Editors' review

With its support for most video formats and excellent performance, MX Player stands out as a high-quality app in a category saturated by unoptimized or ad-infested players. It plays almost everything and does it smoothly, saving you the trouble of having to mess with video converters.

Pros

Powerful: MX Player's hardware acceleration and multicore decoding really work on devices with strong CPUs and enough RAM, providing a graceful, flowing playback experience even for three-hour-long HD films.

Responsive hand gestures: The sensitive fast-forward, rewind, swiping, and pinching to zoom in and pan finger gestures make this player great for re-watching favorites.

Streamlined design: From the minimal interface to the resume playback option to the handy subtitle customization and video playback preferences, this app puts at your fingertips all the features and options you need to customize your viewing experience.

Cons

Occasional quirks: With the high-performance H/W decoder on, the player sometimes skips longer HD videos, just refusing to play them -- they appear as grayed out in the playlist. Switching to the software S/W decoder fixes the problem.

Intrusive ads: While not plagued by ads like other free players, this one displays an annoying ad atop the screen when video playback is stopped. Though it disappears once you press play, it's still annoying.

Bottom Line

Sleek and potent, MX Player impresses with its built-in codecs and decoders, as well as with its handy screen gestures. It's certainly one of the best Android players out there. Overall, this app feels like the Android equivalent of the desktop VLC.

    "EXCELLENT VIDEO PLAYER FOR ANDROID"

    August 29, 2013   |   By Mattdoes

    Version: MX Video Player 1.4c

    Pros

    Great tool for Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 running Gingerbread. Plays everything I've thrown at it. Although it offers hardware decoding, I prefer to use the software decoding because it includes volume increase. The volume boost for videos is also handy on my tab with the little speaker! love the zoom function on small screen. swipe to fast forward/reverse is good, too. one min per swipe about - good to just go back and catch the line you missed without jumping minutes away and searching for where you were.

    Cons

    in the free version, it is ad supported. the ads are TERRIBLE! they are things like "Your device is infected with 4 viruses" "Emergency! Terrible virus is destroying your device" Things like that. For people who might take that seriously, it seriously BITES. Ads are okay, but IMHO you shouldn't throw things like THAT at people.

    Summary

    Super video program! Highly recommended!

    Updated on Aug 29, 2013

    BTW recently used it, too, to play a network stream and it excelled at that, too!
