Picture in picture (Pip)

Duplex Player provides support for Picture in picture (Pip); which means that you can play, cast and record two media content at the same time. When Pip powered with casting and recording you will have a lot of possibilities, for example: you can watch a movie while casting another one to your Kid’s TV.

Pip comes with several options to control its display, you can split the screen, or give a larger space for one player or even drag the players and adjust size/position as you want.

Casting to big screens

With traditional media players, the most common problem when casting to big screens is that “not all devices support all media formats, therefore casting may fail”. Duplex Player is designed to solve this problem. Duplex Player can cast any media content to any Chromecast and/or DLNA device such as smart TVs, XBOX, Media Renderers and etc. It doesn’t matter whether the device supports the format or not, Duplex Player will cast the content even if the device doesn’t support the format. For example, Chromecast doesn’t support .FLV files, with Duplex Player you can now cast .FLV and other files to Chromecast devices.

In addition, Duplex Player not only allows to cast while in Pip mode (casting two content at the same time), but it also allows casting each content to several casting devices. For example, you can cast the same movie to several Chromecast and/or DLNA devices at the same time.


Duplex Player will save your precious time by searching and downloading subtitles automatically for you. You can also browse available subtitles and choose the subtitle you need to download without leaving the app or searching on online sites. In addition to other features such as storing downloaded subtitles, loading local subtitles, configuring the appearance of subtitles, adjusting subtitle times and etc.


With a single tap, you can start and stop recording easily. You can record network streams to your device at any time. Even if you are using Pip, you can record each player separately.

Media Sources

In addition to playing files stored on you device or computer, Duplex Player provides quick access to your content on OneDrive and network Media Servers. You can browse and play stored content directly without the need to download to your storage. New media sources will be added in next releases to browse and play content from popular sites.


Duplex Player is designed to be user-friendly, all the features can be used without the need to close the running media and to open a menu and etc. The player is always docked at the bottom of the screen and you can switch to full screen at anytime. In addition, the home screen will provide a global view of the frequently used features such as quick play, casting, recording and recently played content.

In addition, it supports the common features such as creating and managing playlists, resuming from last played position, video rotation and mirroring, selecting audio/video track in videos with multiple tracks, support for all known video and audio formats including .dvd, .flv, .rm and …

Duplex Player has a fully functional trial version. It is in sale for only 0.99$ for a limited time, try it now.
