With its additional video playback options and easy-to-use interface, mVideoPlayer is an upgrade over native Android video players. Whether viewing movies from outside sources or those taken by your device, the program performs well and even allows for viewing subtitles, if available in the video.
The free program's small size allows it to download and start quickly. The main menu does have some advertisements along the bottom, but they are less conspicuous compared to other programs. Buttons along the top allow for displaying watched and unfinished videos, sorting by criteria, and scanning for more files, among other options. Each selection is labeled clearly, making mVideoPlayer easy to use, right off the bat. The only hiccup for less-experienced users could be designating the folder where videos will be stored, which can be difficult. The main window displays videos on the phone by category, whether television, movies, or general videos. Navigating is accomplished by swiping left or right, which changes the screen. Touching the individual video file starts the playback. If a user is in their camera mode, selecting a video also brings up the program, where users can select it as the default playback option. You also can opt to display additional information during playback, including things like battery level. While playing a video, the screen displays standard controls, as well as options for showing subtitles. Users can also zoom in or out, and adjust brightness, features not often found on similar programs.
mVideoPlayer offers a rich selection of features and customization options and it's definitely a welcome replacement for native programs.
