DONATE TO ME
Hello, thanks for this great app.
I wanted to request something I think is a great feature, but then I was happy to see it already in the high priority list.

Popup Player: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/mx...MVc/discussion

But then I looked at the original thread and it dates back 2 years. Is there any word on development of this?

I see so many video apps successfully implement this and it seems to work wonderfully well for playing local files as well as streaming. For stress testing I even tried out large video files and heavy streams while loading up heavy apps and games and I never noticed lag or stutter, on my first generation nexus 7.

MX Player has always been my favorite android player since my nexus one, 4 years ago until today. And I would love to keep supporting it but I'm now downloading other players when I need floating video.

So I hope for some good news on development of this great feature, thanks!

I agree that this feature would be awesome!

This would be something for @bleu8888 to answer.
