Hello MI Community Members,
How are you? I hope you all are fine. Our App Resources Team always focuses on sharing the best quality apps to our fellow Mi Fans. In addition to our weekly collection and App Trend, we bring you a new series - App Showdown. In this series we will compare two apps and give you a detailed analysis of the comparison.
First of all, I wanna say sorry for the late App Showdown thread . Well, in this series we discuss about the best video player for Android, VLC Player and MX Player. Both application are very popular and many people using it for a long time, and also become Google Playstore Editors' Choice. With VLC and MX Player, user can easily watching video and hearing music, any time, anywhere. Now tell me, which team are you? #TeamVLC or #TeamMX
VLC Player For Android, a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player that come from VideoLabs 17 years ago (2001) but come to Android in 2012. VLC compatible with many platform such as Windows NT, Windows Phone, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Apple TV, Tizen, OS/2, Xbox One system software.
VLC has simple UI and clean design. You will love it when I said VLC is free and ads-free. With VLC Player you can easily watch video with many great feature such as subtitle, gesture, playlist and many more. What kind of video format suitable with this app? Well, almost all of video formats can be play on VLC. VLC also compatible with PC and phone. Very nice! Surprisingly, VLC isn't only video player application, but also audio player with a complete database, an equalizer and filters, playing all kind of audio formats. You need Android 2.3 or above to install this application.
Meanwhile J2 Interactive, Korea developed another great video player application a year earlier from VLC, called MX Player. The developer describes that MX Player is a powerful video player with advanced hardware acceleration and subtitle support. Yes, I agree with that! MX Player has 2 versions app, Free and Premium. If you like to watch video without annoying advertising, I suggest you to purchase the Premium version of MX Player.
MX Player come with many useful feature such as subtitle, video re-sizing, dark mode theme (for India only), simple UI, and Children protection feature (named Kids Lock). Kids Lock will keep your kids entertained without having to worry that they can make calls or touch other apps. This app also user-friendly UI, easy-to-use interface and the ability to run videos of almost all sorts and media formats. Like VLC. you can also play audio file with this app.
MX player also supports many format subtitles, such as SubStationAlpha(.ssa/.ass), SAMI(.smi), SubRip(.srt), MicroDVD(.sub), VobSub(.sub/.idx), SubViewer2.0(.sub),MPL2(.mpl), and many more. In June 2018, Times Internet has invested Rs 1,000 to acquire a majority stake in MX Player, the world’s largest local video platform, as it prepares to enter the over-the-top (OTT) video streaming sector, taking on the likes of Netflix and Amazon in India.
