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.

Hi! Clipboard access on MX is solely used to facilitate options to stream or download content if the clipboard content is a media URL. Rest assured, your privacy is our topmost priority, & your clipboard data is never used for any other purpose. We have shared your feedback with the relevant team.

Hi, I want to draw your attention to something. I think there's more you can do with the music part like adding Crossfade timer, playback speed at any desired speed, mp3 cutter, better UI for music player just like muzio/music player. Great job on this app by the way but I think users want more on the music player part and I hope you would consider my opinion, Thank you.

Shameful ads now blasting out music just when I pause the podcast. So I have to fumble around trying to shut it off when I was looking for a period of quiet. I do have the latest version. I switched to my podcast app's player. While I like MX Players ability to swype to go back or forward and adjust volume. 2023. Forgot I tried this years ago and now see it's insertion of ads, at any pause, is more intrusive than any other apps I have. Very annoying.
