I used this player for a while and was generally happy despite having to deal with ads. I was really happy when they added video downloading. Despite having to navigate through hidden subfolders to get to my files, it worked. Recently they updated it in a way that breaks files and gives a "Video player error" screen in other players. Screw you MX Media.

This app is great for viewing most video files. It's a must for anyone that likes to use their smart phones as media players - having said that, I am blown away at the amount of ads on the free version. I'm fully understanding of the need for ads, by all means, but there is legitimately an ad every time you click within this app just about. An ad appears when you open the app, choose a video, pause your video, and close your video. It's absurd, truly. Far, far too many ads.

If rating were based on Prior experience using this app without having downloaded and used the app today, 5 stars would've been given without any hesitation but I'll have to agree with everyone else in regards to the obtrusive advertisement situation. They're very annoying, and time consuming. I can't speak for anyone else but I'd rather be given the option to pay a small fee to remove the ads than to have a "free" app that forces me to endure ads.
