Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.
As far as the actual player goes, it seems more like an unfinished product than one for which I would be wiling to pay the current sale price offered of 14.95$USD. I will try it with actual DVDs and Bluray discs later, but it will not open subtitles on my other various video files. It does not even offer them as an option. All I get is an option that says "Do not show subtitle." It does not recognize .srt files. The manual you can read online, or download, is not very helpful. Options for settings are only available after you start a video file. There is no way, at least that I can find, for one to be able to choose options before actually running a video file. So it is a minimal playback app that really does not meet the needs I have for such players.
What I do like, and will continue to experiment with throughout the day, and perhaps the only reason I will keep this one installed, is the ability to do screen saves, screen recording, and GIFs. (My early attempts are not very good, but that may be more on my part than the player's.)
Over all, at the moment, I give it a thumbs down for lack of options.

I am confused! I already have Dimo 8K Player 4.5.0 bundled with several of the Dimo converters that have been given away in tha past... e.g. Dimo VideoMate 4.1
And other Dimo products some have older 8K Player executables.
The 8K player has a very spartan user interface that does not conform to WIndows norms or any of the converters user interfaces.
Also all of those embeded Dimo 8K players seem to spawn an executable in the users %TEMP% folder called "B319F132-73B7-4B84-B3D8-A4E053BBAD48.exe" That executable is built for windows 7 and above and fails to properly execute on Vista and earlier due to a missing export in KERNEL32.dll but once that error alert box is closed down the player launches.
It apears that incompatible executable contains an old renamed ffmpeg.exe built to run only on windows 7 or above.
Not wanting to waste my time installing a stand alone installation of exactly the same version I already have I downloaded 4.6.0 trial from their website and installed that... coppied over a ffmpeg.exe version 4.1 that has been built to run under Vista and maybe XP SP3 to the temp folder and renamed it to the name the program launches before starting and adjusted the permissions so the program could not overwrite the newer version of FFMPEG that I provided with it older and incompatible build... and it launched in same spartan and ugly GUI as previous 4.5.0 I could find nowhere to enter the giveaway license code or any indication that it was a trial build so maybe it picked up one of the previous Dimo giveaway licenses... I could find no way to make any conversion other than to output
a reduced dimension GIF file with no prefences to alter the specifications of the exported animated GIF file. It does not render any video at all if used within a remote desktop session which is very unusual since all other players I have can render in a Remote Desktop session, VLC, Zoom, Windows Media Player to name but a few that can play and render video in a remote desktop session, albeit at reduced frame rate, and providing better rendering if only rendering a smaller canvas size due to the extra processing overheads a remote desktop session produces. As usual Dimo products do not even render their user interfaces well under remote desktop regardless if the session colour depth is set to 32bit or not which also makes the non-standard user interface more difficult to use when it is inconsistent in its rendering.

Why does Dimo keep listing this or naming this software as an 8K player? There aren't to my knowledge any 8K videos in existence that most of you and I have access to. And, even if they were, the highest quality videos that it can play are up to 4K. Due to the different releases that I keep seeing of this software as a GAOTD offering, why can't this company be fair and call it DIMO 4K Player v.x.x.x, and then when 8K does become available create a brand new Dimo 8K Player 1.0.0? I know this is a somewhat picky question, but I feel that by naming it as an 8K player, Dimo is being somewhat deceptive in their naming. Has anyone else given this some thought?
I will now step down off my soapbox. lol

Think of the *8K* in the Dimo 8K Player as just part of the name. *If* you had 8K video files, and an 8K display, Dimo or VLC or a bunch of other players can handle it. 4k Blu-ray is more rare than regular 1080p, is more expensive, requires a more expensive standalone player, and hasn't achieved anywhere near the limited adoption or popularity of regular Blu-ray, so I think most people will use the Dimo 8K Player with standard 1080p Blu-rays, and that's fine. It'll still look good on a 4k TV, which are increasingly common -- how good it will look depends on the upscaling capabilities of that TV.
While the Dimo 8K Player has some extra features, like screen recording, that many won't bother with, it advertises Blu-ray/DVD support, which if you carefully read the feature list for VLC, is missing. Blu-ray discs use heavy amounts of DRM, which most players cannot handle -- VLC for example works with Blu-ray discs that have been copied with that DRM removed. So you either use special software to copy your Blu-ray discs, then use whatever player you like, or use Blu-ray player software that can handle the DRM.
Note: Cyberlink pays the necessary licensing fees so PowerDVD Ultra can handle Blu-ray DRM the same way as a standalone player. IOW it obeys it. Software that removes or bypasses that DRM, including players where those licensing fees have not been paid, will not always work, at least on the newest DRM until it's been figured out, so that's something to bear in mind if you rush out & buy or rent a movie the day it's available. OTOH Blu-ray DRM doesn't always work like it's supposed to, and can sometimes give you problems using a standalone player or something like PowerDVD Ultra.
The Blu-ray discs you buy use a Java-based menu system. Player software like PowerDVD Ultra can handle those, though some may find it a bit clunky opening a 2nd, smaller window with the navigation buttons you'd find on a remote control. Some other players, including VLC, now support Blu-ray Java menus, IF you install the 32 bit version of Java, which lots of people will not. The web site & manual for Blu-ray/DVD support are silent on the matter -- you likely just have to select the video title, e.g. movie or special feature, that you want to watch.
PowerDVD Ultra has options to improve the picture, or you can use madVR &/or the LAV Filter software, and some players have those last 2 built in. How much it matters depends on both your eyes and the TV you're using. How well, or if it works depends on the CPU/GPU of the PC. It doesn't take a lot of horsepower to play Blu-ray, though dual channel RAM definitely helps -- my miniPC running a Celeron does fine -- but those sorts of enhancements do require more powerful hardware.

I note from the link in the Readme file it says "copies left today" and 74 (now 55) on the page, although there idea of when tomorrow starts (and another 2000 become available) is hard to work out as they don't have an address I can find.
Oh and which version is this, I assume from the pricing and Blu-ray comments it's the "Power" one, although currently the Pro one is cheaper than the price listed above?
Also is there a privacy statement somewhere (I did look around the website), or are they going to watch and monetise everything you do? (Which is semi-reasonable in free software if stated, less so in paid software, but happens all the time of course.)

P.S. the installer in the GAotD archive appears to be just the installer and without a wrapper, but is different to the installer you get if you download from the activation link page. Okay, here you get 4.5.0 and there you get 4.6.0, although they both seem kinda clunky to me.
