A terrific video player if that is what you are looking for. Handles all file formats with ease. However, it has the problem of the UI being made by programmers rather than people who know anything about design. UI is honestly hot garbage, but the player is amazing.

Good promise, but very underdeveloped. I love mpv on PC, and this app lets me watch mkv files while the default player doesn't. However, this app currently doesn't support pausing by tapping your earbuds, which means that you have to take out your phone just to pause a video. I can't do that at work. I can't use this. It's also difficult just to get it to move forward in a playlist properly. It comes with a file manager that can't sort by date, and it doesn't work seamlessly with Gallery.

MPV is my go-to media player on both macOS and Windows. I'm glad to see this android port works very well and it works exactly in the manner I want: no fancy Library view, just a Files view to navigate and play smoothly. The playback interface is minimal, swipe right/left to seek, swipe up/down to change brightness or volume. This is all I want personally for a media player on mobile.
