MX Player Description

MX Player is one of the first video players for Android devices that uses multi-core coding; this means that the app will work 70% more efficiently than methods that only use a single-core setup. The customization options and unparalleled subtitle support makes MX Player one of the best video players you can find in the play store today.


One of my favorite things about using MX Player is the built-in kids lock feature which keeps the kiddos from messing up their video while it plays. Instead of them accidentally pausing, restarting, or closing out their movie, I can set the kids lock feature so that anytime they touch the screen a whimsical image, like a butterfly or flower, will appear instead of ruining the show for them.

Longer Battery Life

The MX Player uses advanced hardware acceleration to use your device more efficiently. Because the app only uses 162-mW of power, your phone or tablets battery life will naturally last much longer, which means more time to watch videos on your device. This is especially helpful when you are using the app on the road or during plane rides as you don't have to worry about your device powering down halfway through a show or movie.


Simple Gestures Streamline Your Experience

Nothing frustrates me more than an application that makes it difficult to pause, rewind, fast-forward, or stop a video. Luckily, the developers for MX Player have included a series of easy to learn commands that make navigating the app far more straightforward than some of those other video players!


The simple swiping, pinching and tapping gestures are simple enough for younger children to master as well so you won't have to worry about constant requests to fix a video if you have kids lock turned off.


Supports All Video Formats & Offers Unparalleled Subtitle Support

Another frustrating aspect of using digital video players is finding one that only plays specific file types. Because I download a lot of my content online, I have many movies and videos that are under less common file types. Now that I've started using MX Player, I don't have to worry about what format I'm downloading my content in because they are all recognized by the app.


MX Player has definitely streamlined the way my family and I watch movies on our devices. The kids lock feature alone is a welcome addition to the app and makes it more than worth the download if you have kids.
