Review: HD Video Player lets you play your favorite media files on the go

Enjoy playing videos on your mobile device using basic but intuitive HD Video Player.

HD Video Player locates videos on your Android device and plays them without any problem, but offers no additional options or features apart from constant advertisements. While not a top competitor in the world of mobile video, this application does provide intuitive controls and decent video and sound quality.

Once the application downloads, a pop-up notification requires the user to agree to the terms and conditions. These terms include the installation of a search tool and a suggested application browser. HD Video Player quickly detects all playable video files on your device, and lists them in alphabetical order with a thumbnail image. The bottom of the list is adorned with an advertisement banner. Videos are played by tapping the desired file, and playback can be done in portrait or landscape mode. The playback window is quite basic because this player does not support subtitles or multilanguage tracks. A navigation bar is located at the bottom of the screen to assist in scanning a video. The user can also scan through a video by swiping back and forth across the screen. Volume can be adjusted by swiping up and down on the right side of the screen, and brightness can be adjusted on the left side of the screen.

While HD Video Player offers decent performance, the pushed advertisements that pop up incessantly in the notification bar (regardless of the application's activity), can be annoying. Users who are looking for a basic playback app for their videos and at the same time don't mind the ads, might find this application useful, while those who are expecting a high-quality video player packed full of features should look elsewhere.
