[Feature Request] Widget

Hello

I use MX player for a few years now and I think it really miss a widget feature.

Something like the Samsung Video widget.

It would allow to simply start/resume the current video playback, directly from the homescreen.

Would it be possible to add this feature to MX Player?
Maybe on the Pro version?

Regards.

Right now, the closest you can get to that is opening the app, and using the Play button at the top of the video menu screen.

If you really want a home screen play button to cut out that one step, an interim fix would be Tasker.

I see what you mean, but this method is quite similar to the usual practice :
- opening of MX Player app
- launching of the video (from the "play" bouton that you mentioned, or by clicking the video name in the files list)

The widget allows to resume the video with only one action, directly from the homescreen.

More over, the widget can provide informations about the current video (title/episode number, elapsed time,...).

Something like the Samsung Video widget here under :

This was already recorded on the Feature Requests list even on the old forum; bumping this won't make any more difference unless there's more details to add.

For reference, link to old forum topic on this request: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/mx...XkY/discussion
