mVideo Player is hand’s down the best replacement video player on the Android Market right now. And it is free! What we love about this video player is that it is coded very efficiently, keeping the use of system resources down, and hardly ever crashes. This light weight app allows you browse your video files as thumbnails, in a list view, and also supports poster views. mVideo also has other features such as subtitle support when watching movies, and free access to IMDB. The IMDB scraper transfers all the relevant information about the movie you are watching into the app. You can quickly look up actor names and more with the built in IMDB support.
For those looking to play obscure file formats, mVideo is not the Android app for you, as it only plays video formats already supported by your phone or tablet such as mp4, m4v and 3gp. You will have to convert obscure file formats into the phone supported formats to watch them on mVideo.
mVideo supports srt, ssa, ass, sbu/idx, mpl, smi, txt, sub, and sami subtitle formats. In addition it has a built in subtitle search powered by opensubtitles.org.
The interface is intuitive and very responsive. The app as a built-in track pad to navigate videos, or you can use the native Android finger swipes. There is also a key lock to prevent you from accidentally pausing, exiting or jumping around.
