    Been using for a long time. Overall fine. But since switch to mi video, i found its not as good as i tough. I watch from NAS and if wifi is lost for brief time it might not recover. And couldnt set it well for streaming, buffer quite a bit. Tested across 3 devices. Hence 4 stars only. Full Review

    According to me, it's the best video player, but it would be even more better if it could play multiple floating video windows at once... I hope to see that feature in next update so soon... I some times need such ability and I've found it in another apps, but with low performance, and I hope to be able to find this feature in my favorite app dispensing other low-performanced apps. Thank you for reading... Full Review

    Nothing but one full page ad after another - can't even play any video because you can't stop the advertising long enough to start one going. I've seen greedy authors but this player is nothing but a shill for advertising. TOTAL SHAM! Full Review

    It's a 5 star app, but having ads I can see and/or hear costs 1 star, having those ads fullscreen costs another star and asking me to rate costs a further star. Shame really. Full Review

    Akash Singh Published date: February 16, 2018

    No doubt the best app and have been using this since 5 years, but lately the ads have become intrusive. Every time i open the app an ad loads on full screen and if i touch screen before its loaded(which i do every time, to select a folder or file) it takes me to that ads link/playstore, and its annoying, infuriating and unacceptable. I understand there's a pro version to do away ad but I feel ads should be useful not inhibiting and i respect the amount of time and energy the developers have invested in development so i simply uninstalled it and moved to VLC. Hope to come back after these issues are sorted. Full Review

    For developers: when we use it as audio player using headphones then there is no facility of changing songs by pressing headphone button. This feature must be implemented to get a complete feel of music player. I hope the development team will add this feature soon. Full Review

    I've used MXplayer for years (ever since the Motorola backflip came out at leadt) and I've never had a single problem with it. I also use VLC but I prefer MX hands down. Pros: Easy to use and fairly intuitive; Small footprint and low run-time overhead; Wide range of supported formats FREE (note that the paid version is the same except that it is ad-free...); Not overly complex for the non-technical user (useful when I recommend it to non-technical people). Cons: Doesn't support some formats; Could have a few (usually unnecessary) options; ... (Sorry -- I can't think of any others...). I've recommended it to hundreds of friends, family, co-workers, and even people I don' particlarly like ;-) ... AND I will continue to do so. Full Review

    Everything is going good and I hope you are doing well but I am obsessed with only feature which is Audio Adjustment mode, in which I can adjust the audio according to the Video which is playing. I mean with this feature 100% accurate synchronization can be done of audio and video. This is my humble request. Full Review
