Simple Player by Android is another free video player which requires no extra codec installation to play most of the video file formats. Simple Player is as simple as a zip file. Unlike the MX Media Player, which comes with a rich and user-friendly interface, Simple Player comes with a simple interface. You can browse videos either by date or by type. You can also select one video from the list or you can even add your own video list with a bookmark feature.
MX Media Player comes with a very friendly and user-friendly interface that allows you to browse and switch between videos, playlists, custom content, subtitles etc. MX Player also allows you to view one subtitle file at a time and you can also reorder them. MX Player supports multiple subtitles, chapters, timings, aspect ratios etc. with a single tap.
I have not seen a mobile player that supports more video formats than MX Media Player. MX Player supports MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI, Xvid, FLV, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC, DTS, DIVX, MOV, 3GP, 3GPP, WAV, WMA, OGG, OGM, MP4 etc. MX Player supports all major and latest formats with no need of codec installation and it also supports all popular audio file formats including AAC, AC3, AMR, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, MP3, VORBIS, OGG, FLAC, MIDI etc. MX Player offers smooth full-screen playback in all resolutions except for VGA (640x480). In fact, it includes a feature that automatically hides the app from the recent apps menu.
The other option is to use MX Player to convert the file into another format that MX Player recognizes. Several video formats can be converted to MX Player by mediainfo . In case of MX Player error, simply convert the file to MX Player format with mediainfo.
