MX Player: Powerful media player with background playback and new HW decoder
Wednesday 03rd of October 2012
Our Android devices are our pocket-size media hubs. We store our music files in them and listen to them while on the road. We also store our favorite videos so we can watch them whenever we want. Our Android devices have default music and video player apps that can play media files. But, if you want a player with more features, you should try installing third-party media players on your Android device. The Google Play Store offers numerous media player apps and one of those is the MX Player.The MX Player has been sitting on most Android devices due to the fact that it supports a lot of file formats. If that wasn’t enough, the app has also been recently updated. The app now packs a new H/W+ decoder, support for Tegra 3-powered devices, Vietnamese language translations, and background playback.When you open the app, it automatically scans for media files on your Android device. No need to manually add them to the player. But, in case your media files aren’t detected, you can manually add the file extension of the media files so the app can automatically add your files when
RealPlayer is a WIP media player with potential [Video App Reviews]
Friday 25th of June 2010
Real Networks was once one of the most recognizable brands in online media; then people wised up and switched to MP3 downloads and streaming services. Though its notoriety in music has fallen, Real hasn’t disappeared from music completely – it still has an Android app worthy of a glance and a listen.Real Player is a media management and playback tool that handles music, video, and photographs. It’s not the prettiest app in any bunch, and is still in beta, meaning users are likely to discover bugs and errors. (For me, this typically happens when using the slideshow feature). However, those willing to stomach these shortcomings will be rewarded with options not available in the default Music app.Music can be viewed according to Artists, Albums, Genres, Ratings, Most Played, and Recently Added. The ability to easily slide between sections is one of the major reasons I loved Sony’s Mediascape, and RealPlayer is a pleasure to use if songs in your library are appropriately tagged. The great playback feature makes it much easier to deal with the awkward appearance. Here’s a video
Media player with a stop button
Tuesday 10th of January 2012
Hello all, I've downloaded and uninstalled a few highly recommended media players as I'm looking for one that can stop and go back to the beginning of the song, rather than just pause a song. I guess I'm too used to the Windows player. Does such a player exist for my Vizio tablet? Thanks so much! Sent from my VTAB1008 using Android Tablet Forum

Searching for a WiFi Media Player with HDD support
Tuesday 02nd of October 2012
Hi everyone,I'm trying to find a WiFi (n) media player for my bedroom TV to stream internet channels like Youtube etc. as well as being able to play back movies from an external USB HDD.Doesn't have to have a Blue-ray drive.Most important part is that it has a good WiFi reception and NTFS HDD support. Must have video playback capabilities: Xvid, MKV, h.264, mov everything else is secondary.I've been looking for hours but couldn't find a serious device that offers all of that while still being reasonably priced or reliable.Often the WiFi capabilities are sub par so it's really important to have good WiFi reception.Does not require Android OS - if you know of another device that meets the above requirements just post the model name and manufacturer and I look into it.I hope someone here has some streaming experience with such devices Thanks in advance!
