A very solid player that I've been using for a decade. The level of ads is a bit much, but understandable. However, ads as push notifications is absolutely ridiculous. Do yourself a favor and disable all notifications from this app immediately after you install it.

The best mobile media player I have found. I have used MX Player since my first android phone because MX Player was able to play videos that the system player could not. Today I use MX Player because it works as described and has excellent control features for playback. MX Player will also try to play corrupted or partially downloaded videos. Never had trouble with the ads but if you do, buy the app. This software has been supported for a long time and I imagine it will be in the future.

The old interface was better. Until recently we could switch from the old to the new. Sadlly, the new interface doesn't give me the option to shuffle songs (on my Android phone). So I've reduced my rating from five stars to three. But if you don't mind not being able to shuffle songs, MX is one of very few players that continues to play when minimized or when you turn off your phone's screen. That's the only reason I'm keeping it. Now I'm looking for one that does that AND allows song shuffling.
