Excellent video player MX Player Pro is /WELL/ worth it. Doesn't matter what device you have it always gives fantastic playback quality and perfomance using the specific platform code packs. Also much better at playing youtube and other streaming video than the corresponding app. *LOVE* the audio-sync feature!
Simply the best... not for now I love the easy acces controls without disturbing the viewing with side toolbars or such. Plus it handles all the video formats, plus subs (srt, sub, etc)... EDIT Nov16: Down to 1 star...I've been too patient with bugous subs over smb. It fails to save a dowloaded subtitle when I'm playing a video from a smb share in my network, launched from ESExplorer. It tries to save in the same location as the video (which fails, of course) and totally ignores the default folder (which allows write).
This was good, until the last update. Now it sucks, it has a hard time playing files that it played perfect, before the update. I had to pull out a backup Android box, that i had this installed on several months ago. It has version 1.7.40 installed on it and now everything is good. When a software maker updates and ruins a great software (Like most do), they MUST give their paying customers a downgrade option.
Downgraded Great player, ac3 audio problem put me off for a while, but found the remedy via their support forum. Everything working as normal now. Dropping one star as shouldn't need to side load codecs when other players can have them installed as standard.
Agh Good player but MY GOODNESS fix this dang problem I'm having with my videos being stopped and getting restarted from the very beginning when my Bluetooth disconnects. It's very annoying. And yes I have resume selected. It doesn't work
Great video player, but has a huge problem EDIT: I just did some research, and found out that a recent update on my tablet had the potential to create problems with some programs, and this was one of them. Upgrading my score to reflect this. Original review follows: This player was one of my favorites, and it had a ton of features I enjoyed.. Problem is, for some reason it uninstalled on my tablet, and when I try to re-install it, Google Play store just crashes. Still works fine on my phone, at least, but sometimes I want to watch on a larger screen. If this problem gets fixed, I will gladly upgrade my score to 5 stars.
