Review from Vishal Shah
Great player!! The latest update seems to be broken. It FCs immediately at start. Galaxy S, CM 10.1 (JB)
Great player. Just got an update sure would like to know what it was for. It would only be polite to say what it is!_________________________________Plays ALL video files. This video player is worth every penny. The UI is both beautiful and functional and a wonderful widget thrown in plus it plays every file I've thrown at it, some that don't work on other players. The developers have excelled. Looks great on my Samsung Galaxy NotePro tablet. This is what you want in a pro player.
License Verification I live in China and this program keeps trying to randomly connect to Google to check the program license is real. It is a very big hassle since we don't have access to Google here. I already verified it more than 10 times. How do I disable this!??
This is our home setup: Synology NAS (as DLNA server) -> a decent WiFi Router -> Android TVs (Nexus Players) -> Archos -> MX Player (with custom codec). We have four TVs hooked up this way, plus phones, tablets and PCs around the house, and Archos on android TV presents movies and TV shows beautifully with posters. There are lots of hoops to jump through but once all setup it's like having your private Netflix that's fast, reliable, high definition, can steams to tens of screens at the same time and doesn't use WAN. Archos should consider making a light weight app that's just a DLNA media browser which always hands off actually playback to other apps, then focus development efforts on curating content such as highlighting latest movies or episodes, pulling in imdb/rottentomato scores, show youtube trailers... etc.
Program plays everythin but... When ever i restart the program either on my phone, tablet or tv box it constantly wipes the list of tv shows and movies and have to wait 20 minutes before they reappear again to watch anything very frustrating
AC3? So I would give this more than 1 star, but the first thing I go to watch it tells me AC3 not supported. Not a great start....
Had to buy separate plugin Really?!?! Why do I have to buy an expensive plugin to play MPEG? Stick with VLC
