware at all? Even if Savenow or Whenu or whatever doesn't send personal information, it is using your CPU and memory and bandwidth to bombard you with ads. Zoom Player, just to name one program, has a pro version that's five dollars cheaper and does a better job - and the free version respects the customer and installs no extra crap. Look around, there are plenty more. This company and this software deserve to die, regardless of how much they've tried to untarnish their image.

What I see its like this lot of people that just at looking at the name of the program jump and directly put 1 star, like when they see Real0ne, WMP, etc. And the best is that many of them are just trolling; read the reviews and look that many of them just come from months ago from the same people putting just one star. Radlight 3 CRAP, that was clear but this is Radlight4 wich is better. Sure this software is not my cup of tea, Im just happy with Wasabi Player (aka WA3). I bet 95% of you havent tested this one.
