MX Player v/s HBO

MX Player v/s HBO 


Nowadays OTT stages are progressing at a quicker rate. With so many OTT platforms available, it’s quite hard to choose any one of them.

So, let’s get into why (or why not) MX Player or HBO deserves your hard-earned cash.

 

MX Player 

MX Player OTT app is an Indian video streaming and video on demand platform developed by MX Media & Entertainment. It has over 280 million users globally. The platform currently operates on an ad-supported model and has a streaming library of over 150,000 hours across 12 languages. It is available on iOS, Android, and the web.MX Player. OTT App is a powerful video player that supports all-format audio (including AC-3), advanced hardware acceleration, and subtitle support. Furthermore, it provides online streaming of TV Shows, Movies, Web Series, Music & More in HD Quality.


Features:
1. Great playback features:

MX player platforms in India can play almost any video file in existence. Stock video players usually only support 3GPP, MPEG-4, and WebM video formats, where MX players can play 10 different formats, including AVI, FLV, MKV, and MOV, those being the most commonly used file formats for videos


2. Support for subtitles

Sometimes you just need those subtitles, being it because you do not speak the language of the video, the video is too quiet, or whatever reason you need for them. MX player OTT app allows you to manually explore your local storage to find subtitle files and include them in your video playback. If the subtitle file has the same name as the video file, and it is located in the same folder, the MX player will automatically add it by itself.


3. Audio boost

If the software decoder is enabled for the video, its volume can be boosted by up to 200%, so you will not have to focus really hard on quiet videos anymore. It is not recommended to use this feature often, however, as it may lead to damaging your speakers.



4. Streaming online videos

MX player does not only allow you to play files from your local storage, it can also stream video files from the internet or your local file server. MX player OTT app is automatically launched when a video link with great playback features has been clicked in the browser, so you will not even have to configure anything.

5. Swipe gestures

MX player has a set of swipe gestures which are very useful when playing a video. If you swipe up or down using one finger on the left side of the screen, the screen brightness will go up or down accordingly. If you swipe on the right side of the screen, the volume will change. Swiping with two fingers up or down changes the video playback speed, where swiping left or right using one finger can be used to seek through the video. These swipe gestures are very useful in video playback and are very well done in the MX player.

Now let's compare both the OTT App's and see which one is better to use.


MX Player:

Pros:

-Hardware acceleration

Hardware acceleration can be used for video playback to help in the app’s HW+ mode. This allows for smoother video playback as well as better playback of higher resolutions.

-Built-in touch lock feature

It is possible to have videos played in touch lock mode. It is also possible to hide watermarks or display the player's touch locked status.

Cons:

-No ac3 support

There is no ac3 audio support.

  •  No Chromecast support

    Not having Chromecast support severely limits the usefulness of the app to those that use said service, especially when many other video apps support it.


HBO:

Pros:

  • You get to watch a bunch of brand-new highly anticipated blockbuster movies for a reasonable monthly price without having to leave the comfort or safety of our homes.


  • With the money saved on tickets, concessions, gas, parking, Ubers, and babysitters, more people will hopefully start to invest in better TVs.

  • This makes seeing new movies much more accessible for people with disabilities, people who don’t live close to a theater.

  • You don’t have to sit through a bunch of commercials before the movie.

Cons:

  • This is a massive blow to the movie theater industry, which was already suffering - especially smaller independently-run theaters and it affects the thousands of people employed by theaters of any size.

  • The HBO Max app needs some work! It doesn’t look great anywhere, it’s a buggy mess on consoles and it doesn’t exist on a variety of smart TVs, Roku devices, or PlayStation 5 yet.

Pricing:

MX Player:

MXPlayer is available absolutely free of cost for users to explore.

 HBO:

In our general overview, we would say that MX Player provides users with syndicated content along with its own originals and streaming service is completely free of cost. While HBO OTT app is home to the shows and films that everyone is talking about, from groundbreaking series and documentaries to the biggest blockbuster movies ever made.
