5 Video players apps for Android.

The basic video player for most Android devices, is quite dull and lacks support for most common video codecs. So if you get an Android phone, you’ll definitely need a third party video players unless you want to spend your life converting videos to your phone’s supported format. Here’s our pick of the top 5 video players for Android.

5: Rock player LITE

The free version of the app has ads and it’s a massive 13MB. That being said it can be moved to the SDcard and it does play all major video formats and automatically loads .srt subtitle files aswell as long as they have the same name as the video file for which they are for. You can also tweak the settings a bit but there is nothing major in there. Basically you can choose to change the subtitle color, display FPS and batter percentage and a few more settings.

4: Mobo Player

Mobo player a bit more up its sleeve than Rock player. It has a software decoding and hardware decoding mode, supports .srt .ass and .saa subtitle files. You can also choose to stream video from an external source such as a PC. This one is free aswell.

3: Act 1 Video Player

I don’t know how they came up with that name or the inspiration behind it, but Act 1 does the job for .3GP, H.263 and H.264 format files. There is also partial support for .MP4 files. It supports .srt files for subtitles, onscreen clock, battery percentage, a iPhone-esque seekbar and plays videos from where you left them off. It’s a tiny 261k player and costs $2.79 which might be a bit steep since it doesn’t support a lot of formats.

2: Real Player

While the previous players may be functional enough, their user interfaces are a bit dull. This is where Real Player comes in. It has a quality feel to it and the blue-ish UI looks cool. It is currently in Beta stage and will play any file format your device currently supports. The app also plays music files so you can use it as a music player aswell.

1: VPlayer

You can get the trial version off the Android market which works for a week after which you’ll need to buy this VPlayer Unlocker for $5.01. This makes it the most expensive video player of the five, but then it is easily the best video player you can find. It supports a wide variety of formats such as divx, wmv, flv, avi, mkv, mp4 and 3gp among others and you can add .ssa, .ass, .srt and .sub subtitle files. The app has a simple interface, opening it leads you to a file manager, you can browse to your video file and start playing it. There is no fancy interface and all you get is the same look as a default File Manager. On the upside, it works without any hiccups and plays every file you throw at it.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
