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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros & Cons:
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.
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.
