Connects to internet too much

    Every time I start UMPlayer, it makes internet-connection attempts. There is no reason for it to be connecting to the internet when I start it to play a video located on my hard drive. UMPlayer should not connect to the internet ever, except for if I do a Youtube video search. That's the only exception!

    I don't trust programs that make internet connections for inexplicable reasons. I have uninstalled UMPlayer from all my machines for this reason.

    That's odd, UMP should only try to connect to the update server once every 7 days to check if a new version is available and should not attempt to connect eveytime its loaded, that is unless you've blocked access to the update service in which case it will attempt to connect until it received notification.
