I will give 3 stars for now. I'm using a 2013 moto g running android 5.1. I love mpv because I've been using it on both my windows and linux machines, so I'm excited when finding this app. Not all smooth sailing though. It might be only on my phone model, but the video doesn't play properly at all, like no image shows up at all, just a black screen and the video controls. Can you tell me what's happening here? Audio plays fine though. Also just an input from me, but I'd appreciate it if you could just tell the app to only read video files and/or music files, not reading every single files on the device
Used MPV go watch a 33Mbps film over SMB (from ES File Explorer). Film froze a few times, captions worked fine. Played the flac audio perfectly (mkv). Plex could not play the file without transcoding subtitles in, or even play the audio without further transcoding, so thanks for bringing this library to android. 😁 Touch interface needs improving. Hard to seek with precision in films, UI disappears before lifting fingers
Impressive. Best free player I've come across. Can handle everything (no codecs needed), and can handle it smoothly thanks to HW decoding. No adds! Etremely simple but you don't miss anything. My only complaint is the ugly color and the look of the file explorer which is too simplistic, (you don't know whether you're actually on SD card or where the heck you currently are).
i am no technician but even i can tell when seeking subtitles, position stay the same and no disappears. excellent subtitles renderer, is it because the player uses the latest libass (0.13.7)? ::btw, i send email with some requests::
Well this still in alpha, right. Player does a good job, the little trouble is: My video file is deep nested at (organized folder, per series). And this is the case 1). Open the video, pause it and back to file browser. When play again the same video it hasn't "resume from last position" feature. 2). It hasn't option to choose external subtitle (or audio) manually. 3). (Most annoying) Play video in landscape view, but when back to portrait mode it force me back to root folder. Because my video deep nested, automatically i am forced to browse again. 4). Also some x264 h10p videos look has heavy glitch. Hope you fix it. Great job dev!
Plays almost all 720p content I've thrown at it smoothly with perfect subtitle rendering, however most 1080p BD rips are a stuttery mess and unwatchable. Some parts in 720p also stutter after using the player for a while, I guess this is the notorious SD810 in my device (Xperia Z5) throttling itself as it gets hot very quickly when watching content. Also the stats overlay has stopped working since the latest update. With a better file browser and any possible tweaks to help improve 1080p playback this will easily be the best video player for Android, since the desktop version is one of the best as well.
The same as the previous release (2017-06-24), but has some quick fixes towards some crash bugs that were verified from Google Play store's analytics.
- Added a 5% dead-zone for the touch gestures on the top/bottom to enable easier usage of the Android status bar.
- Fixed a crash that happens during a seeking gesture.
- Fixed a crash that happens during opening of a content URL.
