Edit 3/4/20: I thought it was only fair to amend my review. For a week after the update it did not work. Then suddenly it started working. I made no changes to my device, did not even restart it. Don't know if tbe author did a quick fix or what, but it does not crash anymore trying to read files. [Old review] Great update guys! BSPlayer has been working fine for years, but now if I try to play my mp3 files on my SD card it freezes and dies. I dont have time for this.

The playback engine rewrite is a disaster. Network video playback jumps and skips constantly, regardless of any settings. I always liked this app, but it looks like it's time for an uninstall. Thank God for APKmirror. The older versions still work great, which is the only reason I'm still rating above one star.

Since making a playlist from files in Windows shared folders now really works, this is the best media player for Android, just as, in my opinion, it is the best media player for Windows, especially because it supports rare formats like RMVB. Thank you 😊 BTW, just a suggestion: maybe you could add the option to export and import the playlist to an external folder for backup and restore the playlist with files from Windows shared folders after app reinstalling or transfering to new phone. 😊
