About this app

LPlayer is a video player that helps you translate text or words of subtitles, get the meaning of phrases and words of foreign languages or something complex/unknown on your native language

If you are studying a foreign language then you are possibly trying to watch movies, films or tv series in their original language
This app will help you understand phrases and words you don't know when you have such videos with subtitles in a foreign language

It can also be useful when you watch documentary, scientific, etc. films on your native language to get the meaning of difficult/unknown phrases, words, terms, abbreviations

When you play a video with subtitles you can:
- select the phrases and words in the subtitles to open them in a translate or dictionary app (see the list of available apps below)
- move (seek) between subtitles (phrases), repeat current subtitle using buttons or gestures

If you don't have subtitles for some videos on your device you can try to find and download them using this app ("Menu/Subtitles/Search Subtitles")

p.s. it's better to use external subtitles (e.g. "") otherwise when you play a new video and that video takes ~1GB or more you may need to wait for internal subtitles to prepare all features

Best player for learning languages. Only one problem: sometimes it may take some time to resume video after pause, it's a bit annoying especially when you stop video too often to understand text in the subtitles. Hope this bug will be fixed. Also, would be great if I could move subtitles to left or right corner instead of center. Very sad that there were no major updates in the last half year, I'm really waiting for new updates.

Very great application for watching content while learning English. it would be really nice if you guys adds features like subtitles cues alongside video so that we don't have to pause and goto option and watch it plus it would be so much comfortable to keep track on understanding of subtitles. So please add a pannel of subtitles cues which would show further subtitles plus already passed few, while side by side watching content without pausing etc.

It used to be one of the best video players for language learning I even purchased the full version. But the latest update ruined the app: browsing took long to open folders, also subtitle and audio synchronization are not consistent. Please fix and update.

You downloaded a video which has this issue with synchronizing. This is has nothing to do with the app. But you can just time using this app. How much browsing takes? I don't think it takes more than a 1 or 2 seconds on your device. In previous versions it was even longer but at opening app showed cached old data before it was updated.
