Best Video Player Apps for Android! (Feature Comparison)

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

Hey guys nose Meister here with Android police today I wanted to show you some of my favorite video players for Android as there are so many options in the Play Store and it's hard to know which one is the best one just a heads up all these video players are pretty

Well known so you may be familiar with the few if not all but I will explain what makes each one stand out from the crowd the pros and cons and in the end tell you which one is my overall favorite let's started off with a

Classic VLC for Android this video player can play just about any video or audio file you throw out it while also supporting subtitles teletext and closed captions within the app it'll show you all of your local videos audio and

Supports network streaming when you play a video the layout is simple and easy to use but also has a ton of features hidden within it such as gesture controls for time seeking brightness and volume it also has a sleep timer you can

Change the playback speed and audio equalizer optimize the aspect ratio and more but what I really love is that it supports picture-in-picture mode for audio devices which surprisingly not a lot of Android video players have yet

Plus is completely free with no in-app purchases which is a plus for me the only downside is that the categorization of videos is not great and I have recently seen a couple users complaining about their audio playlist being deleted

After the app gets updated next on this list is MX player you're probably familiar with this one as well but if you don't know its full potential then let me just show you right off the bat this app can't solely play your audio

Files so it only focuses on playing your videos nonetheless the video player is still great as it's easy to use and packed with tons of features it supports a wide range of file formats hardware acceleration screen lock caching

Controls custom zoom local and online subtitles which you can customize playback speed network stream sleep timer and more it's a pretty solid video player but the only downside is that it doesn't support DTS and ac3 audio files

Out of the box due to licensing issues and there are ads which you can remove if you pay a hefty $5.99 still it's an excellent video player that gives you a good video experience video player all format is next on this list

It also doesn't support audio files but what I love about this video player is that it has unique features that most of its competitors don't have so along with the usual settings such as gesture control sleep timer playback speed

Subtitles and more they also include a nine mode option which dims the video no matter how high your brightness is it supports cast so you can load up your videos on to another screen such as e TV hooked up

To e chromecast you can preview the video when you adjust your position on the seekbar lock videos with a pin to keep them private and you can quickly switch to another video thanks to the video playlist menu it's definitely

Feature packed and I appreciate how much of them are easily accessible so I don't have to find them deep within a menu I also couldn't find any deal-breakers but there are ads which aren't too intrusive a single payment of three dollars and 99

Cents will remove them this is the highest rated video player on the Play Store and it definitely shows within the user experience if you're looking for a multimedia player that has a material design mobile player is a great choice

The interface is simple clean and loads everything quickly when playing a video or audio file it can do the usual but also includes full player which is similar to the picture-in-picture mode you can push the video on to a DLNA

Device loop a certain part of the video rotate the picture capture you frame to save as a PNG file cut the video into a jiff and more so it does have a ton of unique features with a great looking interface but I did find a few bugs such

As in the full player and sometimes it does force close it feels like it's still in beta nonetheless it's completely free so if you're looking for a nice looking video player give it a try this last android video player is a

Solid choice it has a similar interface to MX player but doesn't overwhelm you with a ton of fancy features that you'll never use it keeps it nice and simple with only what's necessary this includes gesture controls sleep timer playback

Speed cast and Sceptile support window mode audio or subtitle offset if playback isn't in sync you can stream videos from a website or a local network and more nothing crazy there are ads but nothing annoying overall it's a simple

Video player that gets the job done anyways those are my top picks to replace your stock featureless video player personally I'm going to use video player all format because it's packed with tons of features which are all

Easily accessible and I haven't experienced any issues with this one at all aside from not having picture-in-picture mode or video streaming this will provide me with a great video experience let me know in
