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.

The interface, features and functions are very well made. The only problem with this player is that it lags or it is choppy when playing mkv with 10bit encoding. Watching animes in this player is tolerable, but seeing that my HTC One X+ should play those files with less effort is kind of a dissapppointment. 04/22/2024 After not using it for a long time, i tried it again, it suddenly installed pandora app without my concent. I was clicking back nd exit on the ad in which it did not let me do.

This is one of, if not the most useful media player I have found. However, every time the program is started it copies data from the device's clipboard. An insidious method of collecting data. User Names? Copied. Passwords? Copied. Phone Numbers? Copied. Private Images? Copied. Copy something useless or clear the clipboard before starting this program. I would give it four stars except the data theft thing.
