Can't view albums by artist? I have no idea why this app is so highly rated. I tried it as an alternative to VLC but VLC smokes this app. MX Player doesn't seem to provide the basic capability of listing albums grouped by artist so you can quickly navigate to an artist, then select an album to play. You can either view all songs by an artist or search through the entire list of albums in your music collection, but can't select an artist and see all of their albums. Useless.

Hi, we are happy to let you know that your request has been shared with the relevant team for review and that we constantly update our app. Given that it is a business decision, if it is deemed to be viable, implementation may take some time.

ADS!! ADS!! ADS!! This used to be a good app for watching videos but the new management is apparently GREEDY!! Getting hit with commercials every time I close a video in addition to the usual "static" ads. I am going to uninstall and see if I can find a better app. Oh and the fact that the app still doesn't support MKV files (natively) after all these years should tell you something. They don't care. They are obviously milking it for every drop.

Hi Michael, please know that MX supports .mkv file format. However, if you are facing any issues while streaming the same, kindly write back to us with the screenshot of the error message, so that we can check it at our end and can assist you with the same.

For years this has been my go to player, absolutly perfect every time. No longer the case. Audio & video out of sync and many times video does not play at all. What gives? I don't think all the fault lies with the player as streaming vid online like Facebook and you tube or even commercials are doing the same. But I have switched players and am having success. So it isn't my device either.
