Awesome player~ Deserves support! Wish it can play VOB files... DVD movies on Galaxy S2 would look great~! Update: looks like it supports VOB files now. Haven't tested, but that's awesome!
Nothing else compares No stock video player, Apple or 3rd party player comes close to this. You can cue fwd and back by dragging your finger! No one else does that. I ALWAYS install this app.
Just when I went pro. Just when I went pro with my Galaxy S6, mx player couldn't play streaming video. Please fix this. I still can use free mx player for video streaming on my Galaxy Note II. I should go free then.
Best video player I've tried! This app works when other players can't play the files or when the files don't play smoothly. This app is much better than VLC. This is the Swiss Army knife video player of the Android world. It's well worth the money! The only thing I wish it had was Cast support... Not gonna down rate it for that though...
Player now stops when screen locked using h/w codec With the recent update, the players stop when I lock the screen. If I switch to software decoder it works fine. I've tried all the different lock modes and none of them seem to work properly. I like to listen to video but not necessarily watch it so I lock my screen to save power but using software decoder also depletes the battery faster. Seems to be MKV files that utilize the hardware decoder. This problem was introduced recently. Samsung Galaxy s5.
This was the only player that I found that could handle multi language audio, styled subtitles and hi-10 mkv files. DTS & AC3 audio are supported via custom codec from XDA forums. Very impressive! One major flaw of this app is that it breaks every time Android is upgraded.
I'm giving this 5 stars because the video/embedded audio playback quality is rock solid...just phenomenal! I do have some caveats with respect to certain quirks. 1) Since this is billed as a video player (and it is), it's strange that it searches out the Music folder on my extSdCard and includes its contents in the list of found videos, showing 1 video for each sub-folder with a blank black thumbnail. If selected it plays a song from that folder with a blank video screen. The app should just igonore this folder, and I don't want to put a .nomedia there or music player apps will also ignore it. 2) No embedded closed caption support yet (coming per developer) in played .vobs. 3) No DVD menu functionality when playing VIDEO_TS folders; also no smooth transition between .vobs. I'll survive...
Added an option for selecting action on headset disconnected under Settings > Audio.
