You can watch or listen to all your own media or they also have shows and movies you can watch! I have a preloaded default video player on my device but MX Player is better and I put it on all my devices. It installs fast & doesn't hog space & works flawlessly. If I could give 10 stars I would but it only allows 5. Don't bother with other media players, this one is worth your time.

Great app. But the widget is too sensitive and opens the main player far too easily. I would highly recommend that you put a button in underneath that heart or make it so when you touch the musical note that is spinning & that will open the main player. Truly a pain in the behind when it keeps opening the main player and all I am trying to do is advance through tracks. The whole point of a widget is so you can operate it from the home screen, because it is not the main player interface.

This is *the* best player out there, with one *very* annoying exception. It cannot play the the audio of video files encoded in AC3. And since video files that are audio encoded in AC3 have been becoming more and more common lately, I am forced to use this app less and less and instead use inferior players I am forced to tolerate because at least I can hear the video files with them. Get your act together already, MX Player.
